Tracee Dundas Fashion Stylist
As New Orleans Fashion Week approaches (September 17-23), the search for the fiercest models to slay the runway is set to take place. The one-day open casting call is seeking female models 5’7” and taller; and male models 5’11” and taller. While experience is helpful, it isn’t a prerequisite or necessary. It’s about having an amazing walk, great stage presence, confidence and a certain “je ne sais” that brings the fashions to life on the runway. The seven-day fashion fete will showcase models draped in fashions from designers from the gulf coast region and beyond. Since 2011 New Orleans Fashion Week has provided a platform for designers to showcase their collections and bringing national attention and recognition to the amazing talent in the Crescent City.
Additionally, NOFW has been a launchpad for designers and models; being cast for popular TV Shows such as Project Runway, America’s Next Top Model, invitations to walk or show in NYC, Paris, and other Fashion Week events. NOFW Model Casting Call is scheduled for Sunday, June 25, 2023, from 11AM-3PM at Paul Mitchell School of Cosmetology in Metairie, LA. Models selected from the casting calls will be given the chance to take their talents to the runway during NOFW and be seen by invited agents that are scouting for new faces to add to their agency board. Interested models should preregister for the casting at www. neworleansfashionweek.com/ modelcasting.
