One-Woman Fashion Show

Downtown's BoMA -- formerly known as the Bar of Modern Art -- is a church-turned-event-venue that hosts many of the city's biggest and best fashion shows. But it boasts more than just a sanctuary ideal for a catwalk. So we found one spectacular model, Nicolene Schwartz, and several fabulous spring looks, and then spent a day playing in BoMA's many artsy spaces. The result is a fashion spread we're sure you'll enjoy. Here's a look at its making, through the lens of photographer Jodi Miller.

Nicolene Schwartz is a transplant form New York City who modeled for Elite before moving to Columbus. She's a former state champion gymnast who has degrees in philosophy and creative writing and is fluent in Italian. She bartends at the Rossi in the Short North.

Tim Maurer, owner of Mukha Cosmetics and Medi-Spa in the Short North, is a classically trained flautist who studied with the famed musician James Galway.
