LIVE MANNEQUIN MODELING (Freeze Modeling)
Great for Trade Shows, Conventions, Bridal Shows, Retail Store Windows, Retail Stores, Birthday Parties, Toy Stores.
I'm very skilled at Mannequin Modeling and can remain still for extended periods of time. However, I'm very good at moving my head, arms, and hands subtly like a live Mannequin to provide an extraordinary customer experience by interacting with your customers in a positive way. I've been known to startle customers when they get close or walk by, simply by moving a hand or turning my head. I've had customers come up and touch me, or even look at a price tag hanging from my garment, not knowing I'm actually real.
My performance will attract an audience to your store front, inside your store, at your trade show area, convention area, party, birthday party, or special event. I've even been a Live Barbie Doll in a toy store. The kids love it.
I can model for up to 3 hours with one 10 minute break every 25 minutes. The breaks are normally used to switch outfits. If you request more fashion changes, the break times may vary depending on the amount of fashions and the amount of hours booked.
I will arrive to each booking hair and make-up ready. I will also bring a bag of a variety of shoes and accessories. Retail stores: If necessary, I can pull my own fashions from your retail floor based on your guidelines. Trade Shows, Conventions, Parties: I will need to know your preference in attire upon booking.

I have spent over 30 years in the Fashion and Modeling industry. Through the years I've achieved a reputation of professionalism with numerous clients in the fashion and modeling industry.
I began modeling professionally in New York City as a teenager, then went on to earn a college degree in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing from Wesley College. While attending college, I was named the President of the Fashion Club for two years. Upon graduating I worked at Lord and Taylor on Fifth Avenue in New York City as an Assistant Buyer Trainee. I later worked in the Empire State Building for Rosemont Sales Corp/Knitura. In this role, I continually assisted with the selection of fabrics used to create well-known clothing lines. I later moved to Virginia where I opened my own fashion show production company, producing fashion shows for Liz Claiborne and a variety of retailers.
While in Virginia I continued my professional modeling career. At this time I entered a Washington DC runway competition and won the title of Washington DC's Super Model of the Year. Later, to be close to family, I moved to Delaware. Shortly after moving, I earned the title of Delaware's Model of the Year, by a Wilmington based modeling agency, and went on to their International competition held in New York City. Later, I opened Dover, Delaware's first modeling agency called Spellbound Productions. I produced fashion shows for JCPenney's, the Dover Mall, Christiana Mall, Willow Grove Park Mall, and several televised fashion shows. I closed shop when I was hand selected to tour with Ebony Fashion Fair. I became the only model from Delaware to have the distinct honor. Some of my modeling highlights include being a regular fashion model for the QVC Network, modeling for Lloyd Boston, a fashion contributor of NBC's "Today Show", Leon Hall of the "E!" Network, and Roy Campbell of "America's Next Top Model". I've opened fashion shows with Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith, Samuel Jackson and other in the audience.
In addition to modeling, I've been a Television Host for Comcast Cables "News Makers". In this role, I interviewed local celebrities and politicians which aired during local segments of CNN's Headline News. I've mentored children. I've been a public speaker in front of an entire student body of High School students, and given awards to students for excellence in school. I've also represented companies by speaking at conventions and trade shows.
