We all know that fashion, especially high- fashion industry is glamorous and loved by people around the world. However, how do you actually become the next Kate Moss or Kendall Jenner?
Do’s and Dont’s
If you are unaware of the ‘dos’ and ‘dont’s’ of the industry, becoming a full time model can be difficult. If you have existing connections in the modelling field, then it can be a matter of few meetings and knocking on agency doors. However if you don’t, then it can be a challenge regardless of your looks and experience.
Here, we have listed some useful tips and pointers to help you in achieving your goal of becoming a professional fashion, commercial or promotional model.
Look out for a legit and reputable promotional or commercial model agency
Whilst you are on the search for your perfect agency, you might come across companies who simply just want your money. They might claim to have strong connections in the business, but will ask for a joining fee or pre-payment for photographs. Remember, you should never pay to join a legitimate modelling agency. Do your research! There are various resources available on Google that will list the best agencies in your city/country. Another great way is to simply read Google reviews and use websites such as Trustpilot and Glassdoor. Again, Googling the agency name with the word ‘review’ at the end will do the trick.
Get more exposure
If you have just started out with a mission to enter the industry and making it big, getting most experienced and reliable agents and scouts is a wide choice. Ask friends or relatives already in the industry for some reliable contacts. Word of mouth still is the best way into any industry or job.
Know your industry
Knowing the best market for your particular appearance is the best thing you can do to have a successful career. In other words, don’t try to fit a square peg in a round hole. Look for a reliable commercial agency who specialises in your looks, experience or talents. They will be able to give you the best support or point you in the right direction to suit your appearance and looks! There are 100’s of agencies in London alone and a simple online research should give you a good list. Make a list of the top agencies you are going to approach and get started.
