PULSE model Francine James is featured in next month’s issue of German Vogue. A relative newcomer to the international circuit, James, 17, moved into the big league this year, according to the Jamaica Observer:
The 5-ft 9 1/2 inch James took her appearance in the monthly glossy in stride. “I have a long way to go. I’m not even halfway towards reaching my goal as yet,” she told the Sunday Observer. “The Vogue shoot was very exciting. I am always calm where my jobs are concerned, whether big or not. I am mainly interested to see what the shoot would bring out in me,” she continued. The shoot was conducted by renowned photographers Luigi and Lango while styling was done by Patti Wilson.
A graduate of Camperdown High School, James is from Manley Meadows in Kingston.
Pulse Modelling Agency’s outgoing CEO and chairman Kingsley Cooper said her inclusion in German Vogue was a “massive” feat. “As far as editorials go, this is massive, especially for one just starting in the business. Only a Vogue cover is bigger. Vogue is every model’s dream and Francine’s success with this assignment, especially with the images as stunning as they are, means that bigger doors will open for her,” Cooper told the Observer.
Jeneil Williams, Lois Samuels and Sedene Blake, Oraine Barrett, Sunna Gottshalk, Lincoln Wynter, Jaunel McKenzie, Nadine Willis and Rochelle Watson have been featured in Vogue.
The winner of Pulse’s Caribbean Model Search in 2013, James was the face of the last Search For The Million Dollar Girl TV show, which aired on TVJ last summer. [. . .]
