NEW YORK, July 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wilhelmina International, Inc. (Nasdaq:WHLM) ("Wilhelmina Models"): one of the most prominent talent and model management agencies in the world, has officially released its Men's S/S '16 Show Package for New York Fashion Week's first annual men's shows. Wilhelmina takes it to another level this season with a unique short film featuring male models transforming into werewolves, showcasing the 'Wolf Pack' brand the agency has created for its image division. "The Wilhelmina Wolf Pack has been our signature for the image division in New York City for two seasons now," states Taylor Hendrich, Director of the Men's Board at Wilhelmina. "It represents our ferocious and truly incredible talent roster who we proudly represent." He continues, "With New York's first ever Men's Fashion Week upon us, we wanted to make a statement that we are here." The S/S '16 Show Package video, directed by Julian R R and Marco Torres, deliberately takes the sexy wolf-pack idea similar to Twilight and MTV's Teen Wolf. The Wilhelmina models featured, including: Chris Bunn, Chris Moore, Eli Hall, Francisco Peralta, William Moncada and Liam Vandiar, paint their naked torsos and faces with their hands, and with the help of Eddy Bogaert's neon art, the video takes a party-rave twist. "For the first annual NYFW Men's S/S '16, we wanted to showcase our Wilhelmina talent in an innovative and creative way," says Alex Vaickus, CEO of Wilhelmina. "We never do anything ordinary and this film is a perfect example of that."
