W magazine and Simon Malls have teamed up to discover modeling talent across the country. Beginning on August 20, W and Simon will host casting call events at 10 shopping centers nationwide, including The Galleria Houston on August 27.
“Simon is dedicated to celebrating fashion, discovery and community at our iconic shopping centers,” said Christopher Lane, The Galleria’s Director of Marketing and Business Development. “We know our young shoppers love fashion, and malls are the ideal scouting ground for new models. By teaming up with W magazine, we’re giving them a unique chance to enter the modeling and fashion world.”
“We are thrilled to work with Simon as we expand our talent scouting efforts,” said Lucy Kriz, publisher and chief revenue officer of W magazine. “W magazine is known for discovering and supporting new talent in its pages, from young photographers to up-and-coming models. Through our program with Simon, we are reaching readers and shoppers who are passionate about modeling and fashion.”
The open casting calls will take place at The Galleria Houston on August 27 from 12-6 p.m.
At the casting call, aspiring models will have professional images taken by a W-commissioned photographer, for a chance to be featured in the magazine’s March 2017 issue, and for the opportunity to star in an upcoming Simon Malls ad campaign. Attendees will also select their favorite images for their own future use, and meet a member of the W magazine team.
The casting call events are free and no advance registration is required. For more information, visit simon.com.
