Who does their little turn on the catwalk? The Kaua‘i girls do, and with a lot of style.

Several aspiring models took the opportunity to participate in the Fashion Boot Camp at Kaua‘i Community College’s OCET building May 15. The event was put together by the organizers of the Kaua‘i Fashion Weekend.

Renowned fashion photographer Natasha Kertes, Kaua‘i model Alanah Agustin and fashion designer Sha Ali Ahmad, of Ahmad Couture, shared with more 30 people, including about a dozen young girls, their experiences in the fashion world.

Local photographers Patrick Kelley and Mel Manuel also talked about their craft.
