About 60 models are being chosen for this year's iD Dunedin
The first casting call in Dunedin on Sunday attracted about
35 men and women already signed to Ali McD Agency.
Co-director Darryl McNamara said another 50 or so models were
expected to attend the second and final casting this weekend.
This year, the agency had an exclusive contract to supply
models for the 15th anniversary iD Dunedin Fashion Show, and
10th anniversary iD International Emerging Designer Awards.
Models will also be used for associated iD events.
They will be joined on the catwalk by 10 Chinese models from
the Shanghai University of Engineering Science, who were
invited to be a part of iD 2014 through a partnership with
Mr McNamara said there was a lot of ''fresh talent'' among
the models vying for iD selection this year.
Last year's search to find the fresh new face of iD generated
new signings for the agency, including the winner of the
competition, Gore teenager Krue Love.
Some models had already been confirmed for iD, having
