The Mark Headen Endowment Fund and Wells Fargo Private Bank are pleased to announce the second fundraising event Modeling for Impact on January 20th, 2018 at The Mint Museum - Uptown in Charlotte, NC. With gratitude and pride, the event will be a part of The Mint’s Year of Fashion celebration. All proceeds will be contributed to North Carolina Outward Bound’s Intercept program.
Modeling for Impact will feature a runway show produced, casted, and styled by Headenistic - a Charlotte-based full-service production and talent agency owned by the late Mark Headen’s eldest son, Franklin Headen. Franklin has worked for the last six years as a photo producer, casting director, wardrobe stylist, model scout, and talent manager for fashion brands throughout the US and the UK. He started his journey in fashion as a Historic Costume Collection Intern at The Mint Museum back in 2010. He was also heavily involved in writing the copy for the Oscar de la Renta Art of Fashion retrospective and the production of the fashion show presentation in 2011.
Los Angeles fashion brands Indah, Hot as Hell, and Beach Riot, as well as New York lines _SCAPES NY and 6 Shore Road will be sending their new collections to be debuted on the Modeling for Impact runway. Amerie 1936—a Charlotte-based accessories brand by sisters Jasmine and Shanetta Foster—will be adorning the runway looks with their jewelry. Award-winning New York City-based makeup artist and hair stylist Katy Albright will be creating the beauty looks for the runway show. New York City-based fashion and portrait photographers Nikki Krecicki and Grace Ann Leadbeater will be documenting the event.
Acclaimed news anchor Maureen O’Boyle will emcee the event.
