Since, Smalls has walked for lead designers like Oscar de la Renta, Sophie Theallet, Brian Reyes, Catherine Malandrino, Jean Paul Gaultier, Stella McCartney, Prada, Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang among others, as well as fellow model, Naomi Campbell's charity runway benefiting Fashion for Relief.

Apart from having her major closing moments on the Spring 2011 Jean Paul Gaultier and Dior runway, opening moment at Yves Saint Laurent and cover of the Fall 2010 issue of i-D; Joan was one of the few models to earn a shout out from Kanye West in his song, Christian Dior Denim Flow, along with Kate Moss, Coco Rocha, Alessandra Ambrosio and Anja Rubik. A devoted daughter as she has always been, Joan Small gladly spent her first hard earned model dollars buying a car for her father.
