Model Kendal Elder to appear in Vogue Italia!

A local model, Kendal Elder, who has worked the runway in many Cincy Chic fashion shows – such as our recent Bras with Flair on the Square Fashion Show in Oct. – is going to appear in Vogue Italia! You can check out the photos here!

Kendal is a Springboro High School graduate from Waynesville, Ohio. She now works with MTM Cincinnati – a local modeling agency – and has been featured in both Cincinnati Fashion Week finale fashion shows… and now she’s in VOGUE! So huge! What an amazing opportunity for this local lady! Congratulations to Kendal and all that she has accomplished! Cincinnati is cheering you on!

Thanks to my intern Sara Elliott for helping put this blog post together!

Follow up – Local Model at NY Fashion Week

Kendal Elder, modeling at the Imitation of Christ presentation

Last week I told you about Kendal Elder, the model who’s representing the Queen City on the catwalks of New York Fashion Week. Well, this week, I have a fun little follow up about her.

When I blogged about her last week, she was confirmed for the Imitation of Christ presentation, but we didn’t know what else yet. She ended up completely stealing the IoC show! Check out her gorgeous lady in red look in this post and the truly entertaining video of the show below.

I did a little research, and apparently the IoC presentations are famous for their theatrics – click here for a little history on the label and shows.

But I digress… back to the big news! I found that that Kendal also got booked for the Feb. 15 B.Michael America presentation! And if you’re like me — sitting on your couch in your in not-so-fashionable PJs, pouting, and wishing you were at NY Fashion Week — turn that frown upside down because you can still watch Kendal in action! This show will be live streamed on the NYFW Facebook page! Click here to watch it: http://www.facebook.com/MBFashionWeek

Congrats, again Kendal!


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!!!
