Modelsearch is coming to Barnstaple!

Green Lanes Shopping Centre is teaming up with North Devon Gazette to hunt for the models of the future.

There are two scouting days on Saturdays 6th and 20th May between 11am and 4pm at Green Lanes Shopping Centre, Barnstaple when they are inviting anyone age 4 years and over to come along.

The Modelsearch scouts will take a picture and details of the models at these scouting days and select around 60, who will be invited back on Thursday 22 June to a casting at the Centre.

At the casting session judges from the stores at Green Lanes and the #Modelsearch team will choose a girl and boy in each of the age categories (4 to 6, 7 to 10, 11 to 15 and 16 year and older) and these models will attend a professional fashion shoot at the Centre in the Autumn when they also receive a digital portfolio of their pictures.

These eight models will feature in publicity material for the great fashion stores at Green Lanes and one of the final eight will be selected for an all expenses paid fashion shoot in London in Spring 2018 with top international photographer Lou Denim. Lou has photographed Robbie Williams, Rita Ora and Jessie J as well as working on fashion shoots for H&M and Levi.

“We have some brilliant fashion stores at Green Lanes, so we are keen to find the best local talent to model their collections” says Michael Knowles on behalf of the Shopping Centre “Who better than our local shoppers and their children to be our own supermodels, and where better than the pages of The North Devon Gazette and the malls in our scheme to begin the search? We think Modelsearch will be a lot of fun which will take one person on a real voyage of discovery with a trip to London for a top quality fashion shoot."
