Model Open Call

September 21 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

On Saturday, September 21, 2019 from 10:30a-12:30p, the Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator (DE-FI) LLC will host our final Open Call for our Model Incubator for 2019! All applicants MUST be in line by 12p, models not in line by 12p will not be seen. This Open Call will take place at the main branch of the Dayton Metro Library, in conference room 3A.

This is your chance to join the (DE-FI) Model Incubator and receive first hand industry knowledge and experience from industry vets free of charge! Our volunteer based, community outreach focused incubator has helped pave the way for over a hundred regional models to be signed with modeling agencies from around the world by providing them with world class runway experience, tear sheet quality images, and professional development to help them avoid scams and pitfalls of the industry.

Our models have appeared on Project Runway, Empire, feature films, and in the pages of Vogue. They’ve been named top models to watch by InStyle Magazine. They’ve been signed to some of the world’s top modeling agencies including MP Model Management/Factor, Red, and Next, and have walked for Miami Swim Week, New York, Paris, and Milan Fashion Weeks for designers like Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, and Versace, just to name a few!

We have always celebrated beauty in all forms, there are no height or size restrictions. We also understand we only get better with age! Be sure to leave your wallet at home too because we do NOT sell classes or dreams and we do NOT require payment to join our family. All that we ask in return is that you volunteer 40 hours a year in your community, are willing to work as hard at achieving your dream as you expect us to work to help you achieve your dreams and that you respect our time and resources.

All applicants should wear all black form fitting attire for the Open Call. No makeup should be worn to the Open Call or in images. Hair should be pulled back into a ponytail or out of your face if you wear your hair shorter. No logos or wild print should be worn in person or in your images.  All applicants should wear comfortable shoes to the casting, seating will be limited. Each applicant should bring (2) recent images taken via cell phone and printed off (Images do not need to be professional), (1) Headshot and (1) Full body shot. Please write your full legal name, email address, and phone number legibly on the back of each image.

Applicants invited to join our Model Incubator are required to complete a series of  monthly Professional Development Workshops called Model Talk Modules before being eligible for castings, agency visits, photo shoots and other benefits related to (DE-FI).
