“font-size: 12pt; line-height: 115%;”>The Apparel, Merchandising,

and Design Department are looking for models for the annual

Textiles and Clothing Fashion Show.  The Fashion Show,

which is a student run event, will be held on April

14th, 2012.  This year marks the

30th anniversary for the fashion show and is expected to

be as great as years past.  In order to put on a

successful show, the department and coordinators for The Fashion

Show are in need of student models. In order to recruit models for

the show, the directors hold open tryouts every year. This year,

tryouts will be held in Lebaron Lounge on Monday the

14th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Thursday the

17th from 6p.m. to 9 p.m.  The tryouts

themselves will be done in groups consisting of three to five

models that walk in front of a panel of seven judges. Each model

gets the opportunity to walk individually and the whole process

lasts only a few minutes.  Men and women of all shapes

and sizes are encouraged to try out and the only requirements to

tryout are to be currently enrolled at Iowa State and be in good

academic standing. If selected, models are not only given the

experience to walk the runway in a fashion show, they also receive

one academic credit for the 2012 spring semester.  To
