We have some exciting news for you! Model Village has officially launched in one of the world's biggest fashion hubs. During New York Fashion Week (September 7 - 13th) we opened up our app and platform to the Big Apple: New York! Find out what we got up to during the week, NYFW's hottest events and what to expect for the future of Model Village.
first of all, Why NYC?
As one of the most highly recognised fashion capitals of the world, New York is the home to huge established designers such as Alice & Olivia, BCBG Max Azria, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors and lots more. This inevitably makes it a hub for fashion models, including the industry's biggest names. It therefore makes complete sense to launch the Model Village app and platform there, providing models with a huge range of experiences, perks and lifestyle benefits.
Interview Magazine event
The event took place on Thursday September 7th and celebrated the release of Interview magazine's last cover of year 2017. With Kim Kardashian West on the cover dressed as a modern-day Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, with her daughter North West by her side, the cover is set to cause a splash in the media. We were there to see it for ourselves en avant-première.
Interview magazine is an American magazine founded in late 1969 by artist Andy Warhol and British journalist John Wilcock. It features intimate conversations between some of the world's biggest celebrities, artists, musicians, and creative thinkers.
Fenty Beauty launch after party
We also attended the eagerly anticipated Fenty Beauty by Rihanna event at 1 OAK and Up and Down on Thursday September 7th. With a guest list packed with A-listers including the likes of Gizele Oliveira, Leonardo DiCaprio and Richie Aqiva, Rihanna showcased her new beauty line, aimed to suit all skin tones, with no less than 40 shades of foundations!
The event was a great success and we are certain the cosmetics' line will make the media for all the right reasons.
model village official launch at richard taittinger gallery
Our official launch event took place at the Richard Taittinger Gallery in Manhattan on Saturday September 9th.
The gallery was in the ideal location, situated within a creative space for creative minds to gather and connect around the fashion and art industry. The exhibition showing during the event was entitled "EXPERIMENTAL BERLIN" and runs until October 15th 2017.
The Exhibition: "Explores the varying applications of painterly materials and forms– analysis of industrial techniques and social appropriations by some of the city’s best artists."

The guest list included the all-obvious fashion models, but also guests from the digital, marketing and tech scene, as well as beauty and fashion who all came to celebrate our launch.
Conversations flowed all evening long and guests enjoyed refreshments and music by DJ Cranks until the early hours of the morning.
