THANK YOU!

From founder & director Jimmy Ramey:

We here at Fusion want to thank everyone who has been involved in this glorious show for the past 17 years. This year, Fusion will not be taking place. Details could not be worked out. Over the course of Fusion’s run, we have had the privilege of witnessing true fashion stars develop their skills, own their talent, and succeed in the fashion arena.

It’s been a true honor and I will be forever grateful for having a small part in the success of so many. Fusion brought school spirit, unbelievable talent, hard work, and art together. It was exciting. The energy it brought to me and so many will stay with me forever.

If Fusion doesn’t return, I just want to say, again, THANK YOU for the support, love, passion, dedication, and assistance. So many put in so much time, and I will forever be in awe.

Nothing but love,
Jimmy Ramey
Fusion Director

Model in Fusion 2016

Attention models! Want to be part of a history-making show that features the most promising fashion talent in the country? Come to our model casting in November! Details coming soon. Check back here for more information, and follow us on Facebook to get the latest details.

General details >>

Prepare to tear up the runway…! Each year we hold a casting for the models that make our designers’ clothing come to life on the runway. All models must be 18 or older and present on the day of the casting with a photo and (for ladies) a pair of heels to walk in. Unfortunately we do not accept online applications! Men are welcome to audition as we feature both womenswear and menswear in the show. Models who have walked our runway have ended up on the covers of magazines and in America’s Next Top Model competitions, to say the least. Don’t miss this chance to show us what you’ve got. Stay tuned for more information.
