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.

In advertising, they are much more authentic, since their dimensions resemble those of the average German woman. Did you know that the average woman in Germany is 44 in size? If you know a beautiful girl or a beautiful woman, tell her about us now!

Essen x Berlin – Restaurants in a metropolis

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 – You have to experience these 7 locations!

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.

The Berlin Dungeon – The History of the Capital as a Horror Story

Anyone who wants to experience Berlin’s history in a creepy and exciting way is in the right place at the Berlin Dungeon. 11 interactive locations in the Dungeon with professional actors take you on a journey through time. There you will experience important milestones of Berlin history in horror style. Once inside, there’s no going back. So think carefully whether you are ready for it, we can only recommend it to you!

Meeting Beyonce at Madame Tussauds

The famous wax museum can also be found in Berlin. If you’ve always wanted to meet Johnny Depp, Angela Merkel or Beyonce in person, you’ve come to the right place. By the way, Madame Tussauds is not only to be found in Berlin, but also in a few other metropolises of the world and everywhere it is a different experience. So you should travel to London, Amsterdam, Vienna, Hong Kong or Hollywood and take a trip to Madame Tussauds.

Danny Reinke Fashion Week 2019- From fisherman’s son to fashion 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.

Kilian Kerner is back – KXXK at MBFW 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.

KXXK Autumn/Winter 2019

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.

The show by Kilian Kerner – city life at the Berlin Fashionweek 2019

Amesh at #MBFW2019

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.

Amesh 2019

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.

Amesh presents his Autumn/Winter looks at the Fashion Week Berlin 2019

Our cute New Face Franziska: Classy and elegant

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

VIPs are also looking for Curved Models for jobs on TV, but fashion bloggers like Riccardo Simonetti are also at Fashion Week looking for great Plus Size Models for their Hamburg fashion show. Accordingly, our customers are increasingly sending us requests and enquiries as to whether we have a beautiful curved model for the next photo shoot. Now we have it!

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

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

The best districts of Berlin

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

Berlin hot spots for your first visit

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

Jobs in Berlin, tips for your next trip

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

Prenzlauer Berg: For a cosy time in Berlin

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

Friedrichshain: Party and Lifestyle 24/7

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

Kreuzberg: International and still Berlin

Just a few decades ago Kreuzberg was the multicultural district in which there were many problems. As a result, many creative people settled here and artists, so Kreuzberg became the popular district it is today.

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

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

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

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

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

It pays to book via Airbnb for Berlin?

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

Berlin Fashion Week 2016 – Model Manager: Behind the scenes

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

Fashion Week Model Management – Preparations, Emails and Networking

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Day 2: casting, casting, casting

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Fashion Week Castings and decision of fashion designers

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

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

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

Order and Fair – the heart of Fashion Week

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

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

Fittings for the big fashion shows at the runway

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

Shows and events at Fashion Week

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

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

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

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

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

Fashion Week Berlin Highlights 2015: Guido Maria Kretschmer to HolyGhost

For the 17th time the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week took place in Berlin. capital, fashion metropolis and always at the cutting edge of fashion trends and style. Well-known designers presented their spring/summer collections 2016 in numerous fashion shows, including Hugo Boss, Lena Hoschek, Riani, Guido Maria Kretschmer and many more. They all attracted fashion enthusiasts and international trade visitors to the capital for Fashion Week. The main attraction was the Mercedes Benz Fashion tent, directly behind the Brandenburg Gate. Young, innovative, but also established fashion designers also presented their collections and designs in several off-locations. Our Cocaine Models-Model Bookerin Regina Steinpress was live on site and captured the most beautiful backstage moments.

Highlights on Tuesday – The first shows

The Berlin Fashion Week starts this year on 07.07.2015 with the first opening shows. With the highlight “Panorama Berlin” and the side event “IT COUTURE – The Fashion & Technology Exhibition”. Both start punctually at 09.00 o’clock. The seats are of course occupied until the last one, music is released: Fashion! It’s not over until the afternoon. The first fashion show gets the fashion label “Sopopular Menswear” and opens the catwalk with the collection “The Last March Before Victory”. The combination of military elements and Asian style is a perfect match for the fashion label. This is followed by several trade fairs, shows, side events and fashion shows in which renowned designers such as Lena Hoschek and Marc Cain present their new collections.

Particularly interesting are the many so-called side events at Berlin Fashion Week, because most of the time anyone can visit them without an invitation. These are not as well-known and highly official as the shows in the Mercedes Benz Fashion tent, where only invited guests have access.
Catwalk – Impressions from the catwalk

Our models at Fashion-Week Berlin

Also three of our Cocaine models proved themselves in the castings. They are part of Berlin Fashion Week and run the catwalk for various fashion designers. Simon walks the catwalk for fashion label Brachmann, a classic in men’s fashion, which this time took place at the stage location in the “Me Collectors Room”. Another highlight of Fashion Week for our model Simon is that he is the only model to conquer the catwalk for the new women’s collection of the fashion label Riani. Our Nikola presents the fashion of Pearly Wong, an independent design label, made of monochrome garments with unique materials. And Niklas takes part in the colourful and varied IVANMAN fashion show, which is intended to provide an impetus for more colour. There are not many looks in the collection, but well thought-out and stylish! Just as one knows it from the designer Ivan Mandzukic.

Highlights on Wednesday – The great designers

Of course, the second day of Fashion Week in Berlin will be an exciting day. A lot of other shows by famous designers like Anja Gockel or William Fan follow. Also the aftershow parties in the evening pile up, many celebrities, models and bloggers gather to celebrate.

A special fashion show was that of designer and TV darling Guido Maria Kretschmer. With his new collection “Bon Voyage” he presented his latest autumn/winter fashion 2015. Couture and “Ready to Wear” looks are combined for simple elegance and femininity. Stefanie Giesinger and Betty Taube, two then Germanys next top model candidates, can also be found on the catwalk.

Another highlight is the show of the designer duo Holy Ghost. Great Crested Grebe, an exclusive “in-location” with pool in Berlin, was transformed into an extraordinary catwalk. The catwalk runs over the water and is laid with an oriental carpet, which keeps the atmosphere very Mediterranean. Hundreds of visitors gather to take part in this spectacle.

Our models continue to conquer the catwalks

One of our Cocaine models is getting another catwalk job. Simon is allowed to participate in the third show so far and presents the new Spring/Summer collection 2015 by designer Franziska Michael. With a very creative and crazy outfit he walks casually over the catwalk.

Between Catwalk and Germanys next topmodels

Highlights on Thursday – almost 30° & Fashion

Shows and masses at noon, parties in the evening. This is the motto of Fashion Week in Berlin. Also on Thursday there are some highlights not to miss.
Fashion designer Michael Michalsky can be seen again this time! After he was not at the Fashion Week in January, because of the Ebola outbreak in Africa, for which he donated a considerable amount, he is back in July. With his first couture collection “Atelier Michalsky” he wants to create new favourite pieces. As expected, he inspires with his latest collection of trade visitors, as well as fashion enthusiasts.

Another absolute highlight on this day is the Dutch model Doutzen Kroes. Last week in Paris – today in Berlin. The famous Victoria’s Secret model is not on the catwalk this time, but at the Mercedes Benz Press Vernisasge, where she poses in an enchanting evening dress.

Our Models

Also on Thursday one of our Cocaine models will be present. Nikola takes part in the “Panorama Berlin” fashion fair. The fair starts on the first day and presents the most important trends of the coming season, which include women’s and men’s collections as well as accessories from leading lifestyle brands.

Highlights on Friday – spectacular finish

Also on the last day of Fashion Week, Friday, there are some highlights, as well as spectacular shows.

Especially exciting is the Michalsky Stylenite, with which Fashion Week ends, as every year. This year, however, with a “light version”. There the designer, his collection and the Fashion Week will be celebrated once again. Of course, all seats are taken at this highlight, because everyone wants to be there at this special end! On the catwalk you can see flowing dresses in pastel shades, as well as a lot of fabric with flowers. The floral wreaths on the heads of the men’s models are particularly striking. The more conspicuous – the better!

But also many other designers like Ewa Herzog, Dorothee Schumacher or the Turkish designer Emre Erdemoglu, who also present their collections on the last day, have a lot of fabric with flowers on display. So-called “flood pants” also seem to be back in fashion! Turtleneck sweaters and shoulderless tops are very often seen on the catwalks in the German fashion metropolis!

Berlin Fashion Week: Shows, Dates and… Invitation?

Soon it will be time again and all model agencies and models will meet again in Berlin! The Fashionweek is coming up and invites to the big summer party. For a week, the German capital is turning back into a fashion Mecca. Many know the big shows of German designers from fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle or Harper’s Bazaar. Away from the mainstage there is also much else to discover, e.g. the Berlin Fashion Salon. But also the meeting places of the Be-to-Be economy. What does that mean? But let’s start with the basics!

+ Berlin + Munich + Cologne | Model Castings in February 2019

Why is Berlin Fashion Week?

Fashion changes so fast! Almost every month there is a new collection and new parts hang in the shop windows in the city centres, and there are always new highlights in online shops. All big chains but also all boutiques have to get their clothes from somewhere. Usually you visit a designer and look at the clothes in the showroom. Showrooms are therefore also one of the most frequent jobs for young models. Here you present the designer’s new fashion collections directly to the body, in front of a small audience, with only designers, someone from marketing and the customer. The customer can view the cuts directly, but also the fits and materials. Of course this way is relatively complex, because every single boutique owner has to come to the customer, needs a single appointment, a model and so there is a lot of effort. Berlin Fashion Week has exhibition halls with various themes, trend fashions, wedding fashions and oversizes. Hundreds of designers and producers position themselves at every trade fair. For one week trade visitors can inform themselves here about the latest collections and pieces. You can not only see the individual samples live, but also models who can present individual parts are booked on each stand. This is the main business of Berlin Fashion Week!

Fashion Designers Meet Customers

From the prêt-à-porter to the curvy, customers will find everything they need for their fashion boutiques and shops. Berlin will thus occupy the trends in German fashion boutiques for a few weeks. Of course, not only boutiques stop by, larger fashion chains also send their scouts out to discover trends. Hundreds of designers are lined up next to each other on each stand at each trade fair. There is a lot to discover here, i.e. fabrics and cuts that have been separated but also completely new ideas as well as Function Wear. The fashion industry never stands still and that’s why we meet for Fashion Week, whether in London, Paris, Milan, New York or Berlin to discover the latest trends. And when you meet, there are always others, of course. YouTube, Instagram Stars, Press, Stars and Starlets. For one week, the Who’s Who of the fashion and media world will meet in Berlin.

How many fashion shows are there at Berlin Fashion Week?

There are two different sections among the various fashion shows. One stage deals with the main shows. This is where the great German designers meet to present their new collections to a large audience. Not only normal guests are invited to these fashion shows, but also VIPs, YouTuber, Instagramer, press representatives and stars as well as actors, footballers or even musicians. On this mainstage there are usually eight shows per day over 5 days. From Monday to Friday you have the possibility to have a look at the new collections. On Saturday there will also be a big highlight, the audience and the tickets are of course strictly limited and not for sale.

In addition to the main stage, there are also 2.3 side stages where there are smaller shows by young designers. These include, for example, the Berlin Fashion Salon, where you can particularly look forward to new designers. That’s why there is also the Ethical Fashion Show. It runs parallel to the mainstage for 5 days and shows in particular fashion labels that focus on sustainability. These are the two different areas, the mainstage and the different side stages.

How to get tickets for Berlin Fashion Week?

It’s extremely hard to get tickets for the mainstage, of course designers prefer Instagram Stars or Youtuber, who can report directly and directly about the collections. Press representatives and magazines are increasingly receding into the background, but also stars and VIPs. If you want a ticket, you need good contacts and a contact person at the respective designer or his advertising or PR agency. But it is very difficult to get such tickets!

For the other side shows of Berlin Fashion Week it is also difficult to get tickets but a little easier. For example, if you have an Instagram account with at least 40,000 or 50,000 fans, you can get one or two tickets. The magic word here is accreditation. However, you should take care of it early, as well you should only try if you have something to offer in exchange for the coveted places.
How many people are at a fashion show in Berlin?

The tickets are of course strictly limited, so there is not much space. That is clear but how little space actually? The main show of Berlin Fashion Week usually comprises a maximum of 150 people. Each show can now accommodate 150 guests. This sounds like a lot of space at first, if you count sponsors, people from the team or partners, as well as buyers who buy larger quantities, then only 100 seats are left. These 100 places have to be distributed to stars you work with, instagramers you already work with, model agencies provide the models and so on! In the end there may be 80 tickets left for the invitation, for the whole of Germany but also for international guests.

So the space conditions are very tight, on the side stages it often gets even tighter. In the Berlin Fashion Salon there are shows in which only 30 or 40 guests take part. Is that what you thought? That’s why invitations to the shows are so popular!

Do international designers appear in Berlin?

You won’t meet many international designers at Berlin Fashion Week, Marc Cain is usually on site, but that’s the big international highlight! In Berlin he meets the top German designers, fashion labels RIANI and Dorothee Schumacher.

In which location will Berlin Fashion Week take place?

The designers’ shows take place in various locations in the city, a few years ago at the Brandenburg Gate in a specially constructed large tent with its own lounge and many conveniences, then in the Jandorf department store and this year for the first time in Berlin’s E-Werk.

Modeling at a fashion show? If you want to work as a model at one of the fashion shows yourself, you have to take part in the castings. The casting dates, especially for the great designers, are of course kept strictly under lock and key. Here only the big model agencies should participate, so that on the day of the decision one really has only the best candidates locally. There is not much time for the preparation in Berlin, as an agency or team you usually have 7 to 10 days to find the best models, to familiarize yourself with the location, to prepare all clothes and if necessary also to make changes if something is spontaneous. Therefore, the castings are usually not conducted publicly. With smaller labels, however, you are sometimes lucky as a model without a model agency. Because some of your castings are held in public, why is that? Of course, the great designers don’t necessarily need additional advertising, they already have other concepts for that. Smaller designers, e.g. from Berlin, would be happy to receive a little extra attention for your fashion label. That’s why some model castings are made public.
Berlin, Paris, London, New York, what is most worthwhile?

The concepts and the presentation are of course the most extravagant in Paris and New York! If you’ve experienced one like this here, Berlin will soon seem relatively small to you. Especially in Paris big shows are traditionally done. Everyone knows the famous productions for Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld, trend-setting with robots – in the supermarket or in the forest, every kind of production is feasible. In Berlin the scales are a bit smaller, here you have two or three locations, which are usually not specially prepared, the focus is on fashion. Of course, this has its very own charm. Fashion Week is not only important to see new clothes, but also to network and meet again.
Chanel Fall / Winter 2018 in Paris

Here you see the difference to Berlin, Paris, absolute highlight!

What is there to experience besides the fashion shows?

In the streets of Berlin, especially in the city centre, you will find a lot of events that take place parallel to Fashion Week. For example, there are great parties at the House of Weekend, one of the rooftop bars in Berlin. Not only cash, but also club! A truly unique experience for Berlin. If you are an agent at a model agency or a model at Fashion Week in the summer, it is also worth taking a look into the great crested diver, just a few metres from Warsaw Street. In the Great Crested Grebe you not only have a club but also a huge pool. Especially in the hot summer days, the cooling in the evening is perfect here. But there are also smaller events and parties, from DJs to barbecues. Of course you have not only the time to visit events in the evening, but also many events in the night. Magazine Parties in clubs, private parties in larger houses but also designer events, often with celebrity singers who present new songs for an invited audience. From a cosy barbecue to a magazine party you can experience so much in Berlin. Many dates can be found on the official site of the would Fashion Week but also always in our fashion blog!

Modeling Agency Berlin: Application, Castings, Jobs + Teenager

You are looking for a modeling agency in Berlin? And when you find them, how do you apply the best? Castings, photo shoots, trips abroad: So you have to apply in a modeling agency in Berlin!

Requirements for Models in Berlin

First, you should think about the requirements of models. Every modeling agency is focused on a specific market. There are the modeling agencies that work mainly in fashion but also with high fashion. The more exclusive the brands, the more international, the stricter the customer’s specifications. These high fashion agencies also often work abroad – like us.

This raises the first question, do you have time to travel? Such a stay abroad for models usually takes 45 to 60 days. Here you should not only have time to travel, your height should also be based on the international market. That means you should be at least 175 cm tall as a girl / woman, ideally 178 cm to 180 cm. For men models, these measurements are only 10 cm larger. If you meet both criteria, you have the perfect conditions for a high fashion modeling agency and national and international jobs.

Those who do not meet these criteria, should take a look at People agencies! People agencies are less focused on the international high-fashion market and are more involved in advertising. In commercials, it is less relevant if the body size fits perfectly to the international dimensions, but also the proportions around the waist, waist and chest. The jobs in people agencies are just as demanding, from the online shop to the commercial. For Best Ager Models, Tattoo Models, and more. the perfect choice. Here you can find good people agencies.

Become a Model with 14, 15, 16 Years

When do I start modeling the best? Stop: Your school always works! That you have good grades is a very important prerequisite for your entire life. Sure, school is still about “apples and pears”, but in your later life as a model, it’s about the euro and the dollar. Therefore, stay focused on the school first, that should remain so. Why is that? During school, you have very little opportunity to work as a model, you can not travel, you can not stay out of school for several days, and there are always retreats. So if you decide to model at the age of 14, 15 or 16, you should definitely bring a lot of patience with you. It really only starts as a model when you have finished school in Berlin. Then you can not only work in Berlin but also in Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt or even abroad and travel to great cities, such as Paris, Milan and London. As a Berlin model, you can take it much further, traveling to New York and Tokyo. But first everything starts very small.

Model Agency Berlin: Male Models

Are there really any differences between female models and male models? Yes. If you work as a model agency in Berlin with men’s models, there is a difference in the structure of the model portfolio. Many photographers are men and prefer to photograph women. Much like female photographers usually prefer to take pictures of men. Since the number of male photographers is higher than that of females, building a book takes longer than women do.

Nerver seen before: Paris, Milan, Lndon

That’s why it pays to go abroad as a male model. Special if you are still completely new to the market. If you have worked as a model only in Berlin so far, of course, nobody knows you in Italy or France. This effect, we call it “Never Seen Before”, you can perfectly use as young young model from Berlin to advance your career. When you make the first castings at a Fashion Week, you will gain valuable experience and for the first time see how much competition there is and how strong your competition is. 4 million people live in Berlin, in the megacity it is often 10 million, as in New York and Istanbul more than 15 million people or even in Tokyo almost 30 million people. Not only are ten times as many jobs here as in Berlin, here you also have ten times as much competition. Therefore, as a Berlin model agency, you should also look carefully into which market you like as a type.

Modeling worldwide: USA to Europe and Asia

Model Agency Berlin: Teenager

If you still like to start early, even as a teenager, you are welcome in our modeling agency! We are always looking for young talents and promote you in your career. From first-class photographers to first-class customers and a family service. For the first conversation and getting to know each other, we always like to invite parents.

That your parents know about everything is a very important point! As a model, sometimes you are under stress, especially if you are already a teenager and you are still in school in or out of the city center. When stressful times come, it’s important to have somebody in your back to keep you away. Sometimes just a sweet word is enough, “you can do it”!

The best modeling agency in Berlin?

About Berlin there is no official ranking for modeling agencies. In Germany, we are in the top ten! Already three times we have been elected to one of the top 10 agencies in Germany, although our agency has only just 3 years – mega start! The last Top 10 recommendation we received in late 2017 from the German youth magazine, the Bravo Girl! To be listed as a Top 10 Model Agency is an amazing affirmation to us, for all the work we invest in our models. Because we are more than a modeling agency, media production, influencer marketing, you are one of the top addresses for Germany, Europe and jobs worldwide! Because we are also very present abroad and work with modeling agencies all over the world, from New York to Hong Kong. If you want to apply now as a model, send us your application for Berlin here.

Model Agency Berlin: Jobs

Which jobs can you actually do as a model? The variety is huge! Usually you start your first jobs for online shops and in showrooms. Meanwhile, there are also many photo shoots for Instagram, companies have to post here once a day, sometimes twice. For this, constantly need new photo material, especially as a young model you will be happy to book here, as Instagram also has a very young target group. Most photo shoots and jobs take place directly in Berlin. Mostly directly in Berlin-Mitte, there are many photo studios and of course many beautiful corners and great architectural buildings. Especially on the Museum Island, there are so many beautiful places to take pictures outdoors in the summer. If you’ve gained more experience as a model after a few months, you’ll get your first jobs on commercials. Commercials are much more demanding, as you have to bring along acting talent as a model.

Minimum measurements for men and women

The requirements for models differ for men’s models and female models in their height, why is that? As you can read in our article about Pret-a-Porter and Haute Couture, especially fashion collections of designers are cut to specific dimensions. As a result, uniform fashion shows can be carried out later, as well as showrooms and photo shoots. Due to the same dimensions, it is easier for designers but also for event agencies and advertising agencies to plan concepts and shows.

Women are usually 10 cm shorter than men. If you want to start 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. For men models applies in model agencies a minimum size of 185 cm. Ideally, you should not be over 192 cm. For high fashion models, the figure should be slim, so you have the best chances and to work for international high fashion brands. As a Curvy Model you are already more flexible. The height should be similar. Here 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 during the casting, as well as the photos for your application, simple clothes is the alpha and omega! You should also refrain from makeup, your hair should be open. If you want to work in Berlin, it’s all about naturalness! No tanning salon, no gel nails, no hair extensions and especially no dyed hair! Therefore, come to the casting absolutely natural.

Berlin Jobs: Advertising, Online Shops and Fashion Week

The different jobs that you can do as a model in Berlin are extremely diverse! From the international online shop to the campaign shoot or photo shoots for fashion magazines. In Berlin you can experience much more as a model, because twice a year the Fashion Week takes place. At the Fashion Week, the top German fashion designers will meet to present their new collections for the season. In the process, new faces in the fashion industry are taking part in order to experience many castings once. Because that, you have only in the big mega cities around London & Co.

Showrooms and photo shoot: Jobs in Berlin

The absolute basic job of a model is the showroom. A showroom can present it to you like a small fashion show, only without an audience. Here sellers or designers meet with the customers. For this, one, two or three models are booked, who present the current pieces of the collection directly on the body. So the customer can make a good impression about the shapes and dimensions, as well as fabrics and workmanship of the garments. Larger fashion shows are rare, you will have them later at work abroad, as in Milan, Paris or London. As soon as you have some experience and your model book is set up, you will increasingly work for photo shoots. Photo shoots are extremely multi-faceted, from the online shop to the campaign or even catalogs, the family shooting and couples shooting, the best friends or all alone in the Berlin 200qm studio. The more experience you have gained as a model and the more positive feedback you receive from the customer, the higher your chance of being booked for larger jobs, such as commercials.

Commercials as Creme de la creme of jobs in Berlin

If you work as a model in Berlin for commercials, then you have already made it very far! For commercials are no longer just about having talent as a model, but also about acting skills. In addition, the reputation of such a commercial is even greater than a photo shoot! With a little luck, the commercial will even be published in several countries, and you will get additional buyouts. This is a fee you get for publishing pictures or photos. This additional fee will be charged in each case if a commercial z.b. used for Germany, on TV and television, for a year. If this commercial is then renewed for another year, or if another country is added, new buyouts will be made.

Become a model in Berlin

Book a model Berlin: Briefing, booking and model agency – that’s how it works

You are looking for a model in Berlin? Our model agency provides first-class models with experience, references and absolute ambition – all in one! But how does a module booking actually work? Our guide for your first booking in Berlin. Frame Collect information about the photo shoot:

Photoshooting appointment, location, team, rights of use & Co.

First, you should collect all the important frame information for the upcoming photo shoot in Berlin. The A & O is the ultimate customer. Who will use the photos at the end of production? This includes on the one hand the concrete date but also the start and end time of the photo shoot. For a booking to run without stress, the appointment should be at least 7 days in advance. Add to that the team of photographer, make-up artist (hair + make-up) and stylist. It is important for the model that a make-up artist is on site, own make-up is not welcome. Ideally, also a stylist. Both should be mentioned next to the photographer in the briefing.

Add to that the location, no matter if it is in Berlin-Mitte or in another city like Hamburg or Paris, for the planning of a modeling agency the knowledge about the place of production is important. Also for you as a customer the proximity of the models is very important and therefore a request should also contain the information about the shooting location. To this end, the rights of use should be precisely coordinated:

  • In which countries is something published?
  • How long will it be published there?
  • In what media is it published?

Production: Photos, Videos, Moderation & Co.

In the following, the job should be described, what is produced? Is it about a photo shoot, alone or with other models or video recordings or even moderation for TV / streaming or fairs. In addition, the rights of use of the recordings come. As far as rights of use (also buyouts) are concerned, there is a large list of possibilities, from social networks to the online shop to image brochures, pure internal use for employee training purposes or even marketing in the cinema and TV or on YouTube and streaming portals , The media should be detailed, as the usage rights for models are very important. A small example: If a shoot z.b. published only on an Instagram channel, for a year, the cost is much lower than if the shoot is used worldwide for an online store, 2 years. In the first briefing, always mention the complete, planned usage rights of the production.

Here is the most important information that you should send to a modeling agency if you want to book a model from Berlin:

  1. End customer – who uses the recordings
  2. Shooting appointment
  3. Shooting location
  4. Team – photographer, make-up artist, stylist
  5. Production (photo, video, moderation, etc.)
  6. Usage rights

Inquiry – How do I contact a modeling agency?

If you have gathered all the information and have no further questions, the best way is to send everything clean in an e-mail. This keeps the history from start to finish and makes it easier to send data. The e-mail will then arrive in the booking team of the modeling agency and will be processed promptly, since all the information already contained in the e-mail can be quickly made a selection.

If you have any questions about the shooting or model booking, it is advisable to call the agency. Every reputable modeling agency has a phone number but also several contact addresses for the different bookers and areas. Here you can pick the right contact person and contact you. Basically, contact via e-mail is recommended. The corresponding model agent will then report back, either with queries or with a first selection of suggestions.

Sedcards – What are the suggestions of a modeling agency?

When proposals for a photo shoot are sent, all sedcards are attached. The sedcard includes various photos of the models, a portrait, a whole body, once fashion, once sports, catwalk, a compilation of jobs that the model has already made. So the customer can quickly make an impression on the look of the model, but also gets all the information about the body size, chest, waist, hip, shoe size and of course hair and eye color.

The Sedcards are images (not PDF files), thus easy to open from the tablet, iPhone, PC or even notebook. With one click you can look at the next setcard and find your own favorites quickly and easily.

Booking Confirmation – The final details of the booking for model and production

If you have made your choice, it will go into the booking of the model. First, we will now discuss exactly what the job of the model is, what times are definitely fixed and what places. Likewise all conditions of use were discussed, now the booking confirmation can be written. After receiving the booking confirmation, you return a signed copy to the model agency, now the model is confirmed for you.

Cost – How much does a model booking cost?

The costs for models are very different, but in a reputable and established modeling agency you should always expect a four-figure amount, which is at least, when it comes to photo shoots and commercials. New Faces with a higher three-digit. New Faces are models that are at the very beginning of their careers and are still working on their portfolio. Smaller jobs and shows, where no photo use takes place (keyword usage rights) but also not a broad public, there are also slightly lower fees. Often also often new faces are booked, the first experiences must collect. Before working on a major fashion show, they first work together in showrooms to gain initial experience with designers and clients.

Overtime – What if a shoot takes longer?

The booking confirmation will already record the full duration of the photo shoot. There is a specific start time and a concrete end time. Between these times, the photo model is on the shooting set. Should a photo shoot take longer, Overtime will charge. Overtime is usually scheduled for one hour, which means every beginning hour is calculated. For most photo shoots, however, you have a 30-minute grace, so you can cover something. Should a shoot be covered for more than 30 minutes, the first hour of overtime will be noticed. There are usually two different models, a full-day booking, here is the model for 8 hours on the set, plus one hour break, which must be set between the 8 hours. On the other hand, there is a half-day booking, this is usually remunerated with 60 to 70% of the rule Gage. Since no other job will be possible that day, the payment is just over 50%. Overtime does not change the buyouts, they stay untouched.

At the time you are about 17-18, you will be ready to work as a professional model and will already have a model book, with great pictures. Most of the best Models all over the world started in the age of 14-16. If you want to know more about modeling, check out become a model or the blog: become a model.

You want to become a model at 15?

At the age of 15, you will be very young, but you are getting closer and closer to your age, because it pays off to start as a model. If you have the dream of becoming a model you should always remember that you will also need a lot of time. First, it’s about your setup, you have to collect first experience as a model and also the first photos for your model portfolio. Your model portfolio should be as extensive as possible, so that customers can imagine exactly what they would look like for their commercial or photo shoot. Here is a small example, a customer is looking for a model that should not only look good but also be able to ride a bicycle. This sounds easy at first, but you have to deliver perfect posings in the moving motion and your facial expressions must fit perfectly, which is a great challenge, for which you need a lot of experience. A little further thought it could be a couple shooting, for a contact lens manufacturer, also here you have to harmonize perfectly with your model partner, so that everything looks authentic and honest.

Your first jobs: Showrooms, Onlineshops and Instagram

If you have achieved this, partly acting experience, it is a long way. But at the age of 15, you are slowly getting into the age when it pays to work as a model. If you want to start as a model at the age of 15, you’ll probably have your first jobs in showrooms. At such a showroom, fashion designers present their new collections. The invited guests are buyers of major fashion chains or fashion boutiques, domestic or abroad.

Showroom: Presentation of fashion in front of buyers

On such a showroom no photos or video are produced, you are only booked as a model to present the garments. The customer can make a direct impression of the cuts, fabrics and colors. Also about the processing and the body shape or fit.

Photo shoots for online shops, Instagram and commercials

Often you will also be booked for the first small photo shoots, z.b. for Instagram. In such an Instagram photoshoot, the customer books you directly to take 15 or 20 shots. Such shootings then take place twice a month instead of with different models. So the customer can always, that is every day, post a new photo. The models are different on each photo and so the Instagram channel comes alive. These are usually the first jobs.

Of course, as soon as you have more experience, the jobs would be much more demanding. From the online shop Shooting with 30 different parts to the commercial, where ultimately comes to a perfect second, in which you smile. The big challenge here, the whole set has to be right. If z.b. two models are booked and in addition 50 extras in a large location the a club, z.b. to promote a soft drink, then every moment must sit, that means every single actor must act perfectly. A second day of shooting is impossible, for personal and organizational reasons, moreover it would be very expensive!

You realize, the job of a model is really demanding! If you really want to be a model, then you need a lot of ambition and motivation, so you can compete with young models in the big competition. Your modeling agency or your management must always be able to count on you.

What does a model look like with the school?

The better your grades are and the more diligent you are in school, that it’s easy to get free for a day or two. In particular, if your teacher or your school hears that you’re working for a reputable client, like Prada or Dior, you’ll usually get free if your achievements are right at school. Therefore, it is very worthwhile for you to make an effort in school, here you not only learn important things for life, but you also get to know many friends. You should enjoy the time!

Casting Agency – How does a casting work?

Quickly explained – In principle, there are two variants of casting. The e-casting is relatively undemanding. Models will submit a pre-selected video after prior selection. This saves a lot of travel and organization. Live Castings are a bit more demanding. Model Castings typically gather a lot of different people. Not just your own team and models. Often many helpers in the rooms or editors of magazines cavort on large castings. The important thing is to keep calm. Of course every model wants to have the job and every model has a good model portfolio. Here, despite all competition, yet with experience and charisma shine, without excitement, is a real challenge. We are looking for exactly these special talents together with you. You will prove the greatest professionalism on the set.

Model Castings for reach and social media marketing

A casting can be used for you as an advertising agency, fashion label or brand fantastic to increase reach. With a well-organized process, as well as well-structured PR measures, you can quickly achieve high coverage, for example in social networks. So a casting is also ideal for social media marketing. We analyze markets and invest smart in the best social media channels. Because models are also influencers! Working with agencies and designers is great fun. Our projects were extensive, from boutique casting to Berlin Fashion Week to the Mercedes-Benz Cologne Fashion Days.

Not just PR – Live or E-Castings for the best models

For fashion shows, advertising, magazines and TV formats we always find the perfect cast with our network! We take care of the casting process, planning and organization. Whether as a casting for commercials, for fashion shows in your stores or for the upcoming image campaign, we are your advisor and partner by your side. Quick suggestions and selection are guaranteed with us as a casting agency for models for you and your team.

With established partner agencies, we can quickly provide the perfect candidates and proposals, always arranging the best candidates, with all our experience and know-how from nearly a decade of media work. It has always been important for our customers to get everything from one source. Your individual wishes and ideas are always in the center of every decision our managers. From the first selection to the perfect model, as well as the entire finalization of the booking, scheduling and the entire organization around the shoot. Well-organized management often saves many days, because there is no need for conversation-intensive communication channels between the individual team members of the media production. Strong media, a lot of reach and a personal contact network.

More than good looks – we are looking for talent!

The fewer interim arrangements made in the course of a production, the less time is wasted. Project and marketing managers attach importance to efficient work. Often models are already booked for normal shootings, which have their special talents, for example martial arts but also music. With us you will find the perfect candidate! All services from a single source: mediation, booking, planning, that’s the advantage of our agency. Reliable project management and our personal network of contacts – Plan your next casting with Cocaine Models.

E-casting, live casting or model Gosee

In principle, there are three forms of casting. There are fast castings where many models come together for an appointment during a short period of time. A Gosee. More detailed are then live castings with subsequent fitting of the fashion collection or video test with the product. Depending on the job profile, the castings require different qualifications from the models such as drama, sports, social interaction, and much more. The respective model requirements are very different! There are also e-castings. When E-casting you meet the model not live in the agency or in your company, but get a video recording. The video is produced by the model according to a well-defined pattern. This saves a lot of effort, time and organization. Read more about casting preparation here.

  • Fast Gosee
  • Live casting with fitting / test
  • E-casting (with videos)
