About the Opportunity

Indiana Fashion Week (INDFW) will take place this summer 2023 in Indianapolis, IN. In preparation, we are beginning the casting process for runway models. To create a diverse & inclusive runway experience, we are accepting applications from models of all ethnicities, sizes, heights, gender identities, and abilities. The ideal model is one who has experience walking in runway shows. As well, they are professional in presentation and communication.


About the Platform

INDFW is a community-driven initiative of Indiana Fashion Foundation, a nonprofit organization that thrives on the generosity of the individuals and organizations in our community. As a result, participation in INDFW is currently on a voluntary basis. 

Note: We do not cover expenses for travel or accommodations.

Comp Card Submission & Review

Models interested in walking during INDFW will be required to submit an application and submit their most recent comp card to be reviewed by the style team. (If you do not have a comp card, please, check out this video to learn will how to create one.)

Casting Invitation

After they have reviewed all submissions, the style team will create a shortlist of models who will be invited to attend one of two in-person castings, which will be held in Indianapolis in the months of July & August 2023. 


  • Wear a fitted solid black t-shirt, slim solid black pants, and solid black shoes

  • Bring 1 hard copy of your most recent comp card with your contact information (cell and e-mail) and your current stats, including your name, height (in bare feet), measurements (bust, waist, hips), dress size (if applicable), shoe size.

  • Bring a pair of black high heels (if applicable)

  • If under age 18, bring a parent or guardian to the casting.

Final Selections

Following the in-person casting, final model selections will be made by designers and/or style team. Please note that selected models may receive notification as late as one (1) week prior to the scheduled show date.
