UR SuperModels Part of Parisian Cop Copine Editorial

May 1, 2011-COP COPINE PARIS opened its newest American location behind their first store in San Francisco's Union Square. This Chicago flagship opened this Spring 2011 inhabiting the vacant J. Mendel space across the street from Bloomingdale's on North Michigan Avenue.

Cop.Copine is a Parisian women's clothing company who is known for their relevant styles at accessible price points. The company has stores in over nineteen countries around the world and offers bold prints original cuts, and occasional asymmetry. The clothing is casual while still paying attention to a feminine shape.

Then they pull out the show stopper - shoulder jewelry. Since its debut on the Paris runways, apparently Cop.Copine has been selling so much of it that the artisan who makes the shoulder jewelry in Paris is having a difficult time keeping up with demand.

From UR SuperModels Artistic Director Asha Spacek, "We were so honored when FCM invited us to submit models for this editorial. It had been awhile since the mag has taken interest in local talent OR fashion, so it was great to reconnect!" Asha accompanied the models to their fitting as new face junior models Mandi and Alex prepared for one of their biggest shoots to date. This is a unique gesture Asha sometimes offers to new models, which is not very common of managers/agents, but she wants both models and parents to be comfortable and confident in what can be a scary and adventurous industry; especially for projects outside the normal "commercial" related opportunities usually provided in the Chicago market. Ms. Spacek also introduced one of the UR Artists Divisions new 'test' stylists Brianna to the boutique and magazine being used for the shoot.

Asha continues, "I don't mind sharing opportunities with our new talent in training. I can't style, direct, brand, oversee booking managers, and seek new business opportunities if I try and maintain control over everything- I've tried this way, and it is exhausting, haha. So long as the artists don't officially heist our contacts [as some in past time], growth equals more success for the company, AND I can see my bed more. It's a win/win- everyone did a SUPERB job and we appreciate the opportunity with such a big brand. The boutique managers were fun and engaging to myself and the models." -interview with Asha for post by junior admin
