Charleston Fashion Week will hold open model castings for the 2013 event at 2 p.m. today through Sunday at the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina, 20 Patriots Point Road, Mount Pleasant.

Some former Charleston Fashion Week models have gone on to join agencies and launch professional advertising careers.

All models cast for the 2013 event will train with model coach Michelle Wood, receive payment, a profile on the CFW website, and a gift bag valued at $500. In addition, each participating model selected to walk in a CFW runway show will be eligible for the Rock the Runway Model Competition.

Models under 18 are required to attend with a guardian. Applicants must meet the height requirements of 5 feet 7 inches (women, without heels) and 5 feet 10 inches (men). Height will be checked prior to each casting call and no one under the required height will be permitted to audition. For full rules and regulations, and other information, visit
