"Model on Model" Shoot Leads to 2 Wilhelmina Contracts

Posted on:- 14 June, 2010

Wilhelmina models recommended plus models, Becca Thorpe

and Philippa Allam

to be the photographer and stylist of a shoot with international plus models Jenny Dettner

and Erika Demmer.

Becca has modeled for Lands End, Macy’s, Lane Bryant, and the Avenue, which allowed her to get a photographer’s eye for what makes or breaks a photo. Philippa has modeled for H&M, Levi’s, Liz Claiborne, and Glamour magazine and is recognized for her great sense of style. Philippa uses her passion for fashion to put together great looks that are guaranteed to turn heads. The two professional models working behind the scenes were a deadly duo creating a very successful shoot inspired by New York City called City Street Blues.

City Street Blues was a shoot based on Jenny and Erika’s unifying American dream of becoming a plus model in the big city. It took place in a gritty yet glamorous setting in the lower east side. The models were shot wearing denim, which represented an iconic American fashion staple. This “Model on Model” shoot turned out to be a dream come true for Erika and Jenny landing them contracts with Wilhelmina’s W Curve division.
