Menswear Fashion Week HIRING Male Models

Greetings Models,

It’s Male Fashion Week 2011 (MFW) time again and yes, Siren Productions is going to kick butt with another awesome full week of male fashion shows and parties so you guessed it, we need good, experienced male runway models.  Those who participated last year know what we expect and how we kind of run things,  how hectic, and fast paced it is so if you don’t work well under the gun, don’t bother applying.

Pay is not alot – 150L per show that you walk in but you will gain tons of friends and contacts in the fashion world and EXPOSURE
(PAY IS GIVEN AFTER THE ENTIRE WEEKS EVENTS ARE OVER JUST SO EVERYONE KNOWS UP FRONT)

We have very limited time between shows and there is only 1 (1-1/2 hour rehearsal) right before each show. Models must attend to learn the walk and have outfits looked over by staff.

The schedule listed on the enclosed notecard is simply a timeline and not set in stone and all the designers/shows are not finalized as of this date.

Our events get huge press with places like Molto, Avenue, KMadd and more so it’s a great addition for your modeling resume.  KMadd is a large sponsor again this year and will be providing some hair for shows.

BUT PLEASE:   IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY FULLY TRAINED IN RUNWAY MODELING/QUICK CHANGE ETC, DO NOT APPLY AS WE, UNFORTUNATELY DON’T HAVE TIME TO TRAIN NEW MODELS.

Let me just say that despite what many males may think, SL has fabulous male fashion designers, alot of them are just not so well known and we find those as well and also feature some of the more popular ones.

If you are interested in participating in this years MFW, please follow the directions below:

MAKE A FOLDER AND LABEL IT
“JOHN DOE” (INSERT YOUR NAME OF COURSE) MFW INFO
1 – CLOSE UP HEAD SHOT
A notecard with the times/dates you are available.
A COPY OF YOUR MODELING RESUME/ACCOMPLISHMENTS

If you have any questions, contact Tia Ryba or you can also buzz me on my other account Peggie Bundy as I’m on that one more these days running my businesses.

DO NOT IM LEXIE OR ANYONE ELSE ABOUT MODELING FOR THE SHOW PLEASE……I HAVE BEEN PUT IN CHARGE AGAIN.

Ok that’s it for now, once you’ve been accepted for the event, you will be invited to the Siren Production group so please make sure you have a group slot open for that week, if you can’t free one up until closer to event, that’s fine, just let me know.

Here is the tentative schedule (dates/times should  be pretty set)  it’s just the designers/shows we must finalize so look at your SL and RL schedules and make up the folder for me.   We send out a ton of notices in the Siren’s group once the ball is fully rolling on the show plans, number of models needed for each, etc so you’ll need to watch the notices or check them daily if you turn off your notices.

Hope to see you all there.

Sincerely,
Tia Ryba

Model Manager
