SHAILAH EDMONDS

Runway Coach Extraordinaire

 

Runway To Success

 

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!)

 

Afterwards she 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!)
