Two upcoming fashion casting calls_lowres

Here are a few pieces from Alicia Zenobia's 2011 summer collection.

Models, you might want to check out the fashion castings going on this weekend. From noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21 and 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 22 at 843 Carondelet St., The Makeup Lab Artistry, photographer Que Duong and HOP Models will be conducting a casting. They're looking for models to appear in print ads for VLUX Cosmetics, The Makeup Lab Artistry and a fashion spread in Art Nouveau magazine.

Que Duong and The Makeup Lab Artistry are a relentlessly creative team and regular contributors to CUE. I'm delighted to feature their talents in the upcoming September CUE issue, which will be on newsstands and online Aug. 23. Also, models who attend this casting may be considered for upcoming issues of CUE.

Designer Alicia Zenobia also holds a casting at 7 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 21 at 129 S. Dupre St. for two fashion shows. Models must be available for shows the afternoons and evenings of Wed., Aug 24 and/or Friday, Aug. 26. Zenobia is a bit of a juggernaut among New Orleans fashion designers, winning the Alegria competition and the Fashion Week New Orleans designer competition last spring, and her summer 2011 collection was picked up by Hemline boutique.

Go get 'em, models. Good luck to you all.
