Last week, Eye-Con Couture (a chic, trendy boutique in Midtown Memphis) hosted a casting call for “Eye-Candies”. In celebration of their 5th Year Anniversary, Eye-Con Couture was in search of an eclectic group of girls interested in becoming a part of the Eye-Con brand.
I sat down with the owner, Tanyel Hobson-Walton, to get more details behind the campaign and it sounds like an opportunity of a lifetime for all participants. A statuesque beauty, Tanyel has been involved with the modeling industry since she was 14, so she understands the work that goes into having a successful modeling career. She’s done runway, print, and has experience in theater, so she knows it’s about more than just taking cute photos.
Looking for the total package (beauty, brains, & personality), but not from the typical “model”, her goal is to select a diverse group of girls who, with a little touch of glamour and training, can transform into an “Eye-Con”. Not only will those selected as Eye-Candies be part of Eye-Con’s personal brand, but this is the chance to be seen on a global scale, with a calendar, online and print exposure. With her vast knowledge of the industry, the models involved would be wise to soak up any and all knowledge that comes their way.
Photography Ziggy Mack was on deck to snap a few photos at the call:
The chosen Eye-Candies will be revealed this Saturday, June 26 at their Shopping Party Event (visit their website for more store information http://www.eye-concouture.com/). Swing by to see who was chosen, and check out their fabulous collections!
