Fashion Tribe: International model search on
BY NADINE KAM / email@example.com
Are you the next Keke Lindgard? The local model, back home for Honolulu Fashion Week, has walked Paris runways, been featured on international magazine covers and been the face of Gucci Eyewear?
Find out if you have the look of an international superstar during the Honolulu Fashion Week Model Search taking place 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday at the Hawai’i Convention Center.
A panel of judges are searching for models between the ages of 15 to 24 years old. Females should be 5-foot-8 or taller, and guys between 5-foot-11 to 6-foot-3. Bring one to two portfolio images.
Models should wear:
» Simple, form fitting clothes
» Tight jeans or short skirts and tight tank tops or T-shirts
» Heels for girls
» No slippers
» Clean hair and clean face (no product in your hair and very minimal make up)
» Bring a bikini (women)
Judges include Roman Young, Wilhelmina International; Bobby Gutierrez, Wilhelmina Models, NYC; Damon Rutland, NOMAD Management; Lynne Hanzawa O’Neill, fashion show director; Lashauna Downie, Bliss Models and Talent; Ryan Brown, Wilhelmina Hawai‘i; and Joy Kam, Kathy Muller Talent and Modeling Agency.
Models will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis, with the last model seen at 12:30 p.m. Selected models will have an opportunity to be featured in next year’s fashion week event.
