Jamaican model Tami Williams is the first Caribbean model to be selected by Calvin Klein (CK),the global fashion behemoth, as the face of the brand for its Collection Fall 2015 Campaign, catapulting the young woman into the realm of superstardom.

Preliminary checks have revealed that no black model has done the ‘Collection’ campaign since the legendary supermodel Iman 33 years ago. The 17-year-old Williams now joins such names as Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, Natalia Vodionova, and more recently Lara Stone who have been made supermodels by the uber-prestigious Calvin Klein brand. Williams also shares the CK Collection spotlight with Grace Hertzel and Maartje Verhoef as a brand ambassador.

“The ubiquitous Calvin Klein brand’s global dominence lies in its commercial success and cross-generational appeal,” said Saint head honcho Deiwght Peters who could barely contain himself in an interview with the Jamaica Observer. “To get a sense of the magnitude of this news is to reflect on the brand’s advertising campaigns over the years.”

The present campaign was shot in New York City and is a moving cinematic masterpiece curated by visual artist Charels Atlas whose works have been exhibited in London,New York and Paris. He is a pioneer in the genre of media-dance which blends movement from original dance and video specifically for the camera. In the video, Tami is seen dancing elegantly to an 80’s rock vibe in the latest look for Calvin Klein Collection.

In global fashion circles the power and significance of a Calvin Klein Collections campaign to a models career is renowned and it is significant that Calvin Klein defines its Fall Collection as “our most prestigious and luxurious brand, setting the tone for elegance and modern sophistication”.
