A carpenter is not a carpenter without a hammer, nail, cutting and measuring tools. A driver is of no use without a car or truck to drive. A doctor is not a doctor without stethoscope, thermometer and syringe on hand. Now for a fashion designer, his or her work will not be appreciated to the full extent without models to carry the creations and strut on the catwalk.
So for a fashion designer, it is not only about clothes and the latest designs. If you are really serious in the line of business and world, you must also consider hiring male and female models and you must choose the best ones. And you will find the best models to flaunt your new outfits in a modelling agency that has a deep roster of great models. If you do not know what to do or where to start, there is still no need to worry about. Some modeling agencies out there even provide assistance and consultations especially to the beginners in this kind of trade.
On the other hand, if you are an aspiring model it is an absolute must for you to find a modeling agency to represent you in order to succeed in the business. Modeling agencies are the ones that actively search for work or are approached by the clients who want to hire some models. Normally, aspiring models will attend casting calls where agents go to find new talents and faces. If you really have what it takes then join supermodel searches. One such event was the recently concluded 2011 Ford Supermodel of the World Contest which was won by a Filipina, Danica Magpantay. Because of her success, she now belongs to one of the top modeling agencies in the world and now has a lucrative modeling contract. Most aspiring models though will not be as lucky but nothing is impossible without guts and perseverance.
