Could you be next top model?

Middleton Guardian - - THE LAUGHING BADGER - HE­LEN JOHN­SON

THE Mid­dle­ton Guardian has paired up with Mid­dle­ton Shop­ping Cen­tre to hunt for the mod­els of the fu­ture.

The Modelsearch team is invit­ing chil­dren from the age of four on­wards and adults of all ages to en­ter.

Any bud­ding mod­els are in­vited to come to a scout­ing day at the shop­ping cen­tre, this Satur­day, May 27, from 11am and 4pm at Mid­dle­ton Shop­ping,

The scouts will take a pic­ture and de­tails of the mod­els and se­lect around 60 peo­ple, who will be in­vited back on Mon­day, June 12, to a cast­ing at the cen­tre.

At the cast­ing ses­sion judges for the stores at Mid­dle­ton Shop­ping and the Modelsearch team choose a girl and boy in each of the age cat­e­gories, four to six, seven to ten, 11 to 15 and 16 years and over.

These mod­els will then go on to at­tend a pro­fes­sional fash­ion shoot at the Cen­tre in the au­tumn, when they also re­ceive a digital port­fo­lio of their pictures.

These eight mod­els will fea­ture in pub­lic­ity ma­te­rial for the fash­ion stores at the cen­tre and one of the fi­nal eight (cho­sen from any of the cat­e­gories) will be se­lected for an all ex­penses fash­ion shoot in London in Spring 2018 with top in­ter­na­tional pho­tog­ra­pher Lou Denim, who has pho­tographed Rob­bie Williams, Rita Ora and Jessie J as well as work­ing on fash­ion shoots for H & M, and Levi.

Cen­tre man­ager Lynette How­gate said: “We have some bril­liant fash­ion stores at Mid­dle­ton Shop­ping, so we are keen to find the best local tal­ent to model their col­lec­tions.

“Who bet­ter than our local shop­pers and their chil­dren to be our own su­per­mod­els and where bet­ter than the pages of Mid­dle­ton Guardian and the malls in our scheme to be­gin the search? We think Modelsearch will be a lot of fun which will take one per­son on a real voy­age of dis­cov­ery with a trip to London for a top qual­ity fash­ion shoot.

“In Novem­ber last year, Mary Joanna Coogan from Blackley was not only the adult win­ner the Mid­dle­ton Shop­ping Cen­tre’s Modelsearch com­pe­ti­tion, she was also one of the top eight who had a taste of the fash­ion life when she at­tended the London shoot.

“We ob­vi­ously have some great look­ing peo­ple in the town and hope that, once again, one of the even­tual fi­nal­ists will go to London for this fan­tas­tic mod­el­ling op­por­tu­nity.”
