Ford Models Needs Fit Models in San Francisco
While browsing through the latest modeling gigs online, I saw that Ford put up a casting call on Craigslist looking for fit models. I spoke about fit modeling a while back on this blog but I thought it would be cool to show you guys an example of what an agency looks for. It’s no fashion modeling gig but it is pretty cool to try on the designs that have yet to be seen by the public. I’ve done fit modeling go-sees for Old Navy and Banana Republic in the past (although I’m often too petite in size to really fit the garments haha) and it’s really fun and easy work that pays well.
Here is the direct post from Craigslist that Ford put up a few days ago (note that they stress being able to stay at the same measurements). If you happen to be in the Bay Area and fit these measurements, now’s your chance so give them a call!
