To succeed in the modelling business is not an easy task. It takes time, effort and a lot of work to reach a comfortable position as a model and to be recognized in the industry.

Fashion models are constantly the main inspiration for female and male models who want to start up a modelling career.

Fashion models are well known for their beautiful faces, amazing bodies and fat bank accounts, but to make it as a fashion model, you will have to work hard and follow some basic steps, whether you are a female model or a male model.

Note that male models and female models have to fulfil different requirements and that fashion models are not the only ones to have successful careers, there are other types of modelling just as rewarding as fashion.

To help you find out the best pathway for you and to teach you how to look and behave, we have summarised top tips to guide you throughout your career. From the first steps that include searching for the best agency to the final clues on how to manage your money.

We also offer a special advice section dedicated exclusively to male models with top tips about the industry and how to take care of your body and skin.

Models Connect offers you guidance and advice on how to make your way to success easier. To have full access to our tips login to your Models Connect account .
