“Tenerife Fashion Beach Costa Adeje” organised by the Cabildo and the Adeje Council, is widening the net in a search for new local talent. The event, which brings together tourism and fashion, is on October 15th and 20th.
New Face casting will be offering a chance to 20 young people from the island to take their first step into the world of professional modelling. The lucky 20 will be offered a photography session and take part in one of the designer shows during the event.
Efraín Medina, Cabildo vice president, said these kinds of projects were welcome as they allowed the fashion sector generate new commercial opportunities and also brought the textile industry closer to the public.
Adeje’s tourism councillor Ermitas Moreira said that it was important as “every year we are looking at new ideas for the zone and the new casting would create new promotional opportunities while also giving young people from the area a start in the fashion business.” She added that it was important to remember that the Tenerife Fashion Beach Costa Adeje promoted both the sector and the destination and the fashion business itself attracted visitors and was in line with the top class hotels in the zone. Last year a wide selection of national and international designers used the event to show their clothes in the spectacular beach setting.
The casting for new models will be at the Hard Rock Hotel in Adeje, on October 15th from 4pm to 7pm.
