Calling all aspiring tween and teen fashion designers-slash-reality stars: Are you willing to "outlast, out-wit and out-fit" your peers for cold hard cash, an internship with a major designer and a scholarship at a top fashion school? If so, a "major cable network" is holding its first casting call this Saturday for a new TV show called Threads, set to star future designers between the ages of 8 to 16. It's happening from 11am to 2pm at The Sewing Studio in Pasadena; get more deets and apply here and start practicing your epic made-for-TV meltdown right now. [Racked Inbox]
