Answering a Reader Question #151

Anonymous Wrote:

What are the chances of being a runway model in NYC at 5'8? 

Hi, Anonymous! NYC is one of the toughest markets to break into and 5'8" is definitely on the shorter side of the height spectrum. That being said, the competition will be high BUT if you have an amazing look then agencies will be interested in signing you. While 5'8" is considered "short" in the runway world, it does meet the minimum height requirement so it'll get you in the door. Plus, there are so many runway/fashion agencies in the NYC market so you're bound to find one that will be interested in representing you.

Good luck!
