What Our AFA Models are Saying‌ LINZY ANNA I've loved getting to know those in the local fashion industry and have been given multiple opportunities through AFA to meet and connect with industry experts.

VERRONICA MITCHELL AFA has given me a platform in Alabama to continue to do what I truly love as a military spouse. It has also afforded me the opportunity to continue to refine my skills to be better than I was before. I can not thank all the volunteers enough for their self less service and dedication. Many thanks and many blessings.

DELEXIS ROACH Alabama Fashion Alliance has really helped to give me that boost I needed to really believe in myself and my dreams of being a model. I have wanted to get into the industry for so long but being in a small town in Alabama, the modeling world is not the easiest to get into without major traveling. I feel that it was faith that lead me to this amazing group of people. I have been with AFA for about 5 or 6 months and within that time my attitude has changed and my outlook on my dreams has to. I no longer feel like it's impossible. I feel like with hard work and dedication I can make it where I want to be. Thank you to all the members of Alabama Fashion Alliance that provide us with this great opportunity! BELLA SCHNEIDER AFA has helped me step out of my comfort zone and take risk modeling clothes I thought I could never wear. Also showed me that hair and makeup can change your look.
