FASHION industry models.
The Clothing Model web site is a fashion modeling portfolio service
to assist models gain employment in the world of fashion modeling.
Models can create and modify their own modeling profile by utilizing
our simple to navigate administration area.
In an effort to assist models who wish to remain anonymous during
initial contact with potential employers, we have included a method
for anonymous communication. This will allow a potential employer to
contact a model without seeing the models full contact details.
After the model, receives the first correspondence, they can decide
if they wish to respond to the potential employer. At that time the
potential employer would learn the models contact information.
ClothingModel.net is an low cost tool for models to create online
modeling portfolios. Simply stated, this is a "match making service"
to assist models and members of the fashion industry and press. All
communication, modeling events, price negotiations, payments etc.,
will be between the model and employer of the modeling services.
Create a Fashion Model Profile - The world of modeling as well as
the international fashion scene has a very interesting mix of
characters. Some are honest as saints and others tend to be on the
dark side of the spectrum. As seen in the movies as well as in
reality, the modeling industry may not necessarily be a pretty field
in which to work. When beauty, money, and fame reach a crossroad, it
is an interesting potion indeed. If you wish to step into the realm
of fashion modeling, we suggest you proceed cautiously. In an effort
to assist aspiring models, the Apparel Search Company has
decided to provide an online portfolio service. This service allows
models to create and maintain their very own modeling profile. The
profiles may include your professional bio as well as photos of your
prior fashion modeling projects. If you have no prior experience, we
are not turning our back on you. This site is truly intended for
both the experienced as well as novice. If you do not yet have
professional photos, you are permitted to provide personal photos.
However, we recommend that you provide head shots so that potential
clients can view clear images of your face.
WE ARE NOT A MODELING AGENCY: The FashionModel.net website has been
designed to simply provide models with an online profile. The
profile can be utilized as your comp sheet (bio / calling card /
resume / portfolio etc.) The intention of this service is to be a
simple as well as inexpensive method to get your face in front of
the proper people. This may sound silly, but it is not unheard of to
meet a casting agent in a bar, restaurant, or even the library. You
obviously can not carry a full portfolio every where you go.
However, if you maintain an online portfolio, you can simply write
down for them your web page address so that they can view your
profile at a later time (if you enticed them to do so during your
initial meeting). Please do not confuse an "online modeling
portfolio" with the functions of a "modeling agency". We are NOT an
agency. Modeling agents provide far greater service. In fact, if you
are serious about entering the modeling industry, we strongly
suggest that you seek representation from a professional modeling
agency. The proper agency, can make a world of difference. Modeling
agents have connections with fashion designers, fashion magazines,
clothing companies etc. In addition to the proper industry
connections, they also possess the experience needed to navigate
thru the wild universe of fashion modeling. Again, we suggest you
utilize an agency, but make certain to do the necessary research to
make sure that you are working with a GOOD agency. If you select the
wrong agency, you will be on the fast track to disaster.
Unfortunately, we can not tell you the good from the bad. We can
only suggest to you to be careful and do your research! In our
opinion, you should have your own modeling portfolio in "addition"
to working with a modeling agency. Actually, an online profile will
assist you with getting your face in front of the modeling agencies.
Catching their attention is the first step to joining a good agency.
In addition, not all agencies require exclusivity contracts. If you
work with both an agency and your own profile, you will possibly
gain assignments for which you do not have to share in your
profits. If you own your own web site that displays your personal
modeling portfolio, you are welcome to create a profile on our site
and link it to your own web site for additional traffic. In our
administration section, you will have an opportunity to list your
web site address.
