Model Etiquette 101: Five Tips to Models when borrowing a designer’s garment(s) for a personal photoshoot, event, or appearance. It is extremely important that you return the items cleaned. Always dry clean your items. Of course ask the designer first to ensure the garment will not get ruined when dry cleaned, they may have their own preferences or personal cleaners. If they use their own cleaners, then give the estimated dollar amount to clean the garment. If using your own cleaners go to a trusted dry cleaners that you have used before. And if you are unsure get one of your personal items cleaned first. Also, make sure to return items in a timely fashion. Designers dislike waiting forever to receive their items back, remember they have shows, rental clients, and shoots so they need their outfits. Also, when wearing their garment to an event/shoot be sure to give photo credit to the designer. Lastly, give a thank you card when you return the garment (s). It takes a lot of heart and soul to create this special piece of clothing not to mention a lot of trust to allow a model to use it. xoxo, Sherrie Gearheart
In Observance of Asian Heritage Month
Designer Spotlight: Satoko Mizuno
Satoko Mizuno is one of my absolute favorite designers based here in Chicago. Her garments are fitted perfectly for a woman’s shape, very durable, and ready to wear for everyday wear while still feeling beautiful and work ready. Her garments are sophisticated. I wore this when running around coordinating our biggest Model Boot Camp event to date. I had over 30 models to manage. I did not have my hair or makeup done because I was waiting for the H/mua team from Steven Papageorge Hair Academy to work on me after the other models. Everyone loves Satoko’s dresses. It doesn’t matter where I wear her garments to, whether its the supermarket, work place,at a special appearance, or walking to my car, I am always stopped and asked, “OMG who designed that? And where did you buy that.” My answer: Satoko Mizuno. I hope you like her designs as much as I do.
xoxo, Sherrie Gearheart

On April 20th, Nicole Harrington received the Illinois Governors Volunteer Service Award. Governor Rauner was to present the award but he was not able to make it and Scott McFarland Executive Director of Serve Illinois presented it to Miss Harrington.
Nicole was chosen out of over 200 nominees. Two of the members that reviewed all of the nominations came up to her after the ceremony and told her in all the years that they have been reviewing the nominations they have never seen any young person do as much as she has for her age. They told her that they can’t wait to see where she goes and they are sure they will hear about her again in the future.
Nicole Harrington is a sophomore at St Joseph Catholic Academy High School and she is the founder of an anti-bullying program called STAR (Stop, Think, And React). She understands first hand that bullying is a big problem in our society and at the young age of 11 she created STAR to help children know what to do if they witness a bullying situation. Nicole has delivered a number of speeches to all ages promoting her STAR program and has partnered with Live Out Loud Charity for suicide prevention. Partnering with LOLC has provided more opportunity for Nicole to tell her story and promote STAR by speaking at fashion show fund raisers, schools, and to Girl Scout troops. She continues to reach people of all ages by promoting her program and hopes to someday put a stop to bullying. Nicole has been part of the Live Out Loud Charity, Leadership Academy, since 2013 and is moving into mentoring other young girls to become leaders in the stop bullying campaign, STAR.
When Nicole is not promoting her STAR program or completing her school studies you can find her volunteering her time at many different organizations. Nicole has volunteered over 350 hours of her time. Within the past year she has volunteered at local community events, Relay for Life, Northern Illinois Food Bank, and American Heart Association events to name a few. A recent event that she organized was making blankets for the local cancer research hospital. She collected donations to raise money for fabric, organized a group to get together and make blankets, and delivered 11 blankets to the hospital to keep cancer patients warm while they are receiving treatment.
Nicole recently competed in Pure American Pageant and won the title of National Young Miss. She plans to use her title to help promote her program STAR and provide more opportunity to connect with other volunteer organizations.
Tiara Magazine and Live Out Loud Charity are proud of Nicole Harrington and her mother Sandy Harrington for their countless hours of volunteer effort to help others and make this world a better place.
