Well I know Street Fashion Sydney (SFS) does on occasion shoot a runway parade but we have never written up a casting before. And bless AMPR who have been inviting SFS to Melbourne; yes I hear you Melbourne-Fashion Festival events in Sydney for quite a while now! That even though we have never written anything up...until now about our southern cousins Fashion Festival down there... We are doing it now.. But not so much about the festival; more on that later; media pass return ticket and accommodation pending; we all have dreams!
And I know a lot of you have dreams too, we all do; and have been watching Australia's Next Top Model and do wonder "what does a model wear to a casting", a real casting - not a casting you see on TV? So Street Fashion Sydney are taking you there with thanks to L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion Festival.
This is as real as it gets.
But no matter how tall you are (and you are very tall indeed) or what you wear.. It all happens with the panel selecting the models - and good to see; model comp cards are still part of the currency of modelling! Its not all about pictures on the Internet you know. And if you keep scrolling down you will also see the room - long and empty - YOU ARE A MODEL YOU MUST WALK - HERE FIRST!, before walking on the runway... Lets face it; being a model is not as easy as people often assume. Its one thing to walk a parade not easy in itself; but before a panel before you can walk the parade; that's another type of fashion runway altogether!
But I have to say everyone was great; the models were lovely and friendly and the LMFF team was very friendly too. And who were the models? Well they were of course from Viviens, Priscillas, Chic and Chadwicks and; not surprisingly even in the small demographic (tall though they were) were also from around Australia and around the world - but then that is the world of modelling.
