The Wearable Art Gala





After a week of attending our curated itinerary of workshops, training, fittings, castings, and photoshoots our participants enter the star-studded Wearable Art Gala event to implement their newly learned skills.

Challenge: Enhancing Model Utilization and Audience Engagement

The Modelpreneur Bootcamp's collaboration with The Wearable Art Gala, led by Tina Knowles, began with my participation as a model in the second season of the gala event. I observed that the models were being underutilized, particularly during the art auction, where their presence could have significantly enhanced audience engagement and excitement.

Initiative: Creating Dynamic Photo Opportunities

During the gala, I noticed an open wall space illuminated by a spotlight after an art piece was sold. Recognizing an opportunity to engage the crowd, I stood in the light and began posing. As the attendees moved to the next room for the award portion of the event, they passed by me, creating a buzz of excitement. Many stopped to take photos, leading to increased engagement and social media activity. Additionally, I invited a show performer to join me, further enhancing the photo opportunity for attendees.

Implementation: Innovating Engagement Strategies

The success of this spontaneous initiative led to a more structured approach in the following season:

  1. Model Integration: We integrated models into key areas of the event to create dynamic photo opportunities, enhancing the overall guest experience.

  2. Collaborative Performance: Inviting performers to join the models provided unique and memorable interactions for attendees.

  3. Strategic Placement: Ensuring models were strategically placed throughout the event space to maximize visibility and engagement.
