40 years of Wilhelmina

MDC, perched in the VIP section, captures Fergie and the action.

Wilhelmina New York‘s big blowout bash at the stunning Angel Orensanz Foundation had everything you needed for a showstopping extravaganza. The models, stars and VIP clients helped Wilhelmina President Sean Patterson and the hardworking Wilhelmina crew celebrate their 40th in high style. Wilhelmina top artist Fergie, as the main attraction, galvanized the usually jaded fashionistas into dancing and carousing with her mouth dropping performance. The crowd- everyone from fashion legend Beverly Johnson to CK It boy, Jamie Burke– ran the gamut of the different areas of the industry. Models, rock stars, confetti cannons, free flowing vodka, and a huge birthday cake, what more could a venerable giant in the business want?

VIP clients that also attended: Stephen Gan from Visionaire, John Pfeiffer, Jennifer Starr, GQ’s Richard Blandino and Brian Cotes, Details’ Matthew Edelstein and Micah Johnson, Bureau Betak’s Barbara Forneau, KCD’s Michelle Lee, VP’s from Calvin Klein, Shahid+Co’s Nando de Carvalho and Laird & Partners’ Trey Laird and Ray DiPietro and many more.
