Local Model Featured in New York Fashion Week

The photo that caught my eye - Kendal behind the scenes of Ann Yee's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection and hair by Marcos Diaz

New York Fashion Week is going on right now. While I didn’t get any invites (hint hint anyone?! haha!), I am getting a ton of emails from designers and beauty product companies with photos from their shows. Much to my surprise, as I opened one of those emails yesterday, I saw a familiar face!

A model, Kendal Elder, who has modeled in many Cincy Chic fashion shows – such as our recent Bras with Flair on the Square Fashion Show in Oct. – was featured in an email I got about Ann Yee’s Autumn/Winter 2012 collection and hair by Marcos Diaz. The first photo in the email was of Kendal and I couldn’t believe it! I immediately emailed my contact, Lori Colwell, at her modeling agency – MTM Cincinnati – and she confirmed it was Kendal!

“This is her first NYC Fashion Week,” says Colwell, “after over three years of hard work!”

Colwell said Kendal’s first show was Thursday night, the Gen Art New Garde Show. It was sponsored by Crest Whitestrips and they had the show streaming live on their facebook page. So, everyone at the agency and all of Kendal’s friends/family got to watch it! Click here to see it for yourself!

Kendal is still going to castings, Colwell says, and has other shows booked. “The only one I know is a presentation for Imitation of Christ,” Colwell adds.

Kendal is a Springboro High School graduate from Waynesville, Ohio, and she’s been featured in both Cincinnati Fashion Week finale fashion shows. And I’m so proud that she made it to THE fashion week this year! CONGRATS Kendal!!!
