Be on Rip The Runway 2012
Rip The Runway is a popular fashion event broadcast on BET. Every year Rip The Runway holds a fashion event that showcases ethnic models on the catwalk. The show has in past years held a model casting call to select amateur models to walk the catwalk in New York.
The show uses both male and female models and though most of the models are African American, they do use a few models of other ethnicities. The models wear fashions that are created by the designers the show features, usually a mix of established and up and coming designers. Last year the featured designers were Rachel Roy, WISB, Man Vs. Machine, Tennille
White, LaQuan Smith and Lila Nikole.
Rip The Runway also focuses on music and has musical performances by top artists. Rip The Runway combines live music, a live audience and a fashion event all broadcast as a BET special.
