MY SISTER/BROTHER/COUSIN/FRIEND WOULD BE PERFECT BUT SHE’S TOO SHY TO TRY SOMETHING LIKE THIS. CAN I APPLY FOR THEM?
Unfortunately, no. If they're going to become a model, they will have to participate eventually. If you think they have what it takes to get noticed, we suggest you keep encouraging or trying to convince them to apply. Offer to be their photographer!
WHAT DO I DO IF I DON’T HAVE PROFESSIONAL PHOTOS?
That’s just fine by us – in fact, that’s better. We’re not looking for professional photos (professional photos are fine if you have them). What we really want to see is fresh, natural snapshots of you that any friend or family member can easily take on their smart phone. If you join FWGMag.Com we will also shoot your photoshoot.
SHOULD I AT LEAST WEAR MAKEUP?
Absolutely not! Models may wear makeup in pictures, but even models don’t wear makeup on their day off. We want to see your natural look – clean, beautiful, and makeup-free.
DO YOU HAVE OPEN CALLS?
The world today has gone digital and so have we, which means this really is the best way for us to see and evaluate every single person who might be interested in applying. but yes, we do open calls occasionally.
SO I CAN REALLY GET DISCOVERED HERE?
Absolutely! With five international collaborating offices, our goal will always be to find the undiscovered talent from local to all around the globe, get you published on the desk of and in front of all of the most important, agencies, scouts, executives and connections in the industry. Take a look at our roster and you’ll see our models truly do live and come from every corner of the world. Our online application process allows us to see the next great Fashion Weeks Global Magazine model/talent no matter where you are.
EVEN IF I HAVE NO EXPERIENCE?
Hey, everyone starts somewhere! Beginners and fresh faces are exactly what we’re looking for. In this business, being new can be an invaluable advantage, so don’t be afraid to throw your hat in the ring.
IS THERE AN APPLICATION FEE?
Never online. Yes at open calls and most runway fashion shows. You also recieve a professional headshot– and there should never be any cost to you to apply anywhere unless you recieve product such as a headshot or photoshoot etc...
WILL I HAVE TO DROP OUT OF SCHOOL?
We recognize your obligations to your studies and we always say modeling is a hobby until you finish high school. We take care to tailor schedules for all of our young talent around school vacations and summer holidays.
WHEN WILL I HEAR BACK?
Unfortunately, due to high demand we aren’t able to reach out to everyone. However, if we feel you’re right for us we will surely be in touch. Don’t be discouraged if you don’t hear back from us. Remember, you might not be the right age or height for a particular advertiser, retailer or client at that moment, so it just might not be the right time. Believe us, things change quickly in this business so feel free to apply again in the future.
