Modeling under the name Carmina Suzanne, I'm an International Curve Model, artistic director, author and diversity advocate. After modeling primarily in London, I'm now back in my hometown of Buffalo NY, working in NYC, Paris, LA, Miami, London and locally. I Event Managed the 2011 show Curves in Couture for Models of Diversity in London; I write for Volup2 and Alizé La Vie Magazines, and worked for Emberlynn Designs & E’lan NYC as a Fit Model and Muse Model. I appeared on the catwalk at Pulp’Fashion Week Paris, NYFW 2015 for Dede Allure in Runway The Real Way, Uptown Fashion Week, LS1426 FW Miami and British Bridal Exhibition Harrogate. There are 5 Magazine covers and over 3 dozen spreads to my credits in many countries, as publication and print work is a real passion of mine.


I've been privileged to model for Macy’s, Burberry (as Serena Williams’ fit model), Dede Allure, EmberLynn Designs, Serita Bell, 710 FashionsZizzi, Curvy Kate, Deux PoucesOnOz, Le Chat DéfileAux Plaisirs des Rondes, Kibonen NY, Edward DillardFranci JewelryMade By AnatomySimply Natural, Emerson Street CollegiateBonny Bridal, Bill Baber, Limb, Don't Do Dresses, and Beauty BraPublication credits include Queen Size (2 covers), Rack Plus (cover), Lioness (cover), BeUtiful (cover), PLUS Model, CURVYSKORCHBillie Blunt PlusiDare, Ronde et GlamourPOSESolisAlizé La VieTrade SecretsCurvy ConnectI-FashionCurves And The CitySurreal BeautyBuffalo RisingGirlTalkHQModel CallStyle-ologyDivaJust As Beautiful, and Psychologies magazines as well as many blogs, e-zines and newspapers around the world, including Italy's Corriere della Sera.

A passionate diversity advocate, I'm an experienced lecturer, public speaker, author and model mentor, pushing for models of all shapes, sizes, ages, heights, colors and ability levels to be treated fairly in fashion. I'm also the Founder and CEO of MODAL Productions, a fashion- and music-mentoring firm; in London, I was able to work with members of the British Parliament on a nation-wide diversity project. Now I’ve brought my marketing/ PR, model scouting and event management experience from London to Buffalo, combining European know-how with Queen City friendliness.
