The windy city once again will be the backdrop for the most anticipated fashion event in Chicago: Latino Fashion Week.  Celebrating its fifth year as the only Latino Fashion Week in the United States, the Latino Fashion Week (LFW) organization and Arquette & Associates LLC Talent Agency will be hosting a model search on Saturday, September 10, 2011.  LFW will also be looking for the new fresh face for Macy’s quinceanera line, created by celebrity designer Jorge Perez De La Habana, which will premiere at the Latino Fashion Week in November.

Lake Street.  Open call hours will be from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm and agency models will be seen from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm.  Previous casting calls have led local Latino/a models to be picked up by popular modeling agencies.  For more information, please call 773-733-7152 or visit the LFW website for requirements at www.latinofashionwk.com.
