Casting call for Dayton Fashion Week models

Dec '11
February 25, 2012 local men and women will be given the chance to participate in the leading fashion event in Dayton. It's Dayton Fashion Week's mission to shed more light on the talent that we have in the Miami Valley that is why the creators of the event will be hosting a casting for the top undiscovered models in the area.

The model call is an opportunity for aspiring models to have a chance to grace the runway at this premiere fashion event. “We are showcasing the next generation of designers and it only makes sense to support them with the next generation of models,” said Junda Morris-Kennedy, Executive Director of Dayton Fashion Week.

Kyle Haggerty, MTV Made Coach and owner of K-2 Studios had this to say about the upcoming casting call, “I know talent when I see it. “You either have it or you don't. It's that simple,” Haggerty, is the Executive Producer of Dayton Fashion Week. Haggerty will be bringing to this event his wisdom and knowledge as the runway coach for Dayton Fashion Week.

The casting call will be held on Saturday February 25 at Delish Cafe -139 N. Main Street Downtown Dayton, OH 45402 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m- models must arrive by 10am. Female model requirements include: (without shoes) minimum height of 5'8”, size 2-4, and mature models are welcome.

Women must bring 3” heels and dress runway ready including full hair and makeup. Male model requirements: must be attractive, slender muscular tone, and (without shoes) minimum of 5'10”. Men should also arrive fashionably dressed. All models must be a minimum of 15 years of age. Participants under 18yrs. of age must have a parent or legal guardian present.

All participants must bring with them, two photos, one full body and head shot along with their measurements and contact information attached to the back. Those who have previous modeling experience please bring a resume listing all experience and a portfolio. Professional pictures are not required.

Dayton Fashion Week mission is to bridge the gap between national and international designers, premier retailers and prestige fashion media. The goal is to gain global exposure for Dayton's emerging Fashion industry.

The event will set a new standard in terms of high-quality, New York-style runway shows complete with VIP seating, credentialed media access, and upscale promotional and after-parties that will attract thousands. Dayton Fashion Week is also giving back to the community by donating some of the proceeds from the event to two local charities- Hospice of Dayton and Clothes That Work.
