Quick Tip #12

Category: Casting Calls
For male & female models

This statement is all you need to remember: Don't sport the competition! Each time you attend a casting call for a brand, designer, company, etc. be mindful of what you wear to the casting. It is important to remember that you're trying to be a representative of that particular brand/client and the last thing you want to do is offend them by showing that you support their competition. Clothing-wise, always avoid recognizable logos and brand names for all casting calls in general--even if the casting you're attending isn't for a clothing designer.

Going to a casting call for a company that makes accessories, such as sunglasses, jewelry or watches? Then don't walk into the casting wearing any of these items that day. Sure, you can wear sunglasses while driving there but remove them when you get out of the car if you're about to meet with a designer sunglasses company.

You may be thinking to yourself, "Dania, for real? It is not that serious." But it is. Believe me, as a model you are scrutinized from head to toe and you definitely don't want to do anything that will put you out of the running against the competition. Think of it this way: if you owned a Ford dealership, you wouldn't be cruising around town in a Chevy, right? For one day, be a blank canvas and be brand-free so the client can focus on your potential as one of their models and not be distracted by the fact that you're promoting their rival.
