TORONTO, ON — On Sunday March 27, Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week, better known as |FAT|, invites men and women of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities to audition for a chance to rock the runway for over 50 designers at |FAT| 2011, taking place April 26-29. Auditions take place this Sunday between 12 and 6 p.m. at 60 Atlantic Avenue in Liberty Village. |FAT| will welcome 200 of Toronto’s most passionate, diverse and engaging beauties to play a special role in [FAT] 2011.

|FAT| prides itself on its progressive and unconventional approach to beauty by encouraging diversity on the catwalk and showcasing models who are true representations of the men and women in our city. While a kick-ass strut is still the key requirement, |FAT| encourages models who can engage the public and inject their personalities into the clothing.

2011 will mark the sixth edition of Toronto Alternative Arts and Fashion Week. With this year’s theme titled “Fashion Schematics”, FAT reinterprets the messages, systems, schemes and symbols inherent in the notion of fashion.

“When it comes to the runway, models are the essential messengers who communicate the designers’ vision. They give meaning to the clothing and depict narratives to the audience through their personas,“ says Vanja Vasic, Director of |FAT|

This year models are invited to walk in over 50 collections from April 26th – 29th for designers from across Canada and abroad, during four nights of |FAT|’s multi-sensory experiences.
