No matter where you fall on the fashion spectrum - whether you're a model, a designer or simply somebody who likes to observe any or all of the above - there's an event this week to slake your sartorial thirst.
Things kick off tonight with a New Orleans Fashion Week casting call for models 5'6" and taller from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Paris Parker (4900 Prytania St., 891-8874).There will be two more castings this month if you miss tonight's. Last spring, models got approached by agencies Ford and Wilhelmina after appearing in NOLA Fashion Week shows. So it's definitely a good opportunity.
After that, head to Bouche Wine Bar (840 Tchoupitoulas St.) from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. to catch footage from Fashion Week New Orleans at a Bad Girls Club viewing party. The Bad Girls took to the runway last spring, modeling lingerie for House of Lounge and displaying an enviable assortment of tattoos.
The crew over here at CUE is still looking for the most stylish men in New Orleans, so we can lavish you with prizes and admiration. So keep those nominations coming, please!
Last of all, this Sunday, Sept. 18 there will be designer auditions for Alegria Fashion Show at The Bridge Lounge (1201 Magazine St., 299-1888). To reserve an audition spot, complete the application and email it to cuttingedgediva (at) yahoo.com. Call 626-354-8267 for more information.
I think that's all for now.
