Models 1 Clinic 2015
Every year we gather together some industry specialists and main board models to spend one on one time with our new face girls to send them out as prepared as possible into the world of modelling and this year was no exception!
The morning began with sessions from accounting, social media and fitness and nutrition.
Darren from our accounts team gave the girls great advice on how to manage their accounts, being self employed and taxes.
Ruth Crilly – fashion model, writer and beauty insider gave the girls tips and insight into using social media as a tool to propel and sustain their modeling careers.
Tegan Haining, from the management board and founder of Bodyism taught the girls creative ways to keep fit and healthy. They were advised to try and exercise 5 times a week, preferably 2 times yoga and 3 days doing Tegan’s exercise routines .They were also encouraged to try to be more active every day by walking to castings instead of taking the tube. The girls received the Clean & Lean book to read as well as Tegan’s special meal plan. They were recommended to cut down on alcohol, white bread, pasta and potatoes but they could still have some healthy carbs such as quinoa, sweet potatoes and fruit. The main focus of this talk was health and how to provide your body with what it needs to sustain a fast paced lifestyle.
The afternoon consisted of sessions on casting etiquette, walk training, skin care.
Casting director and top model Ben Grimes talked to the girls about how to make the best impression at castings and other insider knowledge from her long successful career.
Victoria Sekrier from our mainboard gave the girls top tips on perfecting their walk, even wearing 5 inch heels!
The girls then met with our Models 1 Director Karen who offered them words of wisdom and support.
At the end of sessions, each model received a gift bag that was packed with model essentials picked by the team at Models 1. For this we want to thank Liz Earle, Vichy, Beauty & Go, Propercorn, CoLab Dry Shampoo, Urban Fruit, Invisibobble, L’Occitaine, Roger & Gallet & Bodyism for their gifts.
