Check out these eight Singaporeans who made it big.


6. Nadia Rahmat

Rahmat’s modelling career took to the skies in 2015. She was selected out of 50,000 people in an Instagram #CastMeMarc contest to be the face of the now-defunct Marc by Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 campaign. The Female Collective member then went on to walk for Gin Lee in 2017’s Singapore Fashion Week. She still models, but is also working as an events manager for Kilo Lounge, Camp Kilo and Kilo Kitchen.

7. Diya Prabhakar

This New Paper New Face 2014 winner was discovered by Prasad Bidapa, an Indian fashion choreographer, while the then 15-year-old was on a family holiday in India. Since then, she modelled for Ashley Isham, Oscar De La Renta and Desigual at the Audi Fashion Festival 2014, and for Thomas Wee, Al & Alicia and Topshop during the Digital Fashion Week 2013. She has also appeared in several magazines, such as local title Her World and international name, Vogue Arabia.
