Model’s Workshop Newsletter

Posted on Updated on

We’ve been busy the past few months at Model’s Workshop bringing on board some new staff and planning events and workshops for the remainder of the year. The following is a quick summary of what we’ve been up to:

NEW STYLING CHALLENGES CHAIR
AriannaJasmine has stepped into her new role as Chair of Styling Challenges and has kept the ball rolling with two challenges thus far and plans for some cool themes and collaborations in the coming months. If you see Arianna walking the halls of Model’s Workshop, or occasionally poking into MW Group Chat, please say hello.

Arianna is the reigning Miss Model International at L’Amour and brings years of runway, print and blogging experience to our team. She is the Executive Fashion Editor at Envy Magazine, and has written scripts, taken part in many charity events, and has volunteered as a model at Model’s Workshop for the past two years. She brings a wealth of fashion knowledge to the MW team and we are thrilled to have her on board in this leadership role. Check out Arianna’s blog at http://www.worldofvirtualfashion.com/

Congratulations to Peter Carter – July’s winner and rockinman1 – August winner. Details re September’s challenge will be posted soon. Read more about Styling Challenges here.

THE TEAM IS GROWING

FASHIONDISH CHATS
A reminder that the Monthly FashionDish Chat session will take place on Monday, September 12 at 5PM (slt). Topic is Fashion Show Scripts: Are they really effective? Are they distracting? Are they necessary? Style Cards vs Descriptions – are models responsible for either? What is the standard pay for script writers? Mark your calendar for this one!

WORKSHOPS
Some cool workshops are in the plans and include:
— Mesh Heads (continuing series on mesh bodies and body parts)
— Genres throughout the ages (continuing series on Styling)
— Jelly Dolls and how it impacts models
— The economics of modelling (know and stick to your budget)
— Who’s Who in fashion (meet and ask questions of various fashion professionals)…and more

FASHION SHOWS
Ok all I will say is that there’s one planned for this year and I’ll be sending a casting notice soon. It won’t be your typical fashion show because if you’ve worked with me in past shows you know I’m not typical. I will be looking for models to add to our roster so watch for details soon.
