PIKEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) — Steadfast Creative Arts Productions (SCAP), located in Williamson, W.Va., brings fashion from New York Fashion Week to young models in Eastern Kentucky and Southwest Virginia.

“A lot of people here, they’re beautiful, but they don’t know it and I see the need for them to empower themselves and be able to create something,” said Grace Brucal, owner of SCAP. “They always say there’s nothing here, but how about creating something?”

Its mission is to bring high-profile models as well as bring local models to New York Fashion Week, like in previous years.

“Not many people can afford to go to New York because it’s expensive, so we want to bring New York to the mountains,” Brucal said.

The goal is to give young Appalachian women a platform to begin their modeling careers, regardless of background.

“I come from a place where I can ride my ATV all day and I can rip it in the mud, I can go hunting,” said Miss Teen West Virginia Destiny Ellis, “and I can be that girl too. girly and getting out of my comfort zone and wearing high heels.

Brucal hopes the program will help build hope and self-confidence by placing young models on the most prestigious catwalks.

“If you’re afraid to do it, sometimes it’s good to step out of your comfort zone because the end result could be amazing or amazing,” said Little Miss International Kaitlyn Brucal.

Brucal said they are planning a fashion show in Kentucky or nearby West Virginia very soon and are always looking for new models.
