These relevant designers are today's HOTTEST South Asian couture innovators- no strangers to fashion buyers and consumers at US and international fashion weeks- one a standing ovation while reviewed by British Vogue's Hilary Alexander.

UR SuperModels knows when Luna hires, she rep's the most sought after and acclaimed designer in its right, while we graciously have the honor to showcase her Chicago runway events. The community and mediums flocks to her shows in demanding numbers to cover and buy, buy, buy the latest south asian fashions just off the international runways.

q: As our reading guest, what can one expect of this full fledged featured entry?

a: It'll be like you were at the November 2011 show! First, our favorites photos from the runway, behind the scenes video, then words and credits. It was reported the Hamdard Center raised nearly $250,000, selling individual tickets at $125, but mostly tables of ten, live auction, over 200 sponsors, and vendors, providing guests with an outstanding dinner, 30 minute high couture fashion show, and acclaimed live music performance, with Master of Ceremony ABC-7 News Ravi Baichwal to satisfy the non-profits annual mission. 

UR SuperModels was responsible for booking makeup artists for 12 models & 20 dancers, hair stylists (same), runway models, pairing wardrobe model of 100 looks, backstage direction before and during the show, as well as fashion show photography- most of the artists booked were all developed in-house UR Artists and UR SuperModels trained runway models -Asha Spacek as their artistic director.

q: How was UR SuperModels & UR Artists at ursupermodels, part of this 19th Annual Gala?

a: 2011 was another year UR SuperModels is the exclusive management to provide models, AND for the first year, also hired for backstage fashion show direction for the annual Hamdard Gala by Designer Studio, producers & creator of the show. Artistic Director, Asha Spacek was asked to act as production asst/casting director, backstage director pre, during runway, and post vip lounge/media production, and co-stylist for 100 pieces, 7 UR SuperModels (1 prospect fly in model & 2 guest local models rounded up to 10) during a 30 minute show including provided dancers. Asha booked UR Artists hair stylist Jason Patrick, and new hair color specialist/hairstylist Darion Denise to create the 2 looks choreographed with a 7min performance break to satisfy the palette of an approximate 900 guests. The schematics were instructed from Designer Studio and the designers themselves, while it was Asha and her team's responsibility to convey, execute, and deliver those requests in a timely fashion, while also controlling the runway pace and choreography, plus wardrobe changes. Images were captured by new in- house event photographer Conrad Castelo, whom Asha has dedicated the past year developing and is now referring for fashion related events. We thank one of our go-to affiliates, London Eyes Inc, sponsor of select makeup artists to help save budget for the cause, and yet expose their budding artists to the backstage elements they can expect if they continue in this realm of makeup artistry. 

Asha's thoughts...
"Being able to co-produce, direct, and style such infamous works that have shown in major fashion weeks, is an honor! Luckily, I am finally building a team that supports my 'day one' vision: mesh the world of fashion, music, art, with giving back! Designer Studio is a long-term client and confidant; I love what I do, and I know the blessing will be returned," Asha is noted. -link to designer videos and articles are below

Company reflects...
Since taking on this dual booking near the same time of UR's annual showcase, we decided to scour our event which usually brings awareness not only to new and prospective models and artists, but also to a non-profit. "It was a no-brainer AND a win/win," explained Asha. It made no sense to compete against causes, nor overexhurt our team. Part of the UR SuperModels mission, is to hopefully select one non-profit with fundraising efforts and production per year.  Not only was it [Hamdard Gala] a beautifully gratifying production, but emerging models and artists were rewarded [not knowing when booked] highlighting some of South Asian cultures biggest known designers that have recently crossed into the US fashion week market. The client was satisfied and we look forward to being booked in 2012.

asha spacek poses this october with ad after hired drake event

October 2011- So it was almost one year ago, UR SuperModels Artistic Director, Asha Spacek produced the Winter 2010/2011 ad campaign for Oak Street furrier, Fabbri Furs. Since published by TCW Magazine in January 2011,  the "face" imagery has become Fabbri's full window display (seen above) at the historic, Drake Hotel since late Spring/Early Fall. A highly desired [and rarely available] window space facing stores like Louis Vuitton and Bloomingdale's, UR SuperModels is quite honored to allow emerging artists such an opportunity to work on this last minute, turned ongoing, campaign. Located on the infamous Walton Street in Chicago, such window rentals [shared by those as Chanel] have not become available for decades. "The ad is doing very well- and getting great feedback," confirmed Drake's Palm Court Manager, Shaun Rajah. 

Fabbri Furs couldn't have taken boutique space at 50 East Oak Street (approximately one block from the Drake hotel) at a better time! They are right across the street from the NEW Hermes Boutique at 25 East Oak & the NEW Barney's New York Chicago at 15 East Oak Street, while neighbors include stores like Prada, Harry Winston, Jimmy Choo, and the list goes on. As if this were not enough shopper's nirvana, the 900 North Shops and Water Tower Place are simply a skip away.

raw side angle of fabbri furs ad at drake
Unfortunately the team Asha put together on this project have since taken projects in other cities like New York City after the ad release, but everyone still shares the return exposure and benefits, even the now released model at that time.

Asha Spacek responds: "I am always looking to develop and build our UR Artists Division as Chicago has such amazing talent that simply need to discover their niche, grooming from schooling into business reality, and chance- they can do it, if someone will let them! I decide talent based on passion, will, and the ability to take direction. It's not always the resume that speaks to me, but the vision behind their talent; their yearning (not desperation)  for growth. 
Usually I am contracted for like opportunities due to my built- sometimes pushy- {she laughs} relationships created with my clients- usually by referral, or by them seeing something out there, that we have done. I am a one-on-one type of person, and businesses miss that these days. If clients need to call me at 10pm to remind me of their idea or concern, in order to feel better, I let them. I don't put them through to 5 people and 10 voicemails- I take full responsibility from start to finish, so whoever I insert along the way, they trust that I have either faith, developed, or entrusted the team for hire already as if it were my personal brand. The UR team feels married to each project, and sometimes it takes counseling [even separation or divorce] to repair the relationship, lol; but in the end, there is mutual loyalty, respect, and appreciation of opportunity for all."

Fabbri has since branded themselves as a creatively unique furrier, in which the boutique and its local and international designers have impressed their high profile clientele. As young entrepreneurs, owners Sergio & Brian, along with Asha share very similar business practices in being innovative yet personable, and despite being boutique companies, project superlative expectations while maintaining qualified inner circles of a big company. Neither are afraid to take risks- even at their own expense- to save long term brand imagery and quality service to its clients. UR SuperModels and Fabbri Furs are in discussion for future projects. The same campaign can now be seen on the website's homepage as well. Asha's specific roles in the campaign were producer, creative director, art director, and stylist-

about the drake (source: wikipedia):

The Drake was one of just two United States hotels that were owned by Hilton International (which owns the Hilton brand outside the United States). In 2006, Hilton Hotels Corporation acquired Hilton International, and The Drake became part of the Hilton Hotels Corporation and The Hilton Family of Hotels.

Notable visitors

The Drake has been frequented by many heads of state, assorted celebrities, international personalities and members of the European aristocracy, some as long-term residents. Notable guests have included Winston Churchill, Prince Charles and Diana, Princess of Wales (albeit 19 years apart), Elizabeth Taylor, Judy Garland, Hugh Hefner, Owe Lundberg, Frank Sinatra, the Marchese and Marchesa Chiaramonte-Ragusa. Prince Felix Yusupov, and Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko. Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe carved their initials into the wooden bar of the Cape Cod Room.[5] Diana, Princess of Wales stayed at the Drake Hotel during her only visit to Chicago in 1996, one year before her death. (from drake website): Since the 1920s, The Drake has inspired more legendary acclaim than any hotel in the country. This historic property affords guests easy access to the city's most exclusive shopping, nightlife, and dining.  read more about the history of the drake here:

UR SuperModels Gina Appears on, "WINDY CITY LIVE" Show!

behind scenes recent fcm photo shoot

October 13, 2011- Celebrating her new look, UR SuperModels Glamour/Print/Fashion Lifestyle model Gina Alva, appeared on today's 'Windy City Live,' as a costumed nurse, to bring glee to host, Ryan Chiaverini, recovering from hip surgery. Windy City Live took the slot of, 'The Oprah Winfrey Show.'

Alva appears in the show's opening (on the left) in the video below! Gina has always had such amazing in-person and on-camera charisma, mixed with high end glam- she lights up a room.

"OMG, EVERYONE loves Gina's bubbly personality, artistic director of URSM Asha Spacek blushes. How can you not? She walks into a room [usually in Gucci or Louboutin, and let's not omit killer abs and legs] and lights it up; she is also very funny. She always gives our clients 200%; her loyalty is priceless, and she always looks fabulous! Modeling, luxury, commitment, and business, are part of her everyday lifestyle. She is also an entrepreneur [owner of Gina Marie Hair, a high end hair extension company]- she is very smart, and we are honored she says she will be managed by UR SuperModels as long as we will have her! She has been a talent of ours over 2 years, and we love her- I wish more models had her personality and appreciation of building a brand image."

See Gina from 5:29 to 7:24 on the segment here. Notice how without breaking character, she still manages to be conscience of her angles, posture, and gravitating poise:

UR SuperModels Support Asha Spacek in Winning "Outstanding Fashion & Business Award"

see videos and images below from event

2nd Annual Outstanding Business & Fashion Awards Presented by Red Carpet Concierge of Chicago, hosted at the 400,000 square foot Grossinger Auto Plex on September 25, 2011 awarded Asha Spacek, Artistic Director & Founder of UR SuperModels. 

The 'Contributing to Outstanding Business Ethics & Achievements Award' named her for her "It Happens with Asha" business ethic and her achievement in unique fashion production- specifically the 10 model video window and print ad campaign in the window of Mali Jewelry at 204 North Michigan Avenue. Spacek fully produced, directed, and styled the campaign over a year ago with unfortunately some models and artists not still around to share in this honor. 

Asha chooses to speak openly about what this means to her:
"Success does not happen over night, Asha replies, however, many younger people think life happens as it does on reality television! Even prior to this award, I suppose [on this project] giving an opportunity to artists/models to see their work 24/7 as you walk, drive, bus, and taxi by on a major tourist street in Chicago, across from a major news station, our city's business district, and even next to Starbuck's for talent that not even 6 months prior knew what a portfolio was [as it was non-existent] still isn't enough! No matter how much you invest personally -with the freedom of the internet sometimes- you can be on top today and thrown under the bus tomorrow, lol, so to have Sandy from Red Carpet still remember AND rave about seeing the images from across the street, really touched me. She has seen a lot in this city, not to mention world wide, so I know she was not blowing smoke. I am grateful- I am adjusting to compliments in an industry filled with ridicule- but I LOVE IT- I will die with fashion and style being my life! Overall I am respected for what I do, but of course a few things will always bother you. If I gave up a husband for it, you know I won't let naysayers or competitive copiers get in my way, lol. I am speaking out finally- openly- because I want future women...young girls to understand adversity never means failure; it means due triumph, as mentioned in the bible."

See one of Asha's interviews (1:24-1:53) with UR SuperModels by her side, showcasing client Mali Jewelry & Thierry Roger Courtier.
