Your first port of call: The parent agency

Becoming a model is the dream of many, but entering the industry is by no means easy. Your journey starts with a “mother agency”, the first step on the ladder to fame. The mother agency is like your unwavering support system that believes in you no matter what. It’s the agency that first recognizes your potential when you send in your application photos.

The road to international fame

Once you’ve built up your business and landed your first regional jobs, you can venture into international waters with your agency. If the agency notices your consistent performance and client satisfaction, you may get the chance to work abroad. The agency often travels to global fashion capitals such as Paris, London, Milan and more to attend Fashion Weeks and build personal relationships with other agencies.

International relations between agencies

Agencies in different countries often exchange portfolios of models to give them representation abroad. This is not an easy task, especially if you are a model trying to move to another country.
