Elite Chicago Introduces the New Generation

Elite model Mary

Elite Model Management is one of the biggest names in the modeling industry and they had a reason to celebrate recently! After Elite’s annual ‘model booth camp,’ the agency’s new faces were ready to hit the runway. And, they had beautiful wooden décor to do exactly that at Manor’s exclusive VIP lounge Stay. The newly-signed models walked a fashion show in front of clients including Factio Magazine/Runway To Retail (yours truly), Seventeen Magazine, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and more. Special guests included Mckey Sullivan (ANTM 2008 Winner) and Nichole Robinson, who are both part of the Elite family.

The dresses showed were by none other than Chicago designer Elise Bergman. The beautifully crafted clothing was executed in a natural light palette with a-symmetric hemlines and the dropped waistlines we love in spring fashion. Jewelry worn was designed by Asia.

Goodie bags were filled up with beauty essentials and gift cards and the after party at Manor was filled with networking. Congratulations girls!
