Jean Charles De Castlebajac (try saying that five times fast) is launching a diffusion line this fall at London Fashion Week. (Not too surprising given the habit of big designers looking to make money a little more quickly and easily.) What is surprising, however, is the fact that he’s not casting the show from the same crop of 200 or so lovely, skinny ladies who crawl the catwalks for pretty much every show around. Instead, he’s holding an open model search for “real” girls and boys 16 to 25.
So if you’ve always harbored a semi-secret desire to be a model, send a picture to firstname.lastname@example.org before September 7th and keep those fingers crossed. [Elle UK]
