Answering a Reader Question #129

Mdeanne Wrote:

hi ive always wanted to be a model it was the first thing thaypoped up in my head for a job. ive been asked by alot of eople if i was a model and if not i should start, even by my teachers... im 5"7 and 15 this year. i really want yo start modelling now so i can get higher into elite or ford or VS ahhh my dream since maths or english is deffinatly not my thing and i know for sure moddeling is! what should i do? 

Hi, Mdeanne, thanks for the question! At your current height you are ideal for commercial/print. Fashion agencies have a minimum height requirement of 5'8" but since you are younger, some of them lower that requirement to 5'6" or 5'7" but it depends on your location and what market you're in.

I would suggest reading the following blog post about how to get started in modeling, which will give you some pointers on what you need to do:

Where Do You Start?

Good luck!!!

Hi Dania,
My name's Caroline and modeling has been a dream of mine for several years now. I am 13 years old, 5'9", and weigh around 132 pounds. My measurements are 34-25-36....which is why I'd like to get into commercial or print modeling rather than fashion. I know my measurements are pushing it, but it you had any tips for me they would be GREATLY appreciated. I live in the San Francisco area, so if you know of any agencies or anything around there please fill me in. Thank you bunches! I really admire your work. :)

Hi Dania,
My name is Jennifer. I am kind of paranoid when it comes to fashion shows. I was in some and I am uncomfortable (this is also the part I am paranoid with) with the boys walking passed the girls dressing room. It just makes me want to close the door even though we can't. I feel so exposed. is there any way I can stop thinking of being so exposed? I would appreciate your help.
