Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

The Ohio Union


Meet Kinley...


BuckeyeThon is excited for the Fashion Show and so are the BuckeyeThon kids. Kinley has previously been part of BuckeyeThon's Fashion Show, and we are all looking forward to see her on the runway again! Read as Kinley reflects on her experiences as a model and her excitement for this year's fashion show, as well as her favorite latest fashion trends.


"It’s almost time for the BuckeyeThon Fashion Show! I’m so excited to get up on the runway again! I have been involved in over 10 Fashion Shows though my modeling agency and Cancer Awareness groups and each one is special to me. I have even rocked the runway with LeBron James and team mates of the Columbus Blue Jackets (Brandon Dubinsky). Most recently I had the opportunity to sport a custom made dress by Columbus College of Art & Design student in the Senior Fashion Show as well as participate in the Columbus Bridal Fashion Show.


Being a model, you could say I love fashion. I currently am a Fit Model for Justice so I am drawn to their clothes. I enjoy shopping their store and finding the clothes that I got a chance to try on before they came out in the store. I also like to shop at Abercrombie Kids, TJ Maxx, H & M and more. I like to find a good bargain; my mom taught me that!




My favorite clothes are whatever the latest trend is and anything that contains sparkles. I love the color pink and love to accessorize. You will always find me with a bow in my hair as I am pretty much a girly-girl. I always have my nails painted up pretty too! In the evenings, I’m always in my yoga pants, shorts, tanks and tees as I’m at the gym 3 nights a week practicing competitive cheer or at softball practice in the spring.


I’m looking forward to the BuckeyeThon Fashion Show so I can show my Buckeye pride, raise awareness for Pediatric Cancer, raise funds for BuckeyeThon and Nationwide Children’s Hospital and maybe even do a little Whip/Nae Nae dance too (it’s my favorite)! I can’t wait to see you all there!"
