Open model castings for Charleston Fashion Week (first casting call this weekend)

Update September 22: Models, aspiring models, or any lovely people out there who submitted an application online, here's a reminder for you: the first Charleston Fashion Week model casting call this Saturday.

The venue for the casting call is the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina, located at 20 Patriots Point Road.

All models under the age of 18 are required to attend with a guardian.

First reporting: Charleston Fashion Week has announced that in addition to accepting applicants online, they will be holding 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 America’s Next Top Model. The CW series featuring Tyra Banks, Nigel Barker, and Jay Manuel most recently voted Charleston Fashion Week former model Molly O’Connell as a finalist during season 16 of the successful show.

In conjunction with the Spring Bridal Show, chic after-parties and charitable fundraisers, 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.
