(APPLICATION MATERIALS AT BOTTOM)
The purpose of the Franklin Runway Fashion & Modeling Show will be to allow artistic students to showcase their work, get awards, get experience, and start promoting their talents for the real world while putting together a portfolio for top arts and design schools. The Franklin Fashion 2020 Show will be a fundraiser hosted by the Tri-M Music Honor Society and Band & Orchestra department.
All contestants will receive certificates, recommendation letters for art schools/universities, digital portfolios, and event video. Top three models and designers will receive special awards.
Any student applying to be a model must present 10 photos (in 10 different outfits of their choosing), 3 good head shots. The 10 garments photos should demonstrate as many different hair styles and make ups as possible. Wigs and accessories are acceptable.
Model contestant applications, 10 photos, and $50 non-refundalbe application fees are due on February 1st, 2020.
APPLICATION FEES for models will be $75, (non-refundable).
PHOTOGRAPHERS & PHOTO SHOOT
As marketing and talent-promotion are major parts of the fashion and modeling industries, one of our biggest goals is to help all of our contestants to create and contribute to their personal portfolios. The photo shoot will take place the week before the fashion show as a means to have photos ready for judges to have as a resource for better decision-making while scoring, and as a means to make sure each line is completed and ready to go in time for the show.
The photo shoot will take place the first week of April.
All photos and designers sketches will be scanned, copied, and printed for brochures, programs, and the Portfolio Gallery at the entrance of the gym.
We will provide 3 judges to score the designers’ work, and 3 separate judges to judge the models. Judges will have a rubric of 10 items to critique. Each item will receive score from 1-10. All points will be calculated out of 300 points. A first place, second place, and third place will be chosen for both the designer category and modeling category.
Parent Volunteers may sign up to be a judge, but must have NO relation to any of the contestants. Volunteer experience and/or knowledge of fashion and design would be great!
MAKE-UP ARTISTS AND HAIR STYLISTS
Any student/parent who has experience with make-up and/or hair can be a make-up artist or hair stylist. HS students may get community service hours for their work, and may also have copies of the photos and videos from the show for their own portfolios. (Can community service hours be approved for this?)
We will have coaching sessions for the designers, models, make-up artists, and hair stylists depending on the talents, experience, and availability of our faculty and parent volunteers. In exchange for promotion at the show, fashion or design companies may send us coaches for the coaching sessions for the students.
As mentioned above, Parent Volunteers can use their make-up or hair styling talents to get service hours at the show. If any Parent Volunteers have experience and talents in designing and/or modeling, then we can host coaching sessions with the participants that would enrich their experience.
On the night of the event, the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy concessions in the cafeteria starting at 6 pm while the performers, designers, and models prepare in the gym. At 7:00 pm, the gym will be opened for the audience members to take pictures in front of the red carpet backdrops, enjoy the galleries, and find their seats. The event should start promptly at 7:30 pm.
