You Need To Know Fashion Supermodel-Oraine Barrett.

Oraine Barrett has been featured in some memorable editorials that have been turning points in his career.

He was photographed as a bondage warrior for Vogue Hommes Japan by Steven Klein and his Interview editorial alongside Daria Werbowy caused quite the controversy. Oraine has been the face of Phat Farm and Ralph Lauren. He is best known for his memorable scar.

After escaping a brutal attack which left him seriously disfigured, Oraine Barrett has overcome hurdles and broken barriers to follow in the footsteps of iconic model Tyson Beckford, being the second Jamaican model to star in a high-profile campaign for timeless American brand Polo by Ralph Lauren. Barrett has also been featured in campaigns by Abercrombie & Fitch, John Bartlett, Phat Farm, Liz Claiborne, and Pepe Jeans, and has done editorials for Sports and Style MKay Daneagazine and Japanese Vogue.

"When most people think of fashion capitals, they think Paris, Milan, or New York City - not the Caribbean," states Robert Clarke, CEO of Irie Jam Media Group, New York's leading outlet for everything Caribbean, producers of Caribbean Fashion Rocks! "The Caribbean region has produced some of the world's greatest supermodels - Jaunel, Carla, Oraine, Tyson-even Naomi Campbell has Caribbean roots. It is an honor to have Jaunel, Carla, and Oraine walk the Fashion Rocks runway. And an honor to recognize Kingsley Cooper and Pulse, they represent the best of the best in the Caribbean fashion industry, and demonstrate how influential our industry is globally."
