The Final Leg of the Model Search

Last weekend saw the final leg of our Model Search with Premier and House of Fraser. We've spent the last three months going up and down the country on the look out for the new faces of Religion, to front our AW13 campaign.

The winners will receive a year contract at Premier Model Management, an £800 Religion shopping spree and they will represent Religion for all of AW13.

We were in our Shoreditch High Street store this weekend and Project Fresh Socks were spinnin the decks, rockin Religion and bringing lots of potential models to the store!

The winners are going to be announced at an exclusive event on 12.12.12.

Religion & Premier Model Search

The Religion and Premier Model Search kicked off at the start of September, and since then we have been travelling the country, stopping in at selected House of Fraser stores to scout the best model talent that we could find. We’ve also had a huge response online and the emails from gorgeous guys and girls have been coming through thick and fast.

We're searching for the next face of Religion - it could be you!
As we’ve spotted such brilliant talent so far, we’ve decided to extend our final weekend of scouting. We are now going to be hunting for the next face of Religion this weekend from the following locations:
Saturday 24th November 1-5pm - Portobello Road Store: 257, Portobello Road, Kensington, W11 1LR. 0207 727 3384

Religion in Norway

Religion is taking over - one country at a time. We launched in Norway earlier this year, selling with Ventus. We caught up with the girls in the Ventus office to see how things are going and what they love about Religion:

Tell us a bit about your showroom:
Our showroom offers a mix of both sport fashion and fashion for real fashionistas! In that way, we can provide our customers with the most popular down jackets while at the same time being the place to go to for edgy, fun, elegant and on-trend fashion! Religion is very different from our other Scandinavian and French brands, and it is what makes our customers extra excited when they step into our showroom!

What is your favourite item for Religion AW12?
We love the jackets! The leather jacket is on our wishlist…

Which of this seasons trends are your favourite?
Puffy textured jumpers and oversized coats worn over maxi-dresses! Or harem trousers in printed silk themed with a cool bomber jacket.

What are you wearing today?
We are wearing Religion ss13! Marianne, the “parchment” dress with the high cut front (B113DTD38), and a biker-style leather jacket from Italian Dekker. Rikke is looking superhot in the short yellow “cut-seem” dress (Religion ss13) and Topshop flats!

Which Norwegian celebs would you want to see in Religion?
Ray Kay, the famous producer, is definitely a Religion type of guy! He’s already worn Religion to major events and he rocks it! On the female side… we have thought about Marion Ravn. She’s a singer and a rock-chick, who would represent the brand very well!

Ray Kay wears Religion

What would your go to Religion outfit be?
It is already the parchment dress from SS13! And we all love the leather jackets and the printed T-shirts…

We Love: The Lynch Jacket

The Religion Lynch Jacket is the King of leathers. Distressed leather in a classic biker shape is scattered with hard-as-nails studs which are perfect for the edgy AW12 look. What's more, we challenge you to find a leather as soft as this. It's garnered a range of celebrity fans and the latest star to sport the jacket is Demi Lovato.

Demi wears her Lynch with red lips and a red dress - finished with a glossy brunette top knot.

Zip details are on each cuff, plus a small envelope pocket is on the front.

Angel Haze wore the jacket with a more dressed down vibe, paired with grey skinnies and the Voodoo Jumper.

Nina Nesbitt wore the Lynch with a chunky red knit.

We're in love with the scattered stud details! Buy the Lynch in a Religion store or online.
