? WHAT IS FASHIONHARP ABOUT?  

The future of FashionHarp is on the way! 

 

FashionHarp.com is THE place to both listen and be heard, to find new artworks, to exhibit your own and most importantly, to connect with the most innovative artistic individuals from all over the world. Browse by category, style – even search for designs in your favorite color!

 

We provides endless opportunities for models, photographers and agencies. Never before has a service been so easy, effective and truly global.

 

By having your profile online even as a model at FashionHarp, you create a sense of urgency in the agents and scouts to sign you before another agent snaps you up! We've heard countless stories from models who, even after submitting their photos to agencies themselves, didn't get signed until they were on FashionHarp. We love that! Online profile at FashionHarp is much more efficient than mailing photos to agencies, having a separate website, traveling to modeling conventions and searches or taking modeling classes. 

 

We are working with reactions, with impulses and talent in NEW YORK, MILAN, LONDON, PARIS and anywhere else that matters.

? What are the main different types of modelling?

Fashion: Covers a range of different disciplines within the fashion world, including runways and editorial, commercial print, catalogue and glamour modeling.

High Fashion: When you see the incredibly tall and lean figures that grace the runways and editorials for the leading fashion houses and designers, these are the High Fashion models. They are generally required to be between 172cm to 180cm (5"8 to 5"11), with a dress size of 4-6 US (6-8 UK), with a typical bust size of 34. The age range can be from 14 to 25. For guys the age range is more flexible and they can start from the age of 16 until their late 40's. They need to be between 180cm to 188cm (5"11 to 6"2), with an excellent physique and a chest size of 94cm to 106cm (37" to 42") and 76cm to 81cm (30" to 32") waist. Guys tend to have longer careers if they look after themselves.
Plus Sized: Modeling for the larger body type, this type of modeling is on the increase and a relatively new phenomenon. If you're confident, with great attributes and you are between the sizes of 12-16 US (14-18 UK) then this could be for you. More and more advertisers are using Plus Size Models to promote their products in a bid to appeal to a broader demographic. As a Plus Size model you will still need to have great skin, teeth and hair and have that something special about you. For High Fashion Plus Sized Models the height requirements remain at a minimum of 172cm (5").

Real Life & People: If you like the idea of modeling, but do not fit into the above categories, then this could be for you. Real life models are used in advertising or corporate campaigns, when companies are looking to represent the everyday person. As a TV/Film Extra you will generally be non-featured (no speaking parts) and in the background of a scene. This can be fun and interesting to be part of, but it can also be long hours with lots of waiting around. The benefits are that if you are flexible with your days, it can be a good way to supplement your income.
Body Parts: For example if you have great abs and pretty hands...
Senior: Models that are older than 45 years.

? Can I Be a Model?

You are likely to hear that to be a model you need to be beautiful, tall and slender with perfect proportions. Now this is certainly true for high fashion models, where designers want one type of model that they feel shows off their designs in the best way.
However if you do not fit this criteria don't despair, as there are many other areas that you can work in successfully and lucratively as a model. The modelling industry needs all different shapes and sizes. It ranges from the models who are required for the runways of Paris and Milan to those being seen in the background of TV commercials. You need to find the right fit for you and your place in the industry.
To help you with this we have listed the different types of modelling work that's available and the criteria for each, and as with most things in life there are always exceptions...

? I would like to be a model what should I do?

We believe that to be a model is about having "the right look", the right shots and the right place/people to show them to. As we are not a model agency (we offer a place for models to connect with agencies, photographers and other industry professionals), we highly encourage all new models to find and get representation through a reputable model agency. So you're at the right place to find one!


Remember: To get working as a model you have to be proactive, it's not enough to just be sitting pretty. How? Use our website to get yourself seen. Apply for castings, create your own network, pimp up your profile by having everything completed including your very best shots. Your modelling career is in your hands too!

? WHAT IS AN ONLINE COMPOSITE CARD?

In the past a model's composite card was a printed card with a selection of the model's best photos. The card was then mailed or given to numerous agents, scouts and clients. Composite cards were usually printed in the thousands and were very costly. Today, most models use online composite cards. The online version is basically the same, with a selection of your best photos, that you can email (rather than mail) to numerous recipients at a time.

Submit your answer

? WHY DO I NEED AN ONLINE PORTFOLIO?

By having your profile online at FashionHarp as a model, you create a sense of urgency in the agents and scouts to sign you before another agent snaps you up! We've heard countless stories from models who, even after submitting their photos to agencies themselves, didn't get signed until they were on FashionHarp. We love that! Online profile at FashionHarp is much more efficient and cost-effective than mailing photos to agencies, having a separate website, traveling to modeling conventions and searches or taking modeling classes.
