As I uncurl from winters’ upper hand,
a sense of freedom, spills on to this land.
Long shadows become shortened by its spell,
a multitude of life, awakens, from where I dwell.

Stretching, in the warmth of air, hesitating for a while,
noticing no frigidness, nor taunt, of any icy smile.
Slender and slowly slithering, bursting from my shell,
I am filled with a new life, overpowering winter’s quell.

Brown, to green, a vastness of sun streams down,
from bare to bud, shedding, my protective gown.
All around, the ground, from where I graciously spring,
this spring, awakening, all, that I am destined to bring.

Poem by Joe Coe



The FASHION TELLER HOUSE is looking for creative and imaginative models who have killer styling skills. We have created two styling styles to choose from: “SPRING AWAKENING” and “DOLLHOUSE”. You can cast for one or both styling challenges but we can only pick the top two looks from each styling theme to join The FASHION TELLER HOUSE.

For our next book, we want to capture the beauty of spring as nature awakens from the deep freeze of winter. From blooming flowers to beautiful butterflies and insects, each model must represent and capture the beauty and splendor of spring. The styling must awaken the senses and invoke the imagination.


1. Style a creative and unique look that captures “SPRING Awakening”. It can be a blooming flower or an insect as long as it represents the beauty of spring. Here are some pictures to inspire you:

2. Take 2 pictures (snapshots are fine) of your styling. One headshot and one body shot. May use photoshop but it must show your styling clearly. NO MORPH!

3. Make a notecard with title: SPRING AWAKENING PUBLIC CASTING: (Name).  Put a styling card and the pictures in the notecard and send it to RicoRacer Flux by the deadline: MARCH 1, 2014 at 12 Noon SLT.

4. The top 2 looks will be invited to be a model for FASHION TELLER HOUSE. If invited, they must agree to the terms and regulations of being a Fashion Teller member: http://thefashionteller.com/our-staff/


If you are a photographer and would like to work for The Fashion Teller House, please send a notecard with an example of your work or a link to your blog/flickr to RicoRacer Flux.

Thank You and Good Luck.

Spring Awakening
