Become a fashion model or catwalk model
Ever wondered what it takes to become a fashion or catwalk model? Well here are our top 5 tips for any budding Naomi Campbell or Baptiste Giabiconi!
1. Modelling Agency
You need to register with as many modelling and promotional agencies as possible. The more agencies you register with the better chance you have of finding work. Most modelling agencies will have an application form of their own to use.
2. Modelling Portfolio
Put together a professional portfolio with professional pictures. Be sure to include a mixture of pictures, not just what you think is your “best side,” Include an up to date CV to send to the modelling agency along with the professional pictures detailing any experience you have.
3. Flexible Models
Be prepared for some unsociable and long hours. Being a fashion model is not instant fame with sports cars and weekend trips to Monaco! You have to be prepared to work and work very hard. Not all fashion shows are going to be on your door step either so you need to be prepared to travel to events. You are unlikely to be walking down the catwalk with Kate Moss in Milan from day one so consider all assignments. Any job is going to earn you valuable experience.
4. Reliable Fashion Models
The modelling agency or PR agency that you have registered will look at getting you work. The moment you get that call for a shoot or fashion show then you are 100% professional and reliable. If you are late or a no show then the fashion agency is unlikely to use you again as you are representing them as well as yourself.
5. Enjoy it!
Fashion modelling, catwalk modelling, promotional modelling or whatever modelling arena you are looking to get into is a job like no other. Each day represents a new and exciting adventure for you to grasp with both hands. Lets face it, its what other job is going to pay you to look fantastic!
