Miami Yacine: Platinum status

Miami Yacine is a German speaking rapper (for those who don’t know him yet) of Moroccan origin, raised in Dortmund. He himself belongs to the Dresden group KMN Gang. Miami Yacine is the most successful German rapper and has over 120 million views on his music video Kokaina alone. In 2012 he released his first mixtape completely free of charge – today, after all the success, it’s hard to believe! He only became really famous with the trap single Kokaina in September 2019. Already in the first month the video had 10 million video views and since then it has increased extremely! In January of this year, it cracked the 100 million hits. Miami Yacine was not only successful on YouTube but also in music sales and of course made it into the German music charts. His single now has platinum status.

Video in Berlin

A few weeks ago we met together in Berlin with the music production of Miami Yacine, together with our models Boris, Louisa, Linn and Flower. The video shooting was indeed spectacular, as most of the scenes were shot in the evening and at night. In an old huge factory hall, with neon lights and strong light effects on 50 meters of distance. The designer music video has everything that goes with it. Miami Yacine is a great artist who has already achieved a lot and will certainly achieve a lot more. The song Designer and the music video deal with the high fashion industry and Haute Couture. Who doesn’t love them, the big brands around Prada, Hermes, Balmain, Gucci or even Dior? Miami Yacine has gathered all these high fashion brands together in his music video designer.

Boris in particular did a fantastic job in video production as the main model. Although he was flown to Berlin on the same day, every recording was made. We are very happy about the cooperation and can also recommend you Miami music video for the song Kokaina, with which Air 2016 had its big breakthrough in Germany:

Our cute New Face Franziska: Classy and elegant

Parallel to Fashion Week we invited our New Face Franziska to Berlin. In Berlin-Mitte, on Museum Island, we had the perfect location to present our young talent in a completely different light. With two photo shoots and this new video from our videographer Robin Platte. Franziska is a real cutie! Although she is still very young, she is already very professional in her work and shows absolute motivation and commitment to become a model. Of course, as a model manager and model agency, it is a pleasure to meet such fresh talent in Berlin and get to know her for the first time, just like me. Franziska has strong prerequisites to really get off to a good start as a model. From fashion magazines, catwalks, photo shoots to videos for fashion companies. We and our partners see great potential in Franziska and that is why we were very pleased to welcome them to Berlin. But enough written, pictures say more than a thousand words!

Our curved queen Camille: Curvy Model in Berlin

Charming! Camille is very British, so we are all the more pleased that we were able to win the Hamburg model as a partner in Germany and management.

Our next Superstar: Luisa

The next Cara Delevingne? This is not a quote from us but a quote from Chefscout of one of the biggest model agencies in the world. Based in New York, Paris and many other cities. Luisa is New Face and just got back from the USA. She was there for a year and learned a lot about life and the country. Now she is back in Germany and we start her modeling career. This includes not only first test shoots and videos, but also castings for international agencies to prepare for life as a model in the big world. Very rarely, the scouts of the biggest international agencies visit our model agencies in Berlin or Cologne to meet some of our models, selected and selected. What is such an internal agency casting about? For months and even years in advance, the world’s largest and most renowned agencies have secured the option for young models. Whoever has absolutely great talent will be confirmed years in advance for one of the major international agencies.

Until then, we as the parent agency will take care of the construction, organize shootings, jobs, coaching and much more to prepare the model for work in one of the largest agencies. Here one makes it on the big magazines and partly also on the covers, wow, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, to name only a few names. If you have so many visitors to the house, there is a good chance that you will meet with rejection, also due to small details. Perhaps the hip is 1 cm too wide or on the shoulder. Maybe there’s already someone of that guy in New York, Milan or Paris.

But sometimes, you manage to get a head scout out of the role in such a way that he can only rave. Amazing. Fantastic. The next Cara Delevingne! Luisa is extremely motivated and makes great efforts, has the perfect conditions not only in moderation and figure but also in personality. We are extremely pleased to represent her as a parent agency and to take the step into a modeling career with her. In Berlin we produced two videos directly, with her in portrait, alone and focused and with her model colleague Hannah, of whom we recently reported about her new video. Here is Luisa I Fashion Video from Berlin! If you want to see more of yourself, look in Luisa’s model portfolio now.

Aleksandra: Model and Actress from Poland in Germany

Aleksandra is wonderful! Today we had a joint job in Munich of four of our models for a large electrical manufacturer. That much we can already tell you: It’s about e-bikes. Big commercial, big effort and still we had time at the end to shoot a small, new showreel of Aleksandra. As a photo model she is perfect for advertising. But she can do much more! In Poland she is a guest as an actress in series and also on one or the other red carpet. Therefore we are always happy when we can invite Aleksandra to Germany for a new photo or video production or, like today, for commercials.

Today was really spectacular, together with our Best Ager model Milva, from small stunts with the bikes to the perfect smile and the constant repetition of the same scene. Modeling is a lot of work! Nevertheless she made it out of the hotel the next day fresh and lively, just before the airport we could shoot her for a short video. You can find the video and more photos in Aleksandra’s model folder.

New Faces are special or she is something very special! Her look, her look, her charisma, her positive way and her effect on people, in real life, at castings or at photo shootings. Eugenia already knows a lot to tell and implement in her early years. Therefore we are very happy to support you as a model agency and management, not on short-term goals but on sustainable success in Germany and internationally!

You can always find new photos of Eugenia in her model portfolio and today this new, chic video is added as a candy. Our agency Videograph Robin Platte went to a lot of trouble in Berlin and met Eugenia for this small, strong visual enhancement of her book!
Why are videos so important for videographers and customers?

Many agencies still rely on pure image material, and many jobs are no longer just about photos. Small video sequences are made for Instagram, more elaborate sequences for YouTube and of course even more elaborate for TV, streaming portals or cinema advertising. For many casting agencies it is therefore important to get a moving image of the model. How are the looks? Twists? Movements?

Today came Eugenia’s new video on our YouTube Channel! If you don’t want to miss a video of her but also of our other models and also of our male models, then follow us on YouTube!

Here is Eugenia’s new video! You can find more of it in Eugenias Modelbook.

Rick Genest x Zombie Boy: Rebel, Discovery, Super Model

A few hours ago Rick Genist was found dead, at the age of 32 years leaving a woman and his children. Although we usually write about jobs and castings, today we wanted to make an obituary for one of the greatest people in the world! Strong, independent and just a nice guy.

Our last meeting with Rick Genest aka Zombie Boy

We were allowed to meet Rick with our fashion magazine a few months before his sudden death today in Montreal (Canada) for Interview. Even before that he was a very special person who encouraged us to believe in us and our idea. Various international media have taken up our news, as well as the daily El Pais from Spain has taken up our interview once again. It’s a sad message, because he was one of the most inspiring people. Whether commercials with L’Oreal, which we also show you right away or the music video with Lady Gaga. We are very grateful that we once had the opportunity to ask Rick Genest our questions and get personal answers, but also for another opportunity for our models to work with him.

Rick Genest – Life, Inspiration, Super Model

Rick Gin is an inspiring personality for us, raised in Canada, he rebelled early on, and was later even a squatter. He got his first tattoo at the age of 16, at the age of 19 he decided to tattoo himself completely to and “undead people” with tattoo templates, which he combined little by little and could create something completely new from it.

After his discovery, he worked for the biggest international brands. In the end, as young as he was at the age of 32, he had not only worked for the entire high fashion industry but also made international commercials, including for American DIY stores such as Home Depot.

So he had arrived in the midst of society. Everybody liked him, everybody accepts them. He had a wife, he had children, yet he chose it. What else could he have experienced? Be ours, your life is so precious! We must preserve his memory as a joyful person who has always made the world a little more colourful. RIP Rick. We have collected some moments from his life and his obituary from our Modemagazin.

Published on Instagram after his death

More from Rick Genest on Instagram.

We want to offer them our deepest condolences. Dulcedo Management is shocked and saddened by this tragedy. Zombie Boy, Rico, was loved by everyone who had the chance to meet and know him. Icon in the artistic scene and in the fashion and entertainment industries, this innovator has charmed all hearts. As you can expect, this is an incredibly difficult time for everyone involved. We ask that the privacy of his family be respected as they grieve and in the next coming days, an official statement will be made by his family. -Dulcedo Management

Miss Long Legs: Michelle! New Showreel

If Michelle doesn’t conquer the catwalks of the world, I don’t know! Today we’re introducing our new New Face, Michelle! Met at our last modelcasting, we were immediately enchanted by Michelle. Especially her long hair, which gave us an absolute “Victoria’s Secret Moment” while running, immediately confirmed our opinion that Michelle has to model! Whether in Berlin, DĂŒsseldorf, Hamburg or Munich, as long as our New Face is not yet abroad, we will make every effort to push her as far as possible so that she is perfectly prepared for modeling abroad – parallel to school.

With her measurements, but also with her positive nature and her unique charisma, Michelle is becoming a professional day by day. Today we have something very special, her first fashion video for her model portfolio. Videos are important, especially to give customers an impression of how the model moves, but their facial expressions are also their way and effect on people. Whether for Instagram, YouTube, TV, streaming portals like Netflix or cinema, in so many areas it is important that models deliver perfect video formats.

Michelle also has special qualities for the catwalk. Fashion shows, just like made for them. That’s why we’re all the more looking forward to the coming months and years together. If you want to see the first photos of Michelle, you can find them in Michelle’s model folder!

Already in her first weeks Arina was at the London Fashion Week! With a total of 5 jobs she had a great start in her career there. Modeling in London is a real challenge!

Short trip Berlin? The best districts for your business trip as a model

You got your next job as a model in Berlin? Congratulations! But when you’re in the capital for the first time, you’re sure to feel lost. But Berlin isn’t as big as you think, if you know a little bit about it! So that you arrive safely on your next trip and can also explore the most beautiful places directly and find the perfect hotel or also an inexpensive alternative to the hotel, we have summarized here once the best tips for Berlin. First of all, do we basically get to the question, in which parts of the city does it even live to be a model?

The best districts of Berlin

If you are already booking a hotel or a cheap accommodation, then you should definitely settle down in the more beautiful places of Berlin, where you can experience something after a strenuous job, find cosy and tasty restaurants or even one or the other club, e.g. if it continues for you only the next day.

Berlin hot spots for your first visit

  • Berlin-Mitte: Typical city instead of typical Berlin, but central
  • Prenzlauer Berg: For a cosy time in Berlin
  • Friedrichshain: Party and Lifestyle 24/7
  • Kreuzberg: International and still Berlin
  • Berlin-Mitte: Typical city instead of typical Berlin, but central

Jobs in Berlin, tips for your next trip

In the middle of Berlin you can’t do anything wrong, you are in the centre of all places, and between Zoo, Potsdamer Platz and Alexanderplatz, you have numerous possibilities to eat something tasty but also to experience something in the evening. The area around Berlin Mitte is characterized by tourism but also by busy people, from Monday to Friday. On weekends you will usually find tourists here, strolling from one place to another. The absolute advantage of Berlin Mitte, you are very central and can reach all places quickly. It’s also very safe here and you have very elegant nightlife. The little disadvantage, life is a bit more expensive and of course you don’t get to know the real Berlin and the real Berliners! And exactly these beautiful experiences on journeys, meeting new people, new cultures but also simply new areas, is one of the absolute advantages which one can enjoy as a model. It is guaranteed not to be boring! But if you want to experience a bit more of Berlin, then maybe you should settle down in one of these districts. The advantage, you can easily find them! Around Berlin Mitte, we start northeast in Prenzlauer Berg. You reach Prenzlauer Berg directly above Alexanderplatz. Then it goes down to the south via Friedrichshain to Kreuzberg.

Prenzlauer Berg: For a cosy time in Berlin

The home of hipsters and young families is especially for those who want to experience a dignified Berlin, the best area for cheap overnight stays like at Airbnb or hotel rooms. Here in Prenzlauer Berg you will find fewer original Berliners, but many newcomers, but a very relaxed Berlin atmosphere, beautiful streets and a little green left and right. In Prenzlauer Berg there is more upscale gastronomy, although you can still afford it, of course, because the prices in Berlin are not as overpriced as in Munich, for example. In Prenzlauer Berg you will also find numerous smaller clubs, where you can spend the evening relaxed to jazz sounds or dance to house and hip hop. In Prenzlauer Berg you will find fewer tourists, many newcomers and therefore a very interesting and international mix.

Friedrichshain: Party and Lifestyle 24/7

If you want to experience something more and also a little younger culture, then you should definitely take a look at Berlin Friedrichshain. Here you will not only find the trendy scene clubs around Warschauer Straße, e.g. the Great Crested Grebe, here you will also find real Berlin streets. A little snotty, a little edgy, totally adorable! Friedrichshain is a smaller district in relation to Prenzlauer Berg and Kreuzberg; it connects the two central and multicultural parts of Berlin. Here you can find party tourists in particular, which is why you can also experience a lot in the evening. From the club with swimming pool to simply hanging around on the street, e.g. on Warsaw Street and the many exciting possibilities that arise around this place. If you go a little further, only a few minutes, you are already at the beginning of Kreuzberg!

Kreuzberg: International and still Berlin

Just a few decades ago Kreuzberg was the multicultural district in which there were many problems. As a result, many creative people settled here and artists, so Kreuzberg became the popular district it is today. Kreuzberg perfectly connects the Berlin world and the international, tourists meet here with real local but also with dressed up and of course hipsters. The district is very cosy and offers with its various small bars, restaurants and clubs for every evening alternate. Berlin Kreuzberg will definitely not be boring for you as a model, neither during the day nor in the evening. During the day you can get various snacks from all over the world in hundreds of small restaurants, from the classics of Italy and Turkey to Mongolian, Kenyan or Indian, all cultures of the world can be found here! Kreuzberg also offers numerous hotels as well as Airbnb overnight accommodations, so that you can be right in the district and feel right at home here.

City map, travel to Berlin: Top recommendations for your short trip

We have summarized all three districts once again for you here in a clear map. Of course the other districts of Berlin are always worth a visit, but here you would have the easiest entry and get to know a beautiful part of Berlin. Not only a nice part, but also a lot of entertainment that not only the original Berliner gives but also tourists and business people. This mix makes the capital a very special place and also a hotspot in Germany not only for models but also for fashion designers and celebrities.

How do I find the best and cheapest hotel in Berlin?

If you are looking for a quick way to spontaneously book a hotel in Berlin, the best way is a booking portal and Booking.com.

On hotel booking portals you will not only find reviews and recommendations of other users but you will also constantly find the current availability. Often you have to make a lot of calls to find available rooms, booking portals provide a quick and uncomplicated insight into the current situation. Especially at big events, mostly fairs, many hotels are fully booked, because international guests also arrive and some companies book out half hotels directly, e.g. if a big division comes from China. Therefore it is recommended to take a look at such booking portals.

It pays to book via Airbnb for Berlin?

If you want to save some money, booking with Airbnb is definitely worthwhile. However, if you have a demanding and stressful job, it is sometimes advisable to book a hotel, as they take care of you completely. You don’t have to worry about food or keeping your room clean. So you can fall straight into bed late in the evening, after a strenuous job in Berlin. Usually the customer or your model agency will book the hotel anyway. This is the advantage of management, we take care of all your concerns! This way you can fully concentrate on your career and get the right input from your management to develop your career.

Charlene: Tooth gap, full lips and from Paris – new video

In spring our powerwoman Charlene was booked by Onygo in Cologne. Of course we used this to get to know our Charlene better and to film a new showreel with her. Charlene is especially unique because of her gap between her teeth and her full lips, her hair is chin-long and blond. She is constantly on the move, she lives in Paris and travels to Berlin, then back to New York. What many people don’t know: She not only likes to stand in front of the camera, but also behind it! She lives out her creativity in her short films and photos. In keeping with her style, Robin has also kept her show reel: a bit gloomy and grungy.  But check out the show reel itself:

A visit in our Agency: Luisa & Hannah

Luisa is back! Her second fashion video with our model Hannah. After we already told you a few days ago about her first fashion video from Berlin, at our model agency visit, today on our model agency Youtube Channel appears her new video together with our Zoe. Videos are important to get an impression of the model, in motion and facial expressions. Interacting with a second model raises the bar. Because both looks have to sit, the position, the movement, really challenging. You have a strict timeline, a producing team and not eternally time. A good exercise for our models and a nice video for our customers to see how great they perform in front of the camera. If you want to see more of them you can find photos and videos in Luisa’s model folder but also in Hannah’s model folder.

More videos of the two but also of our other models you can find on our model agency on YouTube!

Modeling Abroad – RenĂ© Vowerk as a Male Model in Istanbul

Modeling Abroad Part #1 – Rene Vorwerk was 45 days in Istanbul! With model flat-sharing and everything that goes with it, a real experience: “You meet models from all countries”. Rene has shot for JACK & JONES, Lescon, Under Armour and Nike. Go abroad as a model? For many models, both new comers and professionals, a constant theme. With a stay abroad, some plans come your way, you will be rewarded with plenty of experiences – no matter where in the world you are.

Many young models are concerned about whether they can cope independently abroad, what exactly awaits them and which country or city is the right choice. René von Cocaine Models was just on the road as a model in Istanbul. I talked to him about his stay abroad in the Turkish metropolis.

RenĂ© says Istanbul is a real experience: “You meet models from all countries”

CM: René, what attracted you to Istanbul?

I generally wanted to go abroad for modeling and since my mother agency in Germany was looking for models for Istanbul, I contacted them directly! Since I was already on vacation in Istanbul before, I knew that the city is super beautiful – I didn’t have to think long!

CM: How did you prepare for the “big trip”?

I prepared myself by training one or two extra days in the gym to really be physically on top level – that is very important for me as a model to be and remain competitive!

CM: Your stay was not only a “great adventure”, but above all of a professional nature, what experiences did you generally have as a model in this city?

New experiences for me were definitely the jobs for the music videos and the internet advertising film! Acting was completely new to me, but I really enjoyed it, because I always had super nice teams! Another good experience was that you meet models from other countries every day, talk, exchange opinions and experiences and make really good contacts and friendships. Being among’like-minded people’ every day feels great, there is always a lot to laugh about and it never gets boring!

Jack&Jones, Lescon, Under Armour and Nike: Model René on his success in Istanbul

CM: What types of models have a particularly good chance of success in Istanbul?

In my experience Central European blond model types have great chances in Istanbul! I was very successful there and was able to get three to four jobs every week!

CM: What kind of jobs did you get? How did they go off?

In the beginning there were some webshop jobs. After the first two weeks came the first jobs of castings, like music videos or catalog jobs for Turkish companies. After four weeks I was able to add webshops for well-known sports brands like’Nike’ and’Under Armour’. The longer I was there, the better the jobs. Towards the end I was in the top 2 for the new ‘TĂŒrkish Airlines’ commercial and did a campaign job for LTB jeans – the shop posters will also be released in Germany, of which I am very proud! Generally I have to say that I always had super nice people and teams around me. It was not always possible for everyone to speak English, but it was still possible to communicate by hand and foot!

CM: What was your daily routine in Istanbul like? What was difficult about everyday life? What was pleasant?

On days when you had a job, you were picked up by our driver between 7.00 am and 9.00 am and driven to the customer. Mostly the jobs were finished at 4 pm to 7 pm. Some of the jobs were followed by castings or fittings. If you weren’t home too late after all, you still went to the gym. Of course there were also completely free days, where we went shopping in the city or did a little’sightseeing’! It was difficult to concentrate on casting after a long job (often 10 hours) and smile at the customer, but it is absolutely part of the job! Long waiting times at castings were stressful – when you have to wait three hours or more with 60 models in one room and everyone tries to occupy themselves somehow. It was a pleasure to make new contacts again!

CM: How did you live there?

I lived in our Malemodel Apartment with three models at the beginning. In the end, there were only two of us. Our apartment was purposefully small, but from the location super good, we could reach everything under 10 minutes on foot!

model-maennermodel-rene-ausland-job-modeln-eu-istanbul-trends-reisen-blogger-blog-interview-(7)

Model flat share, gym and city: Istanbul has a lot to offer

CM: What have you done and experienced in the city besides casting and jobs?

After the model’s everyday life we often stayed in the huge shopping mall in Sisli, which is one of the largest in Europe. It took 10 minutes to walk from our apartment. There you could really buy everything you could imagine! There was a big casino with two roller coasters inside, that was breathtaking! One day we took the ferry to the Asian side of Istanbul and searched the streets and shops there! We walked a lot and took the subway.

CM: What are your personal highlights of Istanbul? (Also especially for models)

One of my highlights is Istanbul itself! It is an unbelievably beautiful city, both in the snow and in blue skies! Sitting in a café with friends, drinking Turkish tea and enjoying the best views of the Bosphorus and the other side is a super good feeling! For models it is very interesting, because it is a completely different model everyday life than I am used to from Germany, because you live together with other models and always have someone around you!

CM: What can you recommend to other models for a stay in Istanbul?

In any case, it is recommended not to crumble on the couch after a long and hard day, but to go outside to see something of this wonderful city! Generally, of course, it is very polite to be on castings and jobs – if everyone is happy and in a good mood, it’s even more fun!

CM: What did you particularly like as a model in Istanbul? What wasn’t so great?

I didn’t like the pay for the jobs so much less than you know it in Germany! Otherwise, if you have to say that you have a lot more jobs a week and it pays off in the end! I liked the team spirit and the people from my agency, we were like a family among each other. The jobs were similar – always very polite and nice people.

René recommendation: An extra tube of Face-Cleaner & cream!

CM: What problems and complications can German models encounter in Istanbul?

Some models have problems with Turkish food. If you don’t like that and don’t eat anything from the canteen at work, you always have to look after yourself and take something from home with you. The water from the pipes is not as clean as we are used to from Germany and so some models had problems with their skin – an extra tube of cream or cleaner from home is not wrong!

CM: What did you take with you from modeling in Istanbul for your future?

I have many friends and contacts to photographers and brands from all over the world! You are brought back to the ground a bit and you notice how good you are as a model in Germany when it comes to working hours! In general it was a super nice experience and I would never decide otherwise. I will definitely fly back this year and work there!

CM: What should models who want to come to Istanbul prepare for? What do I have to pay special attention to?

You can’t really prepare yourself, as I said, physical fitness is important – like everywhere else, even if you have chosen your profession as a model! You should pack plenty of creams and cleansing agents that you always use and prepare yourself for a hard everyday life! Istanbul is a 23 million city, there are 12 castings in one day, with travel times of up to one hour! In some areas you should not leave your apartment in the evening, as it can be dangerous! As in any big city, there are poorer areas that should definitely be avoided! We had really done everything right with the location of our apartment in Sishane!

model-maennermodel-rene-ausland-job-modeln-eu-istanbul-trends-blogger-blog-interview-(12)

In Istanbul, respect counts

CM: Cultural differences: Do foreigners in Istanbul and Turkey in general need to pay attention to anything? Are there certain “rules” and “customs” that everyone should respect / What is different about life there than in Germany?

In Turkey, people always treat older people with respect, get up in the metro for older people and leave them sitting down. Some Germans should be aware of that! Typical customs are people wiping their plates with bread to make it clear that they are full! In my first days I was surprised that people still wanted to give me a second helping until someone enlightened me!

CM: Would you recommend Istanbul for working for models from Germany? Why yes, why no?

I would definitely recommend Istanbul to the German models, because we can really get many jobs and are extremely in demand there! You gain a lot of experience for the job and get very good pictures from top photographers to expand your own portfolio! For me there is no reason not to work in Istanbul!

Hamburg Events – Fashion, Glamour & Party in the North

Hamburg is a city of fashion in Germany. In addition to Berlin and Munich, you’ll meet some celebrities in the Hanseatic city at the right place at the right time. Whether shopping on Jungfernstieg, Mönkebergstrasse or luxuriously on Neuer Wall, at one of the hippest fashion events in Hamburg, during an interesting fashion exhibition, or at celebrations in the exclusive clubs in Hamburg, one thing quickly becomes clear: Hamburgers have a flair for fashion and like to show this with the help of noble brands.

Lets get chic – fashion shows, workshops & more

The fashion event in Hamburg “let’s get chic” offers exhibitions from the areas of fashion, accessories, beauty & more as well as spectacular fashion shows of new designer collections in the location “Uni Hamburg”. In addition to the presentations and exhibitions, stylists and make-up artists will offer workshops on new trend styles of the season. So that women can enjoy the day in peace and quiet in the 7th fashion heaven, there are also so-called “men’s corners” at the Hamburg fashion event instead of a children’s paradise. Instead of bouncy castles, the male companions, who are less interested in fashion, can make new acquaintances at the table, challenge themselves to a round of FIFA on the Playstation or crown the day with a few snacks and drinks.

Kennt Ihr noch die PETRA?? Wir ja und sie kennen uns nun auch, schaut her: Aktuelle Ausgabe April 2015 – jetzt im Handel! Danke PETRA!

Fashion Event at the Star Hill – Fashion@Home Event Brigitte

The “Fashion@Home” fashion event in Hamburg, organised by the renowned women’s magazine Brigitte, combines the feel-good atmosphere of your living room with the glamour and glamour of the fashion industry and “geitĂŒpfelt” with a few guests from the prominent scene. The location, the fashion loft in the Sternschanze, convinces with its young, exciting and exclusive ambience. The concept of the event: A perfect mix of fashion and music event with exciting show interludes and tasty snacks in a cosy atmosphere – glamour and enjoyment at ease. Similar to a beauty contest, the models not only present the latest fashion highlights, but also entertain the guests with vocal or dance performances. A prominent “coffee klatsch” of a slightly different kind – under the sign of fashion, whereby the so-called “living room” functions as a catwalk and the “guests” become part of the fashion spectacle.

 

Museum of Arts & Crafts – Exhibition Department Fashion

The Museum of Arts & Crafts in Hamburg boasts an impressive collection of fashion treasures. More than 10,000 unique items from women’s, men’s and children’s collections. The “red thread” of the exhibition in Hamburg: a documentation of the development of fashion history from the middle of the 18th century to the present day. Designer fashion by some well-known designers such as Yves Saint Laurent, Wolfgang Joop or Alexander McQueen shape the collection. From haute couture, to pret-a-porter, from avant-garde fashion to fashion that was shaped by Antwerp, everything is united in the Museum fĂŒr Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg. A fashion journey through different epochs, styles and traditions. The presentations change in various special exhibitions.

Party in Hamburg – Celebrating after the event in Hamburg

After the various fashion events in Hamburg, from fashion shows to workshops to exhibitions, those who are not tired of glamour and glamour can end the evening in exclusive clubs such as the Golden Cut or the Moondoo or visit one of the successful musicals such as “King of the Lions” or “The Miracle of Bern”. In addition to fashion, an exclusive lifestyle and the Port of Hamburg, the city in the north of Germany is known for another thing: celebrating in Hamburg on the Reeperbahn. Those who want to get to know the “typical Hamburg” better can visit the Reeperbahn in St. Pauli after sunset. Fashionable highlights, such as the shrill, colourful costumes in a travesty show in the Olivia Jones Bar on the Great Freedom, can also be admired here.

Model Johanna in Athens: Greece – modeling, living and working abroad

Going abroad as a model – a constant theme for many models, both New Comers and professionals. With a stay abroad, some plans come your way, you will be rewarded with plenty of experiences – no matter where in the world you are. Many young models are concerned about whether they can cope independently abroad, what exactly awaits them and which country or city is the right choice. Johanna von Cocaine Models is currently on the road as a model in Athens. I spoke to her about her stay abroad in the Greek capital.

Model Johanna – modeling in relaxed Athens

CM: Johanna, you are a model in Athens until the end of February, how did you get there?

I was already working here in November 2014 for one month, now my agency asked if I am available again and I came back. My agency in Cologne has put me in touch with the agency here in Athens.

CM: Why Athens of all places? What attracted you to Athens as a model?

I didn’t choose Athens directly, it turned out rather like this. But it is a beautiful city with a relaxed working atmosphere & the weather is wonderful.

Johanna-Model-Sedcard-Fashion-Editorial-Commercial-Catwalk-Onlineshop-Tv-Portrait-22

CM: Would you recommend Athens as a model city?

I would recommend Athens as a model city so far away that you can get good pictures here. Most models come to Athens to take good pictures and gain experience, not to earn the big money, because the payment is rather meagre. But to make contacts and get good pictures Athens is absolutely recommendable.

Modeling Experience Athens – Preparations & Experiences

CM: How did you prepare for your trip there?

Actually one does not have to prepare oneself really great, the hotel is booked before by the agency for the model and one must actually only book his flight and fly off. It is important to plan your meals on site before your trip, as not all apartments have kitchens and you are often on the road the whole day. I always take a few plastic cans and plastic cutlery with me so that I can cook my food on the spot and take it with me during the day.

CM: What are your experiences as a model in Athens so far?

Firstly, the people in Athens are mostly very friendly. Everything is very relaxed! On the other hand, there is always work here. There are many good photographers in Athens and clients are loyal and book you back when they are satisfied with you.

CM: How would you describe the model target group in Greece, which model types are in demand?

Blond and brown-haired models are the absolute favorite here, Asian and dark-skinned models have it rather hard here. Besides, the Greeks don’t like “too skinny” girls that much. One of my friends was even cheated a few centimetres more on her hip for her sedcard.

CM: Which castings should you attend and which jobs did you get during your time in Greece?

There are castings every day for the most different jobs, there is everything. You go to castings for fashion shows, TV commercials, online shops, magazines, editorials or campaigns. Anything you can imagine. I did some shootings for online shops, for example for sunglasses or clothes, such shootings are enough for every model here, two campaigns +TV spot, web campaigns, editorial for a magazine and more.

Johanna-Model-Sedcard-Fashion-Editorial-Commercial-Catwalk-Onlineshop-Tv-Portrait-21

Johanna between Castings & Jobs – Breakfast, Coffee, Castings

CM: What is your daily modeling life in Athens like?

Get up, make breakfast, then on the way to the castings or bookings get a coffee, which is super cheap here, then it goes with the metro, the bus, the trolley or on foot to the casting. There you are usually five to 10 minutes and then you go on to the next casting. Bookings, on the other hand, are more relaxed. The model has a given arrival time, as a model you are usually on time and then wait an hour for the client or the make-up artists. Then, on average, eight hours or more are worked.

CM: How did you live and how did you get it?

Each agency has its own apartments/hotels for the models, in which you are automatically accommodated. I stayed at the hotel last time, too. There you share the room with another girl and if you are lucky you will find the bathroom in the room, otherwise you have to share the bathroom in the hallway with the other hotel occupants. There is also a small kitchen where you can make yourself something to eat. Accommodation in a hotel costs 17 Euro per night and will be deducted from the money you receive. But this time I live with friends, it’s cheaper and you have more space.

CM: How did you spend your time in Athens away from modeling?

In the evenings you often go out, have fun and have a drink. Otherwise you can of course visit the Acropolis and other sights. I also spend a lot of time in the shopping streets and when I have a day off I go to the sea.

Athens – Highlights & Recommendations

CM: What are your personal Athens highlights?

The Acropolis in any case, one should go up there once, alone to enjoy the view! This is completely free of charge for European students. Another highlight are of course the new friends and the hours together. An insider tip: The spinach feta pie which you can buy here in all bakeries is great and should be plastered on every visit to Athens.

CM: What do you recommend to other models who go to Athens for a while?

Calmness! Even if you are a young model who is a little panicked for the first few days, you are never too late in Greece. Furthermore, I can only recommend a good contact to the local agency. I have seen that if you visit the agency more often and maintain a good relationship, you get a lot of help and the agency gives you some opportunities. Always take sunscreen with you, because I even got a little sunburn in February!

CM: What does the modeling industry in Athens and Greece look like?

She’s definitely big! There are many jobs, albeit for less money. Due to Greece’s financial situation, one can certainly imagine how people have to struggle with it to pay enough. Nevertheless, there is work for every willing to work! I haven’t met anyone here who hasn’t worked. Nevertheless, the market for Male Models is very narrow, because there are enough Greek boys on site.

<Johanna-Model-Sedcard-Fashion-Editorial-Commercial-Catwalk-Onlineshop-Tv-Portrait-14<

CM: Is a stay in Athens worthwhile for models?

Not necessarily to make big money, but for good pictures and a lot of experiences that really take you further. You can also earn money, but it may well be that in the end there is not so much jumping around when I look at the payment here.

CM: What did you notice positively in Athens, what rather negatively?

The friendly people are positive! Absolutely negative is chronic lateness.

CM: Are there any cultural differences that a German visitor should take into account?

One thing is very unusual: You can order coffee at the bakeries and it will be delivered to you wherever you want! this is super practical! Another big difference and for many probably a big change: Smoking is going on everywhere inside, whether at the shooting, in the restaurant, in the club or at the casting.

Johanna: “Now I’m a pro in posing”

CM: What do you take with you to Germany from your time as a model in Athens?

Many new friends and experiences. Also some pictures, which I can use for my book and fortunately also my earned money. I also take many new contacts with me, which I will certainly be able to use when I come back. One thing I can say for sure: After your stay in Athens you will be a professional in posing for online shop shootings! That’s something every model here takes with them.

Johanna-Model-Sedcard-Fashion-Editorial-Commercial-Catwalk-Onlineshop-Tv-Portrait-15

CM: For which models with what ambitions do you recommend Athens?

I think Athens is something for models with experience as well as for newcomers. Of course you should have a reasonably good book, but you don’t have to work so much to get a foothold here. You shouldn’t be shy either, because you are rather small for a model, because there are rather less fashion shows taking place here.

CM: Dear Johanna, thank you for your interview!

Berlin Fashion Week 2016 – Model Manager: Behind the scenes

Twice a year the fashion industry is drawn to the capital for Berlin Fashion Week. While visitors and the media are mainly interested in shows, buyers and managers from various stores and fashion houses meet at Berlin’s fashion fairs. They all take place parallel to the different fashion shows. In 2016, public events focused primarily on two locations: The “Runway”, beautifully located at the Brandenburg Gate and the “Stage”, Berlin Mitte and easily accessible by shuttle bus from the “Runway”. From Monday to Saturday the motto was: Fashion! Over ten shows, various side events and aftershow parties every day. There was something for everyone. Highlights this year included Marc Cain, Guido Maria Kretschmar, Anne Gorke, and many more. The absolute highlight, however, was the “Candy Fashion”, Key Looks by FashionID (Peek & Cloppenburg) with numerous looks from Esprit to comma; A hall full of cotton candy, sweets and style – but later more about the

Fashion Week Model Management – Preparations, Emails and Networking

For us as managers, Fashion Week naturally starts weeks before – in December. Work starts about six weeks before Fashion Week. In addition to the notebook, the smartphone is a constant companion. The first show packages will be released by the designers. A show package contains among other things the models’ sedcards, but also Polaroids and walking videos. Major modeling agencies are already making special efforts to get the coveted invitations – some even create special sedcards for this event. Why? Fashion Week represents the who is who of the fashion world. Those who can afford it are present here. Therefore it is important to start work early enough. The better the planning in advance, the smoother the castings, fittings and shows run!

While an agency is already rushing into travel plans, overnight stays and the organisation of appointments, the invitations to the castings are gradually coming in. As mentioned above, about fifty individual shows will take place during Fashion Week. This means that there are almost as many model casings in Berlin in advance. A real job.

Models, catwalk training, print sedcards – preparation is half the battle

For us there were almost thirty interesting casting dates this season. We had 10 of our New Faces & catwalk models on site. Just arrived, the rented AirBnB apartment is already being converted into an office for the team. Notebooks, smartphones, casting lists – so that we can work and coordinate perfectly in Berlin, directly from Potsdamer Platz. Advantage: Digital company! We can work anytime and anywhere, so we like to accompany our models on shows and shootings.

We have four days! From notebook to reflex camera, we have everything in our luggage. Monday starts Fashion Week and a few days before, the castings. Most of the Berlin Fashion Week castings take place in the hotels, Berlin Mitte. Anyone who has ever been to a casting knows that many models are coming. Mostly there are even hundreds from all over Germany and partly Europe. Each casting takes place in separate floors and rooms. Immediately after the entrance the first beats form in front of the rooms – from now on it’s time to wait until you can stand in front of the jury. Suddenly the huge hotel lobby is full of people, small suitcases and waiting looks.

Day 1: Arrival and the first casting plans for the shows

Friday 15.01.2015: The Berlin Fashion Week AW 2016 always consists of two parts, the castings and the shows. For spectators often only the important days with the big shows count. For models, however, the days before are crucial. Here, before Fashion Week, model castings for shows and fashion shows take place throughout the city centre. Hundreds of models gather in the capital’s large hotels, but also in showrooms, Ateiliers and agencies. All major agencies are present here. Fashion Week does not only mean prestige, you can make excellent contacts and get to know a lot of new things. The Berlin flair also gives the Fashion Week its unique character. Many models book into the hotels around the city centre. This makes the castings easier to reach and also in the evening there is some time to have a drink with friends or new acquaintances.

Day 2: casting, casting, casting

Saturday 16.01.2015: For four days models and fashion agents speed through the city centre. Everyone is looking for the best jobs and the biggest shows. In the bag are only the most important things, the smartphone is always ready to hand and from morning to evening it goes from casting to casting. While there is a lot of walking during the day, the evening is decisive for the planning of the next day. Which casting should you attend first and which last? Where to find good food quickly and easily? Besides, you have small talk with other models, get more castings. Four days is all about seeing and being seen!

Who knows Castings of Germanys Next Topmodel will be surprised. There is no big stage, no spotlights and only rarely cameras. As a model you have hardly any time, not ten minutes, maximum thirty seconds. Who convinces spontaneously, is often still briefly measured or sent directly to a fast fitting. The jury consists of three or four people who have to evaluate hundreds of people according to purely external criteria within a few hours. As a result, castings often seem impersonal, but this is purely due to time.

The castings usually take place in large city centre hotels, with large rooms and plenty of space for hundreds of models waiting for their Gosee. Small groups are always forming in the waiting rooms, everyone is waiting for the casting call, then the show starts. With the model book and sedcard, the jury is made up mostly of designers, marketing people or other media and production people. Usually there are three or four people. The model walks up to the jury and introduces himself, often with very little time, many only seconds. Many models see here for the first time how big and how strong the competition is in their own and in other model agencies.

Those who have convinced often get a call from their model agent the same evening with the confirmation. Especially good models are also quickly booked so that they are still available for their own fashion show. So the best Mdoels have their success experiences already early – if they did not have first a Direct Booking.

The time in the casting requires a lot of commitment, organisational talent and willpower from the models. Even after the sixth performance on one day you still have to laugh and enjoy your job – even if there were six cancellations before. With this know-how, however, models can learn a lot for jobs and also strengthen their own self-confidence as well as their own perception. The short, but very intense situation with hundreds of other models, shows many a realistic picture and spurs them on to do even more.

The first castings for the shows start Thursday/Friday and then run until Monday evening. Occasionally, however, castings are also carried out before and even during the current Fashion Week. So if you are thinking of joining us as a model, you should plan ten days off.

  • Castings you get almost only with a large, serious model agency or an experienced model agent
  • Show castings go from Thursday to Monday
  • Berlin Fashion Week from Tuesday to Saturday
  • So as a model you should plan on 10 days
  • At least Thursday to Tuesday

 

Fashion Week Castings and decision of fashion designers

Many designers or agencies usually make their decision on the same day. They will then contact you via all channels to secure the best models. Because every fashion show includes a fitting and calltime. During fitting, clothes are tried on the models, which is usually very quick and only takes thirty minutes. The call time is then, so to speak, the start of work on the show day. All models, brand-up artists and stylists gather at calltime. All models get their assigned clothes as well as their styling. The calltime is therefore often a few hours before the show so that all models are guaranteed to be ready and the show can start on time.

  • Big competition: hundreds of great models meet each other
  • Often there is little time left for individual castings
  • Don’t forget your sedcard

The Fashion Week is much more than castings and shows. At Berlin Fashion Week, thousands of buyers from all over Germany come together in the various order fairs, less spectacularly and media-wise. Whether Panorama, Preium or Seek. Outside the shows there is also a lot to experience for people from the fashion industry.

Order and Fair – the heart of Fashion Week

For many outsiders, Fashion Week means above all shows! Fashion shows are held daily at various locations. In 2016 (Autumn/Winter) everything will focus on the collections of the coming Spring/Summer season. While snow still lies outside in the streets of Berlin, buyers jump from fair to fair to cover themselves with the latest trends.

One of the major order fairs is the international fashion fair “Premium”. At hundreds of stands, merchants crowd together large and well-known brands. Buyers can view and order the latest samples directly here. The fair is only open to trade visitors, so fortunately you have enough space to concentrate on different looks, cuts and colours. While strolling from hall to hall on the Premium, there are small delicacies, coffee and also small and large highlights of the exhibitors all along the edge. Not only fashion, but also accessories and jewellery. At the “Premium”, the manufacturers even fill their own hall. Further fashion fairs can be found all over Berlin. Among other things, there are still the “Seek” and “Panorama”, all only a few underground or suburban train stations apart.

Fittings for the big fashion shows at the runway

For model agents and model agencies, the final phase is now underway. It takes less than an hour to recharge your phone. While Desigenr’s assistants call to request models, models request the first fitting and call times and in parallel the first confirmations must be sent via e-mail. The phone doesn’t stop for three days and as a manager it’s hard to get away from the notebook. Therefore the show list fills up, confirmation for confirmation. Models receive asap their information and designers the booking confirmation. Even on Monday evening, plans are still being made for the coming morning – and off we go: It’s Fashion Week!

Shows and events at Fashion Week

From Tuesday to Saturday there are now possible shows and aftershow parties of the designers. Ten designers will kick off on Tuesday. Already on the first day it became clear that there would only be a free minute again at the end of Fashion Week. Our first show this year was “Ivanman” on the “Stage” in the me Collectors Room. Early in the morning, 11 o’clock. Already last season Ivanman made a top start. Oh, this year. Immediately afterwards we went on with “Nobi Talai” in Berlin’s Kronprinzenpalai with our Yulha. Followed by a very floral show by the designer “Lena Hoschek”, perfectly arranged in one line from the place card to the stage. After that jump to the greenshowroom in the Postbahnhof, where our Alex had his first show, parallel Anne and David ran for Odeur at the “Runway” Brandenburger Tor. And the day was only half over – show after show it went on for the next four days.

Fortunately, we were not only allowed to run on the first show, also on Friday two of our models, Helena and Lisa, on the final show of “Ioana Ciolacu”. With creative make-up and strong pictures afterwards.

The big finale: Candy Fashion – KEY LOOKS Show by FashionID

The biggest highlight of the current fashion week took place on Saturday in a “small” circle of people. Top models, stars, agency and media representatives met at the KEY LOOKS Show from “FashionID” by “Peek & Cloppenburg”. The motto was “Candy Fashion”. The entire lobby of Fashion Week at the Brandenburg Gate was transformed into candy and cotton candy land – everything looked like a Katy Perry video. Really great staged by the set designer. Between cotton candy and human-sized lollipops there were cool, refined drinks at various bars, a great DJ and many little surprises and snacks. Almost two hundred people gathered left and right around the catwalk, which in turn was decorated with cotton candy at the entrance up to the ceiling, pink light and lollipops made the picture of “Candy Fashion” perfect.

At the beginning, eight models from a classic cotton candy wagon stood across the catwalk with sweet sugar threads. That put a smile on almost everyone’s face! Shortly thereafter, Showtime, the keylooks of the coming season, was available in all Peek & Cloppenburg stores and online on FashionID. With fashion by Esprit, Marc Cain and Max&Co. Moderated by Annemarie Carpendale (Red and Taff on ProSieben). Each collection got its own music, its own staging for the audience. Our Johanna also attended and showed a total of three looks for the spring/summer season 2016, culminating in creative outsfits for the fashion magazines – each editorial team put together their favourite pieces from the new collections and combined them with accessories and other pieces. Thus, new creations and looks for 2016 were immediately lost.

CM – Models Berlin

Sedcard-Shooting: A multifaceted location and top fashion photographer

A suitcase full of make-up, a motivated model, various picture backdrops. For a sedcard shooting with our model Katie, our Cocaine Models team has pulled it near the Rhine. In Deutz, on an office building forecourt, there is a versatile location which is perfectly suited for a multi-faceted sedcard shooting due to its different backdrops. With make-up artist, photographer, model and good weather the shooting could start. Michelle tells you what it looked like behind the scenes during the shooting.

Sedcard shooting: A windy start

It is windy when our Cocaine Models team arrives in Deutz. Our make-up artist Anschi and our model do not let themselves be disturbed by it and start directly with the make-up refreshment. In our studio in the Mediapark we already applied the basic make-up, straightened the hair and tried out the different outfit variations. Our model Katie will first pose in a cheeky, clean outfit: Short shirt, tight blue jeggins and high sandals, optionally with leather jacket in biker style. Our photographer Oli takes the first test photos. The weather is good, there is always the sun between the clouds. One more short brushing of the hair, then we start.

 

 

Sedcard obligation: Clean images

Katie poses for the first photos in front of a clean, shiny black wall. This location in Deutz has many facets. Our photographer explains that this versatility is the special thing about the selected location. There are many different possibilities for different image creations. In front of a clean wall, on benches in the green, on futuristic round islands with trees or on the large white stairs with a view of the Rhine and Cologne Cathedral. A new blinking angle: In front of a mirrored house wall or further down, away from the forecourt in front of a somewhat dirty wall, which is ideal for rocking pictures. Katie walks up and down in front of the clean wall, the wind blows through her hair. She does her best, almost every shot a hit. Katie’s intense blue eyes shine and we are thrilled.

Many-Sided: From clean & cheeky to sexy & rocky

The wind is easing, but it’s still cooled off. The next outfit is coming up. The T-shirt is replaced by a long black-transparent blouse with long slits, the blue Jeggins by a black one. Katie’s changing around the corner behind our reflector. She’s cold, her arms get goose bumps, but she’s biting her teeth together. It’s important that she doesn’t show on the pictures. She’s a professional. Our make-up artist builds eye shadow palettes on a wall and provides small hair rubbers. Katie is rocked up, the blue eyes are accentuated by dark smokekey eyes. Her hair draped through large and small braided braids into a sexy mane. Anschi tries hard and after 20 minutes we see the sensational result, WUNDERSCHÖN!

 

 

Large image selection – Many viewing angles

Oli’s working on some portrait photos. Katie sits casually on an island and poses. Her looks are strong, she changes her expressions. A sensual look, a clean look, an evil look – Katie offers our photographer a lot. Oli is satisfied, for him a successful shooting, because he does not have to give many instructions: Katie knows what she’s doing. Matching the sexy rocker outfit our team moves to the wicked, stylish and dirty wall. Our model’s black blouse blows in the wind around her slender legs. The nude-coloured lips are slightly open, the blue eyes look challengingly into the camera lens. SEDUCTIVE! The panorama in the background DREAMY. The sun shines through the clouds, the cathedral stands majestically above everything. Oli snaps and it flashes, the capacity of the memory card is soon used up. The sedcard shooting was a success. We have a large selection of pictures from different angles & with different posings for Katie’s sedcard.

 

 

Finally, even the photographer is pulled briefly in front of the lens. He wants some snapshots of himself and his muse Katie. Oli’s doing well in front of the camera, he’s got the posing skills. A decisive advantage for a photographer, because he knows exactly what he expects from a model and can also convey and demonstrate the poses exactly. Our make-up artist packs her make-up case, brush by brush. Katie quickly puts on something warmer. We take a quick look at some of the shooting pictures and are delighted. GOOD JOB!

Modeling Abroad: Malia in Cape Town – Jobs, Castings and Models in South Africa

Going abroad as a model – a constant theme for many models, both New Comers and professionals. With a stay abroad, some plans come your way, you will be rewarded with plenty of experiences – no matter where in the world you are. Many young models are concerned about whether they can cope independently abroad, what exactly awaits them and which country or city is the right choice. Malia von Cocaine Models is currently on the road as a model in Cape Town. I talked to her about her stay abroad in the South African dream city.

Model Malia: “Cape Town was a coincidence”

CM: Malia, you’ve been modeling in South Africa for several weeks/months. What have you experienced there as a model?

Here you experience a lot – from shootings, sight seeing, surfing to shark diving. Cape Town is extremely diverse in every respect.

CM: How did you discover South Africa/ Cape Town in particular?

I’m honest, Cape Town was more of a coincidence. My friend wanted to spend a semester abroad at the university and I thought I could just come along and model there. Since we went on holiday a year ago and had an agency there, it was very easy to implement the plan then.

CM: How did you prepare for your stay in advance?

In the end you don’t have to prepare for Cape Town, the only difficult or “long” one is the work visa, so you should plan about 2-3 weeks until you have all documents together and drive to the embassy in Berlin. It’s also important what clothes you take with you. I say this quite explicitly because Cape Town does not offer good or high-quality shopping opportunities (in terms of shootings). So if you plan to test, you should bring some clothes.

Malia about the possibilities as a model in Cape Town

CM: What are your experiences in Cape Town as a model so far?

There is a lot of competition on the road, casting can be longer than you want and direct booking unfortunately doesn’t exist. The jobs are great and you have opportunities you wouldn’t have in Germany and the tests are great.

CM: From your experience: Which models are particularly in demand in South Africa?

Ü30 models with blond short hair. Also male models.

CM: What does the modeling industry in Cape Town look like?

There are extremely many agencies and in the summer (German winter) the customers make a pilgrimage to Cape Town and produce there, due to the low costs. Yes, the model fees are also about half as good as in comparison to Germany. You feel like in a German village, because there are extremely many German models/photographers/MUAs on site.

CM: What jobs have you done in Cape Town so far? How did they go off?

Sport jobs, a lot is produced there in this respect, but also TV commercials. The process is no different than in Germany, perhaps one difference: after the casting there is always a callback, i.e. a second casting. If you are taken then there is one day only for fitting and then it is only produced. The days are long because you start shooting very early (because of the light). People rarely work over lunchtime because the light is too hard and it usually doesn’t continue until the afternoon.

CM: What are your typical daily routines in South Africa as a model?

The agencies communicate via SMS and send you the casting. Then you go to the different casting studios and hope that not 100 other people are waiting for the same casting. Waiting times vary from 10 minutes to 4 hours per casting.

There are normal castings (here the waiting times are 1-4 hours) and “requested” castings (there you are specially requested, have an appointment and usually come directly to it). Requested castings are always the ones where you have the best chances, because the customer has already selected you based on his pictures and wants to see you.

CM: How do you live and how did you get your place? What do you recommend?

The agencies help or provide accommodation. But I’m not a fan of model apartments and that’s why we chose Airbnb for our own accommodation. This was not directly in Cape Town City, but only 15 minutes away, cheaper and on the beach – which I personally like better. If you are an independent person and like to organize yourself, I can only recommend such a thing. If you are perhaps unsure, you should seek the help of the agency.

Malias Cape Town Highlights

CM: What are your personal Cape Town highlights?

My highlight was one of my last test shootings with the photographer Jacques Weyers (photographed for Elle Southafrica and World of Swimsuits among others). We shot an editorial, which was very important to me personally and in which I could find myself very well. Besides, I was the only model Jacques tested with, which was like a little knighthood for me.

CM: Which model hot spots would you recommend to other models?

The Food Markets in Cape Town are amazing, and I’m also a fan of some restaurants: Kloofstreet House, Cafe Paradiso, Simply Asia, Beluga and Black Sheep. Osumo makes the best smoothies and to celebrate: Era, Tschin Tschin Rooftopbar, Shimmy Beachclub.

CM: What do you like about modeling in Cape Town? What is more problematic?

I find the locations in Cape Town fantastic. If you want to do tests, you can have extremely many settings and improve your book very much.

Another problem is that the fees are unfortunately not so good and you have to be careful about the crime in Cape Town.

CM: What does a model have to pay special attention to in South Africa? (rules, customs, differences to Germany etc.)

Cape Town is very Western/European, but yes there are townships and crime is high. In the evening when it gets dark you should not go out alone or to the beach, you should not carry too many valuables around with you, carry too expensive clothes, get involved in conversations in the street or just go with people. You should just pay attention to what’s going on around you. When you rent a car, you have to expect people to drive extremely badly and uncoordinated. We had a little accident because someone drove into our car (only fender damage) and my credit card was stolen from the machine. You just have to be aware of these things when you are there and plan to fly there. Nevertheless, you don’t have to be afraid on the spot, because if you just pay attention to these things you are safe.

Cape Town for the Model-Book – Germany for the Model-Gage

CM: What do you take with you from your stay in South Africa to Germany?

Cape Town is good for the book and for the experience, however, one simply has to say that one is “on paid vacation” there and that Plus Minus Null will return to Germany.

CM: Would you recommend South Africa, especially Cape Town, to other models? Why?

I think for Newfaces Cape Town is great, you can build your book with great photographers, especially in terms of commercials. Then I also think that Cape Town is very good for models Ü30, because the market there is very versatile and as a model you can work there very well even in old age. If you fall into this grid or simply want to gain experience abroad I can recommend Cape Town, but if you think you will make the big money there I have to say, unfortunately, stay in Germany.

CM: Dear Malia, thank you for the interview!

Wellness model, beauty model, hand model & hair model

Many young people want to become models. But for which area? Many people outside the model scene do not know that models are not the same. Of course, a model can be active in many different areas, but few have real success in all areas. There is a very simple reason for this: the different areas, such as beauty and wellness, catwalk or commercial, require different conditions. These can be combined, but often they cannot be combined in one person. While a catwalk model should be particularly tall and thin, it is more important for the commercial sector to have a beautiful face and a pleasant charisma. But what is the situation in the beauty and wellness area?

How important good beauty photos and spots are, you can see in the advertising!

What is a cosmetic or beauty or wellness model?

A beauty or wellness model often works for cosmetic and body care lines or the health care sector. That is why it is very important for the models to care for their body and face optimally. A clean skin, full and shiny hair, a firm figure. These are the ideal conditions to start out as a model in the beauty and wellness industry. Without these keys, no matter how beautiful your face is, how bright your eyes are or how tight your legs are, you have no chance! The top priority for a beauty and wellness model: the right care.

5 simple care tips for beauty models, wellness models and hair models

Removal of makeup

Quick to bed, with or without make-up? A Beauty-No-Go! Every evening, no matter how late it is, remove the make-up! Not only your bed linen, but also your skin will thank you for it. If you do not remove make-up properly, you will cause skin blemishes. A sticky mascara not only scares your roommates on the way to breakfast coffee, your eyelashes can also break off and you lose more eyelashes than usual. And, as you know, a woman can’t have eyelash volume enough.

Hair Care: Economical washing & care

Wash your hair as rarely as possible. A lot of people turn up their noses at the thought of it. But it is by no means unkempt if you only wash your hair twice a week, on the contrary! Your hair will thank you for it. You will get used to the rhythm and after a short time your hair will no longer quickly become greasy. They become considerably more robust, do not dry out and shine more. In addition, allow a hair treatment to take effect once a week. But beware: don’t overcare your hair!

Secret weapon for tired eyes

You worked until 8am, didn’t find an end at a party or just had a bad night’s sleep? A morning look in the mirror is enough to see: You can’t go to an audition or a job like that! Your eyes are reddened, swollen, and you have dark circles around your eyes. The simple instant solution: Cooling and caring eye pads from the drugstore. A maximum of 10 minutes and your eye area will not only feel relaxed, but also look that way. The simple secret weapon with immediate effect.

Naturally full lips

Not everyone is naturally blessed with full and rosy lips. There is no reason to run for a beauty doctor or make permanent make-up. A good (!) lip balm with vitamin A stimulates the microcirculation in your lips. This makes your lips look plump, soft and rosy.

Naturally beautiful skin

Skin care is a decisive criterion for clean and beautiful skin. The first step is to find out what skin type you are. Do you have oily, dry or mixed skin? If you have analyzed this, for example at the dermatologist or beautician, then you should use appropriate products. You should invest in a day and a night cream. Moisturising care is particularly important for young skin. Be careful not to over-oily your skin, as this will cause annoying pimples. In summer a light moisturizer is usually sufficient, in winter you should choose richer night creams. Perfect for dry skin: An effective moisturizing serum that can be applied under your make-up. You should also make sure you get enough sleep, an average of 7.5 hours a day, and drink plenty of water.

Application areas for beauty, hair, hand and wellness models

Beautymodel – Cosmetics, make-up and hair products

Beauty models can be used in different areas of advertising. Whether in magazines, on advertising posters, flyers, in a TV or online spot or at a live show. The face is in the foreground.

Handmodel – professional for details and product presentation

Handmodels are used in advertising especially in the nail care industry. Also for commercials or advertising images for products that are operated by hand, such as smartphones.

Hair Model – Full shine for new commercials

Hair models are mostly found in TV commercials, online, print or poster advertising for hair care products or hairdressers.

Wellnessmodel – charisma plus beautiful figure

Wellness models are used in the health and wellness industry. For example, to advertise wellness centres, beauty studios, fitness studios or pharmacies. Wellness models are also used in sporty photo series in magazines.

Model Marie Dahmen: Sexy posing, sweet smile

Marie Dahmen in interview

CM: You’re still quite new and haven’t gained much experience in the modeling business, where does your interest in modeling come from? What do you like about modeling?

Marie: I am very interested in the variety, diversity and beauty. I also enjoy playing different roles.

CM: Was that already in your childhood a dream to become a successful model?

Marie: Yes, even as a small child I was very interested in it and it has always been my dream job.

CM: What do your parents think of your job as a model?

Marie: My parents have mixed feelings about this. They range from pride to joy to concern.

CM: You still go to school, how do you reconcile that with modeling?

Marie: I realize that it’s not easy to reconcile the two in the long run, but I can’t say much about it yet, as I’m still very new to the business.

CM: You’re still very young, where does your self-confidence come from? How do your classmates or friends react to you modeling?

Marie: I have two brothers, through them I was forced to develop self-confidence haha. My girlfriends and my boyfriend think it’s very good that I started modeling because I’ve always talked about it and they always told me to finally apply. You wish me that this life’s dream will come true.

CM:What do you think is special about you and how do you stand out among other models?

Marie: I just really enjoy being in front of the camera and that’s the joy I radiate in the pictures. Because I am very self-confident, I also express this in the pictures.

CM: What is your big dream, what do you still want to achieve in your future?

Marie: First I want to take my Abitur and then, if possible, study in Cologne. Of course I want to go on modeling and see what the future will bring.

CM: Dear Marie, thank you for the interview!

Fashion interview: Fashion & Lifestyle behind the scenes

With FIV Magazine we are realizing the new interview portal for fashion, fashion, lifestyle and VIPs together with editor-in-chief Michelle Hamacher. Already in the first weeks we were able to attract exciting interview guests. The two fashion designers around the fashion label holyGhost were guests just a few days after Fashionweek Berlin. Model and full-time Mama Shermine Shahrivar. Fashion blogger Kiamisu, and much more. From Berlin, Hamburg & Co. we are looking for new stories, bold collections and the most beautiful ideas, all around fashion and lifestyle themes. Fashion Interview, our new fashion online portal, is set to become one of the major interview online magazines in the coming months.

interview with fashion designers, media managers and photo models

Through our daily work with creative people, advertising agencies, film productions and fashion designers, we always come across new ideas and great stories. But not everyone is told! In order to change this, we wanted a website for fashion interviews that would run on the couch both in the underground and comfortably on a tablet PC at home. With great effort and great partners we have implemented our idea in the last weeks.

Now online: Fashion Interview – the fashion portal for designers, models & Co.

From today on you will find new and interesting interviews on Fashion Interview almost daily. Always up to 2-date and directly from the fashion metropolis. You can also find the interviews on Facebok and Instagram. Always & everywhere.

Exclusive Model Coaching: Catwalk Training and Personality / Acting

Personality. Posing. Catwalk. Sunday morning started our long prepared model coaching in our agency building in Cologne’s Mediapark. Two experienced model coaches, Lutz and Omega, supported our Cocaine Models team with a personality coaching and a catwalk training for the models. The response was great and our models were highly motivated to improve their skills. Michelle accompanied our models and gives a short insight into the exclusive model coaching.

Well structured model coaching

At half past nine our Cocaine Models team starts with the last preparations for the Model Coaching in the Mediapark in Cologne. Screens are set up, small snacks prepared and the camera equipment checked. The first models arrive on time at half past nine. We are excited and the models are already looking forward to the exclusive model coaching. The day is well structured, starting with personal coaching at Lutz, followed by catwalk training at catwalk expert Omega. Besides, short videos of our models are shot and Polaroid photos are taken.

 

 

Personality coaching with modeling professional Lutz

Lutz enters the room, numerous pairs of eyes examine the self-confident personal coach, who also works as an experienced model. His charisma is likeable and engaging, we are convinced: He can give our models a lot in the matter of “appearance” with customers. He talks entertainingly about his experiences in the model industry, emphasizing how important the charisma and body language alone are for the first impression. Very important: Our models must understand that their body is the decisive working instrument. A training in advance is very important, everyone must get to know his body exactly. The charisma is not only conveyed by emotions, that is new to many. Body Language: An underestimated means to show character. The models must take up space with their aura and show full presence. Interesting: Customers read the characteristics of potential models based on their posture, without many words is a judgment made, job: Yes or no!

 

 

How to convey emotions correctly

How do I look sexy? How do I radiate grief when I’m not sad at all? How can I develop anger at the push of a button? Typical thoughts and problems of a model. Acting talent is a must in the modeling business. Just like an actor, a good model must be able to slip into different roles. While the models learn different posing tricks, our photographer Oli takes Polaroid photos and performance videos with each model in single passes. English language skills are tested: Everyone must introduce themselves briefly in English. Lutz goes through some exercises with the other models and lets them recreate typical situations from everyday model life. Shy models have no chance to hide in the crowd, Lutz proves his skills. After one and a half hours, Lutz is almost unstoppable and our models are thrilled, the personality coaching is coming to an end. In cooperation with Lutz, our photographer Oli carries out a short sample shooting with some of the models in front of the group. The newly learned posing techniques are immediately demonstrated. The coaching has had an effect! Our models skilfully implement the learned posing tricks. At the end of the training Oli gives the models some tips for working with different photographers. Now the whole team deserves a short break. The small snack buffet lures with different delicacies and coffee smell fills the foyer.

 

 

Catwalk Coaching with catwalk professional Omega

Catwalk professional Omega is already waiting motivated in the event room. Our models occupy their seats with fresh energy and satisfied faces. Omega starts with a big smile and a short straight-walk. WOW, he knows his stuff. His top catwalk rule: Every catwalk performance is about selling! Pressure and internal tension are good, but there must still be a special serenity. The presentation on the catwalk must be controlled, yet relaxed and natural. Fashion is in the foreground, the models only present the products. You have to play a role not only during photo shoots, but also on the catwalk. Omega introduces different catwalk types and does some exercises with the models. The event room is filled with sales rattling, the models improve their weaknesses under Omega’s instructions. Omega spreads a good mood, the models are motivated and constantly improving. Especially the posing turn turns out to be a small catwalk trap. No problem! The group takes it with humor: Like actors on a film set, our models repeat their walks until Omega gives his “Go”. The final walk ends the instructive and entertaining catwalk training. Let’s hear it for Omega!

 

After the success comes the relaxation

The last show videos will be available soon. Our entire team is gathering and the models are performing their new Catwalk arts. Satisfactory feedback goes through the round. We are proud of our protégés and grateful for the great work of the coaches. A successful Sunday comes to an end. From 5 pm the models make their way home with many new insights. Our Cocaine Models team takes down the props and sets off for the well-earned weekend.

Model Booking: How do I book a model for photos and advertising?

Models are booked for different jobs under different conditions and expectations. The respective customer has certain ideas and criteria according to which he selects a model. He informs the model agency concerned of his criteria and usually sends a mood board, which tells the agency more about the context of the assignment. There are basically two options for model bookings: Either a customer has browsed the model file of the model agency concerned and already selected one or more models, which he would like to invite either to the Casting or book directly. However, it is also common to ask the model agency to select models according to the criteria and send the client a selection of models.

Prerequisites for models in commercials and commercials

In order to become a successful model in a serious model agency, a model must have different requirements. For a model agency it counts whether a model is well booked. Oaks of carcasses are regularly sorted out. A model must have a very good figure, means slim, taut, the right measurements. Of course, the optimal sizes differ more closely between male and female models. Male models can do more exercise than female models. Their main aim is to have a firm and fit body, i.e. cardio training and light muscle training are sufficient. Too much muscle and weight training makes the muscles in a female model become too wide and the assumed measurements are no longer optimal.

The optimal measurements for men and women?

Female Models: The Prerequisites

Female models should be at least 174 cm tall. Smaller models can be successful, but the chance is very small. Therefore the size is a decisive criterion for a model agency to include a model. The optimal measurements for female models are 90-60-90.

Male Models: The Prerequisites

A male model must have a slim and defined body. The minimum size is 184 cm. Especially tall men can have problems in the model industry as well as men who are too small, as they do not fit into the designer’s collections. The maximum size of a male model is 194 cm.

Character & Strength are strong attributes for advertising models

Besides the physical requirements, the mental requirements and the character of a model also count. A model has to prove strength, discipline and endurance. Jobs are often strenuous and time-consuming. A good model should not feel tired or stressed. Motivation and ambition distinguish an experienced model, the customer likes to book such models again, this is very important for a model and the model agency. Furthermore, a healthy self-confidence and the changeability of a model are decisive selection criteria. From this total package the charisma of a model is formed. A customer tries to convey his products and services to consumers through a model. This succeeds through an optimal mediation of emotions. Emotions are aroused by the charisma of a model, including facial expressions and gestures. A model must be able to slip into different roles in order to “sell” the product/service to the consumer. Authenticity and naturalness are the magic words to captivate consumers so that the customer’s concept works.

Character? That’s Chand from Stockholm!

Modeling! Job opportunities in the advertising industry: online shop, showroom and TV spots

There are many job opportunities for a model. The body is the tool of a model and therefore the capital. A model advertises a customer’s products and services. This can be done via various carrier media. A model can be booked for poster advertising, magazine editorials or covers, online presence, TV commercials or similar. On the catwalk a model presents fashion collections or beauty and styling products/services. The body is the screen for the catwalk appearance, but in the commercial area (advertising) also counts the facial expressions and gestures of the model, which leads to the sales promotion of the products/services.

Modelagenturen – Agency for photo shooting and construction of models

A serious and good model agency is very important for a model. Although a model can work without an agency, the risk of a model being exploited is enormous, especially abroad. The tasks of a model agency include the placement of good (for serious, well-known customers, a good salary) jobs. The model agency ensures that a model is not underpaid, especially abroad models are often enormously underpaid. In addition, the model agency ensures a good image of the model. A serious model agency takes a model’s uncertainties and supports the model with questions. A model can have several modeling agencies. We recommend a parent agency and a good agency in each major city, such as Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Cologne / DĂŒsseldorf or abroad, e.g. in London, New York, Paris or Milan. Customers all over Germany and all over the world can book a model, for example a model book Hamburg, model book Berlin or model book London.

Model Guru Lutz Marquardt about model agency and mother agency

What is the difference between a model agency and a parent agency? Model agencies are exclusively responsible for the mediation, a parent agency, on the other hand, builds models, arranges photo shoots with good photographers and later places models abroad with large and renowned agencies in Milan, Paris, London or Shanghai and New York.

Book model: prices and agency commission in Germany

The payment of a model is managed by the model agency concerned. The model agency issues an invoice for the client and negotiates the prices with him. New Faces are generally cheaper than experienced models. With the experience and the level of awareness of a model also the price of a model increases.

In Germany, the agency usually charges 20 percent commission for referrals to customers once the model has completed its job. Abroad this agency commission can vary and also amount to up to 50 percent. In addition to paying the model, the agency usually requires a so-called AP from the client.

BRAX Store Opening – Fashion Highlights with Gala, Douglas & Co.

Can I get you another snack? Small delicacies and creative invitations: We were guests at the BRAX Store Opening in Cologne, presented by Douglas and Gala. Among others Frauke Ludowig from RTL Exclusiv and we, Cocaine Models were there. The little who’s who of the Cologne fashion and media world. Here is our Recap for the BRAX Opening in Cologne:

BRAX Store Opening

Isn’t it true that it’s far too rare to get letters? About two weeks ago we had a really nice invitation in the mailbox. With fancy stationery and a personal invitation. Slightly glossy paper, modern packaged in a semi-transparent cover and with beautiful handwriting. So much trouble, then still in Cologne, one says gladly yes! That’s why we were particularly pleased about the elegant invitation to the store opening right from the start.

Fashion Highlights for Men & Buffet

Around 5 p.m. we locked all the doors in the office, smoothed our hair once more and set off. After a short stop at the Asian’s, we continued directly on the way to the city centre (Breite Straße 1). Even from a distance, the large structure could be seen in the Breite Straße. Even in front of the store were large headlights, flash systems and various photographers. Of course, behind the red carpet there was also the obligatory photo screen with all important sponsors of the evening, including Douglas and the gala. After the friendly security man let us on the red carpet, we were also intercepted directly by the BRAX manager: Photos! Let’s go… a few poses for the gala and pure 200 square meters of fashion for ladies & gentlemen.

The Location

So after we posted well and passed the start with flying colours, nothing could go wrong anymore. Closing time. Network. Red wine. We quickly went on to the BRAX Store. Since there were already some people there, it was relatively full. Nevertheless, one thing immediately catches the eye: chic, elegant and stylishly furnished – was my first thought! About 60 invited guests gathered on the first and second floors of the new fashion store. Below is a DJ house and relaxed lounge music, behind him are shirts and polo shirts neatly sorted on the shelves. Women in colourful cocktail dresses are also entertaining themselves. Most male guests are in suits, classic, grey/black. To the left and right of us are small snacks, aperitifs and wine. Everything that belongs to a good shop opening. After a hard day’s work, everyone here is happy to relax a little, chat with colleagues and stroll comfortably through the new store.

The Highlights

BRAX has really come up with a lot, from high-quality letterhead with individual invitation lettering to your own Gala Magazine cover. Snacks for the guests (… and we all know that love goes through the stomach). Of course not only we from Cocaine Models were there, but also a few other people from radio and media. Among other things, Cologne actors were present and of course one thing should not be missing at fashion events in Cologne: The RTL Exclusiv Team. And so Frauke Ludowig and Kena Amoa were guests in the evening. The collections in the store are well chosen and mature. Just as beautifully draped for a first glance – so close to opening.

On the second floor there was a very special highlight…

Photo shooting with the gala

So that every guest at the BRAX Opening can take something special home – of course also in their own model or advertising agency – a special highlight was placed on the second floor of the store! An extra photographer with canvas, flash systems & Co. The highlight: Each team could pose once for a gala cover. In only two minutes the covers were edited, cut and printed. Presented with a chic folder it was a really great idea! There was also a Douglas “refreshment stand” where you could try out all the new fragrances, from Hugo Boss to Gucci. We teamed up with some actors from the TV series “Alles was zĂ€hlt” (RTL) and tried and found some great new perfume creations (but we don’t want to advertise here).

Only a few minutes later we took our Gala Magazine cover in hand and returned to the first floor of the store. Also here there was a lot to see, besides the DJ of course countless outfits, trousers, shirts and ties for the coming season. Isn’t it said, pictures say more than a thousand words? So here are a few impressions from the big store opening in Cologne:

BRAX – now in Cologne

There is now fashion for men and women on two floors with the latest trends and styles. BRAX in Cologne is easy to find, only a few minutes’ walk from the main station or from the nearby Appellhofplatz underground station. It is located in the centre of Cologne and can be easily reached by foot or subway. We wish you much success and thank BRAX for the cordial invitation.

The next date has already been set. Friday we go to Frankfurt am Main to see the Escada summer / autumn collection for the year 2015. Of course we will also take some pictures at the Escada fashion show!

Fashion & Fashion Trends: The History and Philosophy of Clothing

Fashion is not fashion. And what is fashion anyway? Let us first examine the term fashion. Simmel, a classical sociologist, already distinguished the term fashion from the term functional “everyday” clothing in 1905. Clothing fulfils a purely functional human need – as well as protection against cold or rain. Fashion, on the other hand, is something else! Fashion is also a social need. That is why today we look at the history of fashion and its influence on society. Below you will also find great videos about 100 years of fashion!

Thanks for the contribution to Book author & Social Media Manager Stephan Czaja.

Fashion becomes a cultural asset – fashion has existed since the beginning of mankind

Fashion existed already at the beginning of mankind First, as described above, it was a purely practical product for early humans to protect against external environmental influences. The first fashionable excesses occurred in the late Middle Ages, but it was not until the 20th century that it became a cultural asset and lifestyle product for almost everyone. Designers, top models, fashion labels, they all gained media and social attention through the first film premieres, the upcoming TV and thanks to print magazines. Fashion has been a social cultural asset since the 20th century and has become a persistent mass phenomenon at the same time.

For the first time clothing became “fashion” by working the fur with the first sewing needles. Thus, external demarcation and individuality gained in importance in society for the first time. Clothing became a status symbol. People of the Renaissance era are still familiar to many people today. You all know the Sun King Louis XII, but for a long time fashionable clothing was reserved exclusively for the aristocracy – ergo, it was only late a general social cultural asset. Elaborately manufactured clothing became affordable in the 19th century, thanks to industrialization, but for more and more people. With increasing prosperity, practical, simple clothing rapidly lost its importance. Fashionable clothing became a product and cultural asset for the first time.

Fashion industry – off-the-peg trends and collections

Women and men – fashion as an industrial product

Not only fashion itself was in demand, also the fashion world, individual brands and models. Also the media and advertising filmmakers of that time quickly discovered the new, prominent designers and designs for themselves. Designers were able to produce their haute couture in large quantities and standard sizes due to increasing demand and new industrial possibilities. And just as the sewing needle brought about the first great change early in human history, the new industrial mass production of fashion also led to increasing possibilities for demarcation and individualisation in society. Industrial production made fashion faster to produce – but also interchangeable. Fashion became “everyday life” with various multicultural influences.

By the end of the 21st century, fashion had become a gigantic industry media and advertising, especially magazines, TV and, since the 2000s, the World Wide Web, were spreading new trends faster and more globally. But is fashion now an individual question or a product of purely qualitative standards – like many others? To explore fashion and its fundamental social origins, it helps to turn to a classical sociologist: Simmel’s “Philosophy of Fashion” (1905), which is referred to in the following chapter.

  • Clothing is a useful product for protection against environmental influences such as moisture and cold. Fashion is a social need.
  • Only in the 20th century did fashionable clothing become a social cultural asset until it became a gigantic industry in the 21st century. Today, everyone wears fashions, whether in individual groups or according to generally accepted patterns.

Fashion trends – media and trend research

What are fashion trends? Trends define social trends in their beginnings. From the first individuals to global effects. Fashion is also an essential term in media and trend research. Fashion (as described above) is not the same as clothing. Ergo, if people only wore appropriate clothing, fashion would be superfluous. Here the “philosophy of fashion” comes to the ultimate conclusion that fashion can only work as fashion if it presents its difference from the factual practicality (of everyday clothing).

The term fashion stands for something new. This difference is essential, especially for fashion labels that are strongly dependent on trends and often exclusivity. It determines the value of the fashion pieces but also the impact of your own brand. This can quickly be seen in the different class fashions. The classification shows how trends (fashions) develop.
According to Simmel, the fashions that emerge are always class fashions. This means that the fashion of the higher classes is different from that of the lower classes.

fashion philosophy – more than just clothing

In his time, Simmel (1858-1918) pursued the fundamental question: “How is society possible?” For him, interaction is what makes a functioning society. The interaction of the individual individuals with each other. They result from the forms of socialization, whose contents can be of the most varied nature and as many as desired. Socialization means that individuals form groups and form common values. Besides religion or money, it’s fashion. This creates common patterns according to which groups and their individuals are guided.
