Glam Monitor and Bustle covered the Model Alliance "Careers Beyond the Runway" event, organised by Áine and Model Alliance Founder and Executive Director, Sara Ziff. Held on March 5, 2015, the event was a great success with the panel speaking about their transition from modeling to new careers to a packed house. Panelists included Lisa Davies (nurse) , Monica Watkins (founder of Art In Motion), Paola Viola (WME in house counsel), Tara Stiles (founder of Strala Yoga) and career counsellor from Career Transition For Dancers, Lauren Gordon.
Áine learnt about the importance of sustainable fashion when she modelled for Suzy Amis Cameron's initiative "Red Dress Green Carpet" at an Academy Awards in event in 2011. She modelled the winning design made by fashion designer Samata Angel. The dress was made out of hemp silk that was harvested in an animal cruelty-free way, and organic chiffon that was dyed naturally. Read more about in this Vogue feature.
