Corona is a rapidly rising model from Mexico who seems to have unlimited potential. She is absolutely stunning and she has such beautiful and unforgettable looks.  Although she’s relatively young and new to modeling, it’s like she instinctively knows what to do.  She slays.

Joycelyn has made big moves on the runway so early in her career. She walked for in Chromat’s FW15 runway show. Jocelyn has walked in New York Fashion Week – FW17 for Christian Siriano.  Jocelyn has also walked for Torrid in their first runway show at New York Fashion Week, SS-2018.

A top international model from Sweden, Sabina is steady on the rise. This year she walked for Christian Siriano in the New York Fashion Week show for SS2018.  Sabina is a hard working, experienced model and all that hard work and experience is paying off. Although she started as a straight-size model as a child, Karlsson has transitioned well into the plus model ranks.  If the last two years are any indication, Sabina’s career will continue to expand as more people become aware and appreciate her talents.

Sabina has appeared for Chromat, H&M, Rebdolls, Addition Elle, Milk Makeup, Levis, Glamour Magazine(covered), and Essence Magazine, among others.

Torrid NYFW Runway Show

Retail brand Torrid came to town to show that their collections and models could deliver a message. The message received was that plus size models and those that design for them deliver the goods. Those runway walks were truly mesmerizing. Torrid provides clothing for women size 10-30 US. These are stylish garments and they are made to fit.

Torrid dual-purposed this event by requiring the top ten finalists in its Model Competition to walk the runway. Imagine, your first big time gig is NYFW. They handled it like pros! The next phase of the model competition will reduce the number to four participants. Torrid will announce who the four semi-finalists are in late October, 2017.
