This competition has now closed!

This is your chance to be a catwalk model! BBC Blast has given 10 young people the chance to design a fashion collection to show on the catwalk during London Fashion Week and they want some of you to model in their show!

The collection is called ''1.Wo/Man (1woman 1 man)'' and they're looking for 10 girls and 5 boys with the confidence to represent the label and wear the clothes in a real catwalk show.

You don't have to be a tall size zero type to enter; they're looking for interesting looking people with character who reflect the diversity of real teenagers in the UK. It's not just for girls so spread the word to any boys you think might fit the bill.

It's easy to enter, just email us at with 2 clear pictures of yourself, one of just your face and one full length. Add your name, age and contact details and keep your fingers crossed! Your pictures will only be seen by our judges and won't appear on the Blast site so don't be shy.

Check out the progress of the 1.Wo/Man team:
