Charleston Fashion Week has announced that in addition to accepting applicants online, they will hold open model castings in Charleston, Atlanta, and Charlotte for the March 20-24, 2012 event. Accredited with discovering and cultivating talent, former CFW models have gone on to land contracts with IMG and Elite and television appearances on Americaâs Next Top Model. The CW series featuring Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker, and Jay Manuel most recently voted Charleston Fashion Week former model Molly OâConnell as a finalist during season 16 of the successful show.
In conjunction with the Spring Bridal Show, chic after-parties and citywide shopping events, the premier fashion event will feature close to 35 runway shows under the tents in Marion Square. Charleston Fashion Week organizers look to add as many as 300 male and female models to the event look book this fall. All models that are cast for Charleston Fashion Week 2012 will receive a gift bag, recognition on the CFW website, and the opportunity to compete in the Rock the Runway Model Competition.
