Modelogic Wilhelmina Celebrates It’s 20th Year!

In 1993, armed with a yellow legal pad, a tiny office in Shockoe Bottom and a small loan from my mom, I started Modelogic, Inc.  20 years later, we are still here and still growing.

To celebrate the occasion we decided to throw a  big fancy party and say thanks to all of our clients.  We held the party downtown in the offices of our friend, Joel Erb, who owns INM United, a fantastic web development company. His amazing space, with vaulted ceilings, huge windows and graphic flooring was the perfect place to hold our bash.  Event planner, Wendy Wyne, owner of Fete Studios designed a gorgeous space with beautiful lighting, cool lounge furniture and tons of tulips (my fav) .

In attendance was our friend Jay Alexander, or “Miss J” of America’s Next Top Model fame,  tons of clients including photographers, directors, designers and producers, and of course a few very beautiful models. Music was courtesy of DJ Deff, Trevor Haremaker , who flew in from LA to spin (he is also one of our fav models) and we even had some  friends from Wilhelmina LA and Wilhelmina NY.  Our new Chicago office was represented by agency director Andrea Shipp and Agent Dan Tower who flew here on a 12 hour delay!  (oh airlines ) .. even our awesome assistant Ari was there!   A good time was had by all.

My deepest gratitude goes out to all the support I have received from the advertising community both here and nationally and to all the models and actors who have been so amazing to work with. Here’s to the next 20!!
