Advertising agencies – advertising is a broad branch in the field of marketing. But what does everything count among them? And why is advertising one of the best paid jobs in the model business? In addition to poster advertising, flyers, catalogues, advertisements and general print advertising, advertising clips, both for TV and the Internet, are also part of the range of advertising. Through the instruments, for example the carrier media, companies try to polish up their image on the market or to set it at all. And I do it deliberately!
You are as a model part of the marketing strategy of Brands
Well worked out marketing strategies are behind an ultimately simple advertising campaign that is spread through the media. The companies try to address their target group directly and to communicate with them on a different level, also to influence them. The aim of this is to make customers feel addressed, identify with the company and finally increase the sales market. In order for the company to achieve these processes optimally, it is important to find the right models for the right advertising. Ultimately, it is these that carry the company’s message to the customer.
Advertising in national markets: commercials and shootings for “all”
Washing machines, laundry stands and detergents. Advertising is much more than fashion and new smartphone. Household products, insurance and supermarkets. For national markets, advertising is produced that is close to the end consumer, less in terms of values such as “lifestyle” and international “jet set”. Here one tries only rarely to arouse the international life feeling in the consumer, mostly it concerns the advertising agencies here around familiarity. Instead of high class parties, in national advertising families tend to drive their new car into the garage, where they simply make a fresh pizza at home in the oven. The family meets at the table, everyone laughs! In the next spot, friends sit at the lake grilling while they drink a cool drink. Afterwards a family father and his daughter are happy about the cheap car insurance.
As a model in advertising, you naturally have countless areas in which you can become active. Just a glance at your mobile phone shows you all shops, all websites, all companies book models or buy picture material. Looking back at the advertising posters, it’s not just fashion companies. Banks, insurance companies, automobile manufacturers, telecommunications companies, they all advertise.
What challenges are there as models in the commercial area?
Many New Faces work well with fashion because their facial expressions are still relatively rigid. That makes her kind of cool and as long as you’re very young as a model, it works. At some point, however, the demands will rise. From the first shooting with five models, who play a group of close friends for a commercial, up to one of the most difficult tasks in commercial photography: family shootings! Therefore a little insight into how difficult it is to capture emotions in the perfect moment from all involved. There are also children on the set, no professionals and maybe a family dog who doesn’t always do everything on command.
Family shootings with kids and spouse
For example, you must learn to interact with children and other models. For a single photo, the same motif is often shot over several hours. They are all just waiting for all models to convey the perfect emotion at exactly the same moment. For example, the father should throw a ball to the child, while the mother joyfully clasps her hands and the dog lies perfectly. So the scene is repeated, over and over again. Really exhausting! With every single shot you have to bring out the emotion again and again. A really challenging job that requires a lot of practice and skill.
Large campaigns require a large team – for a single photo
Especially photos that look simple on the advertising poster have often been produced with a lot of effort and large teams. The campaign is initially planned in the advertising agency over weeks and months. Afterwards, photographers will be booked for the photo shoot, technology, the entire location, catering and much more. Anything for a photo.
The success of a photo shooting depends at this moment therefore crucially on you. Your performance must be available at the push of a button. Your smile must be perfect even if you had a long night flight the day before. And even when you’ve barely slept. Even if you’re sick, you can’t stop a production so easily. Experienced models are therefore a lot of value on the set, they reliably bring their performance.
Advertising in international markets: Requirements are even stricter
While in the individual countries the focus is very much on the average consumer, international advertising often looks for international dimensions. That means: Perfect body, full hair, charm and style. International top models offer this mix.
Milva Spina – a successful model at the age of 52. The Linzer has been working in this industry for years, but is more popular than ever. In the beginning she had to struggle with her height of 1,68m and was not noticed by model agencies. She achieves her breakthrough by sending her own Pola’s to all photographers. Horst Stasny gets attentive and shoots them. With his help she manages to join Visage-Models Austria. Jobs all over the world follow. Not only magazines like Elle want them on the cover. It can also be seen in numerous commercials. Best Ager Model Milva travels the world for her latest job.

Minimum dimensions for men and women
The requirements for models differ for male models and female models in their body size, why is that so? As you can read in our article about Pret-a-Porter and Haute Couture, fashion collections in particular are cut to size by designers. This allows uniform fashion shows to be held later, but also showrooms and photo shootings. Due to the identical dimensions it is easier for designers but also for event agencies and advertising agencies to plan concepts and shows.
Women are usually 10 cm smaller than men. If you want to take off as a female model in Berlin, you should have a minimum size of 174 cm, even better 175 cm. The ideal case for female models in Berlin is 178 to 180 cm. This gives you the perfect size to work as a model. A minimum size of 185 cm applies to men models in model agencies. Ideally, you shouldn’t be over 6’8″. At High Fashion Models the figure should be slim, so you have the best chances to work for international high fashion brands. You’re more flexible as a Curvy model. But the body size should be similar. Here once again the most important summarized
- Minimum size for men Models is 185 – 190 cm
- Minimum size for women is 174/175 – 180 cm
- High fashion models should have a slim figure and a hip below 92 cm
- Plus Size and Curvy Models should have a clothing size of 42
Casting Outfit: Simple, so that nothing distracts from you as a model
As mentioned above – we just point out – you should have no styling / make-up at the casting, as well as at the photos for your application, plain clothing is the be-all and end-all! You should also do without makeup, your hair should be open. If you want to work for us in Berlin, it’s all about naturalness! No tanning salon, no gel nails, no hair extensions and above all no dyed hair! That’s why come to the casting absolutely naturally.
Plus Size Models and Curvy Models Wanted!
You know a beautiful woman with clothing sizes over 36-38? Then tell her now about our model casting on 13 April in Berlin. Already after our first Curvy Model Casting in Berlin, at the beginning of the year, we could find four new talents! They were already allowed to make the first showrooms. As a Berlin model you can go a long way, even if your measurements don’t suit the high fashion industry. Apart from high fashion, there is a lot of potential: catalogues, online shops, advertising and much more. Especially Plus Size Models are gradually conquering more market shares.

The Model Book: Become a Model – Handwritten over many months, with detailed research, simple steps and many insider tips for models! Everything about “modeling” and “becoming a model”. Maybe the new standard work. In THE MODEL BOOK you will learn in different chapters, step by step, one after the other, the entire advertising industry and its special features. As a model, especially as a young model, you have to pay attention to many details at the beginning of your career. What do you mean, you don’t know? Who accepts the wrong jobs, does not find the right agency or builds up his buck in the wrong direction, can quickly build up a bigger career. Models also have only a few years to reach the important steps. The better prepared you are as New Face for this time, the easier it will be for you to gain a foothold in the industry and earn money as a model. In the Model Book you will therefore learn chapter by chapter and step by step how to prepare yourself for the start of your modeling career.
The Model Book: Overview of models
In the first chapter you will learn all about the indispensable mental strengths of a model. What requirements do you have to meet, quite apart from the often perfect measurements, in order to convince as a model at photo shootings and advertising video shootings?
Self-confidence and organization: The A&O for models
For you, the most important thing here is your own self-confidence, four personal initiatives and self-organisation. As a model, you will be sent on journeys at an early age. Sei is at the age of 15 years in the next big city, by plane from Frankfurt to Hamburg or just a few months and years later across Europe and the world. As a model, especially in the high fashion world and in skin couture, the international path is always open. If you take your chances early enough and I prepare perfectly for them myself, you can go far. Quite different from television, real top models are less about the story, drama and self-production. For models it’s about absolute willpower and belief in yourself (yourself!). As you will learn in the next chapters of the book, as a model you will have to face many exams! Absolute trust is an absolute priority for your modeling agent and your modeling agency.
The perfect model agency for New Faces
Mother agencies, model agencies, fashion agents, boutique agencies and bookers – What?!
Before it goes to the big topic of model castings, the first showrooms and jobs, the book deals with the search for the perfect agency. Each model agency has its own portfolio and clientele. Often model agencies are very specialized in a certain area (advertising, high fashion, etc.). Also the size of agencies is different. There are some Modelbookers who hardly know anybody, but who have the best contacts and only work with 5-15 models. There are small agencies, large agencies with hundreds of employees and huge international model agencies such as IMG or ELITE.
In general, you can distinguish model agencies like this: There are international agencies, national agencies and regional model agencies. The more international a model agency is, the stricter are the requirements for your measurements, but also the higher are the requirements to be accepted as a model by this model agency (experience, pictures, etc.). With national agencies, advertising (supermarkets, insurance companies, etc.) is very often the issue, here it is not too important to have a perfect figure, with perfect proportions and exact body size. The measures in national markets therefore differ from those of the international standard. For models who work in regional areas, the dimensions count even less. This is often about smaller jobs and smaller fairs (hostess). As an international high fashion model, you naturally want to join the big brands, but of course you have to prepare yourself perfectly!
Serious model agencies: agency search and model application
In order to find the best agency for you and your requirements, you will learn in the book what a perfect model agency application looks like and how to find the best model agency for you! Many questions are also answered here, for example, whether you need a lot of photo material for your application The simple answer is: No, you just need Polaroids. The Model Scouts in agencies have a very trained view and can recognize by their experience of many years, already by simple Polaroids whether you have potential for the agency or not. Polaroids are super simple photos with the smartphone, in daylight. That’s it. If you want to know how to make perfect Polaroids for your application, read more here: Become a model. For your application you don’t need a long cover letter or to describe how motivated you are! There’s just a little bit of key information. These are usually your name, your place of residence, your contact details and three to four photos. You also write down your measurements: your body size, hips, waist, bottom and shoe size.
Your model folder: The best photos for castings & jobs
Once you have found the perfect model agency for you, you can start with the first test shootings with photographers! Of course your model agency will help you a lot to get only the best photographers. Your agency will also see to it that you get a wide range of material for your model portfolio. Many make the mistake of focusing purely on “fashion photos”. Especially when there’s no agency in the background to advise you as a model. My tip: As a model you should always make sure that your model portfolio is as multi-faceted as possible. Not every customer can directly imagine what one can make of you as a guy. The photos help the customer to make his decision. The more extensive your photo portfolio is in the model folder, the more likely it is that customers will be able to make bookings.
Someday your book will be so full, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Which photo do I put in the folder, which one not? With professional models, the folder is so strong at some point that they are booked more and more often directly. Direct bookings are very good because you don’t have to attend a casting and are not in a pre-selection. You don’t have to keep days off (“Option”), you will be booked directly by the customer for an appointment!
Test shootings with photographers: build up model portfolio and win jobs
So that you can build up your model portfolio perfectly, you’ll also learn in the book how to get your own test shoots (also called TFP shoots in Germany) from photographers. As a modeling agent, I have to deal with test shootings for our models on a daily basis, so here are a few valuable tips on how you should ideally write to photographers. What’s the matter with you? With the right cover letter, your chances of getting good test shoots will increase. There are some little tricks I’ll tell you in the book. In principle, it can be said that you should briefly deal with the photographer instead of “just” writing to him or her. You should also create a suitable moodboard. The more interesting the shooting is for the photographer of your choice, the more time-saving the shooting is, the higher is your chance for the test shooting! So take a good look at what the photographer has already done and what not.
You shouldn’t do too much with the test shoot, though. If I post a new photographer on Facebook and Instagram every day, your market value may drop quickly. Why should a big customer still pay a lot of money if “every” photographer is allowed to photograph you for free? With a professional modeling agency behind you, you will of course get direct tips and the best contacts so that you are as exclusive as possible!
If you take care of yourself and his portfolio, you should make sure that you want the photographer to expand your portfolio. If you already have five photo series with “Fashion”, maybe you should try something new! To help you do this, you’ll get all the tips you need to write the perfect letter to photographers.
Jobs, Jobs, Jobs: Welcome to the Model World
Daily business. We did it! You have prepared yourself well for being a model, written a good application, found a serious agency, built up and expanded your model portfolio, you get the first castings and voila: The first jobs! The tasks are then very extensive and varied. Unlike normal office life, you don’t have to deal with the same tasks every day. You won’t be working every day either. Sometimes you have free time, sometimes you will travel, sometimes you are already one day earlier on site for the fitting. In between, many young models study, so you’ll soon have a full-time job! Especially when you go abroad.
First you will start your career with small jobs for online shootings, you will work on showrooms, maybe do some online shops and get your first commercials. When you’re ready, you’ll earn enough money to get to professional photographers and to bring your model portfolio to an even higher level with new photo series from top photographers! With new photos you will get better jobs again. At some point it will be time and if your model portfolio is full enough, your agency can also suggest you for abroad in its partner agencies. So even as a young model you can quickly get to the international metropolises, Milan, Paris and New York. Many models now also go to Asia, Shanghai and Hong Kong. But some also go to large production facilities such as Istanbul. But the Big Four remain the dream of all models: London, Paris, Milan and New York.
After the job: healthy life and beauty
A model’s job is really exhausting! So there is another chapter that deals only with how you eat healthily and how you live healthily. You will also get great beauty tips on how to take care of yourself, your skin and your hair even during strenuous jobs and many days of travel. You have many shootings, many appointments and often don’t find the time to cook something fresh for yourself. Then you have to go on to the next shooting and maybe you still have overtime. After eleven hours of shooting and “smiling”, you are absolutely knocked out back to the hotel. You’ll find the best tips on how to keep fit anyway in the book! The book not only shows you how to become a model and what you will experience as a model, you also get practical tips for the time after the jobs.
Smalltalk: Trends, Fashion, Haute Couture and Pret-a-Porter
After you can keep yourself fit in the hard everyday life of a model and eat a healthy diet, we go one step further: Networking! When you’re out and about at fashion shows or photo shoots, there are often people with a taste for fashion. Therefore it is good and important if you know a little about the absolute basics. Small talk is always important! Whether at the Fashion Week or in your model agency. Therefore, an entire chapter is devoted to the theme of fashion. Where does fashion come from, why does it actually exist? Is fashion just clothes or is fashion more? How do trends influence us? Who sets trends? It also deals with the two important parts of fashion: haute couture and pret-a-porter. Both fashion styles are very important for designers, as well as for models and the entire advertising industry and production behind fashion.
Fashion changes at any time. That’s why the Fashion Week in the fashion metropolises doesn’t just take place once a year. In Paris, Milan and New York there are more often big fashion events! “Spring/Summer”, “Autumn/Winter”, “Prefall”, “Fashion Week Mens”, and so on. New collections of fashion designers are constantly being presented. Meanwhile, backstage before, during and after the shows, you’ll be coming back to fashion again and again. So you know what it’s like to be a model in haute couture and pret-a-porter.
show the book in the chapter about trends and fashions!
Modeling abroad: Perfect dimensions, hard work and diligence
Now you have learned everything to make it in Germany as a model! For the best of the best it goes on now, abroad! Here you will get to know the big model world. At first quite small, with other models in a large model WG. Later, when you have convinced the first agencies of yourself and are booked again for the following season, also get to know new agencies and your schedule gets fuller and fuller, you have done it. Now you can get to know the world, travel and meet interesting people on jobs every day. This is the dream of all young models. Everybody wants to go to the big media circus when they say “I want to be a top model!”
The way there is long and as described in chapter 1, success is mainly connected with the mental power of a model. You have to be true to yourself, you have to believe in yourself! Not just for a few weeks, but for years. Even the biggest top models in the world and supermodels of Victoria’s Secret shows have taken a few years to really succeed and become famous. They started very early, were partly discovered very early by scouts and worked their way up for years, first beside school, then full time, to the “superstars” they are today for many.
The Model Book for everyone: The Model Book
Not every model will follow the path of high fashion and international advertising. The book also gives models on national markets a very informative insight, so that you as a “commercial” model can also take a lot of important things with you. You will learn a lot about the agency search, how to set up and expand your modelbook, how to find the perfect photographers, what jobs to expect and what opportunities you have to make a career as a model! I wrote the book for several months and met interesting people for it, as well as fashion photographer Oliver Rudolph. Part of the work was also created in collaboration with Michelle Hamacher. I thank you very much and look forward to further cooperation! With this book we give young, new models a realistic insight into the fashion industry and wish each one of you much success and the very best for your individual way!
Book Recommendations from Models
In the new edition you will not only find all topics but also more than fifty recommendations for model agencies in Hamburg, Berlin, Cologne/Düsseldorf and Munich.
Author: Stephan M. Czaja, owner and model agent at CM
After many publications about media, THE MODEL BOOK is my first work for models. It’s about being a model, but it’s also about your media coverage. Self-marketing takes up a large part, including the correct, first handling of media. In the model agency many questions reach us daily. The book is intended to give young models and new faces a good and optimal start, with good agencies and good jobs.
The modeling business. A constantly changing and very fast moving market. How multi-faceted and individual he is in the process of developing is not clear to most people. The ideal of beauty changes permanently and becomes more and more individual at the moment and accepts a mixture of already past ideals of beauty. The curves from the 1950s, in which Marilyn Monroe was the ideal image, mix with the still predominant Size 0 models and now introduce a new variable that is characterized by social media and the modern zeitgeist. Individuality is in demand. Tattoos, influencers, colorful hair or curves! The new Trend Plus Size in particular is establishing itself in the industry and growing permanently. Plus Size should not be confused with oversizes. Curvy models also play sports and pay attention to their diet. So it’s not fast food and lazing around, but ‘you are what you eat’ and so they live just as healthy and balanced to keep their weight on a level, because their curves must not and don’t want to lose them.
- Take a close look onto our curved models
Photographer Oliver Rudolph explains in an interview about ‘Curvy Models’: It’s nice that the market is expanding and women with curves are also in demand. Why limit it to an ideal of beauty? ”. If we are honest, very few of us wear Size Zero and can therefore identify much better with the beautiful yet realistic Curvy models than with the beauty ideal of the Vogue models. By using Curvy Models, companies achieve a much larger reach and can address a much larger target group, which increases their market value enormously. Also model agent Stephan M. Czaja explains: Curvy Models are great for advertising. Everything that’s different and new sells great and attracts people’s attention.
Even the fashion magazine Vogue, which has been known for size 0 and skinny models until now, has printed the Curvy supermodel Ashley Graham on the cover of the American issue in March and thus for the first time in history a plus size model has appeared in their issues. So you can see that even established large companies are accepting the trend and establishing it in the industry.
Curvy models are and will remain trend:
Plus size models are just as popular as fancy guys with tattoos. The beauty ideal changes into an individuality and now stands completely under the motto: Everyone is beautiful! ”. Whether wasp waist and giant bottom, as with Kim Kardashian, a completely tattooed body, as with Zombie Boy or curves, as with Ashley Greyham, Angelina Kirsch or Fine Bauer. The model industry is growing day by day and offers more and more niches for extraordinary types. Whether one of these ideals will ever replace the slimness craze and the Size 0 models, however, is questionable.

Rome – fashion city and tourist magnet

- Laura Biagiotti

Colosseo – You must see this in Rome
The Colosseum in Rome is the symbol of the city and is something you should not miss when visiting it. But Rome also has some other locations worth seeing:
- Palatin – The Seven Hills of Rome are really great vantage points. One of the best is the Palatine (Palatino), a green hill with atmospheric ruins, mighty pines and a splendid view of the Forum Romanum.
- Pantheon – The best preserved ancient monument of Rome is a remarkable building. The portico with the mighty columns and the squat walls is already quite impressive, but one gets a real picture of the Pantheon only when one has entered the interior. The enclosed space is huge, and when you look into the dome you feel tiny and insignificant
- Petersdom – not only Christians succumb to the magic of St. Peter’s, the largest and most spectacular of the Roman churches. Everything here is astonishing, from the prelude, the wide curved St. Peter’s Square, the grandiose façade to the richly decorated interior. The highlight is Michelangelo’s extraordinary dome, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture and one of the landmarks of the Eternal City.

Dining in an unforgettable environment
Going out for dinner is one of the great pleasures of Rome, especially in summer when you can sit outside and people populate the streets well after midnight. What could be nicer than enjoying fine Italian food and good local wine at a table on a pretty cobblestone lane while the turbulent city life passes by? And since you will find everything here – from elegant and romantic restaurants to noisy pizzerias or upscale ice cream parlours – everybody gets his money’s worth.
Rome and its unique places

Model Coaching for 2019: School’s out
Have you decided to become a model or would you like to give your model career more seriousness and work more professionally? Then the first step is to find the right agency. You already have an appointment at an agency? Read how to prepare for your interview here!
Become a model – Application and interview
If you want to apply to us, you will find everything you need to know about the topic here:
Why do you need a model agency for modeling?
An agency is very important for a model, because it supports and protects you as a model. She helps you find photographers and jobs. No matter if you are booked as a model for shootings or catwalks, the agency will show you in the best light. The bookers know how to present yourself optimally with your book. As “New Face” you will be supported by your agency in setting up your book and your setcard. One very important point: an agency protects you from dubious customers and dubious job enquiries. Usually dubious customers already shy away when they learn that a model is represented by an agency. This is particularly important for an international modeling career, because models abroad are often underpaid and exploited. A reputable model agency ensures that you do not work unpaid overtime, that you do not take dubious pictures of yourself, that you are adequately paid and accommodated. In addition, the agency will determine in advance whether the job is of high quality and whether you can be associated with the customer as a model without your image suffering as a result. At best, every job should prove your model qualities and positively underline your image.
How do you find the best model agency as a newcomer?
There are now plenty of model agencies. But how do I even find a suitable model agency? And when is a modeling agency serious? Your search starts on the Internet. It’s convenient if your agency is within your radius. That’s why you should simply enter “Model agency + your city” in Google and browse the results. Since it is generally important for a model to be represented in the larger “Mode & Medien-Städten” in Germany, you should search for “Modelagenturen + Hamburg/ Berlin/ München/ Köln/ Düsseldorf/ Frankfurt”. You’ll get some results. The next hurdle: Now how do you know which of the agencies are even serious? One possibility is that there are already ready-made model agency lists on the Internet that are constantly updated, for example the Vogue list. With this you can assume that only well-known and serious agencies are listed. However, as a dedicated model you should take a closer look at your selected agencies yourself before applying.
Criteria for serious model agencies in Germany
In order to find out for yourself which agency is serious, you should go through different steps.
- Step 1: The Agency’s website. Very important: A serious model agency has a serious website. A simple, clear design, a high quality board and information about the agency team.
- Step 2: The level of the models. Take a look at the model board and determine the level of the models yourself. The following criteria will help you here: Do the models have optimal model dimensions and an impressive face? Are the pictures of the models high quality?
- Step 3: Does the agency work with serious clients? You can easily research this on the agency’s website or on the agency’s social media platforms. In general, you can easily measure the seriousness of your customers according to their degree of recognition. Also the “likes” on Facebook or “Follwer” on Instagram show how well known and popular a model agency is.
- Step 4: Search the Internet for reports from other models or clients of the agency. Note that not every comment is true. In order to get a better picture of the agency you should read enough testimonials and reviews of the agency. To say it in addition is: See these evaluations rather than references, make you nevertheless own picture.
Find your perfect model agency – Summary:
Recognize reputable model agencies:
- serious customers (for example, well-known brands through advertising)
- serious models (appearance, dimensions)
- fixed admission criteria
- serious website
- Transparency regarding the agency team (for example through website)
Agency is not serious if:
- No/untransparent website (no naming of agency headquarters or agency teams)
- simple agency admission without preconditions and interview
- no cooperation with serious customers
- Admission fees will be charged
The model application
You have now found a suitable, reputable model agency and would like to apply as a model. What’s the best way to apply? Nowadays, applications are usually sent by e-mail, which means that you can find an e-mail address and a contact person to whom you can send your application via the agency’s website.
What must be in your application?
Most agencies publish their admission criteria on their websites. In general, you should state your measurements in your mail, i.e. chest, waist and hip circumference. You should attach great importance to the accuracy and timeliness of your measurement data, because an agency does not like it at all if you make false statements. You’ve never taken measurements yourself? No problem. No problem.
Take and measure measurements yourself
You simply measure your measurements with a normal tape measure. If you’re unsure, get someone you can trust to help you. To determine the exact circumference of your chest, the tape measure must be placed at the widest point of the chest and pulled to tension. Important for women: If you wear a bra when measuring, pull off approx. 1 cm, for push-up bras at least 2 cm. To determine the circumference of your waist, place the tape measure at the narrowest point and pull it tight. You measure the hip circumference at the widest point of your hip or bottom. The optimal model measurements for a woman (as a guideline) are 90-60-90.
In addition to your measurements, you should include pictures in your application. You should make a selection that shows you in different facets, i.e. commercial, fashion and beauty pictures from your book as well as simple Polaroids. You don’t have a book yet and no Polaroids? No problem. No problem.
Picture selection for your model folder
Some agencies prefer models who already have a certain selection of pictures. So you should start looking for different, good photographers. The easiest way to do this is via the Internet. Do the same as your agency search, i.e. search for professional photographers in your area, check their websites, look at their pictures and search for ratings of the photographers by other models. Important: Make a conscious choice. It is of little use to you if you thoughtlessly select numerous photographers who take similar pictures of you (for example, only fashion pictures). Rather, you should choose a few photographers who take different pictures of you in different “directions”, i.e. fashion, commercial and beauty pictures. Here applies: Invest rather a little more money, so that the pictures become qualitatively high-quality and convince. Only those who invest will benefit.
Polaroids for Models – Fast, clean photos
At some agencies even simple Polaroid pictures are sufficient for the application. You can do this yourself or get support from a friend or family member. Polaroids are clean pictures that show your body and face in different facets and give the agency a first impression of you. Polaroids show you in front of a white wall, a good exposure, without make-up, in plain, tight-fitting clothes (skinny jeans or leggings & simple top or T-shirt) and with women preferably in high shoes. One picture should be taken of you in underwear, on one picture you should laugh, on the other one you should look rather expressionless into the camera. Important: No big posing! The pictures should be simple and natural.
checklist for models
- Optimal & exact dimensions
- Optically neat look
- The special something (For example, strikingly beautiful eyes/lips, small features such as a tooth gap or a mothers meal, long & undyed hair, a special radiance)
- self-conscious, present & friendly appearance
If you meet all the criteria of the model agency and the bookers find you interesting, you will be invited to a personal interview at the agency.

If you are on the road in Berlin all day long, it is only understandable that hunger will strike at some point. But what should you eat with so much on offer? Don’t worry, we’ve picked out some great locations for you. From a noble restaurant to a delicious snack on the corner – there is something for everyone.
#1 Orlando – Sicilian cuisine and wines
Our first recommendation is the Sicilian Orlando in Prenzlauer Berg. The place, where owner Giulia Paolillo welcomes her guests like friends, is at the same time a delicatessen, kitchen for individual catering and location for relaxed events and family celebrations. There you can buy delicious wines, delicious caponata, coffee and homemade olive oil. Anyone who loves a culinary trip to Sicily is in the right place.

#2 India Club – From curry to other Indian specialties
Near the Brandenburg Gate, at the back of Hotel Adlon, the most elegant and exclusive Indian in town awaits you. Set in the British colonial style, tasty dishes with lots of vegetables, chicken and lamb await you. Of course, only meat of the highest organic quality is used. In a real Tandoori oven made of clay you get the most delicious and varied Indian dishes refined with the most diverse spices of Indian cuisine.

#3 The Bastard Berlin
Yeah, you heard right. The bastard is regarded as one of THE meeting places for a good meal. Breakfast is particularly popular there. On weekends, visitors usually queue up and you have to be lucky that someone gets up. The waiters politely ask that other guests be allowed to join them at the tables. The audience is, typically Kreuzberg, colourfully mixed and international. The breakfast menu is comprehensive, very varied and appealing. There are scrambled eggs, cheese and sausage as well as vegetarian and vegan breakfast dishes and delicious cakes. The homemade brioche are a poem – try it with cream cheese and jam. The coffee in the bastard is excellent. Apart from the long waiting time, the bastard is definitely worth a visit, as the breakfast variety is hardly comparable to that of another restaurant. So off to the bastard in Kreuzberg.
#4 La Stella Nera – Vegan and Varied
Don’t worry, for our vegan readers we have also found a mega location, the La Stelle Nera in Berlin-Neuköln. The menu offers you an unforgettable experience of Neopolitan pizzas from the wood-burning oven. Of course everything with high-quality, organic flour and, if you like, with vegan cheese or vegan salami. If you don’t want pizza there is of course, as usual with Italians, delicious vegan pasta. The pasta is also made completely in-house to ensure that no animal products are used. La Stella Nera also offers other Italian delicacies such as antipasti, salads and of course the finest homemade desserts. Créme Caramel, for example, is a vegan cream-caramel pudding with orange sauce, which is very popular with all guests. If you like it traditional, you can also order a vegan tiramisu for dessert. However, it is important to know that if you want to eat there, you should reserve a place beforehand. La Stella Nera is quite well visited and so spontaneous is the chance that you won’t get there.
#5 The best Döner in the world – Mustafa’s vegetable Kebap
Kebap fans watch out – nowhere is there a better kebab than at Mustafa’s vegetable kebap. We don’t make that up, every day hundreds of enthusiastic doner fans go to the snack bar at the Mehringdamm. For many this is even the only reason to come to Berlin. We constantly hear that people drive from the airport directly with suitcases to the popular snack bar to treat themselves to a kebab – unbelievable. However, you can’t reserve a seat there in advance. If you want a really tasty doner kebab for just under 3 euros, you have to allow for about 45 to 60 minutes of waiting time. However, every visitor can only recommend that you do this, because it is really worth it.

Berlin, the beautiful capital of Germany. In such a huge metropolis there is something to discover around every corner, from a small curious bar to a crazy flea market with a karaoke event. To coincide with Fashion Week, we have a few locations for you that you must visit to make your time in Berlin even more exciting.
flea market at Mauerpark
Everyone knows a flea market – here a few old cassettes from childhood and there a few dusty books. But if you want to have a special flea market experience, you have to check out the popular flea market at Mauerpark. Every weekend people flock to the location to get cool rarities, fashion, bags, design, vnyl, jewellery and much more. Apart from an incredible variety of things you can buy there, it also offers fun karaoke events every Sunday. There you can show what you can do in front of over 1000 spectators.

Missing the Sundays at #Mauerpark! 🌝 Haven’t been in a while and won’t go much this winter beside the month of December I guess, as cumulating the week job and the full Sunday at Mauer is quite a lot. Plus I got a lot of work on the website side! Already 50+ products listed ✨, but that’s not even a quarter of what I have. It’s kind of funny to put a number in front of my stock of #magic #jewellery! Earrings are tiny, who would have guessed that I have already so many?! Special ❤️ to my Sunday Mauerpark #bestmate @mayakennedytrepat from @mayastreasures_! Can’t wait to see your new treasures 😘 #jewelry #flohmarkt #flohmarktammauerpark #sundaymood #summerthoughts #marketlife #marketgirl #berlin #earrings #jewelrygram #instajewelry #onlineshop #comingsoon

The Television Tower at Alexanderplatz
Yes, it’s maybe one of the 0815 things you can do when you’re in Berlin. However, we can only recommend it to you – the television tower at Alexanderplatz. Berlin from above is nowhere better to experience, simply to Alexanderplatz, drive up and 360 degrees experience the big city. Also we can be inspired every time again to experience this view. Depending on the time of day, you may have to wait a while, as the rush can be quite high, but we assure you that it is worth waiting.

visit the most beautiful square in Berlin – the Gendarmenmarkt
Berlin’s most beautiful square in the historic centre of the metropolis is the Gendarmenmarkt. Anyone who is a fan of architecture and a breathtaking atmosphere should definitely pay a visit to the Gendarmenmarkt. The German cathedral alone is worth a visit. When you enter the cathedral you can see an exhibition of the German Bundestag. On the development of parliamentary democracy in Germany. The French Cathedral houses the Huguenot Museum. The French Friedrichstadtkirche is still in the lower part of the building. A must see for every culture fan.

Time for Mustafa’s vegetable kebap at Mehringdamm
No snack is as famous as Mustafa’s vegetable kebap. For 2.90€ and a lot of patience you get the “best doner kebab in the world” at Mehringdamm. Unbelievably many people even come to Berlin especially for this or come directly from the airport. However, the average waiting time is about 45 to 60 minutes. So it’s best to take a snack with you while you wait in line, because it’s pretty crowded every day. All we can do is tell you it’s worth it! Mustafa’s vegetable kebap is something you should not miss.
Shopping Time in the KaDeWe
If you are already in Berlin, you must also visit KaDeWe – Berlin’s most famous department store. Who doesn’t love shopping? We wouldn’t know where you’d have more fun shopping than at the KaDeWe. From Armani to Adidas you will find a huge variety of brands where you are guaranteed to find what you are looking for. But keep in mind that it is not the cheapest department store, as it is also one of the most expensive department stores in Germany. Although there are no Chanel, Prada, Gucci and co., there are other upmarket brands. But even if you don’t want to buy anything, the KaDeWe is worth a visit, even if you just want to admire the incredible architecture.

So you should travel to London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Hong Kong or Hollywood and take a trip to Madame Tussauds.
Men’s fashion to marvel at – Ivanman inspires again. Like every year, Ivan Mandžukić redefines men’s fashion with his unusual designs and unusual cuts. We watched his show live and are thrilled by the precision of his work.
Ivanman – fancy men’s fashion
The Berlin-based label Ivanman was founded in 2010 by designer Ivan Mandžukić . The graduate of the ESMOD Academy for Fashion Design founded the Ivanman brand with the aim of creating a combination of classic and avant-garde men’s fashion. The fashion label Ivanman sees fashion as a social phenomenon, analyzes it through deconstruction, examines its individual parts and then reassembles them in textile form. The result is a men’s fashion reduced to a minimalist style, characterised by sharp wearability. Simple but expressive details give the collection its special characteristics. The foundation of the Ivanman brand is a classic and modest fit. By adapting the details during the development process, fashion becomes a portable avant-garde collection. Yet the looks never seem to have been deliberately deconstructed. Currently, the Ivanman collections consist mainly of menswear and accessories, complemented by a few feminine looks.
Ivanman at the MBFW 2019
Loyal to its city, IVANMAN 2019 presents its collections on the catwalks of the Berlin fashion scene. Unlike most other shows, Ivanman is not a typical runway, but a pedestal in the middle of the crowd, where the different pieces with geometric cuts and bright colors are in focus. The models were discreetly styled to keep the focus on the clothes, but we can confirm that Ivanman’s new collection is hard to keep an eye on.
Ivanman at the Berlin Fashion Week 2019
It’s the time of the year again – Lena Hoschek will be joining us with her autumn/winter collection at the Fashion Week in the German capital Berlin. We watched the show live and are thrilled. Also this year Hoschek inspired with their unique designs.
Fashion with humor – Hoschek’s philosophy
Lena Hoschek is mainly inspired by the Hollywood stars of the 40s and 50s. Hoschek finds it exciting and interesting how the sex symbols of the 40s and 50s went through life with humor and didn’t take themselves as seriously as they do today. According to Hoschek, Maryln Monroe, Sophia Loren and Gina Lollobrigida are the most attractive women of all time, not only because of their looks, but also because of their incomparable personality, which is pure inspiration for Lena Hoschek. The spectrum of her fashion is very broad. Dresses, skirts, blouses, trousers, traditional costumes, pyjamas, glasses and other accessories are created and launched twice a year. Her customers include pop star Katy Pery and Charlotte Roche.
Lena Hoschek – Autumn/Winter collection 2019 at the MBWF
Lena Hoschek will present her collections for the first time in Berlin in 2010. A mixture of femininity and sex appeal remind visitors of the 50s. Today she is known as the ambassador of femininity and along with other fashion designers, her collections are always fresh and cheerful. The catwalk of the models is decorated with oriental patterns. Lena Hoschek comes on stage satisfied at the end and is applauded from all sides! A good finish for the young designer.
Danny Reinke comes from a line of fishermen. His father and great-grandfather were already fishermen, instead of continuing these traditions he broke the family traditions and that with success. Today known as an international star designer. At the MBFW we also went live to see his autumn/winter collection.
The first designer of the family
At the age of 6 he learned from his father how to use a sewing machine. This to continue the family traditions of the fisherman, but Denny Reinke had other plans. When he discovered fashion, his plans were clear – he wants to go high and create fashion. Instead of investing his time at a business school to study economics, he moved to Hannover to learn fashion design and ladies tailoring.
His first collection
In his final collection, he was inspired by the family business of fishing. At first his father was very sceptical about his son’s plans, but a look at his work changed his mind. Together they finished a sweater on ropes. The tulle dresses of the collection were anything but the typical dress of a princess, but had a very modern look, which he still retains today. Elaborate pearl embroideries transformed basics such as nude longsleeves and black bomber jackets into spectacular eye-catchers, because the motifs were mythical mythical mythical creatures in darkly dazzling colours. A touch of grunge and gothic blew through the designs from “Tempting Beast” without portraying the wearers as marginal figures of society. This fashion is well-dosed extravagance and wearable without being ordinary.
Danny Reinke at the Fashion Week Berlin 2019
The Autumn/Winter 2019/2019 collection is all about women, with tulle weaving techniques as the core element to remind us of his fishing family. The woman is shown as a “divine being”. Inspired by the #MeToo movement, this year he also convinces all fashion lovers of the Fashionweek 2019 in Berlin. Another characteristic of this year’s autumn/winter collection are blouses in silver brocade and pastel tulle. The blouses and trousers are embroidered with pearls and copper pencils in elaborate handicraft. We were thrilled to see this show live.
Marcel Ostertag, who studied at the renowned Central St. Martin College in London, founded his eponymous label Marcel Ostertag in 2006. With 16 shows presented at the Fashion Week in Berlin, it is an integral part of the MBFW. We were live again this year and were amazed by his show, like every year.
Marcel Ostertag – The Primeval Rock of Fashion Week
Marcel Ostertag is both maker and brand. Inspired by the streets of Munich and the special flair of the Viktualienmarkt, Marcel Ostertag designs his collections in his studio in the Gärtnerplatz quarter, which are produced exclusively in Germany. In his collections, however, the designer does not only pay attention to optics. It is very important to him that the person who wears his designs also feels comfortable. For this reason, he regularly visits fabric fairs so that he can guarantee good wearing comfort.
What does Marcel Ostertag stand for?
Love is in the details, says Ostertag. This is exactly what the designer wants to implement. Through details his collections should be timeless, preferably eternal. The designer himself says that his target group is not necessarily the rich and beautiful, but anyone who loves and appreciates quality and pays attention to details. It is important that your customers care about wearing things that only a few others wear.
Autumn/Winter 2019 at the Berlin Fashion Week
Like every year, Ostertag proved itself this year at the Fashion Week 2019 in Berlin. Made of matt rosé shiny sequins on a short pendant, he styles a rough turtleneck sweater in olive green and adds metallic buckles to the coarse, orange-coloured straps of the dress. His talent for material combination, which can hardly be surpassed, he simply proves again and again. We were enthusiastic about the production and are looking forward to the next Fashion Week to be inspired by him.
Rebekka Ruétz has done it again. Like every year she convinces with her unconventional and extravagant creations. Since 2010 Rebekka Ruétz has been inspiring the fashion world every year at the Berlin Fashion Week with her expressive outfits – made for the modern Amazon.
Ruétz and her fashion
Ruétz mode is characterized by unequal connections. Lush textures, twisted layers, as well as decorative and extravagant designs provide a recognition value. The colour palette of her creations is also very versatile. From peacock green to moss green. Night blue and underwater turquoise to plenty of reddish brown, bordeaux, autumn orange, amber, gold and silver as well as dirty beige and black. A skilful combination of basics and extraordinary material compositions provide each time again for tension. The designer started her relevant training at the Innsbruck Fashion Ferrari School. Then came the Academy for Fashion & Design in Munich, where she graduated as Best Graduate and “Cognos Relevance Award” winner. She gained experience in India and with designer Peter Pilotto in London. Since the label “rebekka ruétz” was founded in Innsbruck in 2009, she has stood on her own feet professionally. Rebekka Ruetz, born in 1984, has conquered markets in Germany, Austria, Italy and Switzerland with her label of the same name.
Rebekka Ruétz at the Fashionweek Berlin 2019
It gets dark, loud rock music sounds through the loudspeakers – finally it starts. We were there when Rebekka Ruétz presented her autumn/winter collection 2019/2020 at the Fashionweek Berlin and are thrilled. The combination of basics with extravagant and exciting details is once again a success. Unusual belts and cords adorned the outfits and told an exciting story about the designer’s view of the world. The viewer feels surrounded by an imaginary cloud full of charm and charisma. At the same time, however, it takes us into a modern, real world that is inharmonic, moody and mysterious. It’s hard to turn the gaze away from the show, every outfit is unique in its kind. We can hardly wait to see what Rebekka Ruétz has in store for us at the next Fashionweek.
Rebekka Ruétz at the Berlin Fashion Week 2019
After 3 years of silence Kilian Kerner is back at Fashion Week Berlin after the bankruptcy of his label. We were there when he presented all his 34 looks at Berlin’s E-Werk. Within a short time he has completed the 80 parts and is ready for the MBFW 2019.
Kilian Kerner is back under the name KXXK
Designer Kilian Kerner decided at short notice to take part in the Fashion Week. Without the pressure of having to pay 50 employees and investors telling him when to finish what, he presents his recovered “I” at MBFW2019. It is important to know that his label is not KXXK but still Kilian Kerner and that should remain so, says designer Kilian Kerner. He’s happy to be free to work as he pleases now. When he wants to take a vacation, he takes a vacation. The fashion world does not get rid of Kilian so quickly, because he loves his work, he loves the pressure to perform and he loves to show who he is. We are happy to be able to witness his comeback live.

Kilian Kerner celebrated his big comeback at the Fashion Week 2019 in Berlin. The outfits and music made us experience the city life on the runway. An exciting and colourful mix of looks ran across the catwalk and provided a varied and exciting show. At the end Kilian Kerner jumped personally on the catwalk with 2 models on his hands – the joy was written in his face. The audience raved and the fashion world took him back with open arms.

Irene Luft is already an established name in the fashion industry. At this year’s Fashion Week Berlin, she will once again be convincing with the theme “Dark Paradise”. We were there live for you and let Irene show us the dark side of the fashion world.
First Germanys Next Topmodel, then Fashion Week
Irene Luft founded her label of the same name in 2008. One year later she was already allowed to design a collection for the 4th season of the TV production Germanys Next Topmodel, which was then presented by the young models in the show. Since then, the luxury prêt-à-porter brand has inspired the catwalks of the world. The brand’s signature is its modern yet hard-to-define, feminine and romantic style with a touch of progressiveness.
Irene celebrates great success
After completing her studies at the Academy for Fashion and Design in Munich, she founded her own brand. Shortly after, the big breakthrough. Their originality and strong personality are reflected in the breathtaking dresses. By processing noble and expensive fabrics into fashion suitable for everyday use, they have attracted the attention of many great personalities. Her loyal customers include Franziska Knuppe, Verona Pooth and Viktoria Lauterbach. Irene Luft also has customers in the United Arab Emirates.

The dark side of Fashion Week – Irene Luft presents us “Dark Paradise”. Under this name, the various items of clothing run across the catwalk. Noble dresses with black lace, long gloves on which fringes are stuck with coloured accents let it appear elegant and noble. The make-up is selected to match the outfits. Light skin with black accents on the eyes and white contact lenses that give the overall look a certain “horror look”. We think it was more than just a show, Irene Luft gave us an experience with Dark Paradise.
Finally it’s time, the first show is over and we were right at the front for you. The start for a promising fashion week at Berlin’s E-Werk was made by designer Amesh Wijesekera from Sri Lanka. We were thrilled and have the highlights for you.
Who is Amesh Wijesekera?
Amesh Wijesekera had his big breakthrough as an international fashion star in 2016, winning the Graduate Fashion Week London’s International catwalk competition at London Fashion Week and attracting the attention of the world. The designer from Sri Lanka. Shines through his unique love for textiles and colour, which he brings to life with the help of talented tailors from his homeland. Handcrafted in batik mixed with unique, digital technology make for an incredible eye-catcher.
Also at the Fashion Week Berlin 2019 Amesh was thrilled again. His outfits inspire like every year anew. The mixture of masculine and feminine outfits has attracted attention. Men were also allowed to radiate a touch of feminism in fashion. Bright pink tops with fur elements and matching flare pants with orange stripes are not the first thing that comes to mind in men’s fashion. However, Amesh makes sure that it still comes across well and convincingly. Another core element of Amesh’s fashion is knitwear. Again and again we see combinations of knitwear, fur and crazy prints, which almost give you a space feeling.
Stefanie Giesinger at Amesh
With a talent like Amesh, of course the celebrities must not be missing. In the front row was the international top model Stefanie Giesinger, who showed her great enthusiasm for the unique looks. The surprise was written in her face, she doesn’t see anything like it every day. Especially the last piece convinced Stefanie and us. Two gold outfits that ran together. 2 men, hand in hand with flowers sewn to the clothes for a particularly feminine feeling. An outfit that radiates acceptance and tolerance. We are curious to see what Fashion Week has in store for us.

How do I correctly write a model agency? The model agency is very short, although many think that you need previous experience or professional photo shoots. In reality, you don’t need much, two photos and a few dates. Let’s have a look at what the perfect model agency looks like.
Fact: Model agencies have little time
The most important rule is keep your letter very short. Because in a renowned and good model agency, sometimes 50 to 100 applications arrive daily. If there is only one scout in the agency, he has only a few seconds for each application, besides the actual agency work. That’s why you have to score by your photo, not by a long cover letter.
Write to model agency: Contact Details and Dimensions
Your e-mail or letter should contain the following information:
- Name and first name
- E-Mail address
- Phone number
- body size
This basic information should be written to your model agency.
References and Social Media Accounts
Additionally you can add some more information. e.g.
- Instagram Channel URL
- YouTube Channel URL if you have more than 5,000 followers
- Experiences, if you already had jobs or references and customers
- Reference Links to YouTube or Vimeo for commercials
More information should definitely not be written to your model agency. Now we come to the actually important step, your photo! That’s right, the singular, photo. You don’t need an expensive photo shoot, no professional photographer, just you and a friend or a girlfriend, gladly also your mum or dad, who takes a good photo of you in the daylight. That’s it.
Application Photo for your cover letter
As described above, if you are looking for new faces, the model scouts have little time. 50 to 100 applications reach a good model agency on average per day. This means that the model scout only has a few seconds for each application and each individual review of the application documents. In addition to scouting new faces, his work also includes making new contracts, planning the first shootings and presenting the model to the team. So what matters is your photo! In principle, your application should not contain more than a maximum of four photos, but basically one photo or two is sufficient.
- full body photo
In combination with your height, clothing and age, the scout has all the important information for himself. The decision then only takes a few seconds. How can you make your photos too perfect?
Perfect Environment for Application photos
For your application photos you should definitely pay attention to daylight, here you have the best lighting conditions and also absolutely natural radiation. Light emitted by lamps does not have the natural warmth and of course the light source is directly in the room, which can also be seen in the shadows. Therefore you should always make sure in the first step that you take your photo in daylight. You should absolutely do without make-up, any styling that distracts from you and your skin, your hair, your facial features, your proportions is too much! That’s why you should completely do without make-up and styling. Clothes should not distract from you either, so you should wear black trousers and a black top as a woman or a black shirt as a man. With the shoes you should keep it the same, plain and unobtrusive. Let’s sum it up again:
- photos in daylight
- Good smartphone camera is enough
- No make-up
- No styling
- Black trousers, black top, plain shoes
These are the most important facts for your application photos. So you have the two perfect pictures, portrait and full body. Make sure that you don’t laugh at either photo, be absolutely unemotional and just look into the camera. Like I said, nothing should distract from your person, even gestures or facial expressions. If you have both your photos, you are welcome to take a photo with a smile and a photo of the page so that you can also see yourself in the profile. That would give you four photos and the perfect basis for your model agency to write!

Fashion show definition – What is a fashion show exactly?
fashion show according to Duden – catwalk, runway, fashion show, …
A fashion show is defined in the Duden as “an event at which the latest fashions are presented”. This is very broad. Closer illuminated is a fashion show the presentation of fashion collections in a certain staging. The collections of designers and labels are usually presented seasonally on the catwalk by models. The staging of the fashion show can be determined individually, there is no generally defined procedure. As a rule, a fashion show ends with a repeated, fast appearance of all models of the show and the “bowing” of the designer to the audience. The audience can be either the general public or an exclusive circle of invited guests and/or the press. As a rule, however, every fashion show focuses on a few key points in the organisation of agencies:
- Needed List – All details of planning / PR / Show in highlights
- Model Casting – The perfect models and measurements for the fashion collection
- Choreography – A detailed planning of the individual “pictures” (scenes)
- Public Relations – We inspire the right people from the label
- Rehearsal – Final dress rehearsal for all models of the fashion show
- Fashion show – The big moment for fashion designers
- Press work – After the show is before the show!

Backstage bi Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda and Alta Sartoria
Dolce & Gabbana is one of the largest high fashion companies. Dolce & Gabbana was founded by Domenico Dolce, born 1958 and Stefano Gabbana, born 1962 in Milan. Dolce & Gabbana’s first international recognition came in particular from Madonna, who accompanied the high fashion brand for many years. The two fashion designers designed more than 1500 costumes.
In the 90s the duo further expanded their position, among other things with perfume, which has been awarded as the best women’s fragrance of the year. Dolce & Gabbana has evolved ever since and has worked with many artists including Beyonce and Kylie Minogue. Dolce & Gabbana now includes not only the main line, but also the Alta Moda, as well as Dolce & Gabbana Junior.
Dolce & Gabbana offers its customers not only first-class fabrics and designs of the highest quality, but also lifestyle and luxury. With this mix, the brand has been convincing since its inception and continues to develop. The fashion shows are among the most coveted in the world, so once again big applause for our Linn and her first Dolce & Gabbana fashion show!

Here I have a video of the Buffalo London winter collection 2014/15 for you. Especially often the short boots are presented in different shapes and patterns. In this collection you will find a shoe for every occasion. Whether for the first date or for the prom – there is something for everything.
With so many different fragrances out there, it’s hard to keep track. Above all, it is difficult to find the right one for the given occasion. A scent remains in the memory of an encounter. Nobody can help you with this topic better than perfume specialist Jeremy Fragrance.
Jeremy Fragrance was born on 05.02.1989, 1.90m tall, blue eyes, trained and single. Originally he worked as a model for Cocaine Models. Then 4 years ago came the spontaneous idea – why not make a Youtube channel and give men tips about styling and perfume? That’s how it all started, nobody could have guessed that his channel would catapult up so fast. Today he travels around the world in a tailor-made designer suit, this year alone he has already been to New York 5 times. He also had a Ferrari in between and lives the life thousands of young people dream of. He regularly uploads new videos to his channel, where he tests different fragrances or asks other people for their unbiased opinions about fragrances, mostly women are asked about men’s perfumes – what they think about it and whether they would like to smell it on a man.
Jeremy’s morning routine
You don’t become a perfume professional overnight, you have to train your sense of smell. In his office in Hangelar (North Rhine-Westphalia), he believes that his long shelf contains the 100 best perfumes in the world. On another sideboard next to the impressive perfume collection are the 55 most important fragrance oils. Time for his morning routine – each bottle is gradually opened and smelled. As soon as a mistake is made in the assignment, ten push-ups are made and it starts all over again. Only in this way can he guarantee that he can always give his viewers the best tips – says Jeremy.
The Successes of Jeremy Fragrance
With 500,000 followers on Youtube, which are constantly increasing, he is considered the largest perfume influencer in the industry and that worldwide. So it’s hard to say exactly what his successes are, because his whole career seems like one big success. Still, there are a few moments that stand out. Only this year he won the Consumer Choice Award of the Fragrance Foundation and flew to New York, where he was awarded the prize for his Vlog “5 Reasons to wear Fragrances”. His video “Top 10 Most Complimented Best Mens Fragrances of all Time” has an incredible 2.8 million views and is the most watched video on his channel. Last month he was also on German television again on RTL Exklusiv, where he was widely reported as the biggest influencer of his genre. Now he is working with the “Michael Jackson of the perfume industry” on his own fragrance, which is due to be launched in 2019. His demands on his own fragrance are very high, it only comes out when he thinks it is the best fragrance in the world. That sounds like a pretty high goal, but for someone who only ever gives 100% like Jeremy achievable – we are excited!
What does Jeremy Fragrance do in his spare time?
Jeremy doesn’t really need time to “switch off”, as his job as a perfume influencer is far too much fun for him. It’s a full-time job and hobby. For fun he never goes out to eat or play billiards, in the evening he rather deals with comments under his videos, which he reads himself, which takes a lot of time. Almost every day Jeremy goes to the gym, he attaches great importance to living a healthy life. Complete renunciation of alcohol, smoking and only Matscha tea and healthy food. That requires a lot of discipline, but Mr Fragrance has it.
The video shoot of a successful Youtubers
We accompanied Jeremy during the shooting of his latest Youtube video and had a look behind the scenes. It was very interesting and surprising how such a successful Youtuber makes his videos – completely spontaneous. Camera set down, light briefly adjusted and “start” pressed. A totally relaxed one was finished after 2 minutes – you would think there is an incredible amount of preparation every time, but that’s not how it is. Just a lot of experience. After that follows the turning off of the content, also that is fast turned off and already he has a video. Of course it still has to be cut, but that’s no problem for a professional like Jeremy. Of course the question arises – don’t you run out of ideas when you talk so much about perfume? Jeremy’s answer to that is a clear no. When you’re behind a topic like him, you always have something to say.
What makes Jeremy Fragrance?
Why is he so successful? That’s a question you don’t have to ask yourself once you’ve seen a video of the influencer. Charming, funny and authentic – that’s Jeremy. If he is more than 01:59min late, he does 20 push-ups, that must be and requires a lot of discipline. However, this is invited without exception, even if it happens at a prize-giving ceremony in New York in front of running cameras. It’s also important to know that Jeremy never gets paid for his opinion by perfume manufacturers, that’s something he really values. He wants to give an unbiased, honest opinion about scents to his viewers and that’s exactly what he does. From women’s fragrances to men’s fragrances you will find everything you only want to know about the topic in his videos. If he were to accept such deals, he would no longer be able to remain true to his own concept, and that is what matters most to him. How it goes on with Jeremy and what he will achieve in the future you can see on his Youtube-Channel.

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.

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!
