The “superbowl of fashion shows”  that The Model Experience (TME) has become famous for in Los Angeles rocked a newcoast last weekend for New York Fashion Week. At TME’s inaugural NYFW show over 800 models hit the runway along with performances from Billboard-charting raptress Coi Leray and Saucy Santana (fresh off his MTV Video Music Awards performance). Music royalty Grandmaster Flash made an appearance and attendees enjoyed a DJ set from model and artist Shaun Ross.

For over a decade TME has been giving up-and-coming models the chance to walk the runway. Their glowing community has now become a bi-coastal brand after manifesting the New York show that’s been in the works for many seasons. As Ashley Covarrubias has shared about her organization, “we truly provide the model experience that aspiring talents need, and with accolades like placements in Vogue with designers who’ve gone on to work with stars like Cardi B, our reputation is golden.” The TME event unveiled dozens of designers’ newest collections.

UP NEXT: TME has a sold out 3-day Los Angeles Fashion Week (LAFW) show with soon-to-be released celebrity designers and performances, including artist Bia, starting October 7th!
