Produced by Guavaberry Marketing, “The Making of a Fashion Model”, which runs from 15 to 17 August, is not just for models, both male and female, but is for anyone interested in the fashion industry and how it works — models, photographers, make-up artists and stylists and generally anyone interested in working or understanding the industry. Models come in all shapes, sizes and ages — Print, Runway, Magazine, Fashion, Glamour, Petite and Plus-size modeling –and the workshop will help them to understand their potential, how the industry works and how to get access to their dreams.

At the “Making of a Fashion Model” workshop, persons interested in modeling will get the opportunity to work with top stylists, photographers, modeling agency’s representatives and runway coaches within the international fashion industry.  

“The workshop idea came as a direct request from the public based on the success of the 2011 Solstice event and the need for formal training of our local models” said Cindy Rosan-Jones, Managing Director for Guavaberry and producer of Cayman Fashion Solstice. Some of the classes scheduled for the workshop include: runway training, working with a photographer, go-sees & casting, grooming and healthy dieting and exercise and proper make-up application.

The cost of the workshop is CI$175. Registration information can be picked up at Guavaberry Marketing (#210 Regency Court, above Havana Club).

The climax of the workshop will see the annual Casting Call for this year’s Cayman Fashion Solstice event.  At the Casting Call, male and female models have anopportunity to present themselves as potential models for the show.  The Casting Call is scheduled for August 17th at Royal Palms, poolside.  The Model Workshop will be extremely helpful to hopeful models who wish to share the runway with the international models at the 2011 event.
