Each month we ask one of our models to come into our office and help us give an insight into what it means to be a Tyne Tees Model.
On 2nd November 2016, one of our scouts from Major Models Milan came to see us and some of our girls for potential work in the Italian city. We chatted to some of the girls about their modelling career so far.
Time with Tyne Tees: June 2016
Brands worked for: I’ve only been with TTM for a few months so I haven’t had the opportunity to works with some amazing brands yet. However I have worked with choreographer Anna Brown on a recent catwalk training day. I’ve also done a lot of promo work with me being Miss Newcastle 2016 judging competitions and making appearances.
What do you enjoy most about modelling?: It has to be meeting new people. You make friends for life in this industry and everyone is so helpful if you aren’t sure on something.
What is your career highlight to date?: I think this would have to be the catwalk I’ve done. I love it! I would love to take part in any fashion week just to say I’ve done it.
Do you feel like you’ve been on a job or event that you feel has exceeded expectations and been a success?: Yes! Miss Newcastle was better than I ever expected and obviously was a bonus that I actually won it. It went so smoothly too which is hard to do for such a big event.
What would your dream modelling job be?: Victoria Secret. I don’t think I need to say much more for this question!
What advice would you give to someone wanting to get into the industry?: You need confidence. When I first started I didn’t have a clue but I learned that it doesn’t matter as long as you are confident. Or at least pretend to be! It makes other people more comfortable and makes clients realise that they have made the right model choice.
