Model Alliance Conference shot in NYC by Angela Cappetta
Dozens of top models in a NYC loft and its not even Fashion Week? That’s what happens when models Sarah Ziff, Chairman, works with with Aine Rose Campbell , Advisory Board Member.
Well, their goal is to talk about reality, of course.
Employment. Longevity. Action.
This panel, uniquely assembled, discussed life after the runway. The audience: new and retiring talent. This Model Alliance Conference was shot on location in NYC by Angela Cappetta.
Of course, said panel is made up mostly of models. These are not just any models. These women are the faces of Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Gap.
Magazine covers, billboards, features in the well. Models who are used to being high income earners.
Moreover, these businesswomen all have truly distinguished careers. Plot twist! They’re semi retried. Above all, they’re all under 40. So what’s next for these ambitious women? That’s exactly the point.
So what does the executive director say about this?
Sarah says: “[Recently], the Model Alliance hosted “Careers Beyond the Runway.” This panel discussion is for models interested in developing new careers within and outside of the fashion industry.
The panel featured Monica Watkins, founder of Art in Motion, Tara Stiles, best-selling author and founder and CEO of Strala Yoga, Paula Viola, counsel at IMG Models Worldwide, Lisa Davies, labor and delivery nurse at Lenox Hill Hospital, in addition to Lauren Gordon, career counsel at Career Transition For Dancers.
Similarly, the panelists spoke about their modeling experiences and how they transitioned to their new careers. We are grateful to them for their valuable insights.
Furthermore, we thank MA advisory board member Aine Campbell for organizing this panel. And special thanks to Angela Cappetta LLC for photographing the event.”
