Answering a Reader Question #307

Ashley Wrote:

First off, great blog.

My name is Ashley.
I'm 21, five foot ten and within the standard parameters of a model.
I have been told that I look like I am 16. Recently I sent some photos to a reputable agency and received a call back for an "interview".

My concern is, do you think I would still be able to do runway at my age?

It makes me nervous because I know runway is very competitive for african-american females.


Hey, Ashley! Congrats on getting an agency interview! 22 is the maximum age for most fashion agencies so you just make the cut. That being said, I wouldn't consider you too old, especially if you look younger. Perhaps the only criticism you may receive is that you may be too "old" (I'm using that word VERY loosely) to begin a runway career. However, you shouldn't be too worried about that because as long as you are a fast learner, develop a great walk and have the right measurements and look that designers want, you'll book work and won't have any problems.

So ace your interview and cross your fingers that you'll get offered a contract! Good luck!!!
