Behind the scenes at the casting for BGBGMAXAZRIA show Spring 2013 at NYFW
BCBG is the first major show every fashion season and all eyes from within the modeling industry will carefully watch which new faces emerge from this show.
Here’s the procedure:
1. Models have to sign in with security at the building lobby
2. They then ride the elevator up 18 flights
3. Models sign in at the front desk and give out their comp card to the BCBG staff

4. BCBG staff then organized the comp cards into stacks and assign a number to each model. Models are asked in on a first come first serve basis.
5. BCBG really takes great care of the models providing them with board games to pass time and a BCBG model survival bag full of fashion magazines, cosmetics, Vitamin C, and even lip balm.
