Crystal Bailey and Daishawn Franklin founded WALK in 2009 in an effort to give local aspiring models and designers the chance to shine. WALK strives to provide the perfect platform to the needs of many locally based models, designers, store owners and the Michigan fashion community. WALK is the largest fashion show in the midwest, in Lansing and Detroit held bi-annually. Shows have been held in iconic locations across the state, including the Charles H. Wright Museum, Detroit Opera House and the Detroit Rooster Tail.

“We just wanted to provide a platform for local talent to be showcased across the world,” Franklin said. “You don’t have to go to New York to see a fashion show. It’s right here, right now, and that’s what WALK is all about.”

I have personally been blessed to have the opportunity to work alongside Bailey and Franklin as an intern, who have become my family.

Bailee Dai Agency was founded in April 2013 launching a model behavior clinic, 7 Basic Guidelines on Building a Successful Modeling Career.

The event was hosted by Naima Mora, model and author of the book “Model Behavior”.

Models had the opportunity for a hands on professional mini photo shoot, which they received two photos for their portfolio. They had a personal portfolio review with Mora and discussed strengths and weaknesses of their current portfolio. Mora provided basic runway modeling tips and gave demonstrations. All models who attended the clinic also received a autographed copy of “Model Behavior”.
