I am heading to the city in a few weeks to audition for fashion week.  I was wondering what everyone's best tips are for the catwalk...models...togs...designers...

Everyone's input is welcome smile

Set up a full length mirror at the end of a hallway, hop onto youtube, watch, strut and learn. Ask friends/family members how they feel you are doing - is your face too strained? Do you keep looking at the floor? Are your feet too far apart? (If it's bridal, go slow and graceful!) That would be the free way to do it - you could hire a professional to teach you if you think it will be worth it.

(I see you are my height - I don't often have luck securing professional runway work because of it, but local designers and stores will still let me walk for them! Maybe you will have more luck on that front.)

I had runway teaching from a professional, but soooo long ago. 

If you get in the show they give you a free class...just wanna make sure I do well enough to get hired.
