The complete guide to hiring a fashion model
What is a fashion model?
Fashion models work with designers and stylists to represent brands and showcase their creations in photo shoots and fashion shows.
Designers will want to show off their latest collections to the public. Fashion modelling involves using models to wear and display clothing and accessories in order to attract potential buyers and media attention.
Fashion modelling is considered to be a form of advertising in the fashion industry. You will find fashion models appearing in magazines and catalogues as well as see them strutting their stuff down the runway at fashion shows.
Choosing the right fashion model for a shoot is often the difference between success and failure for many brands and designers.

What does a fashion model do?
Fashion modelling isn’t just about wearing fancy designer clothes. A fashion modelling career may have all the glamorous perks but it is also an extremely difficult career to have and requires strict time management skills.
Fashion models must look and behave a certain way, therefore maintaining their body image through strict dieting and exercise is essential to a fashion model’s career.
Fashion models can also work long hours and will be required to travel extensively to take part in various photo shoots and fashion shows.
How can fashion models be an asset to your business?
A fashion model has the capacity to become the face of a brand. Models like Kate Moss and Kendall Jenner have catapulted to the heights of stardom having represented many famous designer brands such as Calvin Klein and Dior.
Models will flaunt and display your work, playing a pivotal role in the creative and technical process. Models can provide feedback on clothing designs and express how it feels as well as enable you to see clearly how styled garments will appear; bringing your vision to fruition.
