Joan Smalls is one of the world's leading international supermodels and social justice activists. She grew up in Hatillo, Puerto Rico and while she holds a degree in psychology from the Interamerican University, Smalls knew that modeling was her passion and chosen career. Her persistence and determination eventually paid off when she was signed by a New York City agency and then went on to walk in a number of top designer shows and become the face of some of the most coveted brand campaigns.
As an Afro-Latina woman, Smalls has not only made strides in her industry as a model but she has used her voice and her platform to empower and educate others. In 2020, following the actions taken against the Black community, Smalls decided to donate 50 percent of her earnings for the remainder of 2020 to Black Lives Matter organizations. The supermodel took it a step further by founding her own resource site, DonateMyWage.org, which now highlights 20 organizations within the BLM movement and helps those interested to donate directly to causes they are passionate about. Smalls firmly believes that in order to see true change in any aspect of life, we must all work together and be that necessary change.

Alva Claire grew up in Herne Hill South East London, England, near Brixton, a part of London that is rich in Caribbean culture and history.
Her Jamaican father and Swedish-American mother both worked in the arts, so she was in an environment that encouraged a strong sense of self and emotional connection through art.
Alva studied Art and Design at the London College of Fashion and went on to intern with different stylists and brands. She knew she wanted to work in fashion, somehow, then made the leap to be a model.
She has since moved to Brooklyn, New York and now lives between both cities. She enjoys vintage shopping, journaling, and getting lost in Prospect Park.
"I have been spending more and more time getting to know my area of Brooklyn, and that has been so fun. I feel connected to both London and New York in different ways. I love the synergy between the two!" She offers.
"It's an exciting time in fashion and I can't wait to keep pushing myself and the industry to make important changes!"
