On Monday, August 18, family, friends, media and fashion lovers gathered at Whitney Thomas Studio in Philadelphia to celebrate the presence of a booming talent in the fashion industry, Miss Raelia Lewis.
After trying out several times and never giving up, the 22-year-old statuesque Philly native finally landed a slot as a finalist in this season’s America’s Next Top Model competition. She joins 13 other aspiring models for Cycle 21 Guys|Girls. A party was held in her honor to commemorate the premiere of the new ANTM season.
Among the guests in attendance were Tweety Elitou of Younghipchic, Philly’s Phinest 2013 inductee and Ebony Magazine Correspondent Syreeta Martin, Philly 360 Blogger Kharisma Mcllwaine, Philly Phinest 2013 inductee and Celebrity Fashion Designer Mah-jing Wong, America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20 contestant Cory Wade Hindorff and more!
