TUESDAY FEBRUARY 28, 2012
As a fashion model the most important rule to live by, is to seek out and obtain accurate and up to date education and training in your craft. ModelBiz Radio’s mission is to provide the means for aspiring models and actors to do just that.
How would you like to speak personally and get the information from one of the worlds most respected fashion models and model scouts directly out of Paris France?Well……..
Directly from Paris France to Modelbiz Radio today’s guest is European International model scout Kim Luret.
For over 25 years Kim Luret has stood out as a premier expert in the modeling industry.
Eleven of those years she spent as a renowned high fashion model on the runways of Paris, Milan,
Tokyo and New York. Her client list includes fashion icons such as Christian Dior, Yves Saint Laurent, Giorgio Armani,
Calvin Klein, Karl Lagerfeld and Gianni Versace, to name but a few.
In that time Kim was also featured in magazines, television commercials and four feature length movies. Her modeling career has taken her across the globe to more than 50 countries.
To say she “knows her stuff”, would be putting it mildly…
After a highly successful modeling career, Kim took her experience and insight and moved to " the other side".
She became a model scout and continues to travel the world today in search of
the next great talent.
Today she has a new calling. Kim never forgot how she felt as an aspiring model to have a dream but not the knowledge of where to begin or how to make it a reality.
In founding her own company, Inner Modeling. Kim has made it her mission to remove the guesswork. She knows that for the beginning model it's a matter of understanding their unique package and then knowing exactly how and where to market that package. Through her powerful seminars and program,
Kim leads aspiring models to their full potential and greatest success in the shortest time possible.
Kim Luret's combined experience from modeling hopeful to high fashion success story and then on to becoming one of the most experienced and respected scouts in the business gives her insight into modeling success secrets that is as unique as it is priceless.
BUT.... Here's the best part- Kim will be joining the Modelbiz Staff as a new co-host and will be an on-going host every Tuesday from 5-7pm central . Tune in Modelbiz in 2012 just got a whole lot better.

Founder and Artistic Director of HappyNia Dance Theater and few cast members will be our in-studio guest this Thursday to discuss the upcoming event "Tears on Blood" and the awareness of HIV AIDS.
We are committed to using fashion as a way of looking at the functions of the cells in the body hosted by a poor or compromised immune system. Our intent is to peek curiosity and challenge other performing arts organizations in the metroplex to engage in more creative ways to address the issues of HIV/AIDS and its compromising complications. We would like to encourage everyone in the community to come out and dialogue with us about this disease.
We would like to honor three (3) specific honorees and recognize those who are active in the community as it relates to prevention and outreach. We honor them for their tireless efforts in staying in the fight to help save the community.
We are asking for all to come and enjoy the show, but also bring your wallets to give to a cause that will help encourage more work from the community and we will use our artistic expressions to help influence the process. Funds from this fundraiser will go towards sending four (4) young dancers to college, with enough money to pay for their first year of books and a partial payment for their housing.
We hope that you are willing to help us make a difference inthe lives of our youth and do what we think is best for their future and the only way to do that is to sew a seed in their education.

This weeks Instudio Guest : 2 extrodinary guest 1 show!
Fashion Designer Yasmina Johnston
As a graduate from the Art Institute of Dallas, Yasmina Johnston has
already made an emphasis in the local Dallas fashion industry. She
first started out as an artist at Brookhaven College School of the
Arts. Here her talent was able to mature and gain character through
studio art and film. Yasmina then later transfered to the Art
Institute of Dallas to pursue a career in fashion design.
During her studies she unified the elements of art and design in her
collections. She quickly became known for expressing her artistic
talent by pushing the limits of what is art and what is fashion. With
her award-winning garments, Yasmina has had the opportunity to
communicate with industry professionals and has gained national
recognition. She was then able to gain internships with Dallas leading
designers such as Abi Ferrin, Nicolas Villalba, and Elizabeth Anyaa.
She is currently working at Saks Fifth Avenue in the visual
department as the men’s floor stylist. Because of her passion and
dedication for this industry, she has been involved in fashion events
and plans to volunteer her skills and talents in the future. She has
volunteered her visual and fashion skills for Kidney Texas, DIFFA and
other fashion show productions, working with Jan Strimple and other
leading design professionals. Through these opportunities, Yasmina has
been able to grow, and has become a dedicated individual.
Yasmina is working on her designs labeled DIOS. The DIOS design
philosophy coincides with this new age in fashion, where experimental
design and function is combined. Using “the future is now” as her
driving voice, to show that we hold the future of fashion and that we
can react now to what we’ve always wanted. Using uncommon materials
for the sake of fashion and art. Wearing unusual silhouettes and
imagery, for the soul purpose of expressing yourself through clothing.
DIOS garments are one of a kind, and some are strictly conceptual.
Others are “ready to wear”, but with a twist. She is working on her
website DIOSARTS.com, which will be available soon.
Celebrity Fashion Show Hair Stylist Monica Lily.
Monica has been very active in the hair industry since she graduated from the Toni & Guy Academy almost eleven years ago. While she enjoys working behind the chair to cater to her growing clientele, she thrives behind the scenes of the fashion world. Monica Lily had been involved some editorial photo shoots and runway shows building her portfolio, but her editorial carrier took a running start since joining the team at Blanc Salon. She has participated in some of the biggest shows here in Dallas including: 2010 Shirin Askari Debut Fashion Show, Designing With A Vision - Sergey Ermakoy, 2010 and 2011 Nha Khanh Fashion Show, and August Alexander, just to name a few. Her latest success was participating in 2011 DIFFA. While working the show it was apparent that she had grown as an artist over the last eleven years, but by observing the amazing talent that surrounded her she realized there is still so much to learn. She is inspired by the ever so changing fashion and photography world, and continues her journey as an artist.
"It's all about balance. I love my clients and the energy they bring to the salon each day, yet the fashion world consistently inspires my pursuit of creating artistry though hair. It's loving the two worlds equally." - Monica Lily
