The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival kicks off August 22nd, which means it's time for the organizers to find models to strut in some of the mile's best looks. If you're one of those leggy aspiring model types, we're jealous. We're also here to encourage you to head to an open casting call for your chance to walk in a fashion show for the festival.
Chicago/Atlanta modelling agency Factor Women is seeking girls ages 13 and up who are interested in modelling. Of course, there's a caveat: You must be between 5'7" and 5'11". If you fit these guidelines, bring two non-professional photos to one of the following castings:
All castings take place from 1-4 pm. Want to beat the rush? If you present your MasterCard at the casting, you'll be taken straight to the front of the line. If you book this gig you'll be part of the 12-day shopping event, which includes limited-time offers, celebrity appearances, fashion shows, outdoor concerts and more.
