The Trafford Centre has partnered with inclusive talent agency, Zebedee, for open call casting in July.

The 'ground breaking' partnership aims to celebrate individuality and inclusivity and representation in the fashion industry.

The open call welcomes people with disabilities, visible differences, unique and alternative appearances, older models aged 35+, and those who are part of the LGBTQIA community. 

The casting event will take place just outside Superdrug, on Lower Peel Avenue at The Trafford Centre on Friday July 12 from 11am to 7pm.

Zoe Proctor, Director and Founder of Zebedee Talent said: “This event is designed to be accessible and inviting, providing a platform for everyone to shine.

"Whether you're an aspiring model or someone who wants to make a statement about the beauty of diversity, we can’t wait to meet you at the Trafford Centre on 12th July!”

Simon Layton, Centre Director at Trafford Centre, added: “At Trafford Centre, we want to celebrate every individual and champion diversity, so this partnership with Zebedee Talent is a match made in heaven.

"I’m excited to see our upcoming fashion campaign come to life with a myriad of diverse, Northern talent.

The Trafford Centre says this partnership is a 'first' for the shopping Centre industry.

The selected winners will receive a contract from Zebedee Talent Agency and will become one of the faces of The Trafford Centre's autumn fashion campaign.
