GRAMERCY— Calling all women 30 and over! On Saturday, April 14th from 10am to 3pm, Wilhelmina will hold an open casting call for older models. The grand prize winner gets a contract with the agency, a fashion feature spread in Oprah's magazine O, a $1000 swim wardrobe from Miraclesuit, and $1000 gift card from Macy's. If interested, stop by 300 Park Avenue with a $20 entry fee in hand. [RackedWire]
BRYANT PARK—Writes a tipster: "Around the World Fashion Publications on 40th, across from Bryant Park, is quite possibly going to close that location. Every time I go in there they stress their 37th Street location, and the last time the man at the cashier explained to me why (rising rents might force them out)." [Racked Inbox]
