Puerto Rico High Fashion Week (PRHFW), considered to be the main fashion event on the island, will hold auditions on Thursday, August 9, from 4:00 to 6:30pm at Eternal Lobby Lounge of the Conrad Condado Plaza Hotel, to select the group of models to participate on the PRHFW runway from September 20 to 22, 2012. CaribNews reports:
Local designers participating in the event will personally select the models, who must meet certain requirements. The female models must have a minimum height of 5’7 “, maximum hip of 36″, and wear a simple tight dress or shorts, high heels, and natural makeup. Male models must have a minimum height of 5’10 ” and wear casual attire.
Caridad Fernandez, president of the Puerto Rico High Fashion Week (founded in 2005), explains “As is the case for designers, the models’ participation in this event, which has international significance, constitutes a platform to develop and achieve greater exposure at all levels.” This event presents the most important local fashion designers, including the most promising young talent, as well as outstanding international designers.
