The model was scouted while washing dishes at Chipotle. Already, she's walked for Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs.
Truly, miracles do happen. One woman who knows this to be true is Remington Williams of Austin, Texas. Within a twelve day span, her life turned completely upside down — but in a very positive way.
While washing dishes at a Chipotle in Austin, Williams was spotted by a modeling scout. Immediately, she was offered a life-changing opportunity. Just days later, Williams was on a plane headed for New York City, where she later signed with DNA Models.
Refinery 29 reports that the modeling agency has launched the careers of countless women, including Linda Evangelista and Natalia Vodianova. Needless to say, it was an exciting development for the former dishwasher.
After arriving in New York, Williams was booked just in time to walk for a Calvin Klein Show at New York Fashion Week. That’s an impressive achievement by any model’s standards. What made the show even more amazing was the fact that this was Williams’ first model gig ever.
During an interview with Vogue, Williams said:
“Raf Simons personally taught me how to walk. He could have picked any model, but he believed in me so much that he took the time to help me so that I could do his show.”
That was the beginning of it all. After walking in the Calvin Klein show, the red-headed model was offered another job walking for Marc Jacobs. Of course, she accepted.
“I was visiting the Met Museum, and then suddenly received a notification I had to fit for the Marc show in one hour at their offices in Soho,” Williams recalled.
She exited the museum and rushed across town, just in time to meet some of the most famous models in the industry. “When I arrived, he was there to greet me. I was so giddy and excited because I felt like I was a part of the creative process from the very beginning,” she said.
The extraordinary turn of events hasn’t completely derailed her previous ambitions. The dishwasher-turned-model continues to study graphic design while preparing for upcoming shows. Her original drawings are being sold on Etsy for $5. As she becomes more famous, however, her prices are sure to increase. So, act fast!
