WHAT: An audition to show us how confident you are in your underwear! We want your big personality, energy and excitement!
WHO: Confident women and men of all backgrounds, shapes and sizes to rock our runway this spring in our annual runway show. You must be 19+ at the time of the actual Fashion Show on June 3rd 2016
Our annual runway show will be taking place Friday, June 3rd 2016 at the Cascades Casino in Langley, BC. Our 2016 theme will the Roaring 1920’s! (To celebrate our 20th store anniversary)
We want to create an exciting, fun and engaging show – just like the past couple of years. So no straight faced, high-fashion walks here. At the audition you will be asked to register and sign a model release form (if you haven’t Pre -Registered already). You’ll then be measured, asked to change and give us your best runway walk – in your undies! We will take four photos of you (head shot, full body front, full body side and full body back) and some video.
What to Bring:
1. Your ID (to prove you’re over 19, or will be 19 at the time of the actual Fashion Show on June 3rd)
2. A bikini or bra and panty set you feel comfortable walking in. Guys bring your best boxer style briefs. (There will be a private place to change)
3. A pair of heels you can walk confidently in (ladies only!) Men will be walking barefoot.
4. Head/Body shots if you have them
Q: Where is the Fashion Show held?
A: The main event will be held on Friday June 3rd at the Cascades Casino (20393 Fraser Hwy. Langley, BC). The Casting Call is held at our store. (Forever Yours Lingerie, 20460 Fraser Hwy. Langley, BC)
Q: How many spots are available?
A: As much as we would like to take everyone who tries out, we are only looking to fill 7 Female and 2 Male slots. This means not everyone will be selected. We will contact those whom have been chosen within 2 weeks.
Q: I’m not 19, can I audition?
A: Unfortunately, we cannot accept anyone under the age of 19 to walk in our show. ID will be checked. You may audition if you will be 19 by the time of the event on June 3rd 2016.
Q: Is this a paid gig?
A: This is a volunteer event. Proceeds benefit our charitable initiative, Supportive Start, our program that brings proper fitting bra’s and panties to women in need. If we really like your look, you might be selected to participate in future paid photo shoots for marketing purposes.
Q: Do I need to RSVP or book a time slot to audition?
A: It is required that you fill out our Pre-Registration to allow yourself plenty of time to get ready once you arrive. This is an open audition and there are no appointments necessary. Show up at the front doors of the Forever Yours Lingerie store anytime from 6:00PM-7:30PM on January 21, 2016 and we’ll greet you at the door. The last applicant accepted will be at 7:30 to allow for enough time to allow us to see and consider everyone.
Q: I am not a size two, can I audition?
A: YES! We love representing all body types in our runway shows and promotions.
Q: My boobs are itty bitty – not like some of the models I’ve seen you use, can I audition?
A: YES! We don’t discriminate. We love you and every bit of your bust. We carry B-cup’s and up in our store.
Q: I’m 5’2″ can I audition?
A: YES! You don’t have to have “legs for days”.
Q: I have purple hair and tattoos, can I audition?
A: Rock on! Colorful hair, full sleeves or a tiny ankle tattoo, we love it all.
Q: I don’t have that washboard ab look, can I audition?
A: You mean you’re not a Ken Doll?! YES! Of course you can audition.
Are you getting the hint yet? No matter what you look like, we just want to see how confident you are on the runway. This is your chance to tick something daring, risky and totally fun off of your bucket list! What are you waiting for?
Q: I’m not able to attend the Casting Call on January 21st, can I set up a private audition another time or send photo’s/my portfolio?
A: Unfortunately this is not an option. The most important thing to us is your personality and energy. It is hard for us to judge your runway walk and charisma through images. We set up Casting Call Auditions to give everyone a fair chance to showcase what they’ve got and how they perform in front of others.
Q: I’m unable to attend the dress rehearsal on June 2nd (the day before the big show), does this affect my chance of being in the show?
A: Attending dress rehearsal is mandatory and a crucial part of running a smooth event. If you cannot attend the dress rehearsal we regretfully cannot use you in the show.
Q: I have modeled for your fashion shows before, do I have to audition again?
A: No you don’t. Models that have previously walked for us will receive an email inviting them back for this year’s show. If you did not receive an email from us it’s not because you didn’t do a fabulous job. We just like to inject new faces into every show and give other people a chance too.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 604-532-1933 if we didn’t address your question.
The Fine Print:
If selected, you will be required to sign a model release contract. This will be detailed on paper, but basically gives us rights to use your images and videos taken at the event for our promotional purposes. The Fashion Show will be held on Friday June 3rd 2016 and you must be available from 2pm onward that day. Additionally you will need to be available for a mandatory dress rehearsal Thursday June 2nd from 6-9PM. We will require you for a maximum of two separate in-store fittings in May. Keep an open mind – we might put you in a costume to spiff up your look on the runway. No matter how silly it may seem, we just ask that you’re willing to rock it! Depending on the costume we choose for you, a pre-show photo shoot on a day that works for you may be required. (Photo shoot is trade for print, see disclaimer on the Pre-Registration Form for more details).
