Due to overwhelming demand of models interested in modeling and CCFW Dancer opportunities in Chicago Couture Fashion Week 2012 entitled "Fall for Haute Couture in a Season Full of Greetings", CCFW Inc. extending enrollment of its Fall 2012 Model/Dancer Boot Camp training sessions to give free-lance fashion models an opportunity to audition before our exhibiting Designers to walk in the shows as well as dancers the opportunity to become a CCFW Dancer to open our shows.

After these dates, we will not be accepting any more freelance models or dancers as rehearsals will commence.
As a free-lance model, in order to be granted an audition with our designers, we require that you register for our model boot camp training class. Although we are using Professional Agency Represented Fashion Models at our Exhibiting Designer's request we are allowing free-lance models the opportunity to audition for or exhibiting designers only after they attend our Model boot camp. In order to ensure the integrity and professionalism of our showcases, we do this to make sure our designers have models that can actually work a runway and move gracefully. After all, our clients are paying our production company to showcase their designs in the best possible light to fashion buyers and our high caliber audience. If you are chosen by our exhibiting designers you will walk our shows. You will be compensated for the show you walk in as well as given a certificate and gift bag for your participation if you are chosen.
Our Registration for our Model Boot Camp Training class is now open. . Please Note: There is a $50 registration fee. The training consists of 2 classes. This will give you the opportunity to audition before the agency represented models have their casting call with our exhibiting designers; as our casting calls takes place one month before the show. Our final boot camp will be taking place on 11/17/12-11/18/12 from 3pm-5pm.. We will be having our class at a Dance Studio on North Lincoln in Chicago.
