Fashion week in New York is like Christmas and Halloween all over again! Fashionistas scribble down shows and parties to attend, models are running to castings and booking some shows, designers are making the last adjustments to their collection.. Even the nightclubs get into the action by hosting a few snazzy parties around the city. This year, Beau Monde Society met a young and aspiring model, Shennai Saunders from Rye, Westchester. At 18 years old, she stands at an amazon height of 6ft2, striking features and an outgoing attitude. We first worked with her for our Midsummer Jungle shoot last month followed by Brooklyn Museum’s First Saturday where she walked for Cameroonian designer, Kibonen. She participated in her first season at NYFW walking for Harlem Fashion Row held at Harlem’s Apollo Theatre. Here are some of the behind the scenes photos from Shennai enjoying her debut season as a fashion model.
