Due to the embargo and lack of advertisement Cuban fashion hasn’t developed much from the 50s, and neither have its runways: they’re still considered mostly county fairs or hotel halls shows where wealthy people vaguely look at while they sip their mojito. Here top models don’t fly all overthe world for a fashion show: they have to get there by their own means, do their own make up and bring their own heels.

All this knowing that no foreign agency will ever offer them a contract,not because they’re not good enough, but just because of their nationality.

Even though they are professional top models they get paid around 5 CUC (4 DOLLARS) per show.The work aims to depict and emphasize the double standard of the industry outside and inside the island, and show, using one of the most paid jobs as a means, how underpaid people are on the island and how foreign politics keep blocking Cuban socio-economic development, even nowadays.
