Mario Tricoci’s "Mario, Make Me a Model" contest, orchestrated by Chicago salon Mario Tricoci named five finalists last Tuesday from a group of 21 semifinalists, starting from an original pool of 400.
"This means everything. I have wanted to be a model my whole life," said Ursula Alice Dabrowska of Vernon Hills, breaking down with joy after she was selected.
The five Chicago-area women have earned a model makeover from Mario Tricoci Hair Salons, runway instruction by Ford Models, personal training with Equinox Fitness Clubs and a spot in a fashion advertorial spread photographed by Matt Ferguson for Chicago magazine. They also will be considered for a contract with Ford Models and a Tricoci trend photo shoot.
The five will walk the runway in the "Dress Code" fashion show October 3, Fashion Focus Chicago. One amodel will be chosen that night to receive a five-night trip for two to Mexico, among other prizes.
