Licett Morillo

Morillo had the honor of closing a Prada fashion show

Licett Morillo is a young Dominican woman from a humble family who went from working in a plastics factory to becoming one of the best international models. In 2018 Nileny Dippton, director of the Nefer Agency, met Licett while walking on the street and asked her for a few photos.

The images ended up changing Morillo‘s life after Dippton introduced her to the fascinating world of fashion. When Dippton offered her a job in her modeling agency, the Dominican model rose to prominence in just a few months. Morillo traveled to Milan and did a casting for Prada.

Licett Morillo, like other Latina models, is completely breaking stereotypes and ushering in a new era in the world of fashion.
