Can You Become a Model?






New models often ask themselves whether they have what it takes to become a model

You are likely to hear that to be a model you need to be beautiful, tall and slender with perfect proportions. Now this is certainly true for high fashion models, where designers want one type of model that they feel shows off their designs in the best way.

However, if you do not fit this criteria, don’t despair as there are many other areas that you can work in successfully and lucratively as a model. The modelling industry needs all different shapes and sizes. It ranges from the models who are required for the runways of Paris and Milan to those being seen in the background of TV commercials. You need to find the right fit for you and your place in the industry. To help you with this we have a model application you need to complete, and remember as with most things in life there are always exceptions.

Modelling South Africa (PTY) Ltd. vs. Modelling Agencies

The first thing to understand about a modelling agency is that they have clients that has the need for a specific type of models, most dominating; runway, commercial and editorial models. That is why most agencies are looking at height and does not accept anyone. It does not mean that there are no agencies who are looking at other types of models and that every model must be a certain height.

We are not a modelling agency, our focus as explained above is to identify, educate and manage models. It is our main objective to place our models in an agency or find them a platform where they could launch a professional modelling career. It is vital for each and every model to complete our process before they can be managed by us. The modelling industry is very hard to pierce into. With our skills and expertise we do all what is needed on behalf of our members.
