Lolita Fashion Show
Models should be 15 years of age or older by date of show.
Models MUST be available for a hair and makeup appointment between 3 and 7 PM. Models will be emailed detailed information regarding their appointment and the location of the dressing room.
Additionally, models MUST attend a fitting and rehearsal on Friday afternoon (Time TBD).
Models will be expected to provide the following:
- Camisole (if wearing a sheer blouse)
- Hosiery (socks or tights)
Models will be notified of the color of hosiery and shoes required when they are assigned an ensemble.
It’s preferred that models arrive wearing basic foundation or can supply their own.
Fitting and rehearsal (tentatively scheduled for 2 PM on Friday 4/7).
All models MUST have a valid badge for Tekko 2017 (general admission, premium, or rock star). Staff models will be accepted in the event that we do not receive enough attendee applicants.
Tekko and PittJCS cannot guarantee that you will be chosen for the fashion show. We also cannot guarantee that you will be modeling for a particular brand. Applications will be reviewed by the fashion show coordinator and the designers. The designers will have final say in which models are selected.
Any model who has not arrived for her/his styling appointment 5 MINUTES before the scheduled time OR who has not made prior arrangements with staff will be replaced by an alternate and blacklisted from future modeling opportunities with Tekko and PittJCS.
All models will be REQUIRED to sign a form consenting to pay for any damages to the garments that occur before, during, or after the fashion show.
By appearing in the fashion show, you consent to being filmed/photographed by PittJCS. Any media featuring the models may be utilized by Tekko/PittJCS to promote future events via the website, social media, etc.
