Have you got what it takes to strut your stuff down the catwalk?

Then head to DanceEast this Saturday to be in with a chance of taking part in the town’s first ever Ipswich Fashion Week later this year.

The week, which runs from October 8-12, will celebrate the season’s must-have trends and where people can go to recreate the looks.

Model casting sessions will be held from 10am to 5pm on Saturday at DanceEast and organiser Pam Davis is hoping that more than one hundred people will try out. Miss Davis, who owns style company, Fashion Candy, based on Ipswich Waterfront, has taken on the challenge of running the inaugural event in partnership with Ipswich Central.

She said: “We are casting anybody over the age of 16 up to 60.
