I am currently looking for volunteer models with more of an alternative look for an Ottawa fashion show being held in October 2015 in which I will be participating. Alternative models possess features and attributes which would normally exclude them from the narrow margins of acceptance in the modelling world, such as tattoos, piercings, coloured hair, edgy hairstyles, a shorter silhouette as well as being plus size. I have included some photos found online to illustrate examples of this esthetic.
I am a firm believer that true beauty and style comes in all shapes, sizes and personal statements. I am attracted to and inspired by individuals who stand out and exude comfort and confidence in being themselves. It is this person whom I design for and therefore, this is the type of model who would best represent my work in print and on the runway.
I will need five, maybe six, models and to date have found three confirmed lovelies. If there is anyone out there who is (or knows someone who would be) interested in this opportunity, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be in touch with more information.
The fashion show is shaping up to be a very inspiring event and I am excited to be part of this creative evening. We have some exceptional talent in Ottawa and it will be refreshing to combine such different points of view and themes in one show. The fashion show is definitely going to live up to its theme – art can be fashion and fashion can be art.
