In addition to her work with Nine West, Tyra is busy developing the first model-based theme park: Modelland. She's written a young adult novel with the same title and has been developing the theme park based upon her love for Disney. Tyra is a groundbreaker who never turns down a challenge and fans are thrilled to see her vision for Modelland come to fruition.
Speaking to WWD, Tyra Banks explained the vision behind Modelland and answered the question what was on her bucket list. Tyra stated the following.
"Modelland is what’s on my bucket list. When I’m no longer here, I want young people to come to Modelland and not know who Tyra Banks was. I want to mean nothing to that kid and everything to their grandparents. That’s my dream.”
Modelland will be centered in Santa Monica's Place mall and will feature a shopping complex as well as be an experience where those who attend will get a taste of what it's like to be a model. Modelland is expected to span 21,000 square feet and is set to open before the end of 2019. There will be ticketed activities and attractions but those who want to visit and shop will be able to do so for free. What do you think about Tyra's newest adventures? Are you looking forward to Modelland's opening?
