Tired of seeing skinny human model after skinny human model in fashion magazines and ad campaigns? Well, back in 2010, United Bamboo started doing their part to bring more diversity to modeling with their first ever, groundbreaking Cat Calendar, in which real cats modeled the label’s fall 2010 collection tailored to fit their fabulously unique shapes.
We also believe this was when the world realized that fashion and cats just go really, really well together and a trail was blazed for cool cat ladies everywhere. United Bamboo continued with the cat calendar in 2011 and even let us co-host a party to celebrate it. Sadly, they skipped 2012 (my 2011 one is still up–the dates may be wrong but those cats didn’t get any less cute). So, we couldn’t be more excited to announce that the calendar will return for 2013 and the label is holding an open casting call (on the internet, where cats belong) for cat models! Here are all the details, copied and pasted from a release:
Did You Miss Us This Year?
We’re casting for our 2013 calendar and looking for 12 of the fanciest of felines.
Photoshoot is scheduled for June 9th in NYC, day and time TBD.
We will make our selects and email you information on the shoot.
We’ll keep our cat claws crossed for you!
