AMTI has been in the business of grooming models for stardom for over two decades (having found a home in the heart of downtown Ottawa in the mid- 90’s).


But when does a model really become a model?


It takes more than just the right coaching and de- velopment to set a model’s career in motion. She or he needs exposure – to be recognized, to be known. And there is no better way to achieve this than to be featured in AMTI’s annual gala show- case. This event welcomes model scouts and talent agents from all over the world to attend and pick their faves as the hot, young hopefuls present their potential down the runway. For the past two years the AMTI Showcase has taken place at Ottawa’s War Museum – a venue unlike any other, featuring a unique blend of sleek, modern architecture and industrial edge.


OFW and AMTI share a key common ground. Aside from the fashion itself, these two events have creat- ed a platform (no pun intended) that has the power to catapult the career of a model. Aspiring models, who play their struts right, can end up representing Ottawa on catwalks worldwide, thanks to the ex- posure gained from being featured in one of these shows. Fave sat down for an interview with two of Ottawa’s top fashion advocates to hear about how they got their start in the business, how they’ve contributed to the Ottawa fashion scene, and what exciting endeavours the future holds for them.
