SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Suzy Kellems Dominik, San Francisco-based publisher of online magazine www.ofwitandwill.com, renews her collaboration with Elite World, the world’s leading model management agency, to be the official US Couture and Culture Correspondent of its 30th Anniversary of the Elite Model Look World Final to be held in Shenzhen, China from November 20 to 27, 2013.
Kellems Dominik will be reporting on daily events, providing exclusive “behind-the-scenes” commentaries, interviews and insights about the 60 contestants, found in a global search across 800 cities, each a winner in their own country and each attempting to transform from aspiring hopefuls to top models.
Kellems Dominik will also host her Fashion Boot Camp session on November 23, introducing the contestants to her exclusive collection of vintage couture spanning the past 30 years and beyond with selected pieces from Alexander McQueen, Alaia, Dolce and Gabbana, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Claude Montana and Gianni Versace. Kellems Dominik will take the Elite contestants through look selection and offer inspiration to the young models on how to create unique looks from gems found in fast fashion retail stores and vintage shops (and their own closets).
“It’s not just about rocking the runways wearing breathtaking pieces. It’s about acknowledging your inner beauty goddess and feeling like the garment was designed just for you. That’s what Gisele and Cindy do — why they are successful,” comments Kellems Dominik.
“We wanted to expand the breadth of all the experiences our contestants could go through and bringing back Suzy’s expertise and collection enables us to open the girls’ minds to the world of fashion,” comments Stefania Valenti, CEO of Elite World. “Seeing the girls experiencing vintage couture, whether during the workshop, fittings or photo shoots, has been incredibly exciting and demonstrated that investing in this format is a huge asset for the models and for the event overall.”
The aspiring models, including Kaylin Rogers and Lauren Anthony representing the US, will compete through a life-changing experience, guided by exceptional mentors and Elite Top Models, to become the next fashion icons, following in the footsteps of Gisele Bündchen, Cindy Crawford, Alessandra Ambrosio and others who got their start during Elite Model Look’s 30-year history.
Kellems Dominik will lead her workshop in Shenzhen’s Longhua New District, positioned to be the next international fashion hub, making Kellems Dominik’s role in China a strategic reflection of America’s sterling fashion reputation. Kellems Dominik will also introduce her workshop in Shenzhen as an opportunity to announce her soon-to-be-launched new venture, an online fashion and lifestyle magazine called, “Whatever, from the Ballroom.”
