Ozark Couture seeking models for Artosphere show

Seven local designers will be showing off their work at the Ozark Couture fashion show during Walton Arts Center’s Artosphere Festival this year, and they’re looking for some help showcasing their creations on the runway.

The Walton Arts Center announced last week that they’ve teamed up with Ozark Couture, and are currently seeking models of all body types, shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and attitudes to participate in the show.

Designs by Brooke Benham, Caylan Hudgens, Cynthia Parker, Kata Mari, Leslie Pennel, Mark Hughes and Rosie Rose will be on display at the event, scheduled from 4-8 p.m. Friday, May 20 in the Rose Garden outside the Walton Arts Center. Each of the designers will be creating fashions with a “Nature as Muse” theme, and the show will also feature a spoken word element created by local poets and writers.

If you’re interested in modeling at the event, send an email with the subject “Ozark Couture Model Application” to [email protected] before March 18. Make sure to attach a headshot (PDF format), and include the following information in the email:

After the submission process, models will be selected for an audition on Sunday, April 3, at the Starr Theater inside the Walton Arts Center. Models will need to be available for a minimum of one fitting with the designer and must also be able to attend the rehearsal at Walton Arts Center from 5-7 p.m. Friday, May 13.
