Annual Tribute fashion show honors up-and-coming model who died in drowning

News

ST. LOUIS – Mother Model Management hosted their annual Tribute Fashion show Saturday at the City Foundry. This year’s show welcomed home more than 60 models who have walked runways and modeled for brands and magazines all over the world to honor a model who died this past summer.

Kara Wrice was a 16-year-old incoming junior at Webster Groves High School and a rising star on the volleyball team. She was just beginning to make her print in the fashion industry before she died in a drowning in the Meramac River in Castlewood Park in July. Both her immediate family and her fashion family at Mother Model refuse to let her legacy die with her. 

Mary Clark, co-owner of Mother Model, said, “Her life was so spirit filled and energetic and happy and the impact she had on our models specifically was significant.”

Hundreds of St. Louis creatives, photographers, fashion designers, and models gathered to honor Kara. Before the show began, Kara’s father Karl Wrice, presented Mother Model with a one thousand dollar check for the support they’ve shown since Kara’s passing. Her family also plans to start an annual $2500 scholarship fund for one graduating Webster Groves volleyball student on her behalf.
