Fashion Week New Orleans (FW NOLA) will be hosting a casting call for runway models for its FW NOLA ‘12 event taking take place March 21-25, at the Sugar Mill in the Historic Warehouse District of New Orleans.
Inspired by Fashion Week NYC and the rich diverse culture of Louisiana; FW NOLA’s goal is to present a consumer driven showcase of prêt-à-porter fashions available at local retailers and boutiques, while also giving emerging, established, and renowned fashion designers a platform to display their collections in a series of runway shows, fashion events and exhibitions. And it is because the region is continually recognized globally for its authentic cuisine, music talent and spicy lifestyle that the organizers of the event feel it is only fitting that the unique talents of fashion designers, make-up artist, hair stylist, and models be included in this list of prestigious characteristics.
The event will feature over 35 incredible runway shows featuring retailers, boutiques, and designers from the Gulf Coast region.
