Somali-Canadian supermodel Yasmin Warsame received her big break courtesy of a Vogue Italia editorial feature photographed by Steven Meisel. She has appeared in countless editorial features in the international editions of Vogue, and most recently, Peter Lindberg captured her in the South of France for L'Oreal Paris.
Perhaps best known for her regal features, energetic personality, Yasmin has walked in the international runway collections for Christian Dior, Jean Paul Gaultier, Lanvin, Tom Ford, and Oscar de la Renta, and she appeared in advertising campaigns Valentino Haute Couture, Dolce & Gabbana, Escada, Hermès, Shiseido, Chanel, Gap, and H&M. She also served as a judge on the reality-competition series, Canada's Next Top Model.
Off-duty, Yasmin is an enthusiastic reader (its her favorite pastime, especially during hours of hair and makeup). She also enjoys writing, kick-boxing, and spending time with her family. Yasmin is also an ambassador for The African Future, and an active volunteer at the Somali Youth Coalition in Toronto.
