How to Be a Part-Time Model
The life of a fashion model sounds glamorous — from photo shoots in high-end designer clothing to fat paychecks that pave the way for an opulent lifestyle. The journey to the top of the fashion world as a model, however, is a highly competitive one, and chances of becoming successful enough in the industry to be a full-time model can be slim. However, those who pursue a part-time modeling career will not only be able to balance a life in fashion with another desirable career, but can enjoy many of the same perks as full-time models.
Landing a Job
Step 1Research what kind of model you want to become. Models often specialize in runway or print, or they focus their efforts on a particular facet of the industry, such as plus-size fashion, swimwear or lingerie. Find the requirements for models in different fields of fashion, and do an honest self-study of your qualities and how they match what modeling scouts and agents want.
