“Long, lean, and innately graceful, the Canadian-Somalian model has the ability to make even the most intricate couture pieces seem effortless. Warsame is back in the spotlight this month with a new cover of Vogue Italia proving her continued relevance on and off the catwalk.”– Style.com

Yasmin Warsame was born in Mogadishu, Somalia in 1976. She is a Muslim. When she was fifteen years old, she moved from Somalia to Toronto, Ontario, Canada with her family. Yasmin was discovered in 1997 by professional modelling agency owners/scouts from SHOK Models in Toronto. Although Warsame worked as a fashion model in Canada for almost two years, her look was considered too “haute couture” for the local scene, making work scarce. So, in the summer of 2002, she headed for Paris. Her breakthrough came later that year with a feature for the Italian Vogue, photographed by Steven Meisel.
