We are going to be casting for 2 shows:

The main show is Africa Fashion Week London on 11-12 August;  and the second show is an AFWL Curated Catwalk at Africa Utopia on 15 July.  If you cannot make either date, but still would like to be seen by us for future reference, please attend this casting.

Africa Fashion Week London is a 2-day show.  You will be expected to walk for at least 35 designers over the 2 days.  This means lots of catwalk air time in front of an international audience and press.  We are looking for at least 30 female models and 12-15 male models.  This is a paid assignment.

The AFWL Curated Fashion Show at Africa Utopia is a small show.  It is a 1-day assignment.  You will be expected to walk 2 or 3 times.  It is a paid assignment.


Date is Sunday 25 June 2017, 2pm -4pm
