New York, NY, November 11, 2014 (Newswire.com) - East Coast Starz’ bi-annual flagship event, Take 8 is only two weeks away. The fashion event for kids and teens will take place November 15-16, 2014 at the Hanover Marriott in Whippany, New Jersey.
The weekend, which is almost completely sold out, brings girls together from across the country to celebrate fashion, acquire team work and interpersonal skills, and build lifelong friendships. Take 8 also provides participants with invaluable experience in front of the camera and on the runway, and exposure to industry agents, photographers and designers.
"Take 8 will be our largest event to date. We are extremely fortunate to have an impressive roster of industry insiders who will join us in November, providing the girls with hands on experience in photo shoots and on the runway."
Stacie Fitzgerald, Co-Director of East Coast Starz
The fall/winter event continues to invite its young participants to explore the world around them, by placing them in several groups, representing major fashion hubs around the world. The girls will be asked to research the different cities, and style the group outfits in a way that reflects the current fashion style in the city they represent. These pint sized supermodels in training will then strut the latest in children’s couture from around the globe down the glowing pink runway. The program also continues its community involvement with One Kid Can Change the World, and will present the girls with a hands on philanthropic challenge during the event.
“I am so excited to see the number of kids that have registered this year,” says Lauren Handler, co-director of East Coast Starz. “We have been welcomed by the Tri-State area families with open arms, and it’s really heartwarming. We believe that the runway builds confidence, and strengthens a child's self-esteem in her most important formative years, and it is so gratifying to see so many of our kids join us year after year for this.”
