Fashion Modeling

Fashion runway modeling is probably far most desirable area of modeling that most every young girl dreams about. The age for female fashion models is generally between 15 and 22 years old. Although there are some exceptions, the earlier you start your career as a fashion model, the better. The career span of a fashion model is short, thus agencies investing their time and money into promoting a model want to make sure their investment will pay off.

Top modeling agencies look for female models who are at least 5’8, between 100 and 125 lbs, frail completion, and long-legged. The physical characteristics are dictated by the specifics of the fashion runway models’ job; hey are hired to show off clothes. Thus, they should be tall to be seen on the podium from the farthest rows, and slim, to be able to fit nicely in the standard wardrobe. Generally, fashion models should not have a very full chest (big chest distracts the audience from looking at the clothes), and they should have “the look that sells”. Not the traditional “Barbie-doll” look but rather a look that is in line with the contemporary fashion standards whatever they may be at any given time.

Fashion Editorial Modeling

Fashion editorial modeling by definition is a mix of fashion and editorial type of modeling whereas a model is featured in an article of a print publication descibing the latest fashion trends. Depending on the size of the publication, the requirements for a fashion editorial model may vary. Most magazines do not have strict height requirements. The main requirement is that a model should look attractive to entice the readers to follow the trend. Fashion editorial modeling is not as high-paid as high fashion and runway modeling, but is a good way to build a resume and to acquire tearsheets.

The model should be of that the target subscribers to a specific publication, whether the magazine caters to younger audience, male, female, plus-size, families with children, expecting mothers and many more.

Fashion Catalogue Modeling

Many clothing manufacturers produce catalogues featuring their products on a seasonal basis. Just like with fashion editorial modeling, models that are hired for catalogue work represent the specific target market of a specific clothing manufacturer. The pay for catalogue work tends to be high and the projects usually last for one to two weeks, with eight-hour workdays. Depending on the size of the clothing manufacturer and the circulation of catalogues, compensation for this type of work starts in the several thousand dollar range. Catalogue modeling is a competitive enterprise, because of the high pay and consistency of work.

Fashion Print Modeling

Fashion Print Modeling is similar to Catalogue Modeling with only difference that models promote clothing on billboards, and in magazine ads. There are no editorials to fill, and the featured model is captured wearing a collection that a clothing manufacturer is trying to sell.

Fashion show room modeling

This term refers to models wearing clothes of a specific designer in a show room

Fashion lingerie modeling

Major difference between fashion modeling and fashion lingerie modeling is that with lingerie modeling, the models generally need to be curvy. Lingerie is intended to bring out the beauty of a woman’s body and to to have sexual appeal. Lingerie models are not usually required to be tall unless the same models are used in a lingerie fashion shows, and in many cases are actually short to medium height. The main requirement is that a model is somewhat curvy, has toned physic and looks sexy in lingerie.

Fashion Swimsuit Modeling

Requirements for swimsuit models are the same as for lingerie models. Tones physics, nice curves, pretty face and good hair are the main parameters that a swimsuit model should fit.

Fashion fitness modeling

Because fitness modeling focuses on clothing for athletes, fashion fitness models are more muscular then an average fashion model. They tend to have strong muscle definitions, and many times fitness models are professional athletes.

Fit Modeling

Clothing manufactures use fit models when designing new products. Fit models should have the precise measurements for a specific size of clothing beeing put in production.

Fashion Plus-size Modeling

Many modeling agencies have Plus Size divisions. Plus size models are tall (usually from 5’8) with dress size averaging between 10 and 14. Unlike some may think, plus size models are not sloppy fat. Even though these models are larger then models utilized in other types of modeling, they still have to have toned physic and be proportioned.
