Vision Models' Elijah Chhum tells me that six Vision models walked in New York Fashion Week shows last year. That includes: Megan McNierney (Alice + Olivia, Christian Cota, Rachel Roy), Will Defiel (Calvin Klein), Blake Kuchta (Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis), Nique Jenkins (Victor Glemaud, Copperwheat), Mike Elmquist (DKNY, Partik Ervell, Bess), Diane Johnson (Chris Benz, Threeasfour, Chadwick Bell). I'm also including some shots of T.J., who was once represented by Vision "back in the day." Here are the runway shots I was able to compile:
The most prolific Vision female model at the moment. She's also appeared between the pages of Elle Italy. I see big things for this one.
The former face of Calvin Klein still walks the runway for Calvin Klein menswear, along with fellow Vision model Vision Blake Kuchta. Vision owner Teqen-Aida Zea was in attendance at the show and says via facebook, "Though Will's campaign is now history - there is still major buzz around him - we are looking forward to his entering the arena a bit more full force."
A new face at Vision - and on the runways of New York.
This was Diane's first Fashion Week. I personally worked with her a couple of years back on a test shoot; it's amazing to see her have come so far!
I love Mike's edgy, skinny Brit look. He's another one to watch.
Another new face to watch for.
Vision owner Teqen Aida-Zea had this to say about T.J.: "T.J. returned to the New York runways with total swag. It is good to see him back, more mature, and better than ever. The look is always all American prep - but this time their was a cinematic edginess mixed into the look lineup. Regardless - it was amazing to see T.J. be a part of the final curtain (of Tommy Hilfiger) at Bryant Park."
I'm looking forward to getting the full report from Teqen as soon as he comes back from New York. Stay tuned!
