Myka Dunkle began her modeling career in 1996 when she accepted an offer by Click Model Management in New York City. She was fifteen years old when she relocated to NYC permanently. By the following fall, the agency representing Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, Women Model Management, offered to represent Myka. She was the agency's youngest model, and the expertise and vision of her agents coupled with Myka's background in classical dance were essential to the early success of her international career.
In the years following, Myka Dunkle was represented in cities around the world, including Paris, London, Milan, Tokyo, Sydney, Madrid, Hamburg, Seoul, and Los Angeles. Her career was primarily focused in editorial print, fashion advertising, and both the pret-a-porter and haute couture fashion shows in New York and Europe. Myka was photographed by some of the most celebrated fashion photographers of the 20th century, including Arthur Elgort, Helmut Newton, Steven Meisel, Bruce Weber, Ellen von Unwerth and Steven Klein. Her worldwide campaigns include Dolce and Gabbana's D&G, Blue Marine, Ferre, Roberto Cavalli, Catherine Hamnett, and the Tommy Hilfiger and Old Navy commercials, to name a few. Since 1996, she has worked and traveled in seventeen countries.
In 2004, Myka Dunkle turned her attention to the study of international affairs and economics. Currently, she is writing her honors thesis on democracy and Islam in Central Asia, while interning for a non-profit, international women's human rights fund. She will complete her Bachelor of Arts and Sciences degree in the spring of 2008.
