AMTI Showcase 2015


On Saturday, May 2, Angie Sakla-Seymour, owner of Angie’s Models & Talent International, held her 16th annual AMTI showcase at the Canadian War Museum. Top talent agents and scouts from across Canada and all over the world, including UMM India, Vivienne Germany, Donna Models Tokyo, and Women Paris, lined the front row to see Angie’s impressive roster in hopes of finding the industry’s next big thing. Following the cocktail reception and dinner, singer and songwriter Maurice Moore kept the audience entertained with smooth vocals before Angie, draped in a custom Zarucci gown, took center stage to be our hostess for the evening.

Over 100 models and actors of all ages and ethnicities rocked the runway in featured looks provided exclusively by Bayshore Shopping Centre and Canadian designers such as Kania, David Dixon, Marcelle Benedicte, and Iman Nakhala. One of the night’s most memorable moments came when singer Michelle Treacy delivered a knockout performance of her single “Want It All,” while models strutted their stuff in the latest collection from Amy Scarlett.

Later on, Anomal Couture from Montreal heated things up with a playfully sexy collection.

Toward the end of the night, Angie awarded two $2500 scholarships to 18-year-old John-Alan Slachta and 22-year-old Phil Gregory. Both actors will get to attend acting workshops in Los Angeles taught by casting director Patrick Baca. John-Alan stars in the new Nickelodeon TV series MAKE IT POP, produced by Nick Cannon, while Phil (pictured below) was recently signed to AMTI four months ago. Soon afterward, Ottawa-based designer Zarucci presented the last collection of the night, bringing the show to a close.
