Runway Coach Extraordinaire


After winning a modeling competition in New York City, Shailah was picked up by the Ford Agency. Not satisfied with the amount of work she was getting, with a photographers recommendation, she took off for Germany, settling in Munich with a top agency, International Talents, Inc. They re-shot her portfolio, and for six months, she did major bookings in runway, print and television.

She then moved to Milan, Italy for three months where she worked for major magazines, and top designers:

  • VERSACE      ARMANI      FERRE       FENDI        VALENTINO      GUCCI (to name a few!)


She soon  moved to Paris, where she lived for three years working exclusively for many of the industry's most celebrated couture designers:

  • YVES ST LAURENT       DIOR        GIVENCHY        VALENTINO   (and MANY more)

  • The first model to work for Givenchy and Yves St. Laurent in the same season (they were rivals!)

















After modeling in such places as Paris, Italy, Cote d'Ivoire, Africa, Portugal, London, Spain, Japan, Finland, for all the major designers there, Shailah has the know-how, and the expertise to coach in all areas of modeling. She knows what it takes to take control of the runway.

 Shailah’s great personality, along with her fabulous wardrobe and teaching technique, makes her workshops a fun, entertaining learning experience.

She walked with every major model in Europe!

Thank you so much! It was so nice meeting you and working with you. You helped me feel confident and feel my best! I could really feel the difference in my walk and attitude from the beginning to the end of the class with you.

Yay! Thanks so much! You helped me a lot. I have done a couple runway shows and never had any training. Now I can go out there and do it right.  I have so much more confidence now. With practice I will no longer be intimidated by runway!  You rock!  Thanks so much for your help! - Jazzlyn Marae


Thank you so much. It was so much fun working with you! Shailah is a great runway coach! We worked for an hour and I already can see the difference. She helped me a lot to improve my walk and my expressions in my face as well. Thank you so much Shailah for helping me, I really had fun! - Finja, Germany


I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your workshop. Kaliegh really enjoyed herself and learned a lot. She is hoping that this leads to bigger and better things. Your insights and advice is greatly appreciated. You had her looking like a professional. - T Garris

I contacted Shailah Edmonds because I was attending an open call for a Fashion Show and because I am considered a petite model without my 4-5 inch heels. I knew I had to be confident about my walk. Long story short, I booked the show! I was ecstatic!!! I couldn't of done it without Shailah's help. She gives you tips and secrets that you will NEVER learn at any modeling school. I have attended a very well known modeling school in New York so I am speaking from experience. She basically gives you on "the job training" for your audition. She is not only beautiful but she is extremely positive and patient. Although I have weekly rehearsals to prepare for the show I choose to train with Shailah so I can ROCK THE RUNWAY on the day of the show!!
