Answering a Reader Question #361
I'm 13 years old 5'11 and my measurements are 33-21-34. I appear to be around 19 years old. I have been told I look to mature to model for teen clothing and I am unsure whether to wait until I am 18 or to try and sign to a modeling agency straight away.
Hi, Anonymous! Your height makes you ideal for fashion/runway/editorial modeling. So you can definitely work on pursuing modeling now instead of waiting until you're 18. What you'll want to do is go online and look up the official websites of local modeling agencies that are within a 2 hour's drive from where you live. Refer to each agency website in order to see what the requirements and submission methods are for fashion models.
However, many fashion agencies list the minimum age requirement at 14. There are a few that take on models as young as 13 for fashion and runway work but for the ones that want you to be 14, that just means waiting until your next birthday before submitting to them. So you've got the green light to start your modeling career now and see if you can secure agency representation.
