I am in 12th science. I want to do career in modelling of clothes advice
Modeling is a tough business. Contrary to popular perception its not just about looking pretty day in and day out. As an aspiring model you have to make innumerable rounds of visits to advertisement agencies and model coordinators for getting work. All these only after you get yourself a portfolio of your pictures. Apart from keeping aside a hefty sum of money (anything between Rs 15-40, 000) for making your portfolio, you first have to choose a good photographer.
There is no single right way to get in, it depends on your contacts and getting in touch with model cordinators.
Finding out if you are cut out to be model can be both daunting as well as simple. You have to be 100 per cent true to yourself. Though this field asks for no special qualifications this is what you got to have:
The definition of beauty in this field is relative. What you must have is a photogenic face, a proportionate figure and a terrific personality.
Good height is essential, especially in ramp modelling
Extrovert and expressive
Well groomed physique and personality
Uninhibited by crowd
Flamboyant and confident
Excellent communication skills
Ability to travel alone
