Ask a working fashion model
I though it’d
be helpful to gather the experiences of real people who’ve actually held a modeling job
in fashion. This will help you know what to expect for when you land this role.
Here’s is some of what they had to say.
Name: Rachel Hamel
Education: Bachelor of Fine
Arts (B.F.A.) Fashion/Apparel Design (2016)
School: Marist College
did you land your 1st modelling role?
I got my first paid modeling job off Backstage.com!
I was recently signed to both my agencies but hadn't gotten any work yet from
them. I was nervous to spend the money for a backstage membership. But I made
the money back within a week or 2.
Q: What was the application process like?
for model jobs on casting websites like Backstage is a lot like using Indeed or
LinkedIn for any other job! Applying to an agency is a little different. I
looked up some local agencies that I felt like I identified with. I looked up
their contact or submissions on their page and simply filled out the form. They
ask for photos, measurements, and sometimes other info.
Q: Expectation vs reality: how do you find the
been on a set before since I previously worked in fashion before making the
transition to modelling. Being behind the camera and in front are different,
but both experiences have helped me tremendously. I also had been on a reality
television show before. I’m constantly learning how to listen to "authority
figures" when sometimes they are your own age or learning that everyone
there is doing their jobs. You just have to focus on yours. We all have a
common goal. It's harder than it seems sometimes!
has working as a model taught you about the fashion industry?
I actually feel like I have the opposite
advantage. I worked as a fashion designer for 5 years (not including design
school and internships) before transitioning my career to modeling. My
background is unique and also the reason I feel like I have talent as a model.
There are so many areas of the modeling industry just like there are within
fashion. When I’m fit modeling, I know all about the construction and fit of
garments. When I’m doing more commercial work, it's about selling. When I am modeling
jewelry, I know to make the jewelry the center of the image, not me. Etc. Etc.
what advice do you have for those aspiring to be models?
Practice! Shoot with friends, make friends
with aspiring photographers. Be yourself! Be friendly and useful. I was even
offered a job after modeling for a company once. You never know who you are
going to meet and how they can change your life.
