Macy’s announced it will hold a Better With Time model competition, providing women ages 50 and up the opportunity to walk the runway and serve as a model during the 2008 Better With Time Fashion Show.
Applications are available now in the intimate apparel and Charter Club ready-to-wear departments at the following Macy’s stores: Redmond Town Center, Bellevue, Downtown Seattle, Northgate, Alderwood, Everett, Southcenter, Federal Way, Puyallup, Tacoma Mall and Olympia.
In 250 words or less, applicants must describe what is great about being over 50 and give their insights into aging with style and grace. Completed applications are due no later than July 25 to the intimate apparel and Charter Club ready-to-wear departments at the Macy’s stores listed above.
Semifinalists will be chosen to walk the runway for a panel of local judges on Aug. 23 and will be judged on stage presence, personal enthusiasm and confidence. From the group, 15 finalists will be selected at the audition to be models in the 2008 Better With Time Fashion Show and Seminar on Oct. 4 in Downtown Seattle. This year’s seminar guest speakers include representatives from Ameriprise Financial, The Seattle Times and Wacoal.
Finalists are awarded a $100 Macy’s gift card and flowers. Additionally, they will receive model training from TCM, fashion fittings for the show, and a model makeover with hair and makeup prior to the fashion show.
