91 ZM and Hewlett Packard are holding auditions for both professional and aspiring models to feature in high profile fashion shows at the exciting, new fashion event, NZ Runway. NZ Runway is a consumer focused event showcasing the best of NZ fashion design and lifestyle and will also feature live music and performances by leading artists.

Casting will involve a brief interview and a walk down the catwalk for a panel of the industries best and guest celebrity judges.

Those selected will get to experience the lifestyle of a fashion model and strut their stuff on NZ Runway’s Diet Coke Art Arena.
