Thanks for your interest in our New York Fashion Week casting.  This opportunity is only available until the remaining modeling positions are filled.  The fashion shows are on Saturday, September 9, 2023 at the Westin New York Times Square Hotel.  This is a charity fundraising event. Showtimes are 12 o’clock noon and 4:00 PM.  There are no participation fees with this opportunity!  However, because it is a charity fundraiser, models are required to purchase two guest tickets at the show you prefer to model in. Two guest tickets are $150 ($75 each) for General Admission and $200 ($100 each) for first row VIP Admission. ***Ticket prices will increase on August 21st.***  Models will receive their runway photos from the producer complimentary (TFP). 


Step 1

Purchase your get tickets. Send a screenshot of your tickets to Betty Reliford at so we know that the tickets have been taken care of and we can confirm your casting with the producer.  If you purchase only one ticket to each show, you will be assigned to ONE show, not both. You will receive an email with instructions on how to get on the WhatsApp notification list.


Step 2

Next, as soon as possible, upload your casting photos and measurements to the Trendsetter Models website at:  Please follow the instructions carefully so that your photos look standard (example below). They can be done with a good camera phone.  Include a nice headshot glam photo with your submission to use for your personal NYFW social media banner. 

That’s it! (For now) You will be placed on the distribution list for updates on preparation details to make between now and September 9th.  Our group hotel rate has been filled, but there are no special hotel requirements.  Be prepared to report as early as 7:00am Saturday for the 12 Noon show, and 11:00am for the 4:00pm show. If you have questions, or didn't receive reporting and submission information to your email and/or phone, please call Betty Reliford at 305-316-8757.
