Sarah Ziff & Angela Cappetta

Dozens of top models in a NYC loft and its not even Fashion Week?
That's what happens when models Sarah Ziff -Chairman, and Aine Rose Campbell - Advisory Board Member, assemble a panel to discuss life after the runway to a room full of nw and retiring talent. The thing is, said panel is made up mostly of models. But not just any models. We're talking the faces of Burberry, Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Gap. Magazine covers, billboards, features in the well. These are models with distinguished careers. Plot twist! They're all semi retried, and they're all under 40. So what's next for these ambitious muses? That's exactly the point.
Sarah says: "[Recently], the Model Alliance hosted "Careers Beyond the Runway," a panel discussion for models interested in developing new careers within and outside of the fashion industry. The panel featured Monica Watkins, founder of Art in Motion, Tara Stiles, best-selling author and founder and CEO of Strala Yoga, Paula Viola, counsel at IMG Models Worldwide, Lisa Davies, labor and delivery nurse at Lenox Hill Hospital, and Lauren Gordon, career counsel at Career Transition For Dancers. The panelists spoke about their modeling experiences and how they transitioned to their new careers. We are grateful to them for their valuable insights and to MA advisory board member Aine Campbell for organizing this panel. Thanks to Angela Cappetta LLC for photographing the event."
