Designers are responsible for communicating with models about rehearsals.

Bring your designs to the rehearsal if you are still looking for a model.
All designers and models are required to fill out a photo release form.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
1. How do I volunteer as a model?
Designers are encouraged to have their own models, however, the Trashion/Refashion committee can help place models with designers. If you are interested in volunteering as a model, please fill out our Model Application. We will need your measurements in order to best pair you with a designer. Designers are responsible for communicating all requirements, commitments, and guidelines to their models and/or teams.
2. What is the rehearsal time commitment?
We divide rehearsals between the ReFashion group and the Trashion group, each has two rehearsals, approximately one hour each in the month before the event and one mandatory dress rehearsal the day of the event. Designers and models are required to attend all three rehearsals. During the rehearsals, we will ask that each model or guardian sign a consent for participation release for the event.
3. Can I use my own makeup/hair stylists?
Our designers will decide how they want their designs to look while they're walking on the runway. As a model, you should be open to hair and make-up styles the designer wants. Space is limited behind the scenes at the theater, if you require a lot of space or materials to get ready, please consider arriving at the theater with as much hair and make-up finished as possible.
