The Discovery...Lameka Fox

January 10, 2016
dis·cov·er·y
dəˈskəv(ə)rē/
noun
  1. 1.
    the action or process of discovering or being discovered.


A year ago I featured Lameka Fox here as my February muse of the month.  When I feature muses here on the blog and now also on the new boy meets girl blog it is because these women inspire me and I want you to learn about them too. Some of the women I feature you may know and others you might not. 


When I featured Lameka here it was two months before I casted her in the Boy Meets Girl core look book photographed by my dear friend and incredible photographer Sophie Elgort. 


Lameka and I were in contact for several years prior to casting her and I always thought her look would be perfect for Boy Meets Girl and that she would be a big model one day. Last May I felt it would be the right time to bring her into a casting. I remember telling Sophie about Lameka and when Lameka walked into the casting room Sophie and I both looked at each other and said "this is it!" Lameka tried on samples (photos below from the casting) of mine that had come in in the wrong color. When someone makes salmon sweatpants look chic, effortless and cool you know you have found the next supermodel!



For me the discovery of a fresh face or a new artist is what I truly love about the many things I do. A lot of people joke with me that I was probably a model scout or talent scout in my former life. 

Since my feature of Lameka and casting her in the Boy Meets Girl shoot, Lameka was discovered on Instagram by IMG models covered here on Vogue.com and has been featured in countless magazines such as Elle, Teen Vogue and T Magazine and has graced the runway for high end brands such as Burberry and Valentino. I spoke to Lameka about featuring her here in my Midnight Inspirations section and showing you what her 2015 looked like via the eyes of her instagram account. Below are some of my favorite moments captured. I am so proud of Lameka. She has taken her new found modeling career with grace and she certainly is the next top model to watch. Cheers to you Lameka. Wishing you an incredible 2016. 

That awkward moment when you're up at 4 am on new years shopping for sweaters on @hm and you see your face.... It really blows my mind how much my life changed in 2015. A year ago I could have never imagined that any of the things I've done would be a possibility. I remember going to Stockholm only a few weeks ago for the very first time to shoot this and it doesn't feel like a reality until you actually see the work. This past year I've travelled so many places, met so many amazing people, worked with some of the greatest people in the fashion industry. And what makes it all even more surreal is that it hasn't even been a full year since I signed with IMG and they found me on here on Instagram of all places! This past year has been a major blessing, God has truly let my dreams become a reality. While I look forward to the new year it most definitely is going to have a hard time topping 2015, here's to a year filled with more success, love, and happiness. I'm honestly in tears writing this caption.. but thank you all for supporting me and believing in me even when I didn't believe in myself. From the bottom of my heart I love you all so much thank you for being my #foxys and may the family only continue to grow this year! ❤️ xx, L p.s. I wish I could tag everyone but here are a few people I have to especially thank, doesn't mean your support has gone unnoticed!!!
