Ottawa Fashion: Angie’s Models (AMTI) Showcase 2012

Picture this: Gorgeous models after gorgeous models walk the illuminated runway set against the military landscape of cold metal machine guns, battle tanks, fighter jets at Canada’s War Museum.

This is one showcase that is indeed deserving of one big fashion salute.

And salute they did. Agents travelled from London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo and New York City to attend AMTI’s Showcase 2012.

Each year, Angie’s International Model and Talent Showcase attracts over 1,000 agents, designers, business owners, and publicists – making it one of the largest events of its kind in North America. While we are still waiting for the official runway photos, we’d like to share with you the night’s around the scene photos showcasing the city’s most notable, experts in their respective fields, who came out to show their support for one of North America’s most recognized Model and Talent Agency – AMTI

The night was indeed a showcase of celestial proportion – fashion, talent, design and production – all was executed in such fabulous fashion. Among AMTI’s success stories, Herieth Paul opened for powerhouse Burberry at London Fashion Week, and Mallory Richards and Daria lit up the runway at New York Fashion Week. Both have graced the pages of Vogue and ELLE.
