St. Louis-based fashion model management firm Mother Model Management has announced that, in collaboration with Next Model Management, Synergy Productions, and Alive Magazine, they will present an extraordinary fashion show and homecoming party, “Tribute”, on Saturday, November 17th in St. Louis, Missouri from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. The event will mark the debut of Wonderland at the MX, a limited-engagement pop-up event space at 618 Washington Avenue, Suite 202.
“Our models have walked the runways of Dior, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton and they are coming home to celebrate their Midwest roots,”says owner Mary Clarke.
The evening will include a gallery of Mother Model discoveries, a vintage fashion show featuring Mother’s most successful models, and homecoming party to celebrate a decade of homespun success in St. Louis by Jeff and Mary Clarke.
Co-Producer Kelly Hummert Dhawan notes: “Jeff and Mary Clarke have, on their own terms, been putting St. Louis on the map in the world of high-fashion for over a decade. They foster their models’ developments in such a compassionate, loving manner – a testament to their commitment to succeed in the fashion business at the highest level, but leading with their hearts. Their models have had a very successful season walking in fashion shows in New York, Milan, and Paris. We are thrilled to create an opportunity for all of that spirit and energy to culminate on a runway back home in St. Louis. This show will celebrate the soul of Mother Model Management: Gorgeous and jaw-dropping high-fashion design and aesthetic, but with sweet, Midwestern attitude.”
Faith Kates and Joel Wilkenfeld from Next Models, one of the largest global modeling agencies, shared that “Next Models have proudly worked with Jeff and Mary for many years and we are delighted to be supporting this amazing event. ‘Tribute’ is set to become a regular fixture on the Midwest fashion calendar to showcase Mother Models amazing achievements”.
