Vixen Events: East New York Next Top Model


On a warm transitional seasoned day, East New York came together for a showcase of its residential talent–East New York Top Model. The second annual competition held by ARTs East New York brought out twenty-plus male and female models ready to rip the runway and gain the title of East NY Top Model. The competitors catwalked in collections from designers Chi Chi Vogue by Marsha Williams and Bloodline Denim by Kareem. Sponsored by Urban Outfitters, the fashion show featured high-end couture and street wear.

Judged by one of Vixen’s own and Wardrobe Stylist Corin Wright of Style Haven Boutique, the models also participated in a Q&A that would prove why they deserved the title. Upcoming crooner John Thomas, who currently has a hit single titled “Enough of You” surfacing on Hot 97, serenaded the audience with his smooth vocals during intermission.

Nekesha Green, Tereca Green and Nigel Guscott won the competition and were crowned East New York’s Top Model. They will be the face of their community at upcoming events and contribute to volunteer work including holiday toy drives, soup kitchens and gallery openings.
