A born and raised Martinican Top Model

Mélodie began her modeling career in 2010 at the age of 18, when she was discovered by Your Angels Models, a local modeling agency in her native Martinique.

Just weeks after signing with Your Angels Models, Mélodie began working with Wilhelmina in New York and Silent models in Paris.

Debuting during the S/S 2011 collections in New York, Mélodie has since walked the runway for top designers including Michael Kors, Bottega Veneta, Lanvin, Miu Miu, and Yves Saint Laurent.

 

After her first runway season, Mélodie was named a top 10 new face by Style.com, Models.com, and COACD.

In July 2011 Mélodie left Wilhelmina for Silent models, which represented her in both New York and Paris. She is now represented by Next Management Agency.

Mélodie has appeared in Vogue Italia, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue Turkey, Interview, Dazed and Confused, and V Magazine. She was photographed by Mario Testino for the F/W 2011 D&G ad campaign.

Before becoming a model, Mélodie dreamed of a career as a designer.

Deeply interested in fashion, in a January 2011 interview with Vogue Italia she named John Galliano, Zac Posen, Tom Ford, and Marc Jacobs as her favorite designers.

Mélodie recently became the Tourism Ambassador of her native island : Martinique, working hand to hand with the Matinique Tourism Authority to promote the destination all around the world.

According to Mélodie, using her digital plateforms to promote Martinique, is something she has already been doing for a long time and it was only natural for her to partner with Martinique's Tourism Institutions in order to support her island's touristic development.
