« Back to 2014 Annual Gala

2014 Model of the Year

UCOF is excited to introduce you to Devyn, our International Fashion Ambassador who will represent the 2013 Annual Gala. This Bronx born, native New Yorker is a fashion model of Barbadian and Jamaican ancestry. With the encouragement of her parents since she was very young, Devyn studied dance and art, while also pursuing a passion in photography. During high school, she was scouted by an agency in New York and learned to balance her classes with the demands of working as a model. Since graduating, Devyn further developed her interest in photography, hosted a professional photography exhibit, and created a short film which was recognized at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Devyn admires how United Colors of Fashion empowers youth through fashion. “To me fashion is more than to set trends or popular styles. In my eyes fashion defines individuality and self-confidence. Whether we believe it or not, fashion has a huge impact on our daily lives. UCOF does exactly that, taking that individuality and self-confidence and mixing in the genius and creativity that comes with fashion to changing young people’s lives,” says the ambassador.

Recently, Devyn was awarded the title of being the first official winner of “The Face” reality TV modeling competition. UCOF is proud to welcome Devyn to our team.

Devin explains, “It is an unexpected honor being selected as UCOF’s newest fashion ambassador. In the past, I have shown my support for UCOF by walking in the annual charity fashion show… To now be a part of the entire UCOF movement makes my support grow ever more. I have seen the effect of their cause and the drive behind their vision. It feels amazing to be a part of something so beautiful.”
