Wilhelmina Models names seven Bermudians as potential signees
Seven Bermuda models could soon sign contracts with a top US agency.
Representatives from Wilhelmina Models were on the Island last month in hopes of spotting local talent at the City of Hamiltons Evolution Fashion Show this month.
Melissa Fiddick, Sophie Fraser-Smith, Rayneisha Bean, Terrae Christopher, Kayla Williams, Ava Braddock and Samuel Bean, are now being considered and could potentially be signed to one of the agencys three offices.
Said Paul Nelson, director of Wilhelmina Models mens division: It was a pleasure meeting the City team and the models and getting to know them.
From our first encounter at the model workshop and having the opportunity to coach Bermudas models, we have been watching their attitudes, personality, and looks to determine if there are any other models from Bermuda right for Wilhelmina.
We are looking to potentially sign models to one of our three main offices located in Miami, Los Angeles and New York.
After careful consideration and watching all the models both on and off the runway, we were able to shortlist six females and one male model for potential contracts with Wilhelmina Models.
City of Hamilton events and projects manager Danilee Trott stated: I extend sincere thanks to my team in Bermuda and a special thank you to Paul Nelson and Jorge Urena from Wilhelmina Models for coming to Bermuda to participate in, what has been called, Bermudas largest fashion event of the year.
I am excited about the potential of Bermudas models receiving contracts and being able to work at an international level.
The models will be contacted by Wilhelmina in the coming weeks about the next step.
