The recently concluded Paris Fashion Week Men's and Paris Haute Couture was a veritable playground for Saint International models.

Leading the charge was supermodel Tami Williams who, between Sunday and Tuesday of this week, graced the runway of six different labels eight times. There were two looks in the Azzaro Haute Couture Fall 2018 show on Sunday with another two looks for Peter Dundas D5 Resort 2019 collection. She also made single appearances for Schiaparelli (a pretty big deal) and Redemption in their Couture Fall/Winter 2018 presentations on Monday. Williams then presented looks for industry giants Giorgio Armani Privé and Chanel (for the 18th time!) on Tuesday. July, too, marked another significant accomplishment for Williams. Styled by Sara Fernandez, Williams modelled luxe jewellery in a multi-page editorial in Vogue España.

Meanwhile, country girl-cum-international runway star Naki Depass continued turning heads with her industry-acclaimed walk. On Sunday Depass appeared in the Resort 2019 runway show for French luxury brand Hermès. On Tuesday, the Couture Fall/Winter 2018 presentation for Giorgio Armani Privé. And you can see her stunning features against the backdrop of Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve in the July 2018 issue of ELLE Italia.

Not to be outdone was Romaine Dixon, who made his international runway début for Valentino and completed a fabulous tour in Paris walking for Christian Dada, Balmain and Dior. Dixon made history by becoming the first Jamaican male model to walk for Dior and being named by French Vogue as “one of 10 models to watch”.

Fellow Saint, Jermaine Downer, opened the Sean Suen Spring/Summer 2019 show, whilst Jonny Brown seemed to be walking in every show. Kudos!

Sharing, too, in the spotlight spoils was Balenciaga babe Elecia Gordon. On July 2, Gordon put her runway skills on display for the Nihilo Couture Fall/Winter 2018 collection. This, following a feature in the Lemaire Spring/Summer 2019 menswear look book.

It's certainly shaping up to be the summer of Saint!
