About Me

Please contact me if you want to work together! I love doing photo shoots! Here is some information about me :I was trained as a model for many years, first signing with Wilhelmina in Pennsylvania and then working with Wilhelmina throughout New York & Miami as well as many other modeling agencies. I did a bunch of shows with all different agencies including Elite Model Management, One model, Bella models, New York Model Management and many others. I began walking for many designers & made many connections through networking at the shows I was doing. I then met Al Mason a man who ran this company called News Butterfly Television and he signed me on to work for NBC, CBS, ABC & News Butterfly to be a TV anchor to host my own TV shows on NBC news channel 4, in NYC taxi cabs on Time Square billboards as well as many other outlets. During Mercedes-Benz Fashion weeks I would work months in advance prepping to call all of these designers so we could schedule interviews for behind the scenes footage at their shows. This was very exciting getting to know the ins and outs of the industry and paved my way into the fashion industry. I then went on to become a freelance stylist & worked with many different celebrities on their wardrobes. I also worked in many stores throughout New York City and networked with many amazing people who were in fashion, television, actors, actresses, singers, models, professional athletes; and also met many people who were in the entertainment world in other aspects. As this began to grow I decided to figure out a way to put this all together and told Al I wanted to start doing my own charity events for non-profit fundraisers. Al then introduced me to many Ambassadors of the United Nations and I began to have a love for philanthropy and helping the environment. I then got signed on as a Model to Jorgen Jorgensen who was the CEO of Heartland Model Management. This company was based throughout the US & worldwide. Jorgen was originally from Malmo, Sweden but knew the ins and outs of all of the ways to walk the catwalk. We had classes every Sunday with our agency to show us how to walk for all these different designers from around the world. I began walking for many designers and did a lot of charity events. One of our biggest events was for DIYA save the children where we had many amazing people from around the world at the event to help out the charity and raise money for kids in India specifically. Another awesome charity event we did was The American Heart Association Walk. One of my clients and dear friends Cynthia Flood who runs the Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation of America also has a big show every year with many famous designers and had asked me to be part of her show. I have done many editorial shoots & have been featured in a couple of magazines. I have also been on Good Morning America. I became very good friends with Hilary Flowers who did a bunch of fashion shows for fashion week & we became business partners under Al Mason's company to get clients on all of these different media outlets. Hillary Also ran a bunch of fashion shows for many designers that I was a part of & it was so much fun meeting new people and networking with all of these great designers who all had different approaches to their designs. It's amazing how many people are out there trying to get their foot in the door in the fashion industry and how many talented and creative designers there are that aren't noticed enough but should be. I learned this when working at very high-end fashion houses to working with private labels. I grew up owning a store with my mother and sister in our house so fashion was always a huge love of mine & having my mother and some other family members to look up to as models; I knew that was the right direction for me to go in. I then got interested in singing and am working on a new album with some amazing producers in the industry as well as singers who I have become great friends with. I was so lucky to have worked with these great producers on my first single "I Can't Help Myself" copyrights under Mitch Moses Productions. These producers not only worked with the likes of David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Lenny Kravitz & the Beatles but they took a song from the 80s that they had the copyrights to and recreated it just for me. That was something so special and dear to my heart. Kevin Mccray also introduced me to many fashion designers. I met Kevin through a bunch of friends when I was working with hot 97 at the age of 19. I was the CEO of a company called Double L Management where we managed up and coming artists, my business partner at the time was the Vice President of Hot 97 and I began learning all about the music industry and got to meet so many cool people doing that. My sister was also working for Hot 97 at that time & now has her own radio podcast in Boston that I was lucky to be a part of & that's when I first debuted the song & sang it live for the radio station in Boston. My sister Jaclyn Zukerman now owns her own magazine called @NextonSceneMagazine where she works with many celebrities and up and coming artists and creatives. We always do big fashion shows twice a year for her magazine. I am now creating my first online store where you can buy and shop till you drop! It will be right here on this website to buy the items & you can buy them from me directly or through my posh mark account that is under the name @lzukerman. All of my personal styles are going to go into this store so that everyone can get a feel for what fashion is really about. I will then go on to help you put styles together and I can become your personal stylist! I can be reached by phone or email as well as through my Instagram @lzukerman. I also wanted to say that my mother wrote an amazing book that every female even male should purchase it is called "Lessons for an Urban Goddess" the second book is called "The Urban Goddess Lesson." You can purchase these books through Amazon or on Kindle. They are life changing pieces of material! There are so many awesome designers, actresses & singers that I have worked with and continue to work with because you build relationships with these people. They know what your dreams and aspirations are & they were once in your shoes so they understand and they want to help you. If you really push yourself you can be anything you want to be, you just have to know what you want and go for it. I now have my own Instagram blog where I post pictures of different styles I wear daily to help inspire others to dress to impress. You can find me on Instagram @lzukerman -real page- where I try to keep it updated daily with many inspiring outfits. These are outfits that I wear out with friends & to events. I always am complimented on my style so I thought why not create a blog where I can help not only my friends but all young women to look & feel their best & be the best them that they can be. My girlfriends also always ask me for advice on how to dress & I say where are you going? what is it for? & how do you want to be perceived? Then I tell them exactly what they should wear for the special occasion. I always get great feedback afterward that they got so many compliments on their outfits & that always makes me feel good! I as well as my mother and sisters and family, in general, are all very big on female empowerment. We strive to be our best selves & to present to the world the best person you can be. To believe is to achieve & to dream it you have to do it. I have some great advice from one of my best friends who always said, whatever it is you're doing, always give it your best. You never know where that could take you & you always want to present your best self to the world. Not only for you but to show others that you can and are doing what you were made to do. Acting is something that I love doing and eventually, I would like to start acting more, I just recently made my second song & first song off of my first album coming out summer of 2017 called " Listen to Me " This will be an amazing album!! you can locate the first song before it hits stores worldwide at www.reverbnation.com/lauraz or check out and follow my Instagram page at www.instagram.com/lzukerman
