you should contact the local fashion week producers in your area and ask to participate as a dresser when the shows start..
you dont need special skills, over here its usually fashion school kids that work as dressers during the shows for free.. just contact the local organisers and get some feedback straight from them

good luck and welcome to tFS

being a dresser isnt very exciting but its good if you're dressing somebody you like, if u know what i mean

at my last uni we were all made to dress at a show and it was ok except i got this really bitchy french girl who thought she was fantastic and i kept touching her boob accidently when putting her top on and she kept saying i was doing it on purpose
yea right, more like i was distracted by the hot guys standing next to you

in paris i think there is a dressing company because during paris fashion week some dressers asked who i was because they said theyd seen me at every show

from my personal experience dressing is a horrible job (we had to do it as part of our course at graduate fashion week). arsey models who just stand there and expect you to do EVERYTHING, seriously, sweaty cramped conditions, being shouted at by the organizers and designers, hah but thats just my opinion!

.. said it wannadisco, most people hate to assist in dressing for shows and i wouldnt blame them..
worst of all is after the show, when there are clothes, shoes and accessories thrown all over backstage and most dressers are vanished..

designer assistant team need to deal with all the utter mess themselves..
