TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) Step-sisters Jaida Blessing and Jaylin Williamson have always been there for each other, especially when it comes to the latest trends.

"I've always wanted a person that I could really connect to in the fashion industry," Jaida said.

Jaida began modeling through an agency in Waco, but Jaylin remained supportive behind the scenes. However, when the opportunity of the New York Fashion week came about, Jaylin was given a suggestion.

"I was asked to try it and I was conflicted," Jaylin said.

"Jaida was like, 'I think you'd like it.' So, I went up and tried and the judge said, 'I like you.'"

Both were selected to model in one of the shows. They then flew to the big apple, prepped and then walked across the stage. Their mother, Summer Williamson, she couldn't be prouder.

"I was shaking and crying," she said.

"I was blown away by how beautiful they looked and how amazing their stage presence was."

For Jaylin, there was somethin about walking in the show that mattered more.

"I've been to one of her fashion shows before and she was by herself and she didn't talk with me and I finally got to feel what she felt," she said.

"It was really cool to bond over the fact that we really walked together!"
