ABOUT TORRID MODEL SEARCH 2018:

Torrid, the fastest-growing plus size fashion brand in America announces their 3rd annual Torrid Model Search. Last year, Torrid had more than 10,000 gorgeous and confident plus size women apply through online submissions and live castings. Torrid’s message is simple: to empower women of all sizes to unapologetically “wear what you love.”

Online casting submissions kicked off officially in May on Torrid.com and will be followed this summer with live casting events in four major U.S. markets including Los Angeles, Seattle, Houston, and Atlanta. Torrid is also bringing their search to Canada for the first time, with a live casting in Toronto, Ontario.

Also new for this year’s search, Torrid has curated a panel of judges who will appear at select live casting events and advise on the top ten finalist selection. Torrid has tapped the following judges: Ashley Nell Tipton, influencer & Project Runway winner, Priscilla Ono, celebrity makeup artist and Candice Huffine, supermodel and face of Torrid’s Fall 2017 #TheseCurves denim campaign.

"I am so excited to be part of the Torrid Model Search. As the first plus-size designer on Project Runway to win with full-figured models, I know what [the plus size] industry is looking for!" says Ashley Nell Tipton. "This is a full-circle life moment for me. I always wanted to be a model for Torrid and now knowing I will be a judge is a dream come true."

Kate Horton, Torrid SVP and General Merchandising Manager, says, “We’re so excited to be kicking off our third annual Torrid Model Search nationwide—and for the first time ever, we’re heading north to Canada! It’s so inspiring to see thousands of beautiful women show up in amazing clothes, walk down a runway, have their pictures taken and make their dreams come true. Like everything we do at Torrid, this event’s all about them. To be part of such a fun, empowering journey really is an honor.”
The winner, to be revealed in January 2018, will join the ranks of Torrid models and brand ambassadors Lyanna Lynette and Maria Gimena (2016 and 2017 Torrid model search winners). “I’m very excited to have the opportunity to share my experience with the Torrid model hopefuls because I’ve been there,” says Maria Gimena. “The live castings were such a fun atmosphere and Torrid made it so easy for us to be ourselves! I can't wait to see all the beautiful women show off their curves.”
One lucky winner will receive the title, “Face of Torrid 2018,” complete with a Torrid modeling contract and wardrobe. The winner will host Torrid store openings and events as a brand ambassador, star in seasonal fashion campaigns, and appear on the brand’s social media channels throughout the year.
