From dystopian scenarios to runways on airplanes, it’s all here. If you want to learn more about the highlights of fashion week, read on here.

Fashion Week highlights and eye-catchers

Paris Fashion Week in March 2021 is the culmination of four major fashion weeks in New York, London, Milan and finally Paris. In four consecutive weeks, designers and artists have presented their collections for the womenswear season autumn/winter 2021/2022 – under the shadow of the Corona Pandemic. But that didn’t make the fashion industry flinch at all, at the virtual Fashion Week in Paris the best designers presented their creations: The focus is all on fashion. These are our highlights!

Chloé: Ponchos, Dresses & Bags

The first collection from Chloé’s new creative director, Gabriela Hearst, unveils her first runway for the fashion label exactly one hundred years after Chloé founder Gaby Aghion’s birth. According to Hearst, the autumn-winter 21 collection is informed and inspired by sustainability and a commitment to the greater good. Ponchos made from recycled cashmere, dresses made from superfine wool gauze, the recycled Edith bags or the Sheltersuit.

Acne Studios: Swedish fashion house

The Swedish fashion house presents its next fall/winter collection at Paris Fashion Week. According to Acne Studios, this collection was created in isolation and inspired by what happens when we come back to life and enter the normal world.

Vivienne Westwood: Fashion Designer & Activist

Vivienne Westwood is one of the last independent global fashion companies in the world. Westwood makes fashion about more than just making clothes and accessories, she raises awareness of environmental and human rights issues and is recognised as one of the world’s most influential fashion designers and activists. She presents her new collection in a creative film that is rather less like a normal fashion show with a simple runway walk.

Hermès: Performance Art Video

The fashion is presented behind a breathtaking backdrop of snow-white mountains:

Louis Vuitton: Fashion at the Louvre

The crowning finale of the Paris Fashion Week on March 10 is the fashion house Louis Vuitton. To the music of Daft Punk, the models walk in the new designs without an audience in the Louvre in Paris and present fashion that is anything but boring! Watch the video of the new Louis Vuitton collection here.

Virtual Influencer / Models / Avatar: Social Media Marketing Strategy – Trends

Virtual / Digital Influencers – Cocaine Models is the first model agency in Europe with virtual influencers. Exclusive and new! For many, virtual or digital influencers are something completely new. Especially for marketing strategies. International examples like Lil Miquela show that it makes little difference to people if the star on Instagram is “real”. What is “real” on Instagram? The virtual and the real world are getting more and more mixed up. Instead of classical marketing methods (TV, poster) more and more brands are changing to modern marketing methods like social marketing and even more special influencer marketing.

What is Influencer Marketing?

Influencer marketing is an approach that attempts to maximize the effectiveness of a company’s marketing activities. Therefore, agencies design concepts and strategies around people who have a large community (many followers) and whose opinions carry weight within the community. In this way the followers carry the messages further, into their micro-communities. Influencer Marketing is a subordinate part of Social Media Marketing.

Influencer marketing is a social marketing strategy that focuses on conveying brand messages. Instead of marketing directly to a large group of consumers, such as on TV or with poster advertising, influencer campaigns usually focus on a specific target group, or followers of the influencer. Influencer marketing usually comes in combination (cross-media) with social marketing (like ads) and content marketing. Tip! Read here (external) more about Influencer Marketing, Social Marketing (like Ads) and Content Marketing.

The focus of the activities is however on the purposeful information spreading of the Influencer to their or its personal target group.

Virality is not equal to influencer marketing

Although some in marketing consider virality (word-of-mouth marketing) and influencer marketing to be the same, there is a big difference between the two disciplines in social media marketing. Influencer marketing is about getting key people (relevant people with access to the desired target group) to make their influence felt in their own community.

Word-of-mouth marketing is the actual way in which this communication takes place between influencers, community and other people. Therefore almost every influencer marketing by nature includes word-of-mouth marketing activities. Especially the scattering effects (friends) make influencer campaigns so interesting and effective, if they are strategically prepared and planned correctly.

Digital influencers: hype vs. classic marketing

Traditional, digital marketing works less and less, just think of “pop-ups” and “ad blockers”. Similar to TV advertising, every form of marketing loses its appeal over the years. People are simply used to it. Accordingly, marketing strategies must change. Social media marketing is no longer new. Facebook, for example, was founded in 2004, it will soon be 20 years old and the first generation will take Facebook for granted. Nothing new, everything has been there before.

One of the newest and most effective forms of marketing is Influencer Marketing. Because, the connection between sender (influencer) and receiver (community) has never been so personal. Thousands of examples and best practices show how successful such campaigns can be when brand and influencer match.

So instead of reducing revenues from digital advertising and content marketing, smart companies are investing in this new form of marketing. Influencer marketing is not “just” reach, for your own brand name. Because of the close connection, a large, personal factor also plays a role. This makes influencer marketing activities so much more emotional than classical marketing strategies.

We are excited about all her steps that will come now! Here you can see her first official commercial, released today on our YouTube channel.

Digital Influencer?! The Hype

Virtual models now appear on the front pages of major magazines such as Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle and Vanityfair. They are the new faces of marketing campaigns and receive a lot of attention and prestige in the social media. The generated models are not only incredibly hyper-realistic, but also capable of seamlessly transforming and revealing completely new outfits, poses and faces. Because each model’s look is completely unique and is generated from scratch, the models can be tailored to meet the needs of each client.  This technology has the potential to be used by fashion brands as a time- and money-saving measure. The possibilities for what can be created are virtually endless.

The planning of an Influencer campaign by agencies varies greatly depending on the challenge of the individual project. But in general, it is all about identifying the perfect target group or the desired reach. Because, unlike many people think in daily online marketing, it is not about working with a specific influencer, but in 90% of the cases, the reach is first determined by the agency. In other words, which target group is to be addressed, what distinguishes it, demographic characteristics but also emotional ones.

Only when the basic goals have been defined and the persons (target group) we want to address with our campaign, the actual search for the influencer begins. The influencer is then evaluated analytically and in a structured manner using various social media tools, and prepared for presentation. The next step is to decide which person the company wants to work with.

Before that, the basic strategy of the Influencer Marketing Campaign is discussed.

Target group, goals and call-to-action

The definition of the topics is just as relevant as that of the target group. After the target group, we look at which topics are best suited to address the respective target group. This involves various characteristics that a campaign can have, not only the graphic and visual content but also the texts and the information they contain.

If we take a look at the information carrier alone, we have numerous possibilities here. Depending on the social network, the placement of links is possible so that a customer can directly use the option of a purchase. This is called Call-To-Action and is the direct forwarding of a customer, through an online marketing campaign, to a product or service. This works excellently with influencers on almost all platforms, from Instagram and TikTok to YouTube and Facebook.

With the currently very popular Instagram network, which appeals especially to a young target group (up to 40 years of age), it is again not possible to place links away from the stories. Here many agencies work mainly with coupon codes or hashtag campaigns. In the end, the goals of a campaign can be evaluated by monitoring and other social media software. The text is not only about links, but also emoticons are very popular to express complex feelings or even emotions with a sign.

Text, links, emojis… Social Marketing in every detail

Compared to the normal language we use, emoticons contain extremely many characters. Everyone knows the saying:

Picctures say more than 1,000 words

As mentioned above, campaign planning goes deep until the final strategy is found.

In the end it goes from the global schedule to details like “posting texts” and emojis in the posting. Emojis stand for a single piece of information, which in turn expresses complex issues. In short, you can talk a lot about the discount code or just post a happy smiley. The happy smiley will get more reactions than the simple text. The question is how long is the text? You see, Influencer Marketing is a very complex field and just the topics of planning and defining the target group is a chapter in itself, depending on the complexity of the individual project.

Increase reach: Marketing strategy “Community”

The more people ‘talk’ about you or your brand, the more successful you are! The principle is well-tried and also works in Social Media Management. To gain reach in social networks like Instagram and TikTok, it is especially important to work with the right people – the perfect influencers. For lifestyle, beauty, fashion and travel, models are the perfect multipliers! They set trends, meet famous people and wear the latest collections. Thus they offer one of the most authentic product placement for your own brand.

Opinion guide: Set trends instead of following them

Just like editors in magazines, influencers in social networks are the opinion leaders. They are interesting for people because they report live and directly from their private lives. By this absolutely authentic presentation their photos, stories and videos in social networks and with their Followern are hot desired. Products and brands they use are bought, used and in the best case further-recommended. As a result, the influence of social media as a marketing tool and advertising medium has become particularly strong.

Especially in the younger target groups, influencers on Instagram, TikTok & Co. are the stars of the new age. Everyone who wants to follow these trends follows them, not the classic TV commercials. Even young bloggers reach thousands, tens of thousands of people with their channels. This offers brands, fashion labels, businesses and companies unbeatable advantages of direct customer contact and sales promotion.

Efficient marketing and first-class results

Book strong multipliers for your next social media campaign – with CM!

Classics like YouTube, Facebook and youngsters like Instagram, TikTok

Modern market leaders – Instagram often still a secret tip in online marketing of companies and businesses for their products and services, which are to be advertised or promoted in social networks. For few weeks it is in addition, possible to switch to Instagram advertisement. What distinguishes Instagram, especially from the other major social networks, is the very precise targeting of target groups. Facebook has since taken first place with over 1.5 billion users, Instagram already has over 1 billion. Due to the previously very specialized user group, the image network is inherently low scatter loss in promotion. Crossmedia, network-spreading work is the success prescription for range and Coverversion in social networks such as Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, TikTok & Co.

Here are the big players for Germany:

  • Instagram – The app for photos & small videos
  • YouTube – The biggest video platform
  • Facebook – The network for everyone
  • TikTok – Kids and teenager

Monitoring and Reporting: Measuring success

If a company or enterprise wants to successfully advertise products in social media, two factors must be taken into account. This is the choice of media (mix, style, channel, etc.) for the clever placement but also the verification (monitoring) of the success after the advertising campaigns. Social Media Monitoring is therefore concerned with the particular challenge of checking results – successes and goals that a company has set itself in the run-up to the respective campaign. Various methods of analysis, most of which have already been made available by the individual social networks, can help here. Here you can read out different information and see if your campaign was successful on the web. The key figures in Social Media Management are among others:

  • Target group (demographic characteristics, interests, geography, behavior)
  • Technology and user data (stationary, mobile)
  • Acquisition and origin (search engines and social media)
  • User behavior and conversion

Social Media Ads & Retargeting: Push Effect

Especially for the technological components, social media managers can create outstanding complex campaign plans for companies and enterprises. For example, we can show different ads to users who receive our ad but use a new iPhone than to users with older devices.

This scattering effect is excellent for companies with products in high and low price segments. Different messages can be sent to different target groups. Another component of sales promotion through social networks is retargeting, the intelligent re-targeting of visitors. By retargeting we intercept users who have already been interested in your offer. This increases the users’ willingness to interact and the success in the online media.

Example: Instagram, Facebook and Youtube Ads

Step one: Create a campaign with digital models. Step two: Gain reach with paid ads, remarketing and retargeting. Here is an easy visualization, for example, if you are fashion store with local flag ship stores. Ads will be shown to visitors only, with selected range of age and range to the local stores.

Screen: Socialmediaagency.one

Find influencers: Complexity search to contract

Influencer marketing can be divided into 3 levels. Every single step requires time and patience. Especially because as a marketing manager, CEO, etc. you are not talking to an entrepreneur, often influencers are even minors. In this case, parents or legal guardians have to be involved as well.

Search and find authentic trademark advocates – step 1

The first step is the identification of suitable influencers, because authenticity plays an important role here. To start an effective campaign, the influencer should ideally already have interest in the brand or, even better, the direct product. For example, a model would be a good influencer for hotel chains, and a photographer would be a good influencer for camera manufacturers.

Evaluation and analysis of followers – step 2

The next step is the evaluation or analysis of the influencer in relation to the existing range. Caution, especially bought Likes make a quick evaluation difficult. Therefore, we also recommend working with a good influencer agency.

Contact and negotiations – step 3

The final step is to target the people who are likely to have the greatest impact on your brand or marketing message. Insofar as brand and influencer are “on the same wave”, the final step is to negotiate the terms. These include budgets, the number of postings on the individual networks, but also photo shoots, for example for additional media, keyword: content marketing.

Important: If an influencer thinks that your product or service is bad, he or she will most likely share the experience. So the “chemistry” between brand, products and influencer should be right. If not, distance yourself from a collaboration.

The competition for you is fierce, especially between the ages of 15-18. The better prepared you are, the faster you will convince!

3 Ways to Become a Model:

  • Scouting on the street or Instagram
  • Online application with Polaroids
  • Open Model Agency Casting

Living and working in London, Paris & Co.

If you have an agency and your portfolio has been expanded a bit and you have collected good video and image material, your agency will usually approach you to talk about a stay abroad. This opportunity is perfect to get to know the fashion world and to get important jobs through castings. This way you will learn to work independently and with the support of your modeling agency you will be able to enjoy your modeling world carefree. How stays abroad can look like, you can find here:

On Stay – Work abroad for two to three months

The supreme discipline for models: conquer the world! During an On Stay you will travel as a model for sixty to ninety days to a partner agency. Especially in the beginning, you will live in model shared flats and attend countless castings every day. If you decide to take this step, it is clear to you that you want to concentrate fully on life as a model. A stay abroad must be planned in advance. In Germany, most models start after school, before they begin their studies. For models it is the ideal time to travel. You are currently in the stage of “never seen before” and are in the absolute prime of your life. If you take the chance now, you can make it internationally as a model.

  • On Stay is a longer-term stay abroad
  • Models live in model WGs and attend pre-scheduled castings
  • Always in contact with mother – and partner agency

On Stay Expiry – How you live during your stay

First of all, as a model you have to actively decide to try your hand abroad. The active decision is important because you will have to deal with big agencies and clients at a young age. For example, if you say that you would like to go abroad, your agency will invest time in finding a good agency for you. Contracts will be signed and maybe airline tickets already booked. If you break off a few days before, this will not have a positive effect on your career, as trust will be lost. It is also important for you to have thought everything through in advance. You will be in a foreign country and will also be living with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you are still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always give you good advice on your way. Besides, you will always have a contact person in your agency from the beginning.

Many models ask me at the beginning, how does such an “On Stay” work? Will it cost me money? With a good model agency behind you, your stay abroad is just as well planned as a package holiday. Contracts are signed weeks or even months before the start of the trip. So you know very early when you will travel, where you will live, who your local contact person is and much more.

An On Stay never costs you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you as a model have no investment. The partner agency abroad takes over all your expenses in advance. This includes the flight tickets, the accommodation but also services on site such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs are deducted from your income. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. This is what we call “minus balance.” In any case, you gain experience, certainly footage and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Good model agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an On Stay, the agency believes in you and the success you could have abroad. Also the local partner agency believes in your success, otherwise they would not invest time and money to fly you in for two to three months.

Direct Booking – direct booking of the model for commercials and shootings

Direct bookings are the most pleasant form of cooperation for you as a model. Your mother agency recommends you to their partner agencies or one of the agencies would like to work with you. Through direct bookings model agencies try to fill their portfolio perfectly, so that they have new interesting models for their customers. With high priced jobs it is often no longer relevant where you come from. The travel expenses are taken over Europe-wide or even worldwide. That’s why agencies like to take good models for direct bookings. You are then just like in your mother agency in the model board of one or more agencies. Availability and option requests are then always forwarded directly to your parent agency. This does not change much for you. Also all updates of measurements, pictures and video material will be coordinated by your mother agency. With a little luck you will get your first bookings quickly. Since these are “direct” you won’t have to go on a casting beforehand, you will be booked solid and travel to the production location. But it is much more profitable for you to give directly on location, to “on stay”.

Application, test shooting, casting, jobs: models in London

The classic entry into the modeling career always runs through an application in a modeling agency. Model agencies not only help you get the right jobs and contacts, they also support you in your career and in your path. Most model start with mediated test shootings of their agencies, with renowned photographers. Here you can prove yourself as a model for the first time! It depends on your posing but also on your facial expressions.

You can show how changeable you are and how versatile you can be. But you can also prove that you are motivated and ambitious at the photo shoot set.

What do you need to be aware of as a New Face in London?

For you as a newface in the modeling industry, it is important to adhere to the basic principles of punctuality, loyalty, honesty, reliability and ambition. If you meet these criteria, you can go far as a model and later work internationally as a model in London and other cities. Especially as a new face, i.e. beginner, it is naturally more challenging to gain a foothold in cities like London. The world is full of beautiful and interesting models. So it is even more important to concentrate on the essentials and to do the tasks you get from your model agency properly.

If you want to know more about modeling and career, you will find everything you need to know in our big and detailed model guide.

Springboard to an international career

Once in London, the international competition of the most beautiful models from all six continents reaches a new level. Because each of the models that has made it this far pursues the same goal to run at the big fashion weeks and to present the latest collections of the most famous designers. Of course, only the models who have achieved this goal with the help of a modeling agency, such as Gigi Hadid, become publicly known. The many unknown faces of the modeling industry are quickly forgotten. What makes these lucky few stand out today, besides their jobs, is the promotion of themselves on social media. From Instagram to Facebook, a successful modeling career today involves a lot more initiative than just photo shoots or catwalk appearances. In the end, however, it’s always luck that decides which model people will still remember in 10 or 20 years.

Traveling as a model in London

Besides the work as a model, you should of course also explore the city in which you are. Often you live as a model in a model flat share or know some through castings, with which you can also tour around. London’s streets are full of fashion boutiques, vintage shops and interesting exhibitions. If you’re lucky, twice a year there’s a chance you can pop along to London Fashion Week and maybe even walk in it. We’ve picked out the best locations for you to take some time out and produce the best Instagram photos:

Permanent Vacation – Buying Apartment Los Angeles! Simple Explanation of Steps, Advantages, etc.

L.A., how to buy an apartment in Los Angeles. This is what we tell you about in this easy to read guide. Even if you know nothing about real estate, investing, or finances, we’ll tell you verything you need to know. Buying an apartment is a great investment, and if you’re renting, it’s a way to stop throwing money out the window every month. Let us take you through our guide on buying an apartment in L.A. Our friends at Lukinski have written this guest article

Buying an Apartment in L.A. – Vacation Vibe at Home

The place where your favourite celebrity probably lives… or at least has a three story luxury apartment. You want to live in the sun, meet celebrities on your way to grocery shopping, and not to forget, Hollywood, Bel-Air and Beverly Hills. On top of that, Los Angeles has everything else you need. Fashion, mountains, surf, the best bars and clubs in the world, and everything else.

Why Buy an Apartment?

Buying an apartment is almost certainly a good investment. Imagine you visit L.A., and instead of booking a room, you just need to remember to bring the key. To your own apartment! a place that you can decorate how you want, where you know your neighbors, and without worry, invite your friends over for a party.

Downtown – Where things Happen in L.A.

Want to be close to the action? Downtown L.A. is one of the most desired places to live in the city of angels. The price of this beautiful apartment? A strong $12 mil. This exclusive penthouse is in the Ritz-Carlton, and does not shy away from expense. This multi-million dollar piece of luxury will have you feeling like a superstar, with sleek design and top-level appliances. Look at those views!

  • Price: $12 mil.

Why Should I Buy in Los Angeles?

Buying an apartment in Los Angeles has more advantages than we can name here. Apart from the endless leisure opportunities from nature in the form of ocean, mountains, and forests, you have fashion shows, some of the world’s best shopping, museums, movie stars, etc. The advantages continue though, because right now is the right time to buy in L.A. Rent is comparably high, and the city is so popular that it is very unlikely that values reduce.

Hollywood, High-Tech, and Industry

You may think of Los Angeles only as a town of movie-making rich-people. It may be surprising then to hear that it is also a premier destination for high-tech startups. With Silicon Valley and San Francisco so close, these companies prefer Los Angeles. It’s also home to some massive industry, as well as a financial metropolis.

  • Population: 4,0 mil.

The Beauty of the City – Drone over L.A.

Los Angeles is also considered one of the most beautiful cities to live. You find endless beautiful suburban, inner-city, and palm-lined neighbourhoods. Sunsets at Venice Beach or a cocktail in your Bel-Air mansion? Why not. Take a look at how beautiful L.A. can be:

Why should I Buy an Apartment?

Because it’s a financially responsible decision, which you’re going to have fun with! Those are the two top reasons why you should buy an apartment. The financially responsible part will be explained later on, but when you hear ‘investing in real estate’ you never really think about the fact that real estate means you buy a place to live. Buying an apartment in L.A. therefore means not only being the owner of something which is gaining value over time (the way it does when you invest in other things like stocks), but also having your own luxury apartment in one of the world’s most desired cities. No more waiting in hotel lobbies, or booking a room in advance!

  • Make money off your investment
  • Have fun with your investment!

Where do I start with Buying an Apartment?

Maybe you’re not fully convinced yet. Even if you are, let me sweeten the deal. If you think about it, buying an apartment isn’t more expensive than renting it. That’s because when you buy an apartment, you will typically take out a loan (or mortgage, in real estate lingo, more on that further down), and pay off a bit of it each month. If you’re thinking, that sounds a lot like renting it, you’re right. The only big difference is that, when you’re paying off the loan, you’re beginning to own the apartment. Once you’ve paid off the whole loan, you will be the owner of the apartment, meaning you can sell it for just as much as you paid each month. In some areas of the city, the rent you would pay in 3 years would have been enough to buy the whole apartment.

  • With your past 3 years of rent, you could have bought your apartment!

What’s the Hook?

You may be thinking that it all sounds too easy. Well there is one hook to the whole paying off a loan with monthly payments. You have to pay what is called a downpayment. When you buy a piece of real estate, and take out a mortgage (remember, a mortgage is just a loan to pay for real estate), you pay a percentage of the total amount up front, and then pay off the rest in monthly payments. On the other hand, you can also see it as a bank paying 80% of your apartment, and you only pay a small piece of it. The key here is that, just like paying for a vacation, you save up once, and afterwards pay the same amount as your rent, and you’re making money.

When you buy real estate, you only pay 20%!

What you Have to know About Apartment Hunting!

These are the things you have to know about buying an apartment. Remember! Even if you’re not looking for an apartment specifically right now, these tips can be helpful, because sooner than later, you may find yourself looking into buying an aprtment, and many of these tips are things you can do right now that will make your life easier when the day comes.

Start Doing this Now!

Even if you’re years away from buying an apartment, you need to start taking care of your finances. That means, keep bank statements, and keeping track of loans. Most importantly though, when you buy an apartment, your past finances will be checked (called a credit report). If this check shows that you took out many loans, took a long time to pay these back, or worst case, failed to pay these back, you’re going to have a hard time finding a company to loan you money without charging exorbitant sums of interest. That means, avoid using your credit card, start saving as much as you can in case of unexpected expenses, and pay back anything you owe as fast as possible.

  • Care for your finances!

The Negotiation

When you get to the point of buying the apartment, you’re going to have to do some negotiating. Here, you can save you thousands or make the seller breaks off the deal. Not to worry though, we know exactly how you can save thousands, as opposed to lose the deal. When buying an apartment in Los Angeles, negotiation takes place like this. You make an offer. This is either renegotiated or accepted. Then, a building inspection is conducted, after which you can typically, based on the inevitable issues which the inspector finds, renegotiate again and reduce your price.

  • Always renegotiate!

Remember that on top of the ‘up-front’ cost of the apartment, you will pay additional costs, such as transfer taxes and title fees. These can be a few thousand dollars if you’re unlucky, but in your negotiation, you can ask the seller to pay these, while you only pay the up-front cost.

Negotiate Closing Costs!

Know What you’re Looking For!

You probably know what you like, but what is it called? A two-story walk-up? A studio? Do you want a front-gabled with a Stucco facade? The world of real estate has a language unto itself, but in L.A. there’s only a few types of important types of real estate you have to know, and if you’re looking to buy an apartment in L.A., unless it’s a classic one-bedroom, it’s likely one of these: Duplexes, Studios, Lofts, and micro-apartments.

Duplexes are mosts similar to a house, because in a sense they are a house. Unlike the typical commerical apartment buildings, these are houses which are split up into typically two identical apartments. The advantage: You typically have more privacy, and your own entrance. Studios and lofts are quite similar. A studio is an apartment which (apart from the bathroom) is made up of one single room which houses the sleeping, leisure, and cooking area. Lofts are studios with high ceilings, lots of windows, and typically larger than normal studios. Lastly, micro-apartments. These are lofts which have very little space. Typically without a leisure area, or combining a leisure and sleeping area with e.g. a pull-out couch. You’ll find these in downtown and denseley populated places.

  • Duplex: Most like a house
  • Studio: No separate rooms
  • Loft: Studio with industrial style
  • Micro-Apartment: Very small studio

Don’t forget the HOA!

Even if you buy an apartment, you’re going to be paying a recurring fee to the organization which takes care of the shared spaces. That means doing renovations, fixing the elevator when it’s broken, etc. But not all Homeowner Associations (HOA) are created equal! Some can be a major pain, because they do not perform the necessary renovations. In other cases, tenants can be problematic, and HOA’s fail to take care of this. There’s many things that can go wrong, so the best thing to do usually is to talk to a few neighbours, who can clue you in on the details.

  • Talk to your Neighbors!

Choose the Right Neighborhood!

Real estate, including apartmentss, is all about location location location. You want to buy an apartment in an area where you want to live of course, but there’s other things to think about. You likely want to have good connection to public transport, even if you own a car. Related to that, you also want to have a freeway nearby, to have amenities such as shopping and grocery opportunities nearby. Depending on your leisure activities, perhaps you’ll also want to keep an eye out for cafes, clubs, restaurants, and bars in the area.

  • Check out the area!

Lastly, and very importantly, you want a neighborhood on the up, and not on the descent. Some neighborhoods are becoming massively popular (which those are, further down), meaning that prices are increasing massively. One day, when you sell your apartment, you’re going to want to get as much money for it as possible, so to choose a neighboorhood which is gaining poppularity is an inveitably profitable decision.

  • Buy in up-and-coming areas!

Where to Live in Los Angeles

Compton, Hollywood, Westwood, Bel-Air… The list goes on and on. Los Angeles is probably home to the most iconic neighborhoods worldwide. We give you a run-down of the hottest spots in the city, where buying an apartment is sure to make you a happy homeowner.

Silver Lake – Trendiest Spot

Silver Lake is LA’s Brooklyn. The place with most young, hip, creative and stylish people. This is where you’ll find the trendiest bars, the newest and hottest cafes, and more. There’s also the famous griffith park, and east river, and more, all with great access to freeways and spitting distance to downtown L.A.

A drive through these neighborhoods will give you a good idea of what they’re like!

Glendale

If you want to live away from the stress, but not somewhere in the country, Glendale may be your spot. It not only one of the safest areas in LA., but also close to the LA Zoo, the Norton Simon Museum, Travel Town, hiking trails in the San Gabriel Mountains, etc. Zillow classifies the Glendale housing market as “very hot”. Makes sense considering it’s also the lcoation of one of L.A.’s busiest and hottest shopping streets in the form of Brand Boulevard and The Americana at Brand

Below, the Americana at Brand, one of L.A.’s famous shopping locations

Culver City – Creatives and Trendy Bars

Another L.A. neighborhood with trendy cafes and bars en masse. Culver city has arguably joined the ranks of el segundo, and beverly hills in pop culture legacy, making its name as the hippest and coolest area for young creatives and artists. Fast forward a few years, and like in so many places, gentrification has taken its course, not so that it’s unenjoyable though. This area offers up some legendary locales, and a totally unique atmosphere!

Venice

Venice is a legendry area. No doubt it’s also become a major hotspot for tourists, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have its charm. It’s home to some luxurious apartments, and just like many other of L.A.’s top destinations, it’s a great place if you want to try out some trendy bars and cafes. Not to forget, the massive stretch of beach where surfing, volleyball, sunbathing, etc. can become part of your everyday routine!

Checklist: Buying an Apartment in Los Angeles

  1. Take Care of your Finances!

Becoming a Model in New York: Application, Casting & Jobs

If you want to make it to the top, you should have a goal as a model. You should work abroad sooner or later! Although you already have many options in Germany and already live in a big market for advertising and fashion, there are even bigger jobs and campaigns abroad. You already know the “Big Four” from Fashion Weeks all over the world. For models abroad, however, there are many more interesting markets. Besides Milan and Paris, New York is the hotspot for young models!

New York Trip: Modeling Abroad

You have built your book so far? Your model agency gives you the unique opportunity to fly abroad and work from there? Then you should not miss the experience. To work successfully as a model abroad is the supreme discipline! Besides the beautiful sights and people in New York, you have the chance to go to castings and get important jobs there. With Cocaine Models as your management, you have the opportunity to have an unforgettable time in New York.

If you are not a model yet, live in America and want to apply, here are the first important tips:

Becoming a model: Requirements in New York

For models there are many requirements, for example, in height, weight, as well as in the resulting proportions. Los Angeles also has strict measurements when it comes to international fashion clients, commercials and fashion shows. Of course there are always exceptions, the spirit of the times changes the fashion world, the media but also advertising. What we as a model agency, also our model scouts pay special attention to, for example, are small, extra highlights, such as freckles or tooth gaps. So there is no perfect model, not even in LA. But as a model you come very close to the ideal of beauty. As described, you can not summarize it all together have e.g. give a few guidelines.

Requirements to become a model:

  • For female models, the ideal case is
  • Body size women 174 to 180 cm
  • Beautiful and / or striking face
  • Slim proportions

For men models is the ideal case:

  • Body size from 184 to circa 192 cm
  • Slim and athletic proportions
  • Muscle build must not be too extreme
  • Cutie or striking

Online application with Polaroids

Free of charge and fast, the application is also online. You can upload your footage on our website and provide the most important contact information. This way our scout gets a first impression of you.
If you are shortlisted, you will be notified and invited to the office or to the call.

  • Become a model in New York

Entering your contact information is very simple, for this there is a ready-made application form. In it you only have to enter a few data, for example, your name, your place of residence, your contact details such as phone and email address and your height. You also have to send two photos. Ideally a portrait and a full body photo.

Open model agency casting

Likewise, we offer open casting a few times a year. Since we have also set our foothold in America and represent models there, know designers, photographers and clients, we would be happy if you are also at our next open casting.

How does such an open model casting actually work? Basically, the agency wants to get to know as many people as possible in a short time. Getting to know someone live is still something different than judging someone through photos or videos. Such open model castings are relatively costly for model agencies to organize. You need a location, the right and important people, as well as bookers and scouts must have time. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to organize such live castings, because as described, you call the people thereby know much better!

Queue – at open castings a bigger queue often forms when 50 or 100 models are there at the same time. It’s best to relax, find a comfortable spot and distract yourself with your smartphone. Waiting times and patience are definitely part of a model’s job.

Jobs: fashion show, social, e-commerce, campaign & TV

If you’re wondering what kind of jobs await you in New York: starting with fittings and showrooms, for fashion retailers and buyers, to fashion shows, with something more perfect. But typical model jobs in our agency are also social media shoots, e.g. for Instagram, as well as e-commerce shoots for new collections and campaigns. Once you’ve mastered all these levels, it’s on to campaigns, photo shoots and commercials. With broadcast, on national TV, streaming providers on an international level, in the cinema, as well as on your smartphone, in apps or in the browser.

Here again a small overview, to the different model jobs:

  • showroom
  • Fashion show
  • Social Media
  • E-commerce
  • Campaigns
  • Commercials for TV and web

Our models who have already worked abroad and had the experience of exploring the fashion world as a young model:

Working in New York: On Stay Procedure

When you are under contract with us at the agency, you will always get emails from our bookers. They will help you to coordinate and not to miss any casting. But first of all, as a model, you must actively decide to try your hand abroad. The active decision is important because you will be dealing with big agencies and clients at a young age. For example, if you say that you would like to go abroad, your agency will invest time in finding a good agency for you. Contracts are signed and maybe airline tickets are booked. If you break off a few days beforehand, this will not have a positive effect on your career, as trust will be lost. It is also important for you to have thought everything through in advance. You will be in a foreign country and also living with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you are still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always give you good advice on your way. In addition, you always have a contact person in your agency from the beginning.

Many models ask me at the beginning, how does such an “On Stay” work? Does it cost me money? With a good model agency behind you, your stay abroad is just as well planned as a package vacation. Contracts are signed weeks or even months before the start of the trip. So you know very early when you will travel, where you will live, who your local contact person is and much more.

An On Stay never costs you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you as a model have no investment. The partner agency abroad takes over all your expenses in advance. This includes the flight tickets, the accommodation but also services on site such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs will be deducted from your income. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. This is what we call “minus balance.” In any case, you gain experience, certainly footage and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Good model agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an on stay, the agency believes in you and the success you could have abroad. Also the local partner agency believes in your success, otherwise they would not invest time and money to fly you in for two to three months.

Most models are automatically drawn to the “Big Four”, of course. However, many also go for a few months to cities that are not associated with fashion at first, but which are a microcosm all of their own. These include cities like Istanbul, Mumbai and Hong Kong. Here, products are produced for the whole world. Not only fashion, but also electronics and toys. Many producers are interested in doing photo shoots and video shoots directly on location. Here the productions are much cheaper. Thus, the teams are larger, the shootings sets more elaborate.

Elephant, helicopter or dreamlike South Seas beaches? No problem! These countries are a real Eldorado for building up your own book, because you directly get extremely many different jobs. In addition, there are large brands that produce photos for dealers and buyers directly here. So you can also quickly get international brands. What is the catch? Of course there is a catch, the payment. While you can earn four-figure sums as a model in Germany even as a New Face, here it’s only a few hundred euros. While German agencies also pay strict attention to usage rights, subsequent remuneration is often not so certain. The A&O here is a large agency that has been working with the local agency for a long time and has had good experiences.

Guaranteed income and great jobs

Models who have made it far, had many clients and an absolutely fantastic book will gradually get their first “Garantuee Contracts”. Then you even get a guaranteed minimum income from the agencies. They do that when you are so good as a model that in theory you don’t need to travel abroad anymore. Or, you already travel so much that other agencies have to convince you to come to them. If you’ve made it here, congratulations.

At some point, you’ll just be traveling. No longer for sixty to ninety days, but for days and weeks, from country to country, from production to production. Because at some point your network will have grown so much that your management will completely take over the management of your time. You get requests all the time and you have to plan your life and all your trips exactly.

How great would it be if you could spend your next year there and experience the New York fashion world?

Let us introduce you to your dream idea: Buying an apartment in New York City. Fashion models walking in the streets, meeting your favourite celebrity at the starbucks, long nights out with friends in Brooklyn and Manhattan, and weekend trips to the world’s most famous museums.

This article is written by real estate experts giving you an easy-to-understand guide to the first steps toward buying an apartment. Our friends at Lukinski have written this guest article Real Estate New York by Lukinski.

Buying an Apartment in NY – How Easy it Can Be

You’ve probably heard that the best investment you can make is to buy a piece of real estate. That’s no doubt true! It’s the best way to spend your money, and profit from it in the future. Of course it’s not the simplest process, but it’s worth the work. We give you an easy guide on what buying an apartment could mean for you.

Why Buy an Apartment? Real Estate Luxury Life

Everyone knows that real estate moguls (think multi-millionaires) are plenty. It seems every second person that’s made a million has done it with real estate. That’s because putting your money into real estate means multiplying it. New York has its legendary penthouses and high-end lofts, or spectacular views of the Hudson. Take a look at this massive $23 mil. penthouse in TriBeCa, right in the center of the city.

Fifth Avenue Living

Want to be closer to the action? Prada, Chanel, and Bottega Veneta just around the corner? Living on fifth avenue gives you more. Not only are you in the world’s best shopping street, but also close to all the hippest parts of Manhattan Island. It’s everything you need to live the high life in the big apple.

Why Should I Buy in NYC?

Buying an apartment in New York has too many advantages to count. Penthouses, lofts, luxury apartments and views of Manhattan. What more do you want? You’re in the middle of all the action. Fashion shows, celebrities, high-tech startups, art, designers, and the list goes on. Whether you’re a young student taking the subway in Brooklyn, a wall street financier living in a manhattan loft, or a fashion model in SoHo, New York is the city of dreams for pretty much everyone.

More than Just Fashion and Tourism

New York is not only one of the world’s largest economic centers, it is also cutting-edge. Countless startups, new tech companies, and artists call this city home. Only recently, more and more companies like Disney have opened headquarters in the skyscrapers making up the legendary skyline. The city is home to 8,4 mil. people, which is why there’s countless neighbourhoods, all with their own unique personality. Williamsburg, Brooklyn feels like a completely different city than the Upper East Side and Bushwick is felt completely different than TriBeCa.

  • Population: 8,4 mil.

The Beauty of the City – New York Drone

The New York skyline is incomparable, and its central park is in a league of its own. To really know how beautiful this city is, you have to have been there. But, the next closest thing is an aerial view of the beauty:

What’s so Good about Buying an Apartment?

Buying an apartment means a few good things. For one, it is an investment that you can live in! The second you buy, you are profiting. Every morning you wake up benefitting from your investment. Let’s say you already have an apartment in L.A., and you buy another in New York. Whenever you visit, you can go home, not to the W. Say goodbye to scratchy hotel room bedsheets and checking out at 11:00, you can leave your own apartment whenever you want. You’re not in New York for a month? No problem, rent it out and make a few thousand dollars from a tenant.

  • Enjoy your investment every day

But it’s Expensive Right?

That’s probably what you’re thinking. Why should I buy an apartment for $400.000 when I can rent it for $6.000 a month? Well think about it: if you spend $6.000 of rent a month for 6 years you’ve already spent over $430.000. So if you had bought an apartment 3 years ago, you could have already bought half an apartment. So in the end it’s not that expensive at all when you look at how much you’re paying anyways.

  • Your past 3 years rent could buy half an apartment

I don’t have Enough to Buy an Apartment!

That’s probably your next thought, who has $430.000 lying around? Well probably not very many people, but people still buy apartments every day. How do they do it? How could you do it? The important word here is ‘mortgage’. With a mortgage you get the bank to pay 80% of your apartment, and you pay them back every month until you’ve paid them back fully. So you only pay 20% when you buy it (that’s called the ‘downpayment’). The money you pay back to the bank is the money you would have spent in any case on your rent, so all you have to do is save up for your downpayment, and you’re good to go!

You only pay 20% of your apartment price!

Top Secret Tips for Your Apartment Hunt

So what do you need to know for your apartment search in New York? We give you our top secret tips on what you can do to make your life easier, and find an apartment of your dreams. Even if you’re not looking right now, keeping these things in mind means you’ll be more successful when you do stumble on the opportunity.

Tip #1: Take Care of your Finances!

This is something to do before you start doing anything else. Even if you are not thinking about buying an apartment right now, you should be keeping careful watch over your money. Yes it can be annoying, especially when you don’t want to be confronted with the reality of how often you ordered take-out in the last month, but it’s a pain worth taking. When you do buy an apartment your bank will be happier to lend you money, given that you have shown in the past that you are in control of your finances. Having months where you go 1.000$ over your credit card limit is not a good look, and may mean high interest rates.

  • Avoid bad money management

Tip #2. Don’t Rush it!

Just like Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big, you probably won’t find your dream apartment too quickly. Maybe you’ll look for weeks and not find anything, give up, and settle for less. That’s why tip #2 is not to rush it. When you’re in it for the long run, you’ll find what you want sooner or later. And if you follow the other tips I give here, you will have pretty good chances of getting that apartment.

Tip #3: Know how to Negotiate

Negotiation is no simple task. Doing it right can save you thousands. Doing it wrong can mean the seller breaks off the deal. Not to worry though, we know exactly how you can save thousands, as opposed to lose the deal. When buying an apartment in New York, the procedure is typically as follows: You make an offer. This is either renegotiated or accepted. Then, a building inspection is conducted, after which you can typically, based on the inevitable issues which the inspector finds, renegotiate again and reduce your price.

  • Always renegotiate!

What to watch out for: When you buy an apartment you pay one full price (e.g. $430.000 for your apartment), but there are also closing costs, like taxes on the sale, broker fees, etc. You should choose to negotiate on one of these. For example, you offer to pay all the closing costs, and the seller reduces their price by a few thousand, or they can keep their proposed sales price, but in turn have to pay closing costs.

Tip #4: Know What Type of Apartment you Want!

Maybe you’ve heard someone say they’re moving into a coop, or that they’ve found a sponsor unit. These are different types of apartments, and have different advantages. Your everyday normal apartment will have you buying only the property, i.e. the four walls, and also have you paying a monthly fee for posssible repairs which have to be done in the building. In a coop, also called a housing cooperative, you do not actually buy the four walls, you buy part of a company which owns the building, and this part entitles you to live in your apartment. This has different advantages, and can often be cheaper. The dream apartment is a sponsor unit or a rent-controlled apartment. In short, these are normal apartments, but for a variety of reasons, they are much less expensive than others. If you find one of these, don’t hesitate, they’re rare and in high demand.

  • Look for sponsor units and rent-controlled apartments!

Where to Live in New York

You’ve heard of Manhattan, SoHo, TriBeca, and Williamsburg. What about Flatbush or Bedford-Stuyvesant? Or Chelsea and East Village? If you’re looking to impress a New Yorker, these are the neighbourhoods you’ll have to know, from SoHo and NoHo to Battery Park City and Park Slope:

SoHo – Elegance par Excellence

SoHo is where Carrie bradshaw wanted to live. The epitome of chic and high-class, this district is home to trendy shopping, expensive restaurants and stylish young professionals. Sat in the middle of lowewr Manhattan, it’s close to everything and should fulfill all your wishes.

Williamsburg – Birthplace of Hipsters

Williamsburg is quite literally the home of the hipsters. The formerly anti-mainstream counterculture movement was born in this trendy part of Brooklyn. Like many Brooklyn districts, it has countless small boutiques, concerts, galleries, and cafes. Although nowadays it is slightly less counterculture and much more gentrified, the safety and beauty, along with the countless amenities make this one of the number one dream destinations for people moving to New York City.

TriBeCa – Private Luxury

The most expensive district in New York City is also the home to countless celebrities. They appreciate the quiet ambience of the district, along with its close proximity to everything important in Manhattan, the views of the Huddson River, and endless million-dollar residences.

Bedford-Stuyvesant – Future Williamsburg

If Williamsburg is too gentrified, Bedford-Stuyvesant is where you should move. At the moment, it is not yet at the point where luxury boutiues are overshadowing mom and pops delis, with just the right amount of chic and class combined with the gritty and honest New York City. Also note, at the moment, prices for apartments here are still manageable compared to the rest of the city.

Los Angeles: CM goes LA – Become a model, casting dates & agency

Model Agency Los Angeles – Hello LA! Your favorite model agency is now in LA. Become a model, application, castings, now also in California, one of the most beautiful states in the USA. You always wanted to become a model at CM? You already applied for LA or you never did? Now is your chance! Apply online now or come to one of the next live castings. Here is some first info about LA.

Becoming a Model and Castings: News

Indeed, it’s time, the big dream comes true and we open our first office in Los Angeles! January 12 is the official start and probably the kick-off for a lot of work. With Cocaine Models, we have built a strong and popular agency with clients over the past few years. With international jobs, in Europe and America. If you’ve been out of Los Angeles before but haven’t had an agency invitation yet, second chance? And even if you haven’t had any contact with our agency before, this is your chance to apply to our modeling agency.

Here are some first tips for your model application in Los Angeles and the process.

Becoming a Model: Requirements in Los Angeles

For models there are many requirements, for example, in the height, the weight, as well as in the resulting proportions. Even in Los Angeles there are strict measurements when it comes to international fashion clients, commercials and fashion shows. Of course there are always exceptions, the zeitgeist changes the fashion world, the media but also the advertising. What we as a model agency, also our model scouts pay special attention to, are for example small, extra highlights, such as freckles or tooth gaps. So there is no perfect model, not even in LA. But as a model you come very close to the ideal of beauty. As described, you can not summarize it in general have e.g. give a few guidelines.

For female models, the ideal case

  • Body height women 174 to 180 cm
  • Beautiful and / or striking face
  • Slim proportions

For men models is the ideal case:

  • Body height from 184 to approx. 192 cm
  • Slim and athletic proportions
  • Muscle building must not be too extreme
  • Cutie or striking

As described, if you really want to become a model, you should try it and just send an application. Then you will see if the model scout gets back to you or if you don’t get any feedback. If you want to apply, you’ll find some important information right here! Before that, let’s take a quick look at the typical path to a modeling contract. How does one actually become tomorrow? How do you get discovered as a model?

Become a model in LA: 3 ways to a model contract

There are 3 ways to become a model.

  1. Scouting on the street or Instagram
  2. Online application with Polaroids
  3. Open Model Agency Casting

Let’s look at the 3 ways, their advantages and disadvantages, in detail.

Scouting on the street or instagram

The most direct and immediate way to a new contract in Los Angeles is to be discovered by one of the model agency scouts.

The very first step is a visit to our agency, here you get to know our model booker and we get to know you. Here it is no longer “only” primarily about height, weight, proportions, but about motivation and sympathy. This is the fastest way, therefore it is also quickly described.

You got messaged on Instagram?

Important. Our model agency writes only and exclusively via the official Instagram channel to @cocaine.models

If you’ve been messaged by another Instagram account, have a fake. Protect the others and report these channels!

Online application with Polaroids

The best way for you is the online application. Here you can check quickly, free of charge and without obligation, whether your type is currently being sought in our agency portfolio.

The online application is completed in a few seconds, all you need is a few contact details and Polaroids. What that is, you can read here!

In addition, you only need to send a few initial data and information. The entry is very simple, there is a ready-made application form. You only need to enter a few details, e.g. your name, your place of residence, your contact details such as phone and email address and your height. In addition, you send two photos. Ideally a portrait and a full body photo. You can find a good description of how to take your photos in the link above.

Open Model Agency Casting

Way number 3, to become a model, are open agency castings, which are offered from time to time. E.g. in the context of Fashion Week. Here in Los Angeles you will get more frequent model casting appointments in the near future.

How does such an open model casting actually work? Basically, the agency wants to get to know as many as possible in a short time. Getting to know someone live is still something different than judging someone through photos or videos. Such open model castings are relatively costly for model agencies in the organization. You need a location, the right and important people, as well as bookers and scouts must have time. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to organize such live castings, because as described, you get to know the people much better!

Queue – at open castings there is often a bigger queue if 50 or 100 models are there at the same time. It’s best to relax, find a comfortable spot and distract yourself with your smartphone. Waiting times and patience are definitely part of a model’s job.

Model Castings: Dates in LA

Don’t want to miss a casting call in Los Angeles? Follow and very much to instagram!

Tip + Advantage CM: We are looking for models not only for the American market, but also for the European market. An unbeatable advantage, one management for two large territories.

Here you can see for example one of our last big castings in Berlin, Germany:

Who are we? CM: The Model Agency

Our agency was founded in 2015 and since then we have fought our way to the top! With our team! Model bookers, scouts, models, influencers, as well as accounting and international setup.

  • So CM is not “just” a model agency, but a management.

Another advantage that many models and influencers appreciate about our concept. We not only take care of the placement, but also the set-up and international placement. So that you can work not only in your local market, not only regionally and nationally, but internationally.

Jobs: fashion show, social, e-commerce, campaign & TV

We are looking for models for various jobs for our clients in Los Angeles. Starting with fittings and showrooms, for fashion retailers and buyers, to fashion shows, with something more perfect. Typical model jobs at our agency also include social media shoots, such as for Instagram, as well as e-commerce shoots for new collections and campaigns. Once you’ve mastered all these levels, it’s on to campaigns, photo shoots and commercials. With broadcasting, on national TV, streaming providers on an international level, in the cinema, as well as on your smartphone, in apps or in the browser.

Here again a small overview, to the different model jobs:

  • Showroom
  • Fashion show
  • Social media
  • E-commerce
  • Campaign
  • Commercials

Welcome to the City of Angels

From Central City to Bel Air to Hollywood, Long Beach, Venice and a little further to Malibu, no part of LA and yet beautiful and relatively close. But LA is most famous for Disneyland, Universal Studios Hollywood and the world famous Hollywood sign.

Model Agency Los Angeles

What does it take to be a model? And… what recommendations do we have for your next spontaneous trip to LA? From restaurants to hotels to the best parks to relax in. Read more about our model agency and Los Angeles here.

If you want to make it to the top, you should have a goal as a model. You should work abroad sooner or later! Although you already have many options in Germany and already live in a big market for advertising and fashion, there are even bigger jobs and campaigns abroad. You already know the “Big Four” from Fashion Weeks all over the world. But there are many more interesting markets for models abroad. In Europe, for example, there are Istanbul, Athens and Barcelona. In Asia there are several well-known and up-and-coming metropolises. As a model you can work here in Seoul, in Tokyo, Hong Kong or right next to Hong Kong, Gzenshen. As a model, the world is open to you.

International Modeling: Chand from Stockholm visits Germany / Shooting Time

In our new small model documentary we accompanied Chand three days in Germany. Together with Oliver Rudolph Chand shoots for trueprodigy. The brand sells in over 35 countries! So that the looks in the new lookbook, the shop and the store elements are just right, the label flew Chand in from Stockholm. We accompanied Chand backstage, in the hotel, in the gym but also at breakfast. A little insight for New Faces!

Casting! Casting! Casting! Production cities in Southern Europe and Asia

Most models are automatically drawn to the “Big Four”. However, many also go to cities for a few months to build up the book, cities that you don’t initially associate with fashion, but which are a microcosm all of their own. These include cities like Istanbul, Mumbai and Hong Kong. Here, products are produced for the whole world. Not only fashion, but also electronics and toys. Many producers are keen to do photo shoots and video shoots directly on location. Here the productions are much cheaper. Thus, the teams are larger, the shootings sets more elaborate.

Elephant, helicopter or dreamlike South Seas beaches? No problem! These countries are a real Eldorado for building up your own book, as you can get an extremely wide range of jobs directly. In addition, there are big brands that produce photos for dealers and buyers right here. This way you can also quickly get international brands. What is the catch? Of course there is a catch, the payment. While you earn four-digit sums as a model in Germany even as a New Face, here it’s only a few hundred euros. While German agencies are strict about rights of use, a subsequent payment is often not so certain. The A&O here is a large agency that has been working with the local agency for a long time and has had good experiences.

Placement – Model agencies and jobs worldwide

At some point comes the moment in which your model agent or your model agency will talk to you about the topic of foreign countries and placement. In principle, there are two different forms of placement abroad.

Direct Booking – direct booking of the model for commercials and shootings

Direct bookings are the most pleasant form of cooperation for you as a model. Your mother agency recommends you to their partner agencies or one of the agencies would like to work with you. Through direct bookings model agencies try to fill their portfolio perfectly, so that they have new interesting models for their customers. With high priced jobs it is often no longer relevant where you come from. The travel expenses are taken over Europe-wide or even worldwide. That’s why agencies like to take good models for direct bookings. You are then just like in your mother agency in the model board of one or more agencies. Availability and option requests are then always forwarded directly to your parent agency. This does not change much for you. Also all updates of measurements, pictures and video material will be coordinated by your mother agency. With a little luck you will get your first bookings quickly. Since these are “direct” you won’t have to go on a casting beforehand, you will be booked solid and travel to the production location. But it is much more profitable for you to give directly on location, to “on stay”.

On Stay – Work abroad for two to three months

The supreme discipline for models: conquer the world! During an On Stay you will travel as a model for sixty to ninety days to a partner agency. Especially in the beginning, you will live in model shared flats and attend countless castings every day. If you decide to take this step, it is clear to you that you want to concentrate fully on life as a model. A stay abroad must be planned in advance. In Germany, most models start after school, before they begin their studies. For models it is the ideal time to travel. You are currently in the stage of “never seen before” and are in the absolute prime of your life. If you take the chance now, you can make it internationally as a model.

On Stay Expiry – How you live during your stay

First of all, as a model you have to actively decide to try your hand abroad. The active decision is important because you will have to deal with big agencies and clients at a young age. For example, if you say that you would like to go abroad, your agency will invest time in finding a good agency for you. Contracts will be signed and maybe airline tickets already booked. If you break off a few days before, this will not have a positive effect on your career, as trust will be lost. It is also important for you to have thought everything through in advance. You will be in a foreign country and will also be living with strangers for sixty to ninety days. If you are still young, talk to your parents about your plans right at the beginning. They have a lot of life experience and can always give you good advice on your way. Besides, you will always have a contact person in your agency from the beginning.

Many models ask me at the beginning, how does such an “On Stay” work? Will it cost me money? With a good model agency behind you, your stay abroad is just as well planned as a package holiday. Contracts are signed weeks or even months before the trip. So you know very early when you will travel, where you will live, who your local contact person is and much more.

An On Stay never costs you money as a model. Good agencies always work on the principle that you as a model have no investment. The partner agency abroad takes over all your expenses in advance. This includes the flight tickets, the accommodation but also services on site such as gyms, drivers or “pocket money”. In the end, the costs are deducted from your income. If you end up with a negative amount, the agency will cover the costs. This is what we call “minus balance.” In any case, you gain experience, certainly footage and it doesn’t cost you a cent. Good model agencies invest in their models. If you are proposed for an On Stay, the agency believes in you and the success you could have abroad. Also the local partner agency believes in your success, otherwise they would not invest time and money to fly you in for two to three months.

Yulffi: Bangkok, Munich, Cologne, Madrid to Tokyo

Yulffi is on the road a lot. Here he was after his Reebok campaign (Munich) for a stopover in Cologne to shoot with our Janine, Lea and New Face Johnson. Soon it’s back to Bangkok and with a little luck on to Tokyo.

Garantuee Contract – Guaranteed income and great jobs

Models who have made it far, had many clients and an absolutely fantastic book will gradually get their first “Garantuee Contracts”. Then you even get a guaranteed minimum income from the agencies. They do this when you are so good as a model that, in theory, you don’t need to travel abroad anymore. Or, you already travel so much that other agencies have to convince you to come to them. If you made it here, congratulations.

At some point you will just travel. No longer for sixty to ninety days, but for days and weeks, from country to country, from production to production. Because at some point your network will have grown so much that your management will completely take over the management of your time. You constantly get requests and have to plan your life and all your travels exactly.

If you haven’t had the question in your head for a long time, maybe now you will.

How much does a successful model earn anyway?

As I said, at the beginning of your career you will usually do small jobs for relatively, small fees. Models who make it definitely have the chance to earn an incredible amount of money. Of course I can’t tell you the exact fees, but I want to give you an insight. In Germany you will get for most shootings and shoots fees that are in the four-digit range. Some of them even fall into the three-digit range, for example for small labels that you like yourself. Commercials, on the other hand, quickly bring in high four-figure, sometimes five-figure amounts. It depends on how many production days there are, in how many countries the commercial is broadcast and in which media. For a large commercial, for example for a luxury manufacturer, it can be twenty to fifty thousand euros or US dollars. Whereby the limits are open, some make it already in very young years to etrem much success like supermodel Cara Delevingne or Beckham offspring Brooklyn Beckham. For his first Burberry campaign he got 57,000 US dollars, at the age of 19. It’s worth travelling for, bit by bit: Berlin, Milan, Paris, New York.
