BRASH! Magazine Interviews No Pay No Runway®‘s CEO/Founder, Carnell Jones. A Model Movement Giving Voices and Raising Awareness for the Beauties of the Catwalk

No Pay No Runway Interview - BRASH! Magazine Blog

No Pay No Runway® was formed to bring awareness to all models who may have found themselves being treated unfairly or manipulated into working for Free.

Did you know that every time a model hits the runway during your favorite fashion event, she walks away with experience, minimum exposure, and weeks of countless emails/inquiries for pictures to add to the portfolio. Many are unaware of the time investments given in the industry from models who are looking to make their own mark. Unfortunately, those opportunities to start and thrive as a working model are very few.

No Pay No Runway® is standing up to be that voice. Giving models a platform to advise and speak out against designers, fashion production companies, and other brands utilizing their talents for events to boost their company’s profiles, and leaving the models with nothing.

BRASH! Magazine reached out to the founder of No Pay No Runway®, Carnell Jones, for more details on the movement and how models can get involved!

BRASH! What is the overall mission for the movement? Our mission is to give every model a voice to speak out against free labor in the fashion industry, and to eventually get them the wages they deserve.

BRASH! Why do you feel that models accepted the terms of unpaid gigs and exposure in order to hit the runway? Many models accept the terms of unpaid gigs and exposure in the beginning because most of the producers and designers are selling them false hope and dreams. For a young model to hear “If you walk for free, you will get great exposure and you will eventually become the next modeling star” is a rather soft spot for most models. The average model is between 15 & 25 years of age, so when they hear “You will become famous one day”, they tend to put their guards down and accept anything.

About Alexa Ferr
R&B/Pop artist Alexa Ferr is no stranger to the music industry. A bonafide triple threat, Alexa discovered her love for the arts performing at local singing competitions and as a dancer gaining 8 years of experience in jazz, tap, ballet, hip-hop and contemporary dance.

Alexa’s career began in 2011 with the release of her first single, “Fell” via Universal Music Group/Dauman Music. The single featured Disney star Matthew “Mdot” Finley, who was also featured in Camp Rock 2. Following the release of “Fell”, Alexa worked with a multitude of producers throughout 2012, including production duo The Invaders who helped the then 17-year-old discover her sound as an artist. In 2013, the Toronto native moved to Los Angeles and released her debut EP ‘Lipstick On The Glass’, introducing fans and media outlets to the “Rugged Pop” sound.

In 2015, Alexa began experimenting with her sound, leaving the “Rugged Pop” sound behind for a sound rooted in Urban Pop. Working with Th3ory of The Penhouse, Alexa wrote and recorded a number of songs including 2016’s “Hit The Switch”, co-written by Travis Bruce. “Hit The Switch” is one of Alexa’s most successful songs with over 30,000 Soundcloud streams to date. The song is featured in the upcoming indie film, FLOAT, directed by Johnny Dutch, marking Alexa’s first film feature. In 2016, Alexa also found success behind-the-scenes as a songwriter, co-writing Moka Blast’s single “Vida Loca”, which features DreamKayris and The Voice Brasil’s Nikki.

Throughout 2017 and 2018, Alexa took pride in solo-songwriting, while working with many producers, continuing to create music on her own terms. In April 2019, Alexa released the single “Can’t Help Myself”, produced by Til December. “Can’t Help Myself” showcases the evolution of Alexa’s artistry as an Urban Popstar, and as a songwriter, as she continues to build her path in the music industry.

Alexa is working with a variety of producers on new music which will be released throughout 2019.

Fire in the Visual | “Heart on Fire” Music Video by MORRISON

Electro-Rock Artist, Megan Morrison Releases Official Music Video for “Heart on Fire”

Miami-based rock/pop artist Megan Morrison (aka MORRISON) releases the music video to her incendiary new single, “Heart on Fire,” exclusively on Live In Limbo!

electro rock artist, morrison

I really wanted to portray this in the video by showing both the dark and light sides of myself. You have the fire and dark mood vs. the beautiful green landscape. In the bridge section of the song, you hear two sets of lyrics overlapping. One side reflects the heartbreak and pain and the other, freedom and rebirth. At the very end of the video, you see me smile and lift my arms to the sky in celebration of a new life. – MORRISON

The single is the first release from Morrison’s debut solo EP, Appetite for Freedom, set to fire off in Spring 2019.
