With the approaching date, comes a variety of questions for old and new models.
You can find out everything you need to know below.


Q: Do I still have to audition if I already auditioned and made it to casting in the Spring?

A: If you’ve walked for Denver Fashion Week in Fall’23 and Spring ’24 attend the casting. Everyone else must re-audition.

Q: When will I know if I made it to casting?

A: Right away — Runway Producer, Nikki Strickler, will let you know if you made it to the casting as soon as you’re done walking.

Q: What do I need to wear?

A: DFW recommends wearing something form-fitting so they can see your silhouette. A good example is a black fitted tank or t-shirt, skinny or fitted jeans. If auditioning in heels, DFW recommends at least three inches tall. Designers prefer to see you with NATURAL hair and MINIMAL makeup. DFW also recommends avoiding jewelry that will make loud noises as you walk — loud and excessive jewelry is extremely distracting.

Q: What time do I need to be there?

A: Sunday, July 14, 2024

* DFW models are all-inclusive, we don’t cast talent based on race, color, religion, sexual orientation, height, body type, or age!

Q: What’s the difference between auditions and casting?

A: Auditions are for production to view your walk so auditions don’t necessarily mean you will be walking in DFW. Designers select their models who will be walking in the show at casting.

Q: When is casting?

A: DFW Production will be sending out emails a week after auditions.

Q: Do I need to bring anything with me?

A: Comp cards are recommended and heels — everything else is up to you.

Q: Can I bring someone with me?

A: No guests are allowed for models over the age of 16. Other guests will have to wait outside.
