Hi there! My name is Zoe Allamby and I am a 23 year-old Model based in Miami.
I left my beloved island of Barbados in 2007 to further my education and pursue a career in the fashion industry. While enrolled at the Miami International University of Art and Design, pursuing my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fashion Merchandising,I juggled modeling, being a full-time student and a part-time sales associate. Yes, I was always tired.
Along the way there was something I learnt about hard work- It paid off. I was blessed with amazing some amazing modeling opportunities and able to book shows for Rachel Roy, Diane Von Furstenberg, Nanette Lepore, Missoni, Alberta Ferreti and Saks Fifth Avenue.
Everything I had learnt from make up artists or even my own personal research, I wished to share with young women… and that’s where CaribBeauty came into play. CaribBeauty is my beauty and fashion channel on Youtube that I use to connect with girls around the world. Whether it was after class or a show, I found unpretentious joy in coming home and filming make up tutorials (even though I made so many mistakes!). To know that I inspired at least one girl, was the best feeling.
I’ve graduated, interned worked in corporate and now it’s back to full-time modeling.
My mission is to teach and encourage young women to look and feel their best by methods of beauty and style, whilst encompassing the essence of my Barbadian culture.
Carib Chic is my new hub to document my journey, hope you enjoy the ride.
