NEW YORK: When Myberson Saint-Pierre started his journey with United Colors of Fashion (UCOF) two years ago, he had no idea that it would turn out to be one of the most enriching experiences of his career. He casually recalls his days starting out in film and photography when Ciano Clerjuste approached him to be a UCOF intern.

“I had recently purchased my first camera to film documentaries and what ever project I had going on at the moment. When Ciano offered me the opportunity to intern I took it, just because I needed the credits for school and I figured it would be a cool experience. At the time I didn’t know much about UCOF or fashion,” he says.

Soon after that fateful meeting, Myberson was introduced into the magical world of fashion and his lens could not help but lap up all the beauty it had to offer.

His first introduction came through South African fashion designer David Tlale whose show gave him the opportunity to let his creativity fly free. While he was photographing models being prepared for the show, he fell in love with the experience.

“After working two shows at New York Fashion Week I still feel the same way as I did the first time. If it weren’t for UCOF, I don’t know what profession I would be after right now. All I know is that I wouldn’t be as happy as I am now as a fashion videographer/photographer. My goal is to someday work for Victoria’s Secret and/or Vogue Magazine,” says Myberson.

On being nominated for Achiever of the Year, he says it would be a great honor, but feels that he still has so much more to do. His work ethic and passion for learning will serve him well in the fashion industry and UCOF looks forward to seeing the strides Myberson will make in the future.

We are proud to have given him the platform to develop his skills and we are confident that he will make a roaring success of every project he is presented with.
