Lameka Fox was signed to IMG Models agency after only two days of being discovered through an Instagram scouting campaign.
A few months later, she made her debut at Marc Jacobs resort 2016 runway in New York, and now features in our February Collection shoot alongside her fellow IMG girls. Not a bad start for the Maryland native, who has gone from spending her free time training horses to walking for Burberry Prorsum, Moncler Gamme Rouge and Valentino.
