In the 1500s; fashion designers used little dolls to showcase their clothes and collection to customers and potential clients, the advent of models started in 1853. Since then modeling has not only become a hobby but a lucrative business for some. All around the world models are used to showcase collections during fashion shows, models are also used for look book shoots and fashion campaigns. Spice TV throws it’s spotlight today on a model who has not only walked for big fashion brands but also been involved in a lot of campaigns. She was first signed to few models, afterwards, Boss models and IMG models. This is a lot of achievement for a young lad who just made her debut into the modeling industry.
