2nd Annual Midwest Model Search in Omaha Set for 6/14

Omaha Fashion Week, Develop Model Management and Westroads Mall have announced the Second Annual Midwest Model Search where model-hopefuls will be competing for a year-long modeling contract and placement on the runway at Omaha Fashion Week. The event will take place at Westroads Mall on the second floor in front of Dick's Sporting Goods store Saturday, June 14 from 2:00pm - 3:00pm.

Model contestants will compete for a contract with Develop Model Management, a professional casting and training agency, as well as a guaranteed spot to walk the runway in Omaha Fashion Week's August event. Develop Model Management has placed several top OFW models in larger markets such as Chicago, New York, Singapore, Tokyo, London, Milan and Paris. The winner will also be awarded one pair of VIP tickets to each weeknight show at Omaha Fashion Week's August event.

The model search will act as the only casting for anyone interested in walking the runway for Omaha Fashion Week's August event. During the casting, contestants should be prepared to have measurements taken, pose for mini-photo shoot, and walk the runway. Contestants will need two non-professional photos for casting directors to keep. Participants must meet the following industry requirements to participate:

· Females: 12-30 years old, 5'8" - 6'0" tall, sizes 0-14

· Males: 15-30 years old, 5'11" - 6'3" tall

Other modeling contracts may be offered by Develop Model Management on site.

Omaha Fashion Week's August season will feature new Spring/Summer 2015 collections from 36 Midwest fashion designers. The season is scheduled for August 18-23 in the Capitol District in Downtown Omaha. Tickets are on sale at www.omahafashionweek.com/tickets.
