Marks Work Warehouse looking for residents to 'strut their stuff' on the runway at fundraisers

Marks Work Warehouse is hosting three upcoming fashion shows, in which they are looking for Airdrie residents to come forward and participate as runway models.
“It’s a great way to get some exposure, gain experience and build self confidence,” said Damien Tiloshanec, special events ambassador for Marks Work Warehouse.
“Why not give people the opportunity to get on stage and strut their stuff.”
Models can be either male or female and of all ages.
They must be Airdrie residents, and no experience is needed.
Male models must be a minimum height of 5’8” and there is no height restriction for females.
Tiloshanec said they have used models from surrounding areas such as Calgary in past fashion shows, but they wanted to make these ones local in an effort to support the Airdrie community.
The first fashion show will take place at the Airdrie Home & Lifestyle Show at Genesis Place, which will be on April 28 in support of the Airdrie Chamber of Commerce to promote local businesses.
On May 10, Marks Work Warehouse will be hosting another fashion show to raise money for breast cancer research.
The third show will be on June 14, and will raise money for Jumpstart – an organization helping underprivileged children play sports.
“I’m really looking for people with passion, community spirit and great personalities,” said Tiloshanec. “It’s all about promoting the community and local charities within the community.”
He said it may also provide job opportunities for the inexperienced models.
“It’s fun seeing people get up on stage and having fun – it’s being a model for a day,” said Tiloshanec. “It could be a dream becoming a reality.”
Participants will be modelling clothing from Marks Work Warehouse and there will be free seminars and workshops on how to walk the stage prior to the shows.
