Saint International’s Fashion Face 2018 winner, Oshane Flemmings, a mason by profession, had an unexpected early-morning surprise during his appearance on local television on Thursday he’s been signed by four modelling agencies in New York, London, Milan and Paris.
The 23-year-old Flemmings, a resident of Old Harbour, St Catherine, whose day job sees him as a manual labourer on construction sites, was given the life-changing revelation by Saint CEO Deiwght Peters during the live broadcast on CVM TV.
The agencies that will now roster the new star are Heroes Model Management in New York, Premier Model Management in London, Why Not Models in Milan and MP Models in Paris.
“I am really overjoyed. This is such great news,” an obviously excited Flemmings said, contemplating the new opportunities that being an internationally signed model will provide, primary of which will be his first time travelling on a plane. “Being given a chance to walk the runways for designers from New York to Paris and do magazine shoots is exciting to me, and I know that I have the potential to make it,” the stunning charcoal-black model said.
Peters revealed that Flemmings approached Saint International in November last year, and he immediately saw “star quality” but advised him that his cornrowed hairdo needed to go. Fast-forward to Saint’s Fashion Face competition in March 2018, with 13 international model agents in attendance, and Flemmings was declared the male face winner from a competitive field of 32 male models.
Peters is confident that Flemmings can join the ranks of such stellar Saint male models as Ralph Lauren campaign models Brad Allen and Brandon Bailey and Nordstrom and Topman campaign model Jonny B in making major moves in the international fashion industry.
“The feedback I have received on Oshane has been nothing short of phenomenal, and we’re eager to get him started internationally,” Peters said.
