Quick Tip #24

Category: Fashion/Runway Shows & Posing
For: Male & Female Models

Sometimes trying to come up with different poses to do in fashion shows can be difficult. To change things up, use the designs of the outfit you're wearing. For example, if you've got pockets, put one or both hands in them (this looks great while walking or posing at the end of the runway). Or if your outfit has a hood, place your hands on the edges as if you're about to remove it (this pose is best for when you're posing at the end of the runway, not while walking). These make for a nice switch up from the traditional hands on hips poses and also photograph well.



However, keep your poses simple. Remember, this isn't a photoshoot--it's a fashion show. Subtlety is key--plus many poses done during photoshoots don't work for runway shows.

hi Dania, congrats on getting signed to your agency:). I have a question about finding auditions. I am an aspiring model/actor and I want to know how to find auditions. I don't have an agent so how do i make things happen on my own. i determined to succeed in this industry and i want a smart, and safe way to do this. i currently live in California but i plan on moving to NYC soon i'm excited and i want to hit the ground running when i get there so how do i do this. also i have another question i understand that i will not be living lavishly as a struggling artist so what type of day job do you suggest. it would have to be a job that is flexible so i can go on auditions when i need to.
