Here are some opportunities to keep an eye out for! Open to everyone, agency or no agency!
The highly anticipated, Milwaukee Fashion Week auditions are just around the corner! The best part? You don’t have to be a professional or experienced model to try out!

We are currently looking for the following EXACT sizes for Fit Modeling:
Please read, “What Is Fit Modeling”
- GIRL’S/CHILD SIZE 12: Age: 7-16. Height: 57″-59″ inches tall. (Slightly below 5″0.) If your daughter is 5″0 or taller, she is too tall for this position.
- Bust: 30 Waist: 25 Hip: 32
- If your daughter has a teen body with curves and is currently wearing Junior’s clothing, we are not looking for her. We are looking for a true kid’s size 12 with a child’s body for this particular size.

WHAT IS FIT MODELING:
“Fit Modeling” is a type of modeling that not many people know about, as Fit Models work behind the scenes. Fit models are real life, every-day people who are hired to come in once a week for 1-3 hours at a time to actually try on and test clothing before it gets mass produced for the store.
Fit models never appear in print, but are generally compensated at a substantially higher rate than catalog models because Fit Models must have measurements which happen to fall EXACTLY within the targeted measurement guidelines. (The right fit model can be hard to find!)
To be even more straight-forward, it does not matter what your face looks like, what hair color you have, if you have braces or not, or even if you struggle with acne or break outs…Fit Modeling also has nothing to do with runway or posing.
The ONLY thing that matters is that you or your child fall within the given measurements within a 1″ inch!
The goal here is to actually find people with the most “Average” body for each clothing size. By doing this, designers are able to custom tailor the clothing to fit the fit model’s body. Being selected as a fit model means that the store’s clothing lines will be custom fit to your exact body shape & size! Our fit models average about $50-$200 per session.
THIS AUDITION IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. However, if selected, you will be required to sign to MTM Agency. Please refrain from posting this casting on social media, but if you know any friends or family that may fall within these metrics, please privately inform them about the casting. and invite them to attend on April 8th.
Please email me at email@example.com if you have further questions regarding this open call audition.

Guests will enjoy vintage beats by DJ Paul H, nickel beer taps from 7 to 9 p.m., house-made bathtub gin from an antique tub, era-inspired cocktails, a lavish costume contest for most fab flapper and dapper gent and plenty of risky/risqué business.
