Model Clothing


To model clothing is the name of the game and probably the main reason you wanted to become one in the first place - are we right?  To model clothing is to strut down the runway looking fab - no doubt, but it could also mean sitting down on a garden bench for editorial modelling, laying on a beach wearing the latest swimwear or using parts of your body to show off gloves or hats for catalogues.

The main aim for you is to reach the dizzy levels of catwalk and fashion modelling when they first start out, wanting to emulate the models they have admired on the TV or in fashion magazines. It is a great way to get your name remembered, especially if you are lucky enough to get into the high end of the model industry. This is where the money is but they do have very strict height and weight regulations in this category, so always be aware that rejection maybe just around the corner. This is a very competitive part of modelling with lots of your peers wanting to model clothes. But don't let this put you off if you are determined.

Don't forget that it's not all about fashion and there are so many different types of jobs available to you that it could be you are showing off a car for a company instead also clothes or you acting out a role for editorial work. The rewards are certainly plentiful if you can make it big in the clothing industry, with designers wanting that perfect model look. If you have done your research and think you fit the perfect stats then certainly talk to your model agent about gaining work in this category.
 It could mean you have to model winter clothes in the height of Summer, or wearing lingerie in the cold Winter snow. The world of modelling means that any job could occur at any moment and to be in with a chance of getting that call, you need to be organised and ready to drop everything at the drop of a hat. Get your coat and go, go, go!

To be a model for clothing companies is a dream come true for a lot of people, to be able to work alongside supermodels and to wear the latest fashions is a nice dream to have, but it's a really competitive world and VERY hard work - not all models make it. If you're a freelance model it's even harder because you have to organise yourself and get yourself where you need to go, but once there, the rush of adrenaline kicks in and the posing begins.

To be an all rounder and to wear clothing lines for designers, could mean you have work into your pensionable age! If you get the walk right and the posture perfect, if you look after your body and keep up with the trends  - the world of modelling will reward you twofold. If you look good at all times, the world of modelling is right for a career that lasts a lifetime. To be in high fashion for a living - it's an envious lifestyle for most.
