  • Makeup should be minimal and natural. Come as a blank canvas


  • Clean White T-Shirt | Fitted Blue Jeans | Hard Bottom Shoes

Dress code will be STRICTLY enfored. Failure to adhere will result in immediate exclusion from the audition process.

What do I need to bring? Yourself and a positive attitude! You do not need to bring any photos as we will take our own during the event. Men: it is helpful if you know your inseam measurement ahead of time. 

What happens when I arrive? Arrive early. Join the line. In line you will receive your model number to be pinned to your shirt. Aspiring models will get their measurements (waist, bust, hips, height) taken by volunteers, have a headshot and full body shot taken and walk the runway in front of our judges, designers, and video camera. You have just a short amount of time to shine on the runway so be sure to practice ahead of time! Then you'll hand your model number back to our volunteer and be on your way! 

Who can see the photos and video taken of me at Model Call? After Model Call, photo and video is uploaded to a private website. The link to this site is shared only with current Magic City Fashion Week designers for the purpose of selecting their models. 

When do I find out if I made the cut? Selected models will be notified by email. If you were not selected, you will not receive any notification. Please do not email Magic City Fashion Week regarding your status. It is very important that you provide an accurate email address so you can be notified if you made it into Magic City Fashion Week! 

What if I don't make it? Don't be discouraged! Stay tuned to Magic City Fashion Week social media and website for information on our next model call. Each season brings a new set of designers looking for a different aesthetic. Or if you still want to be involved, consider volunteering at our shows to learn more about Magic City Fashion Week! 

I made it. What's next? Congrats! Pay attention to your email! This will be the primary method that both MCFW and your specific designer gets in touch with you. Be responsive and block your calendar out for rehearsal & show dates now! If you have any questions or don't hear from your designer, contact
