In 2011 a young and vibrant fashion-minded gal named Brianna Fleet, owner of ButterFly Entertainment, created a one-of-a-kind competition to help groom and grow the Austin modeling community. Every year the fashion community grows and there is a need to find new and fresh talent for fashion shows and events.
The Top Austin Model competition is a multi week competition where contestants compete in runway and photoshoots.
The first event starts on March 24 at Rock Rose Event Center in the Domain. This is an open casting call and all interested in competing are welcome to attend. Applicants who meet the minimum requirement will walk the runway in front of the judges. The final group will move on to the next competition.

Subsequent competitions will be held on April, 3 / 10 / 17 and 24th with the Finale scheduled for the April 28.
