Becoming a modelWritten by Ryan Fyfe
Every day I receive requests on how to becoming a model. Things like how to get started, finding and contacting a modeling agency, and getting a first photo shoot. How to get started: Before you get started doing anything, you should ask yourself these questions as they will help guide you for rest of process.
What do I want to get out of modeling? What am I willing to put into becoming a model What kind of model do I want to be? Fashion, Runway, swimsuit, sport,etc. How flexible am I for traveling and for time Once you evaluate these questions, There is two ways you can go. One is to contact a modeling agency which I will explain below. The other method is to act like your own agency and create your own portfolio. This is easily done over internet, now with several places in which you can post pictures, and information on yourself to attract talent scouts.
If you choose to go traditional route and to work with a modeling agency, It can be hard at times to know first of all how to find a good one, and what to look for in a modeling agency. You can easily look up and find agencies in phone books or online,etc. Before you do any of that, I would recommend contacting anyone you know, that is a model, and finding out about some of experiences that they have had with modeling and general, and also specifically with different agencies in your area. Once you have a general idea of what scene looks like, contact some of agencies and set up an appointment to meet with them. Meeting with agency can be hardest and most nerve wrecking part of whole experience. Be firm, and donít allow agency to take advantage of you!

February 22, 2005 Calvin Klein Ė a name we all recognize and a designer who is world renowned for his fabulous fashions. So how did Calvin Klein come to be.? As a young boy in 1940s Calvin was already pre-occupied with designing and sketching fashions for women. The boy grew into a young man earning scholarships to both New York High School of Art and Design; and Fashion Institute of Technology. This was at a time when America was just beginning to develop its own originality and uniqueness. Eventually he teamed with his childhood friend Barry Scwartz Their very first products were coats for women and men. From coats to ready to wear womenís sportswear with clean lines that were simple and effective. Then came menís fragrances, underwear, and designer jeans. Designer jeans that anyone could afford was a new idea and it very quickly took over jean market. Soon menís shorts became sexy and a desirable market was created.
