June Model Launcher Winner Brandi Nicole Walks the Runway on Season 10 of Project Runway
Brandi Nicole, the June winner of an innovative amateur modeling website ModelLauncher.com, (http://modellauncher.com/), officially walked within her first New York City Mercedes Benz Fashion week runway show on September 7th 2012 at Lincoln Center. Placement within the show was a result of Brandi being cast as a feature model within Project Runway's season 10 which is yet to air. Brandi Nicole's modeling career hit a high note when she was announced as the official June Model Launcher winner where she was asked to submit her non-professional photo in a t-shirt and shorts via ModelLauncher.com. After competing against hundreds of other young women ages 21-25, Brandi Nicolewon a paid trip to Miami for her and a guest, a stay at the W Hotel South Beach, a Professional photo shoot with photographer John Fisher, and publicity support by Beautiful Planning Marketing & PR (BPMPR). ModelLauncher.com is powered by public votes for models with the end goal of fairly and effectively launching new models into stardom and providing them full career kick off support. Almost immediately after her Model Launcher win, aspiring model Brandi Nicole was cast for Season 10 of Project Runway, where she served as the runway model for pieces created by fashion designer Gunnar Deatherage.
"Working with Project Runway and Gunnar Deatherage was an incredible experience. I received all of my instructions in a timely manner, so all I had to do was show up on time. It reminded of the Model Launcher team in Miami. Model Launcher has definitely been a spring board for my modeling career. I can't wait to see what is in store for my modeling career within the coming months." States Brandi Nicole, June ModelLauncher.com winner. "The professionalism of the Project Runway team made the excitement of a live show and the beautiful people I met behind the scenes really enjoyable. I'm grateful that Deatherage's collection was my first show in Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week."
