Fashion Celebrity &Top Model Naima Mora to Host Santa Fe Fashion Week
SANTA FE/ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO (May 11, 2015) – Santa Fe Fashion Week™ announced through social media this week that their 2015 event will be hosted by 2013 America’s Next Top Model Winner Naima Mora. The event, now in its fourth year, runs October 13-17th at the Santa Fe Convention Center. Executive Producer Amanda Caserta considers Mora a perfect fit as host stating that, “Naima simply exudes our motto ‘Beauty from the inside, out’ as an inspirational business woman, major influencer, and social media powerhouse. As Fashion Week we aim high to be a major asset to the travel industry in New Mexico. In order to do the ‘City Different’ justice, we align ourselves with and introduce powerful allies like Naima who can both contribute to and showcase well our regional Santa Fe Style and New Mexico culture.”
Ms. Mora is a native of Detroit, but moved to New York City at eighteen to pursue a ballet career. She joined the Dance Theatre of Harlem before shifting her focus to modeling after being discovered and scouted for the television series America’s Next Top Model. Naima later won the title of Top Model, which led to appearances in a variety of magazines, commercials and television shows, including Bravo’s Project Runway.
To simply label Naima a model/actress would be shortsighted however. She published a book in 2014 entitled ‘Model Behavior’ available on Amazon, and received acclaim for her 2013 TEDx Sacramento talk on ‘Inspiration’s Potential to Change the World.’ Naima has also been an outspoken member of the Buddhist community and was featured in SGI-USAmedia’s series entitled ‘Buddhist in America.’
Adding to the excitement of Ms. Mora’s involvement with the event is the fact that she will be performing her first solo single “Hour Glass” on stage at Santa Fe Fashion Week™. Produced by Grammy winner Josh Stevens, “Hour Glass’” marks the first release of Naima’s recording career.
