Jamaican born Kai Newman representing #brownbeauty at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2015

Paris Couture Fashion Week ran from the 5th to the 9th of July, where leading fashion houses and specialist couture designers showcased their designs for AW15.

How did the #brownbeauty representation fare on the couture catwalk?

US blog Coloures has done an excellent job in collating this number and highlighting the models that walked.

Here are some of my favorite looks:

The model is as striking as the ensemble and I had to find out who she was! My joy increased when I discovered that the 5’10” beauty is Kai Newman who hails from nowhere else but Jamaica!! Whoop!!!!

19 year old Kai was discovered whilst walking home from the dentist with her mother in Allman Town, Jamaica in 2013 and was soon signed to agencies across the globe. She has walked for Burburry…
