Supermodels Unlimited Magazine will celebrate New York Fashion Week and the release of its Fall “Most Beautiful Models” issue with a charity fashion show at HK Hall this Saturday.  

Jordan Kimball from ABC’s The Bachelorette and beauty influencer Lisa Opie will host the benefit.   The runway show will feature television reality stars  Kasey Cohen from Bravo’s Below Deck Mediterranean and Nick Spetsas from ABC’s The Bachelorette and Bachelor in Paradise presenting the latest collections from Laylah Rose Couture and PinkApple Dresses.  Biff Gore from NBC’s The Voice and the pop rock trio from FOX-TV's The X FactorEmblem3, will perform.

Rapper Ja Rule and drag queen Kevin Aviance will appear as special guests.  Also on hand will be the magazine's current cover model Landyn Exarhos.  At 14-years-old, Exarhos is the reigning Teen International World USA.  She will compete for the international title this October.

“Landyn’s true beauty is in her charitable contributions,” Mary Baldwin, creative director of Supermodels Unlimited, explains.  “She is one of the youngest members of the National Humane Society’s Advisory Board and the founder of Teen Edge’s BeYOUty Camp, a group that empowers young patients at Shriner’s Children’s Hospital.    At school, Landyn is on the academic honor roll and serves as Class President.”

Exarhos is also an entrepreneur.  She filed her first patent for a soap that protects against the spread of viruses.  It changes color after twenty seconds to alert users they have reached the CDC’s recommendations! 

The charity fashion presentation at HK Hall will spotlight three significant causes with themed runway shows.  The first will honor September as Suicide Awareness month.  Models will walk the runway with custom T-shirts emblazoned with suicide awareness and prevention messaging.  

The next will be a Spring Preview influencer fashion show.  Recognizing October as Breast Cancer Awareness month, it will feature all pink fashion from top brands including SHEIN, Victoria Secret Pink as well as other strong proponents of breast cancer awareness.  

The third and final show will pay tribute to Ukraine with all yellow and blue designs.   Proceeds from all shows will benefit the National Suicide Hotline, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and Heart to Heart, an organization that is providing relief to Ukraine.  

As part of the Fashion Week event, Supermodels Unlimited Magazine will hold a live model search for their next cover model.   They will also host a champagne reception from 8-9PM to give guests an opportunity to spend time with the celebrity models.
