date Tue, Jun 8, 2010 at 2:17 PM

Hello there,

My name is Darren Winston of "What to Wear Magazine®" in London UK.

You are receiving this email because we viewed your portfolio on Model Mayhem and we think you'd be an asset to the event this year.

What to wear Magazine is looking to relaunch its monthly issue to the UK market and also a possible international publication.

We are looking to hire models with little or no experience as our recent survey showed that the reason magazine sales are dropping in the UK is because the same old faces are in rotation in the we are looking to bring in something total different and unique by basically bringing models with different looks and ethnicity who have little or no experience in the field and make them into supermodels.

The event is scheduled for 5days and is set to commence on the 30th of June 2010 to the 4th of July 2010 in London UK.

You'll be paid £6000 GBP for the 5 day event.

We are paying all models this amount as sign of guarantee to our intended subscribers that we are here to stay,so that way they will feel comfortable to invest or subscribe to us.

Do get back to me if you require more details or have any questions.

Looking forward to working with you.
