The modeling world is rife with various norms and a long-established status quo. Despite it all, international model Alison Bowles defied all odds and redefined industry standards in the global modeling landscape.
Alison Bowles succeeded in a field where everybody was told that they should be at least five feet and eight inches tall to be accepted. She is 5’3”, but fearlessly, she paved the way for petite models to enter the stage. Her beauty, character, and personality made her a success, and today, Alison has traveled to over 25 countries as a model and travel blogger. She explores a new location every week. “I practically live out of a suitcase,” said the model.
To share her travel stories and tips for aspiring models, Alison Bowles created her brand Wander in Heels. The platform amplifies her narratives from all over the world across the digital space. Alison feels satisfaction in seeing a new city or destination, and she wants to share every bit of it with her audiences. Her ultimate vision for Wander in Heels is to have it all laid out for people like her to be motivated in trying and pursuing their passion, regardless of what the rest of the industry says.
Wander in Heels has provided Alison with many amazing opportunities to work with global tourism boards and hotels worldwide who trust that she would be perfect in representing them and telling their story to a vast audience.
As influencers were flocking on Instagram a few years back to build a brand and make a living on the platform, Alison Bowles persevered in following the same route. Her audience reach is continually growing exponentially. Today, she has earned over 138,000 followers on Instagram. Alison has also created a unique photo editing preset pack so that other aspiring social media personalities and photography enthusiasts can boost the quality of their pictures with ease.
Additionally, Alison Bowles is a recognized Maxim model and has signed with MMG New York, a nationally and internationally recognized model and talent management company providing unique advantages and opportunities to succeed. “I am breaking boundaries in my industry. I am a petite model going for big goals,” said Alison, and indeed she is.
Also, Alison Bowles had to go through another tough problem at 22. She was diagnosed with skin cancer, and the disease almost shattered her. To help people going through the same difficulties and medical conditions, Alison founded her non-profit organization after being treated with skin surgery. Besides building a legacy, the petite model is leaving lasting and life-changing impacts on those who have benefited from her organization’s efforts.
On top of her flourishing modeling career, Alison Bowles has pursued multiple business endeavors. She is the genius entrepreneur behind the Lacy Coe, an online boutique; and she is partnered with Slay Miami, the country’s first CBD sports recovery center. Alison has proven that no matter where her passion may be, she makes sure that she’s on top of her game. She does things differently, but Alison also performs with nothing but the best results in mind.
Asked what she wants upcoming models and entrepreneurs to know, Alison Bowles said, “There is always a way, even when it seems impossible.” The game-changing model emphasizes that dreamers should always have the confidence to chase their dreams and put God at the center of their plans.
