You could follow in the footsteps of FWNOLA models, Taylor Hamric and Victoria Henley. Taylor was discovered at FWNOLA and now lives in New York where she is signed with Wilhelmina! Victoria was on America’s Next Top Model Cycle 19, where she was in the Top 5. Inspired by Fashion Week New York and Louisiana’s richly diverse culture, Fashion Week New Orleans’ goal is to showcase the talents and collections of established and emerging fashion designers, brand houses, boutiques and retailers in a series of runway shows, fashion events & exhibitions. New Orleans and the Gulf Coast are recognized globally for the authentic cuisine, musical talent, budding film and celebrity presence & distinctive culture. It is only fitting that the unique talents of fashion designers, boutique owners, make-up artists, hair stylists, models, and fashion enthusiasts are included in the region’s repertoire of artistic talent.
