Fashion Week at EMU
By Raquel Parks

Grab your heels and prepare your best runway walk for a major fashion event! Eastern Michigan University’s student organization, Fashionality, is looking for models to strut in its annual Fashion Week, this October.

Fashionality is a non-profit organization that consists of students, aspiring to have careers in Apparel Textile Merchandise, Marketing, Public/ Media Relations, and Fashion.

The student organization has made history as the first student organization to fully sponsor, host, and produce a fashion week at a major university.

Now, in its 5th year of hosting, Fashionality is striving to deliver an even bigger production for Fashion Week in Michigan at its university. In preparation for the event, Fashionality is holding public auditions for models from all over the state.

Women and men, between the ages of 16-30 are welcomed. Females are asked to bring heels that are 4 inches or higher to walk in. Auditions will be held on Monday, June 4th and Wednesday, June 6th, between 5-8pm. The last model audition date will be on Saturday, June 9th, from 3-7pm.

Auditions will take place at the Eastern Michigan University Student Center, 900 Oakwood Ypsilanti, MI 48197 , on the third floor in room 350.  For more information, follow @FashionalityEMU on twitter and like their Facebook page.
