Open Casting Call
The Hawaii Fashion & Beauty Expo in March will host the Hawaii Top Model and Operation Runway competitions with an open casting call Feb. 19 from 10 a.m. to noon for models, and from 1 to 2 p.m. for designers at Honolulu Design Center.
These competitions are the Hawaii Fashion & Beauty Expo’s version of the hit reality television shows America’s Next Top Model and Project Runway.
Models and designers will be evaluated by a panel of four directors, who will eliminate contestants down to the top 10 semi-final-ists for the models and the top five semi-finalists for the designers. These finalists will then participate in the Hawaii Top Model and Operation Runway competitions March 25-27 at Neal Blaisdell Center in front of a live audience. More than $1,000 in cash and prizes will be awarded.
