Fashion Week doesn't technically start until tomorrow but it is already off to an insanely good start for us! Stefanie Stein, one of the most respected casting directors in the fashion industry, just released her list of the "Next Rising Star Models" for this season, for The Impression. Out of all of the aspiring models in New York for NYFW, Stein picked the top 33, and our model Ashland Wendlandt is included in the list! If anyone can pick out the potential supermodels out of all of the new faces this season, it is Stefanie Stein, and the fact that she named Ashland in this small group is absolutely amazing. This is such a huge feat for Ashland, and we can't wait to see what Fashion Week has in store for her.
Walking two runways for Dior has definitely put Ashland on an incredible path to success, and we love seeing the industry recognize the potential in Ashland that we saw when we scouted her. She is working with our New York partner, Fusion Model Management, and we know that they are going to make an incredible team! This is going to be a great NYFW, and we can't wait to keep you updated on all of the excitement.
