For Mother Management‘s Jeff and Mary Clark having the right eye for talent is not enough. Nurturing the careers of Karlie Kloss, Katie Fogarty and Ashton Kutcher as well as countless other money makers takes heart and a passion for the business. To celebrate their success, Mother Model held a Tribute show in their hometown of St. Louis where residents, models and family alike celebrated the contribution the agency has made to its city and inhabitants.
With a pull from STL’s vintage boutiques and Tia Reagan and a warehouse space to rival NY, the runway show brought a fashionable crowd dedicated to dressing their best. A pre-show pot luck and families seated front row made this Tribute show as much a midwest reunion as an international model celebration. In an industry which is based on travel, these guys and girls were thrilled to be home.
