TME with Saucy Santana and Coi Leray
The “superbowl of fashion shows” that The Model Experience (TME) has become famous for in Los Angeles rocked a new coast last weekend for NYFW. At TME’s inaugural NYFW show over 800 models hit the runway along with performances from Billboard-charting raptress Coi Leray and Saucy Santana (fresh off his MTV Video Music Awards performance). Music royalty Grandmaster Flash made an appearance and attendees enjoyed a DJ set from model and artist Shaun Ross.
For over a decade TME has been giving up-and-coming models the chance to walk the runway. Their glowing community has now become a bi-coastal brand after manifesting the New York show that’s been in the works for many seasons. As Ashley Covarrubias has shared about her organization, “we truly provide the model experience that aspiring talents need, and with accolades like placements in Vogue with designers who’ve gone on to work with stars like Cardi B, our reputation is golden.” The TME event unveiled dozens of designers’ newest collections and is giving an opportunity for those to shine.
The model experience is here to stay in New York I feel. This will give so many up and coming designers a chance to showcase their talent where there wasn’t an opportunity. We hope to see The Model Experience in February and more designers given a chance to display their talents. The audience showed why as well, they were cheering on every single designer that showed, hyping up each model that hit the runway and giving a positive experience to the show as well. This is something that you may not see at any other show.
