Fashion world loses Model Mama Cax at age 30
The fashion world and woman-kind lost a beauty this week as 30 year old model Cacsmy Brutus gained her wings following numerous years of health challenges. You may be familiar with “Mama Cax” from my article via our The Runway Authority coverage of Chromat from New York Fashion Week.
The Haitian-American model also appeared in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty runway show in September. In hearing of the news Rihanna took to twitter to offer her condolences, “A queen. A force. A powerhouse beauty that brought her strength to the @savagexfenty stage this year inspiring so many across the globe. Rest In Power sis.”
Despite her early diagnosis at age 14 of bone and lung cancer, a failed hip replacement surgery which subsequently led to her right leg needing to be amputated Cax was a pillar for Inclusive advocacy within the fashion industry. The outspoken beauty signed with Jag Models and landed a beauty campaign with Wet ‘n’ Wild in 2017 then went on to work with Olay and Becca Cosmetics. It is only fitting to honor her stylish, intentional living with a quote from Yves Saint Laurent, “Fashions fade, Style is eternal.” We will forever remember the unique style she brought to the fashion world we love so much. Rest In Paradise Mama Cax.
