A few months ago, Toronto stylist and former Modelresource contributor Tristan Tran came up with the idea to spotlight Toronto's new crop of models. Of course, modelresource loved the idea and asked Tristan to build a project team.

After a while of determining "how" and "who" Tristan came up with "Hou." David Hou -- one of Toronto's most respected and well-liked fashion photographers -- consented to open his studio and undertake this massive venture.

In a huge one-day blitz, 56 models from Toronto's top editorial agencies worked with seven hair and makeup artists, one stylist, one styling assistant, three set assistants and myself in the magic of Mr. Hou's world.

The theme was New Releases; a throwback to the day of the vinyl LP displays showing the hottest new acts.

Plans to repeat the feat in 2006 are already in the works. In the meantime, modelresource would like to extend an enormous amount of appreciation to the agencies for pulling this together in such a short time, to the models that sat patiently through a very long day, and of course to everyone that worked on set to bring this remarkable achievement to life.
