Models, actors and dancers wanted for St Andrews runway show

We’re currently working with BID St Andrews to help deliver the live elements of the St Andrews Fashion Festival (STAFF) in February 2017, including a multimedia runway show, ‘FASHION’, on Saturday 11th Feb.

FASHION is an exciting showcase of some of the best collections in town, and we want to make it as much a live performance as a runway show. We’re looking for 10 interesting models with a theatrical flair to take part. Being a professional model is not a requirement.

Model brief

Catwalk talent is about personality, and comes in many different shapes and sizes, so we’ll consider all healthy body types. The ideal candidate should be graceful and physically fit, with the ability to take direction, interpret a creative concept and deliver a confident runway walk.

We’d like to hear from actual models, as well as actors, dancers, or anyone else with relevant skills and experience. We welcome notes of interest from candidates of all ages and gender identities.

This is a one-off freelance contract. To apply, you’ll need to be available on the following dates, in Edinburgh and St Andrews:

  • Casting in Edinburgh on Friday 3rd of February.
  • Rehearsal in Edinburgh on Wednesday 8th February (if successful).
  • Runway show in St Andrews on Saturday 11th February, all day (if successful).

(Please note that you must have the right to work in the UK to be considered.)
