Models sought for Cult-Couture Awards

Manukau City Council is looking for models for the inaugural Cult-Couture fashion awards.

Casting is being held on Saturday 17 August 2002 at Nathan Homestead, 70 Hill Road, Manurewa at 9am.

Awards organiser, Leisa Siteine says, “We are looking for people from all ethnic backgrounds, including European, Maori, Pacific Island and Asian, and both males and females. Women should be a size 10 to 14 and men sized 81 - 86 waist and with average height of 6ft plus.

“We’re asking the models to donate their time for free, but we will be offering them a couple of professional photographs to begin or add to a portfolio. It will be a fantastic opportunity for anyone wanting to enter this field as a career to see what it is like. Or you could be someone that has always wanted to just have a go at modelling.”

Adam Dehaar, a professional model who has modelled overseas for the last five years, will teach those chosen all the basic modelling moves. Successful applicants will have a month to practice putting their best foot forward before the Awards night on 20 September.

“The garments they will be wearing will not be your typical high fashion garments. We’re anticipating some crazy designs which will make it even more exciting for the models,” says Ms Siteine.

Anyone interested in finding out more can contact Leisa on 2750482 or 0252839885 or lsiteine@manukau.govt.nz

The Awards are organised by Manukau City Council and Toi o Manukau, with sponsorship from Westfield ShoppingTown Manukau.
