Model agency: Book a model in Paris
Are you looking for a model in Paris? Our model agency helps you with the search, mediation and organization.
Even if the Italians see it differently, Paris is the world capital of fashion – as well for every model and every model agency. This was already the case in the days of the French kings and even a revolution could not change that. France’s capital is also the capital of fashion, and here a touch of perfume and love clings to every piece of tulle. Parisians like to dress up when they eat with friends, go to the cinema or the theatre. However, they don’t let themselves prescribe how to dress.

Become a model: Prerequisites
Models in Paris are under particular competitive pressure. There are daily castings for commercials, photo shoots and fashion magazines. If you have the right contacts, you get the best addresses. But that’s a long way off.
There are several success factors for conquering the Paris catwalks that every prospective model should bring with them. One of the basic requirements is height. A minimum height of 1.75 m has been counted as one of the tickets for a professional model career for years (as a rule, there are always exceptions, but more rarely). Because even if the exceptions like Kate Moss always make headlines, these models are still the exception of the rule for a professional model agency. As a second criterion, age is also a decisive factor. Most newcomers start modeling at the age of 16 to 20. Some models are also discovered earlier. Whereby it concerns then mostly occasional Nebenjobs, which always presupposes the agreement of the parents up to the majority age. Other features also play an important role in modeling. In the first place a pure skin with invisible pores as well as groomed hair, which make a multiplicity of different Looks possible, count to it.
If you have exactly these basic requirements and have been thinking about working as a model for a long time, you can take the first step into a modeling career by applying to a Paris model agency. For this you need a formal letter as well as pictures created by a professional photographer. Anyone who has already worked as a model usually has a model folder that should be included in every job interview. Serious agencies don’t charge their models money for the exception in their card index or for the creation of a sedcard. The expenses count as an investment, as the agencies also earn money with the later bookings of their models. Another basic requirement for working as a model is to be disciplined. This applies to every kind of booking as well as to the castings completed beforehand.
Become a model – fashion, advertising and magazines
A not insignificant part of the profession consists of waiting times, working hours that often last well into the night and the persistence in poses for the perfect picture. All this, as well as make-up and hairdressing, is part of the work as a model. Since the young girls or male models are only a part of a whole team, it is necessary to write back one’s own ego and very quickly show a professional attitude to work in order to be really successful as a model. Therefore the punctuality of a model is one of the keys to success. This is especially true for outdoor shootings, where there is often little time to exploit the perfect lighting conditions. Discipline and punctuality have been the cradle of many German models not only in Paris. That’s why they have been in great demand internationally, not only since well-known faces such as Claudia Schiffer and Heidi Klum.
Not to be underestimated in a life as a model is also the ability to take criticism to heart, but not to lose the fun of the job in the frequent rejection during the castings. Often the responsible persons already have a precise picture of the models for their campaigns in their heads, where even small details can be the deciding factor for a refusal. For a successful model career it is therefore a big advantage to build up a network. With the contacts to photographers or other persons from the fashion industry or advertisement it is easier to remain in memory and to be so with a future project in the shortlist. The dependency on castings is much less strong through the network than without these additional opportunities.
Minimum size: Dimensions and weight
The “right” measurements and the “perfect” weight are always an issue for models, right from the first second. There is not one ideal picture, different areas demand different basics. For high fashion, slim and big applies, for commercial (advertising) the conditions are already more flexible. The requirements also vary depending on whether you only want to work nationally or internationally. Roughly speaking, the sizes can be divided in this way. The closer you are to these sizes, the better the conditions – apart from personality.
Body size for Fashion: 176 – 180cm / International
Slim figure, usually long hair
Body size for Fashion: 186 – 190cm / International
Slim or slightly sporty figure
Model application: cover letter and photos
The most important rule is to always keep your cover letter short – best of all, always use the application form on the website. Why? Here you will be asked for all important information, so you can’t forget anything, but you won’t invest too much time for your model agency cover letter and your application. 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, beside the actual agency work. That’s why you have to score points with your photo, not with a long cover letter. You can learn how to do that here: photos for application.
Model agency: Introduction and interview
The stage fright rises with every job interview, of course also with the presentation in the model agency. You have to know one thing, top agencies like ours and others are super sweet! Why? Photo shootings and video shoots are all about joy, fun and laughter – almost always. That’s why you need a trustful cooperation with your model management. That’s exactly why you start friendly from the first minute and that’s how it stays! That’s why you don’t need to have stage fright, just be natural! Here are even more tips for your application interview.
Prerequisites: Modeling with ambition and discipline
Requirements for models are very different, depending on the market you want to work in. A distinction is made here:
- National, Intercontinental or International?
- High Fashion and Haute Couture or Commercial (Advertising)?
- Age and competition?
Best Agers over 60 have very little competition, New Faces is a different story! If you make it to cities like New York, Paris or Milan, you’ll also see it at castings. But also in Berlin there are many who want to become models. So what’s always important for you is patience, ambition and discipline. Because nobody becomes a star overnight.
