Fashion for a Cause | 2015 Male Casting Call


For many of us, Fashion Week is a time to keep a pulse on the latest trends for next season- whether you’re tuning into a live feed from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week or style stalking hashtags on Instagram for London, Milan or Paris Fashion Weeks. But the truth of the matter is not everyone can attend or have access to the exclusive soirees and rub shoulders with models and designers. Because of this, cities have been meticulously planning their own fashion weeks to include stylish natives in their own mini-metropolitan areas.

I love a good event for a good cause and even more so when it can benefit the community. Fashion Week of Rochester does just that. The annual event brings awareness and raises money for The Center of Youth which provides services to young people including counseling, shelter and educational resources.

This year, they are kicking off their first casting call for 2015! Now hold on ladies, your turn will come but this one’s for the boys but I’m sure you’re welcomed to lend a helping hand ;D.

Check out the deets below and tell your hottest guy friends, cute kid brother and stylish dads to attend!
