LMFF Castings part 1.

So on Tuesday 29th January, the castings for LMFF took place at the Malvern town hall. Can I just say, the Town Hall is such an incredible building! It's huge and the architecture is beautiful. Anyway, with hundreds of hopeful models, both girls and boys, there will only be  approximately 60 that will be chosen to walk in the festival. In order to make the cut, the models had to walk in front of a panel who decide which models have what it takes to represent the festival and all the amazing Australian designers involved. It can be a very daunting process for the young models who are just starting out. Having to walk in a massive room filled with people staring, photographing and filming you, while you are also being judged on both your look and walk. I felt very lucky to be on the other side, photographing and admiring the girls and boys. If they had potential, after walking for the first panel, they were then asked to walk again solo so they could be filmed (as oppose to the groups of 3), then photographed and there height measured. After this process the panel will decide on the girls and boys that will be chosen to walk in L'Oréal Melbourne Fashion festival in March. Unfortunately not every model makes the cut and for each one that got asked through to the second half of the casting, about 10 did not. I was lucky enough to be invited along to the casting and took some photos to share with you all. To be surrounded by so many beautiful, young hopefuls, you feel a little bad that so many don't make the cut. But that's the modelling world for you. Hannah M from Giant and Paris Roberts from London Managemnt, are two in particular that stood out to me. Hannah is in the last photo and I will include a photo of Paris in my next post. I really do hope they both make the cut as they were gorgeous and so sweet. Although Paris is quite short in terms of being a catwalk model, she has a certain presence about her that you can't take your eyes off. Then Hannah M is just beautiful. Looking forward to the festival in March to see which models made it! I'm sure I won't be disappointed as the talent that cast for the Festival was amoung the best in Australia. Anyway, I also managed to meet the amazing Monty Coles whose photographs are incredible. He was so lovely and I look forward to seeing more of his work. Hope you enjoy some of the 'behind the scenes' pic's to get an idea of how it all goes on :) xx
