But it seems the reality TV star’s rise to fame hasn’t gone down too well with some members of the industry.
In an open letter to website theblot.com, fellow American model Arisce Wanzer has slammed Jenner and her burgeoning fashion career.
In the letter, the full transcript of which is available here, Wanzer describes the difficulties faced by up and coming models in the industry, all of which appear to have been bypassed by Jenner.
"Dear Kendall, Take a moment and remove yourself from your current situation, if you can, to a life that isn’t riddled with excess and only hearing the word “yes” to your wants and requests.
"Now, imagine you’re from a small town and/or Third-World country where your only way to get out of your current social class, achieve your dreams, get a green card or just gain better work conditions is to become a high-fashion model."
"This girl didn’t do and doesn’t owe half of what you did (remember, you’re NOT “KJ” in this scenario) to get here today, that much is certain. Her mommy surely called a top agency, got her in the door and the design houses just chose to milk her fame like the cash cow that it is."
