With New York Fashion Week due to commence on the 10th of February, castings for the shows are well under way with a gazillion models traipsing frantically all over the city in the hopes of landing a coveted spot in the most influential of shows. ACW's casting is perhaps one of the most important castings for any new or established model. The ACW agency led by director Andrew Weir and his skilled team, casts shows for Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Proenza Schouler, Hugo Boss, Nicole Farhi, Malo, Marchesa, Hussein Chalayan, and Viktor & Rolf.
An appearance in a show such as Calvin Klein, generates the kind of buzz about a new model that can potentially translate into a stellar runway season and more importantly major campaign bucks. ACW's annual casting held at the Hudson Hotel has become somewhat of a casting extravaganza with hundreds of models converging on Soho in the hopes of impressing the powers that be. Models.com were on hand to provide a behind the scenes chronicle of the event. Kudos to all of the models in attendance and best of luck!
