July 1, 2012 (Tijuana) -– A great opportunity for models is coming up. Innovative fashion designers are looking for female models that can showcase the border region’s dynamic style. There will be a casting call on Saturday, July 7, in Tijuana. The selected models will star in an international fashion show on Oct. 14 during the conference called Tijuana Innovadora.


It’s a high-profile conference that presents some of the world’s leading innovators in technology, science and culture and draws international media coverage.

The selected models will have an opportunity to work with emerging and established designers, such as Ximena Valero and Daniela Villa, with roots in the border region.
Valero is known for stylish “transformable” fashions that can be worn up to 25 different ways. She’s won design honors in New York and Miami Fashion Weeks as well as in international competitions in Mexico and the Caribbean. A former designer for Victoria’s Secret, Valero has her own studio in Los Angeles.
Villa, meanwhile, was one of 15 emerging designers from across Mexico recently selected to participate in a competition sponsored by Elle magazine. Their designs were presented in a program on E! Entertainment and shown across Latin America.
The casting seeks female models, at least 5 feet 8 inches tall, with slim build, and with personality and great attitude. Previous runway experience preferred.
The bilingual casting will be held Saturday, July 7, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 4 to 6 p.m., at the Tijuana Innovadora office at Paseo de los Héroes Boulevard #10093, in Plaza Oh in the Río zone (adjacent to Jaggers Sports Bar & Grill).

The “InnovaModa” fashion show is on Oct. 14, a day focused on Strategic Design, which presents innovative designers from across the region and world. One of them is Carlos Sánchez, who works in Europe for Maserati, Ferrari and other high-end auto firms.
The conference consists of keynote addresses, panel discussions and workshops. There’s an expo that exhibits the cutting-edge products made in the Tijuana region, and a fair that highlights innovative small businesses in Baja California. All sessions are in English and Spanish.
