ALEX: Signed, Sealed, Delivered...I'm Yours

Here at GADAL Model Management we enjoy making model dreams come through; 

the latest model to wear the "I'm Signed!" Grin on his face is our very own Alex Blair.

Barely in his 20's himself, Alex (probably due to that amazing smile) was given the nod by the great team at: TWENTY MANAGEMENT.

Scouted by our friend Akin in London; who put him on to us here in Barbados, Alex is set to take Cape Town by storm! 

With a population of approximately 3.74 million, Cape Town is a cosmopolitan city spread below the impressive 3,000ft high Table Mountain and listed as number one in the New York Times list: '52 Places to Go in 2014'!

isiXhosa is one of eleven official languages of South Africa and "Hamba kahle" means "Go well!"

From all of here at GADAL Model Management; Congratulations Alex - Hamba kahle!

Don't be alarmed our 'new face' Jabarry didn't lose his temper or punch anyone out; 

on the contrary Jabarry and freelance model Erika were all smiles as they headed up to the gorgeous roof-deck (complete with pool) of the Ocean 2 Hotel.

The property which overlooks the Barbados south coast and a stretch of unbelievably blue sea was a fitting start for what the aspiring model described as his first "real photoshoot".

The smiles soon changed however; as the pair served-up Bonnie & Clyde faces under the direction of the artistic team. If we didn't know better; we'd think the real gangster couple had come for a vacation!

The 'fierce faces' didn't outshine the beauty of the clothing and accessories provided by Attitude Boutique and Republic 21 however; throw in the magic touch of Danielle Archer of Colour Coded Makeup and gangster never looked so good!  

With resident UK photographer Matthew John on the lens and a clear blue tropical sky; here is just a sneak peek of the images created, not a bad start for the 6' 3" aspiring model. 
Whats happening on your roof?

The TRI COLLECTION is a clothing brand and the brain-child of Katrina Brathwaite a student of the London College of Fashion. The college's mission is, "fashion the future". and the 26 year old is certainly doing that.

The name "TRI" is three-fold in origin: 

  1. (1) "TRI" is the shortened version of her name as first bestowed by her friend Damien Reveira at Harrison Collegemost people called her "Kat" for short and he wanted to stand-out from the rest of the pack so called her "Tri"; 
  2. (2) "TRI" (pronounced "tree") is how the fashion designer sees herself; as a symbol of strength with roots that run deep- inspiring others while remaining grounded no matter what life throws her way. 
  3. (3) "TRI" is how bajans (what Barbadians call themselves) pronounce the number three- three biblically is seen as the number of completion, perfection and balance.
Katrina describes herself as, "a proud bajan woman" and draws her inspiration from admiration of the female form; TRI COLLECTION is for confident women only and the designer wants every woman to celebrate her inner Goddess with every stride.


All images were shot on location in BARBADOS.

NAKEEM's time is NOW!

One can be forgiven for seeing a jockey as just, a person who rides horses professionally; after all the horse is the real star...

Until you meet one with skin so perfect that it looks painted; it couldn't really be that flawless could it? 
Teeth and a smile so bright it makes you want to go get laser whitening too; till you discover he's never had it done and only seen a dentist twice in his 21 years of life! Shoulders, that match more perfectly with a suit than a tie does and a gaze more focused than your cat.

One could be forgiven for thinking you'd have to be speaking about a model, not a jockey! That is until you see THIS  face...
The handsome lad has already caught the eyes of the production team at the ever increasingly popular Wardrobe TV Show (watch the episode here) and whether its a suit from Hugo Boss or cruising attire from Cave Shepherd, Nakeem makes it look like a million bucks.
 His calm, composed but steely confidence is tempered by a humility that is by far his most endearing trait. Refreshing in a world where beauty and big egos seem to go hand in hand.

Unafraid of the storms life can bring; Nakeem's grounded demeanor may be attributed to his having to surmount his own share of challenges having lost two siblings (brothers) in tragic circumstances; as a jockey; model and person; getting-up dusting-off and riding again is much more than an empty platitude, its his personal story.

Whatever he does he gives it his all and takes the plunge. 

As for the horse; no one remembers who he is; its the rider that's the star...Jockey or Model all bets are on Nakeem

Cool, charming, confident,  remember the face and reset your watches, he's already ahead of the pack...Nakeem's time is now!

All images shot by British photographer Matt Carr on location in Barbados.

REMI! The Legend Continues...

Ever so often we need to remind you what we do...making STARS is what we do. It wouldn't be fair however to let your appetite go unsatisfied- here's the PROOF in the PUDDING.

REMI continues to RISE and while others require the arsenal of an iPhone and a pose; Remi is no poser, he out there making bread!

Might as well change his address to "Sky" because he always on a plane- to somewhere- from somewhere...and it all started in BARBADOS, because in Barbados at GADAL, STARS are what we make!

God's blessings on REMI...

Just a glimpse of what Remi has been up to...
