Generally speaking it is easy to find willing volunteers to model in the show. A variety of height, shapes and
sizes is good. You must have the models measurements as soon as possible to ensure the outfits all fit.
Discussing the small details of the show is perhaps the most fun and creative part of organising the event. How are you going to make your show really original, make it really stand out? The team should get together to brainstorm a few ideas. How is the show going to work? Is it going to be one continuous catwalk show or is it going to be broken up into ‘scenes’ or ‘looks’ with a short break in between? If so, how are you going to fill the break, remember you need to entertain the audience at all times?
2. Perhaps there is a band or singer who would like to perform. Or perhaps some dancers who would like to perform a routine.
3. A poetry reading or short drama piece.
4. A magician or jugglers always entertain the audience.
5. Use the breaks to highlight some of thinking behind the show. EG if you want to highlight the use of child labour in the fashion industry you could show a film1 or read an account of children working to produce clothing for Europe.
6. If the show is being organised as a fundraising event then a spokesperson from the charity could make a short speech about the nature of the charity.

8. Think about how you are going to introduce the show. Are you going to have a compere to introduce the different sections of the show? Consider whether you will have amplified sound. Or perhaps at the beginning of each section the first model can hold a sign signifying the new ‘look’. 9. What music are you going to use?
