Angie’s Models & Talent International 2010 Gala Show Case
Over the weekend I had the privilege of attending Angie’s Models & Talent International 2010 Gala Show Case. Angie’s Models is one of the biggest modeling agency here in Ottawa. She discovered The Notebook hottie Ryan Gosling when he was 14 living in Cornwall, a small town about 2 hours from Ottawa.
The show was at the Canadian War Museum (explaining why there are tanks in the background) and consisted of various merchants and designers. There were showcases from companies such as Gap kids, The Bay, Bluenotes to independent designers. Some of the collections that caught my eyes were Amber Watkins, Demu Label, Stella & Dot, Sylvery Gray, and Anastasia Lomonova. But the main purpose of the show is to showcase the models to local and international scouts. So of course, all the models looked great and overall Angie definitely put on an amazing show.
Congratulations to Holly Angus for booking the YELLOW SHOES Fall Campaign! She shot it in Montreal. This was Holly’s first audition and first booking! The client loved her!
Congratulations to Shanelle Currie for booking the National TV Commercial for West 49 as the Surfer Girl!
