The organizers of Monrovia Fashion Week (MFW) have announced it is still seeking applications for runway models, fashion designers, natural hairstylists and volunteers for its up-coming event.
Alicia Johnson, CEO of Mod.L Management, which is running the casting call, said, “We didn’t get our targeted members of 50; so the MFW casting call continue.”
She added that MFW would begin a field campaign to get more models to participate in the events.
“What MFW look for in a model is intelligence, the normal height and being a good public speaker. MFW doesn’t just offer models and designers a platform for the biggest recognition but provides business opportunity,” she explained.
She said spaces are also available for makeup artist, along with editorial and commercial models, to grace the MFW promotion and magazine features, in addition to a very special competition, ‘Face of Monrovia Fashion Week.’
Ms. Johnson said fashion designers that would add creativity and innovation into their designs, giving the audience a feeling of fashion, are highly welcome to apply.
She encourages models, fashion designers, natural hairstylists, along with makeup artists and others, to think of the MFW event as a step forward to a global audience and recognition.
The event is slated for December 17 through 20, 2015 and will present the latest collection to fashion journalists, photographers, stylists, retail buyers, among others.
During the first model casting callout more than 28 models, including fashion designers, some of whom came in style and class, showed up for registration.
Hailed by the public and media as a good project, since debuting in December 2013 and being nominated for the best fashion event of the year at the African fashion awards, MFW has continued to promote Liberian fashion industry on the global stage.
For this year fashion gig there will be one male and female chosen respectively as winners to feature on the first magazine cover, along with a feature fashion editorial spread.
In response Marjean Sherman, founder of MFW said: “We will continue looking for more, but now the team will work with what they have.”
The organization is still accepting e-mail applications from non- Liberian models resident out of the country, she added.
Marjean said “The purpose for MFW is to discover, showcase and inspire fashion talent in and from Liberia, as well as from the rest of the world.”
“Liberia has unique fashion inspirations and designs to showcase to the world, and it is our responsibility to do that,” Marjean said.
