Top Model 'Discovers' Xew Interest By Bernadine Morris C. J976.V. V. Times NEW YORK-She can swing down the runway like the best of the new-wave mannequins, but she has a sensitivity for fabrics and the way clothes move that gives her the aura of old-time models, the ones who looked remote and untouchable. The sophistication makes her seem older. , "When I was 13, people often thought I was 20." said Elena Engstrom, who is known by her first name, as the best Seventh Avenue models are. Engstrom is her aunt's name anyway. ·IWulfke." her father's name, proved too difficult for her to use professionally. "People called me 'whiskey' and 'wheezy.' " she said. But Elena has just formed a corporation to import and export fashion and other things and "Wulfke." is the name she's chosen for it, to differentiate her business life from her modeling activities. * * * : "MY FATHER is very happy about it," she said, pulling some of her fashion imports from a large straw basket that may also become part of her collection. .She's starting with denim skirts, the kind she herself wears when she's making the rounds of clients, which include Bonnie Cashin, Stephen Burrows and Bendel's Studio. ''They're either straight with a fly-front closing or they're flared, with indigo designs--square or numbers--printed on them. The skirts, like the baskets, are made in Haiti. ""I went to Haiti on a vacation last year because I d i d n ' t have time to go to Greece." she said. "Instead of resting. I niet up with some fashion people and spent the rest of the week putting on a fashion show with them." '. She designed a few skirts for her friends to keep their factories busy and when she returned to New York people started to ask her where she got them. · That's when she got the idea to import the styles, which Bendel's will have starting next month. She has her eye on some straw shoulder bags to fill out her line. At the same time, she's planning to export vitamins to Haiti, the same natural health variety she takes herself. ,-. » · « ^ANOTHER PROJECT is the establishment of a boutique in a new hotel that will open in Jacmel, a small town in Haiti, in October. She'll import clothes from the United States for this. ~The corporate Elena is not going to extinguish Elena the model. At 25, she figures she has a few more years left on the runway. ;:;"! really love clothes," she says. "Not fcshion all the time, but nice clothes. I'm Moping the business things fit in during the slow times in modeling.' 1 · Margaret Vaughan Chapman of Ravenswood feasted on cake on her second birthday Saturday, but instead of the customary birthday cake, it was the wedding cake at the reception following the marriage of her cousin, Judy Johnson, to Sam Mitchell Jackson.
