Greg & Ali on ‘Wake Up’ were excited to have Matilda Alegria on the program Friday. Matilda is the pioneer of large-scale, high calibre fashion shows in Darwin. Her mix of creative and ready-to-wear collections have impressed audiences and garnered national media attention since revealing her first collection A Minute’s Warning in 2012.
Now finalising her highly anticipated fourth collection Alter Ego, a high-end fashion performance led my Matilda Alegria, partnering with leading local performers, artists, businesses and organizations, Matilda has cemented her role as the rising star of fashion. Matilda is also hosting a retrospective catwalk event as part of October Business Month at Paspalis Business Centre. These events will demonstrate the Territories international capabilities through a range of innovative talents.
One of these talents is the catwalk modeling opportunities available to aspiring or mid career Territory models. Matilda has scheduled a casting call for models to apply for a position as one of the models in either Frontline Fashion in October, or Alter Ego in November.
“This is an incredible opportunity for an emerging or mid career model,” said designer Matilda Alegria. “Both events are highly regarded and will offer models the chance to walk in a high fashion showcase, the only of it’s kind in Darwin. I hope to unearth some fresh new faces into the local model scene.”
Alter Ego is searching for 3 male models to take part in Alter Ego, a first for one of Matilda Alegria’s theatrical productions. Applicants are being sought from females over 170 cm tall, aged between 16 and 32 with no size preference, and males over 178cm tall, aged between 16 and 35 with no size preference.
Applicants must be available for catwalk training, hair and make up preperations and of course on the show days in either October or November. The casting call will take place at 12pm Sunday 2nd August 2015 at Paspalis Business Centre. Models are required to demonstrate, in front of a panel of industry representatives, their catwalk abilities, take direction and showcase what presence they bring to the runway.
