I’m very excited to be sharing my modelling world with my friends, family, everyone in the fashion industry and around the world.
I’m Elle King, a Barbadian model who’s always been fascinated with the idea of the catwalk. My modelling career started in Barbados during Barbados Fashion Week but while at the show I met a booker from New York and needless to say she liked what she saw, so once I finished school it was off to the Big Apple for me! Although modelling wasn’t my first choice (my dream is to study veterinary medicine as I love animals and science) in the end the camera got the better of me.
I’ve been fortunate to work in fashion locales such as New York, London, Milan and even as far as South Africa, Lithuania and Ecuador. I’m currently in Italy for Milan Fashion Week and on September 25th & 26th I was part of the interCHARM Milano Hair Show 2011.
Travelling all around the world can get crazy when I think about it! I can remember my first shoot with local designer Simon Peter and now I’m working with established international designers such as Emilio Pucci, Halston, Patricia Field, Tom Scott, Monique Lhuillier and Yeohlee Teng and brands such as Woolworths SA, Tchibo Germany, Tanqueray Gin, Vichy Normaderm by L’Oreal and the list continues to grow!
Over the next 3 weeks I will be working with Emilio Pucci , can’t wait to share those posts with you!
