Move over Tyra, bankers are hitting the runway.

Gwen Greene, v.p. at JPMorgan Securities, and Melanie Schnoll Begun, managing director and head of Morgan Stanley wealth management's philanthropy management group, modeled Carrie Hammer's designs for New York Fashion Week Thursday, reports The Wall Street Journal. Hammer opts to use "role models" instead of runway models to show off her fall work-wear collection. Other Hammer models have included CEO, activists, Olympic athletes, and a United Nations advisor.

“I’m in the show because Carrie Hammer is a rock star and is showing the fashion scene that women can ‘model’ their power, influence, leadership and brains,” Ms. Schnoll Begun said in a statement before the show.

More than 100 people filed into the Mercedes Benz showroom on 11th Avenue in Manhattan to watch the women.

Hammer launched her brand in 2012.
