Irene Ojo-Felix is a Brooklyn-based, Nigerian-American stylist, casting director, and the current associate editor at Models.com. She's on a mission to use her platform to discover and unleash the stories that are important to her.
As a child, Irene recalls not seeing many faces she could relate to in print media. Her first connection to fashion was watching Naomi Campbell early one Saturday morning while looking for cartoons, after getting a glimpse of Mrs.Campbell she immediately thought "Oh, I want this!". Since then, Irene has influenced the industry by getting more people of color to be seen as beautiful.
