Posted on Updated on

Thank-you  Abby (aibyou.nakamura) for letting us know about this cool story you were reading about related to modeling on ABC 7.  This is a very nice follow-piece to my workshop on Self-Esteem building skills, and the importance RL self-esteem has on your SL virtual modeling skills.

Strut It Hud Invite PNG

April 13th at 3pm SLT, Model’s Workshop hosted the very charming CEO of New York Modeling Agency, Martin Glom. Mr. Glom held a very informative workshop perfect for beginning models learning the Strut It HUD tool. The session was held in Skype so that Mr. Glom was able to share his screen and explain exactly what he was doing with each step. Learning about this tool is invaluable for new models so hopefully you didn’t miss it. If you did miss the workshop and you are interested in attending another, please contact AriannaJasmine Resident, COO of Model’s Workshop. If we have enough further interest we will be glad to bring Mr. Glom back for an additional session. We want to take the opportunity to thank Mr. Glom for the very informative and successful  presentation. Stay tuned for additional workshops on a variety of topics coming  soon!

Strut It HUD Workshop in Progress

FashionDish this past Monday was a rousing success as we discussed the fitting of mesh garments and the decline of quality seen lately in the fit. Some points of concern brought up were the difficulty of layering pieces, the use of the same templates over and over, HUDS not working properly and more. Suki Rexen suggested we complete a survey to identify the issues we are most concerned with so that it can be passed along to the designers. There was a very enthusiastic positive response from the group and now Suki is in the process of collecting everyone’s questions. It’s Model’s Workshop at it’s finest, working to bring awareness, education and an increased level of satisfaction to our industry within SL. Be sure to join us for our new FashionDish in May. Details will be forthcoming.

Self Esteem Workshop Invite

On March 23rd, 2017, Suki Rexen, Owner and CEO of Model’s Workshop presented a workshop on self esteem. As a RL counseling psychologist  she is well versed on the subject and her knowledge was invaluable as she lectured to the very interested group that attended.

Self Esteem Workshop 1

Attendees were asked to examine geometric representations of self esteem and choose the one they best identified with. Suki then revealed the meanings behind each and talked about ego and how we use self preservation tactics to protect ourselves. All in all it was a fascinating discussion. The models agreed building self esteem and confidence can only help further modeling careers in SL .
