Tessa - Tessa started out as a mannequin intern with Diane Von Furstenberg when the store first opened in the Meatpacking District in 2007. She just finished modeling school & saw a posting on the job board, interviewed and started the next day. She was a very quick study and when her internship was over DVF offered her a permanent position. This display gave her the chance to pay it forward as mentor to a new mannequin named Sheri.
Sheri - Sheri was recommended to DVF by an agency known for its uncanny ability to match up mannequins with designers that suited each other in the best possible way. She was lucky (and she knew it) that Tessa was assigned as her mentor. This display was her first so Tessa took the front position giving Sheri a chance to be inconspicuous while watching and learning the poses that are the DVF signature.
