Belizeans getting Fashion Forward on the runway

Belizean models and fashion designers, male and female, interested in regional and international exposure through Caribbean Fashion Week, are being scouted by a pair of seasoned industry insiders presently in the country.   Renowned fashionista Kingsley Cooper, founder of Pulse Modeling Agency, accompanied by his wife and fashion director, Romae Gordon, is here in search of promising talent.  The couple held a brief meet and greet this afternoon with a host of familiar faces.  According to Gordon, Belize is a hotbed of beautiful women and men waiting to be discovered.

“We’re interested in development of the industry here in belzie obviously. We know that talent abound everywhere; just walking about since I’ve been here in Belize, we’ve seen lots of great faces, beautiful women and so we are hoping that we could discover some of that talent here in Belize. And also on the design side, we do Caribbean Fashion Week which takes places June sixth to tenth in Kingston, Jamaica this year. And we are hoping also that we could find some talent who potentially could walk the runway of CFW or present collections at CFW from Belize.”

“So what’s the plan of action in order to discover these women?”

 

Romae Gordon

“Well this is the start obviously; meeting people and seeing what their potential is. Looking at portfolios for designers, looking at the models themselves, looking at the skill set to see if they are actually ready or we need to do more developmental work to get them ready; perhaps for another Caribbean Fashion Week. You know we start small, first meet and greet; discover what is behind the personalities in terms of the models. And certainly for the designers what is behind the designs in terms of creativity and what they can produce in terms of a collection to see if it is possible for them to be on Caribbean Fashion Week.”

“So while the ladies may have the look and the body type that is required for professional modeling career. Do they in your opinion so far has what it takes to be a professional model and what will be your next step to get to that level?”

“Well we are just now meeting people. Obviously we’ve been here just a couple of days so we are just now seeing some new faces, so I’m not able to tell you yet whether or not I’ve spotted anyone. But I am pretty sure that the word will get around that we are here and people will come with the hope of being discovered. So we are at the start right now. So until we meet and greet and see people and so on, at that point we can determine whether or not they can… I met with your Miss Belize in Jamaica when she was there. Rebecca had come to show a collection and I met with her. So we are already in talks with her.”

 

Plus Model Agency has launched careers for many internationally known models in the past three decades.
