Models:

We have built a list of over 1,000 models. This includes men, women, full figured to petite, both new and experienced. Once we receive your model requirements, we’ll do our best to recruit the models you need. We also advertise casting calls each month, and continuously recruit new models.

If you would like to bring your own models, you are welcome to do so. However, they must:

  • Be 21 or older

Photographers:

Our database includes over 100 Photographers of various skill levels, all of which have gone through a semi-rigorous registration Process. Photographers are also allowed to set up equipment to be able to spend 1 on 1 time shooting with outfitted Models. In order for a Photographer to shoot at Chance, they must first attend the event as a paid guest without shooting. For events such as the Swimsuit or Lingerie show, we require that Photographers have shot at least 2 previous Chance Events, and this is non-negotiable. For other events, we may make an exception depending on who the Photographer is and what their relationship to the Designer is. Please inquire further for details, or have your Photographer email Photographer@ActivateTheArts.com to register on their own.

Hair/MUA’s:

We ALWAYS welcome more Hair and Makeup people. The Hair and Makeup team is the first to be compensated after the show, and they share a percentage of Door Sales based on the number of heads completed during an event. However, all Hair and Makeup will be done in A) order of appearance on runway and B) time of Model arrival. If a Designer is bringing in their own Hair and Makeup Stylists, we require that those Stylists be willing to work with the other Models and Designers participating in this show.

Additional Staff:

Designers are allowed to bring in 2 extra staff if needed: 1 to help backstage with Dressing and Fittings, 1 to operate a Vending are if the Designer would like to do so. Staff need to be approved in advance by the staff team, please inquire if you may have any further staff needs.
