My name is Monchel and I am originally from North Carolina. I didn't have an interest in modeling until I was around 19 years old and decided if I was to purse this, I would dedicate myself entirely. I moved to Southern California and had the pleasure of taking part in runway, short films, print, and commercial modeling. Throughout the years, I continued to model in Northern California, Washington, Georgia, and eventually returned to North Carolina. I took a break to further my education in college and as a recent graduate, I have returned to modeling; now living in Philadelphia. The Sugar Art and Fashion Show will be my first runway since returning to modeling!
Outside of modeling, I love to travel and learn about different cultures. I love trying new foods. I'm friendly and at times goofy but I am always serious about my modeling career.

Hello my name is Farah Muhammad and i'm a freelance model from the Philadelphia area.I'm in search of a great agency who can help me take modeling to another level! I've done about 10 local fashion shows and a variety of photoshoots locally and now i would like to advance and do shows and shoots nationally.I want to inspire young women to pursue their dreams no matter what obstacles and doubts that may come their way !I look at modeling as a true artform and also a platform to many other professions.
I am a Ph.D. student studying infectious disease who looks to modeling as a way to express creativity. To me, modeling is truly a form of art conveying human emotions and communication. There is nothing I love more than working as a team with innovative designers, photographers, and makeup/hair stylists to engender bold, elegant, and dynamic images. I began modeling while studying abroad in England where I was published in R Magazine (Oxford’s Fashion Magazine). Since then, I have done print work and runway shows for several prominent Philly Fashion Week designers. As a genuine nerd at heart with an outgoing and girl next-door personality, it is important to me to challenge myself with new and diverse experiences to grow as an individual, academic, and artist.

Fatima Campbell has spent her life pursuing the arts as a painter, actress, sculptor, photographer and model. She enjoys modeling because it allows her to be a walking canvas for someone's artistic passion. She was born in Atlanta, GA, but raised in the West African country of Liberia. By the time she moved back stateside she started to work under her agency signed mother and pursued the art of modeling by starting with commercial work. Taking a break to finish college and focus on her painting and photography allowed her to see world of fashion from very different perspective. This rejuvenated her love of modeling and she has not stopped since. She has since waked in Atlanta, Boston, and New York Fashion weeks, has worked as an actress for major network television shows, been featured in magazines, and is now working towards her goal to be published on an international platform as a photographer and model. She is presently looking for representation in Los Angelas, Miami, Johannesburg, and New York. She can be summed up as saying: "I want to change the world through Fashion. Not only as an art form but as a social and economic force that can inspire even the youngest child to go for the impossible and conquer."

My name is Miss Stephanie, I am a 23-year-old Philadelphia based model, graphic designer, tattoo addict, bookworm, metal head, movie lover, food luster, and art enthusiast. I recently graduated from Moore College of Art & Design with a Bachelor’s degree in graphic design. I am a versatile and experimental artist; I am always searching for new ways of creating art and I am up for any challenge. I discovered my fascination for modeling in high school by helping friends that needed someone to practice their skills in photography, makeup, and hair styling. After gaining years of experience, I decided to take my modeling to the next level. I have been published in magazines, and have performed in several fashion shows working with many designers, makeup and hair artists, as well as photographers. Not only do I spend my time modeling, I also experiment on the other side of the lens as a photographer. I love to network and meet other artists that are looking to collaborate on different concepts. To see more of my work, visit the links below.
