I am a 20 year old college student at the University of Minnesota. Getting involved with modeling has been a dream of mine since I was about 10 and it has become a reality in more recent years. My first modeling experience was a fashion show in my parents living room after quite the serious shopping trip ;) Since then I have volunteered in a local back-to-school fashion show, and I have worked with a few photographers in Minneapolis doing print work. I love being in front of the camera and on the runway, and I appreciate every chance I get. I don't know about everyone else, but I cannot wait for the Sugar Art and Fashion Show does Minneapolis!
My names is Darliza Howse, I am currently a student at the art institute getting my Bachelors for Fashion Retail Management and fashion design. I have been modeling on and off now going on three years and it is just anther form of expression to me. I have been singing,dancing, and acting since the age of three and have been in a few pageants I love modeling and always wanted to be a model since I seen Tyra and Kimora. I am very excited to be apart of this show and meeting and networking and learning as much as possible from everyone.
I've been freelance modeling for the past 6 years and have been with Reel People Modeling Agency for the past 3 years. I grew up in a tiny town and went off to college where I had a friend encourage me to really push into the modeling industry. In high school I did various pageants and then grew into doing photoshoots as I transitioned into college. I joined my modeling agency and networked with many new models and photographers that I hadn't known about prior to. I've also had the amazing opportunity to model for Japanese designers H.Naoto, Sixh IBI, and Neko MINT. As I branched out, I found many new likes in the industry including cosplay. Since 2010, I've been traveling the United States attending conventions with my cosplays in places such as Seattle, Chicago, Detroit, Minneapolis, Kansas City, and many other cities along the way.
I am 25 years old and have been intrigued by all things art ever since I can remember. From modeling and fashion to music and painting, I love everything inbetween. I completed Acting classes at Concordia University-St. Paul, and have a Bachelor of Science degree from the beautiful University of Minnesota. I have worked with many talented photographers, models, and artists from the Twin Cities and surrounding areas and absolutely love what Minnesota has to offer. I currently live in Stillwater where I am actively volunteering in the St. Croix Art Reach program that prides itself in promoting/educating surrounding area artists and their audiences. I am so looking forward to being a part of the Sugar Art and Fashion Show and cannot wait to hit the runway!
I am 33 years old and have to say what an honor it is to be selected alongside all the other great models to the Sugar Art and Fashion Show does Minneapolis 2013. I grew up in the in the eastern suburbs of St. Paul and graduated from UW-River Falls with a B.A in Physical Education and from the U of MN-Duluth with a Master’s in Education. I enjoy all outside activities whether it is on a lake or the golf course! Modeling has always been a passion of mine enjoying the time in front of the camera, however being very much appreciative of all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes that truly make each project a success. I have been in involved with commercials, music videos, runway shows, and print work this past year along with receiving representation from a couple local agencies in the Twin Cities. My favorite project up until being selected for the Sugar Art and Fashion Show was representing Paul Mitchell as a hair model at the Great Clips Convention in October of 2012. I am excited to see where this adventure will take me in the coming future!! Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org even to just say Hi!!

Heather Amos' first conscious memory as a child growing up in small town Iowa, is of being photographed in a crazy outfit. Since the age of two she has been performing on some level, starting in community theater productions and moving on to earn a BA from Trinity College.
At 17 she started modeling locally and was hooked. She loves collaborating with photographers, stylists, and designers to capture works of art on film.
Since moving to Minneapolis in 2003, Heather has appeared in music videos for bands such as NOFX, Tapes N Tapes, Ela, and a Farewell Rescue as well as countless stage productions and independent film . She has graced the runways for Aveda and designers such as Blasphemina's Closet, Deborah Block, Scoundrelle's Keep, Lauren Peyton and is a proud supporter of the stellar Minneapolis fashion scene.
When Heather was around the age of 8, she began writing and directing plays and has also delved into the worlds of improv and film production. She spends her days working with inner city children at a non profits arts school.
My name is Christin Verhoeven and I have been working with Privileged Model Management for about 2 years now. I grew up in a very small town of about 300 people then moved to Fargo, ND for college. My first year I studied Biochemistry before switching my Major to Psychology with an emphasis in Criminology. I only attended for 1 1/2 years
before leaving due to not being able to afford a 4 year school. I now work for a company called Prairie Community Services as a Consumer Counselor where I work with developmentally disabled individuals. I absolutely love the work that I do and enjoy being a part of my Consumers lives. I have always wanted to be a model but never thought about pursuing it until a few years ago figuring that being from a small town would hold me back. I have only been in the business for a short time with only a few things such as a Twin Cities Live segment under my belt but I have such a drive in me to do so much more with my career and make myself better than I ever knew possible.
I am an energetic 25 year old young woman who is taking graduate classes from Bemidji State (online and almost finished) to be a special education teacher. I currently have my BS in Elementary Education and a music minor. I recently moved to the twin cities with my husband Garret. Although I have a short resume in the modeling/acting, I work well on the set and am always professional and LOVE to learn new things. As a model of Privileged Model management I am excited for what God has in store. I have had the pleasure of having a small speaking role in a short film by Casmier Entertainment LLC directed/produced by Chauntel Williams called Forward Flash; being an extra in a PBS Documentary called Bemidji: The Middle Years by Gary Burger as a swing dancer; and modeling in a runway show with Maurices in Bemidji, MN. Some of the activities that I enjoy are singing, running, playing piano, swing/ballroom dance, riding horse, and downhill skiing. I am so thankful for each opportunity God has sent my way and I look forward to the adventure!

Hello, my name is Sanyu Lubogo. I am 19 years old and currently an International Business/Pre-Law student at Rollins College in Florida. I am from Minnesota and reside here when I'm not in school.

The names Bre. I am 20 years old and I live in Willmar, Minnesota. Although I am originally from Kenai, Alaska. I have always been interested in modeling, it has always been a dream of mine to be on the cover of some magazine, always dressed up for no reason. I love music, that is my second passion. Fun fact: I was in the Alaska All State Choir in high school. I am a very fun, spontaneous person. I like to cook, sing out loud, go on adventures, sew, and my most recent endeavor, doing nails. I guess I have always been an artsy person. I was the one in my family who had a huge box of arts and craft supplies and ripped up clothes I was "designing".
