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!

Eugenia – Beautiful, smart and with new fashion video!

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

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

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

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

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

Miss Long Legs: Michelle! New Showreel

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

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

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

If you don’t want to miss a video of her but also of our other models, then follow our model agency on YouTube!

Youtube Highlight July 2018: On the way to becoming a top model

Our highlights from July 2018 with video shootings from Berlin, Cologne, Düsseldorf and Munich! Our whole team was on the road all over Germany to equip our New Faces but also our professional models with new photos and video material. Meanwhile we produce in a good month, alone as an agency, without jobs from the customer, over ten videos, which you find by the way also always completely up-to-date on our model agency YouTube channel! That’s why from this month on we’ve decided to pack all our highlights in a great video so that you can see right away what was going on this month. If you are more interested in one of our models, e.g. to book it for a photo shoot or also for e-commerce, lookbook or a commercial, you can have a closer look at all photos and videos in the model’s portfolio. Let’s start with our first highlight episode, July 2018, from Berlin to Munich!

Arina from Munich at the London Fashion Week + New Video

Arina lives in southern Germany, between mountains, fresh air and a lot of nature! The perfect conditions to have the perfect conditions as a model with a healthy lifestyle and a little sport. Although it does not quite reach the 176cm, Arina has great potential not only for the German market, but also for the international model market.

Arina at London Fashion Week – 5 shows

Already in her first weeks Arina was at the London Fashion Week! With a total of 5 jobs she had a great start in her career there. Modeling in London is a real challenge! Because in London there is a lot of competition for castings. In Berlin, where you may be with 10 or 15 other models, 80 to 100 models come to a designer casting in London, especially for Fashion Week. The castings are not even public! Only the good model agencies get the casting dates and addresses for the fashion shows in London. Our Arina made it with our partner agency Body London directly on 5 shows. We are very proud of our little one! Arina is an absolute new discovery and we hope that you will soon see her on Instagram channels of your favourite fashion brands or in the online shop with new fashion collections. If you want to see more of Arina, check out Arina’s model portfolio!

The second video of our enchanting Linn! Back from New York we go directly to Berlin for the photo shoot and the video shoot for her model portfolio.

Of course, Berlin has the perfect locations for this. We grabbed our Creative Art Director Oliver Rudolph and our videographer Robin Platte and dived into the centre of Berlin with Linn. Instead of in urban Berlin (corners with graffiti, posters, partly prefabricated buildings), this time we decided on a classic location, very close to the Museum Island. Here we can also show Linn from a completely different light, classic and elegant.

You will find the photos in her modelbook soon! We also have this wonderful new video for you! You can find more of Linn, of course also all photos and videos, in Linn’s model folder.

Lets get chic – fashion shows, workshops & more

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

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

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

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

 

Museum of Arts & Crafts – Exhibition Department Fashion

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

Party in Hamburg – Celebrating after the event in Hamburg

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

Sedcard-Shooting: A multifaceted location and top fashion photographer

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

Sedcard shooting: A windy start

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

 

 

Sedcard obligation: Clean images

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

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

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

 

 

Large image selection – Many viewing angles

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

 

 

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

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

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

Model Malia: “Cape Town was a coincidence”

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

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

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

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

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

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

Malia about the possibilities as a model in Cape Town

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

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

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

Ü30 models with blond short hair. Also male models.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Malias Cape Town Highlights

CM: What are your personal Cape Town highlights?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

CM: Dear Malia, thank you for the interview!

Model Jeremy – Lifestyle, Fashion and Perfume Expert

Jeremy Fragrance – Besides Youtube clips on men’s perfumes, the smart Mister Cool is also successful in the model business. In addition to large jobs such as for an energy drink manufacturer, Jeremy has been decorating the model card index of Cocaine Models since 2015. We talked to Jeremy about his skills, future plans and experience in the modeling business.

Model Jeremy: Mister Attitude!

CM: You’ve already had some experience as a model, what were your best experiences/jobs?

Jeremy: Just recently I had two jobs that I liked very much, I was allowed to dance on the catwalk! Power and a good mood – that’s what we should communicate and that’s what I did.

CM: Where do you see your strengths as a model?

Jeremy: Versatility and discipline are my strengths. I can let go completely and be free, at the same time I listen carefully to the wishes of the customer to achieve the best possible result or even surprise him with an even better idea/pose.

Jeremy: CM: Do you have a fashion tip?

Jeremy: Always be authentic, no matter what emotion it is, as long as it is authentic – it’s good!

CM: What is your professional mantra?

Jeremy: Being unique and yet suitable for the masses.

CM: What else do you want to achieve in the future?

Jeremy: I love it when people send me Whatsapp photos when they see me in magazines and more!

CM: Dear Jeremy, thank you for the interview!

Fashion interview: Fashion & Lifestyle behind the scenes

With FIV Magazine we are realizing the new interview portal for fashion, fashion, lifestyle and VIPs together with editor-in-chief Michelle Hamacher.

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

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

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!

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

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

BRAX Store Opening

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

Fashion Highlights for Men & Buffet

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

The Location

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

The Highlights

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

On the second floor there was a very special highlight…

Photo shooting with the gala

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

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

BRAX – now in Cologne

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

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

Fashion & Fashion Trends: The History and Philosophy of Clothing

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

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

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

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

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

Fashion industry – off-the-peg trends and collections

Women and men – fashion as an industrial product

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

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

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

Fashion trends – media and trend research

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

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

fashion philosophy – more than just clothing

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

Photo shooting in the desert (Germany) with Marie Dahmen

Two models, two photographers, one sensational location. Our desert shooting yesterday in Frechen with two of our New Faces and the girls from “City Boutiques” was a complete success. Here is a brief summary of the most exciting moments behind the scenes. Have a look at the final pictures below and read how such a shooting day works.

excitement before the desert shoot

Our studio in Cologne is slowly filling up with colourful clothes and make-up utensils. Outfits are tried on, accessories admired and assigned to our two models Marie and Pia. Caro and Jennifer from City Boutiques brought a suitcase full of treasures. Through these two we can borrow the latest collections of small boutiques from Cologne for our shooting. GREAT!

Makeup - Model - Foto shooting (Germany)

The models are already made up by our make-up artist Angie, hair spray smell hangs in the air and the mood is good. Everyone is excited, because there is not just any normal studio shooting coming up, NO: We are shooting today in a desert scenery, in the middle of nature. But we don’t jump quickly into our private jet, we simply don’t drive our shooting mobile for an hour and are at our dream location: A desert landscape like in the middle west of the USA, directly in front of our front door in Frechen near Cologne.

Our two photographers Oli and Moritz can’t wait to jump out of the car, the weather is better than expected, even if there is no sunshine, the lighting conditions are perfect. After a short walk through nature, with two huge suitcases full of clothes and make-up, we finally arrived at the scene.

Model posing in icing sugar sand

The shooting is on, the cameras are flashing and our models are setting the scene in the white dream beach sand. The outfits are changed behind the next hill, the face shortly after powdered and it goes on. The view over the landscape is really DREAMY and our models give everything at posing! The photos are corresponding! Here again a big praise to our models!

The weather grumbles up after one and a half hours of shooting, thick raindrops patter down on us. Our models don’t let this unsettle them and make a top figure in their outfits even in the rain. The outfits are changed one last time, our photographers realize their last picture visions, then they are quickly packed together. It gets cold and with wet hair no thick cardigan will help. On the way to our shooting mobile the setting sun can be seen for a moment and shines in a shining orange over the desert landscape. An exciting photo shoot ends with an impressive sight. We are proud of the whole team and are looking forward to the photos!

Our moodboard! NIOMO London Shooting

As model & media managers we only know contemplative Christmas from television – probably it will remain that way for a long time to come. Between the most contemplative of all celebrations of the year (Christmas) and New Year’s Eve in the new year, we have decided to make a last high-quality shooting for 2014. It was an honor!

The Jewellery Shooting – Jewellery from the fashion metropolis

For one of the newest and perhaps soon hottest jewellery labels from London: NIOMO Jewellery. Our goal, spontaneously, on the first Monday after Christmas days, to create a complete photo set. We have one of our favorites from Kiev, a local photographer, matching make-up artists for the hand and neck close-ups. Jewellery, during the shooting the special challenge, which should come to the fore. Besides the usual set and photo equipment, we looked for a really chic and busy location in Cologne’s Mediapark. The moodboard is ready, now we photograph the new collection of the London jewellery manufacturer NIOMO.

NIOMO London

NIOMO is made by two enchanting young ladies. Both have studied and understood fashion and trends for themselves, for inner light, in London. That you see, all the jewelry creations, handmade and really adorable. Soon NIOMO jewelry will also be available in unisex, for men and women.

+ Do you know?

 

Today we want to show you what is important if you want to become a model in Hamburg and what requirements you have to meet.

Prerequisites for Models in Hamburg

The competition is great! Many who live in the country try their luck in Hamburg. Maybe you live in the countryside, in a village or in a small town, or maybe in the middle of Hamburg, Altona or HafenCity. However, the same requirements apply to all of them, e.g. when it comes to body size, clothing, but also the measurements around the chest, hips and waist. However, the dimensions are only part of the requirements, as well as a healthy diet, body care but also paying attention to figure, hair, nails,… many details most people don’t think about when they talk about how easy or difficult it is to become a model. Once all the basic requirements have been met, however, it’s all about the model’s own character and personality. Working with management is very important, at the beginning it is less intense, but the longer you work as a model, the more intensive the collaboration becomes.

  • General good appearance and well-groomed appearance
  • Healthy diet and regular exercise
  • Professional collaboration with management and customers
  • Ambition and commitment to the job as a model

Modeling & School? First Castings and Jobs

For example, if you are still at school at the beginning and have two or three years ahead of you, you will do fewer jobs at the beginning. This is quite normal, because you should concentrate on school and your education! However, as soon as the school comes to an end, the first international planning will ideally begin. If it doesn’t work internationally, you can still look forward to many more jobs! Because as a student you are often confined, between the different exams, the holidays, enjoy your free time! As soon as you have the time, you can travel, you can plan travel days, you are flexible and you have a good school leaving certificate in your pocket. For example, as a model it is important that you can express yourself well, many customers speak English, so it is very important that you speak good English! But there is also a little bit of mathematics, e.g. when it comes to calculating your own travel expenses. The more successful you are as a model, the more you will invest in a photographer. Especially in Hamburg there are many good photographers. Of course, you no longer have to work with everyone. That’s why good photographers in Hamburg also cost money. But as soon as you earn money in your first jobs, you will also invest in the first photographers to improve your model portfolio!

Live casting – A look behind the scenes

You haven’t seen a live model casting yet? Here is a small example from our YouTube Channel!

Application to a modeling agency as a hamburger

If you want to apply in a Hamburg model agency, you don’t need a professional photo shoot. All your model agency wants to see in Hamburg are Polaroids. Polaroids are super easy to create, all you need is a good friend or a good friend, a mobile phone and daylight! In the city centre you have to get the right outfit, black trousers, a black top, black or white, plain shoes. Your underwear should be black, too. As a woman you should also buy a bikini and high heels. If you are new to Hamburg, here are some recommendations for you: Fashion boutiquen Hamburg. For your model agency you grab good daylight and a relatively simple wall. The background of your photo should be as bad as possible so that nothing distracts from you! You don’t need make-up or styling. All your modeling agency wants to see is you!

Model Coachings by CM – Catwalk Training, Acting & more

Send photos: Professional shooting or simply with your mobile phone?

In the next step you take a full body photo, a portrait and another portrait with a smile. First in normal outfit, black jeans, black top and shoes. If you are already over 16 years old, you can also send bikini Polaroid or Polaroids in underwear. If you’re under 16, you shouldn’t do that! It is important to be seen with your whole body, once your face in the portrait and another photo with a smile. Why is laughter so important? As a model, you work in advertising for a lot of jobs. Advertising sells through friendliness, emotions that you as a model can arouse in you, better than anyone else! That’s why there should be a laughing portrait of you.

After the recording: Patience is a virtue – also in Hamburg!

Before you send your application to a modeling agency, you should talk to your parents and of course you should also think about the head gasket you are entering into as a model. You want to build a professional career. This can only be achieved with the support of a management and the network that comes with it. So you always have to be prepared that no success will come overnight. It took the best youtube years. It took the greatest Hollywood actors years. No star is born overnight. That’s why you should always stay professional, you should take the time for your education, that is for your school, and you should give yourself and your career time. If you develop step by step, build up your modelbook over the first years, then do bigger jobs or go abroad for a few months or years, that’s the right way! A reputable model agency like ours supports you with professional management and support to ensure that you get your Modelmappe develops perfectly and builds you up for the ideal market, for your requirements. Once you have taken your photos for your first model application in Hamburg, all you need is your contact details and the most important measurements, as well as your body size, shoes or clothing size. That’s all a good modeling agency needs from you! The model scouts in the agency have a lot of experience and a very professional view to evaluate applications from Hamburg.

Jobs in Hamburg: Online Shops, Social Media & TV Advertising

When you start modeling, your first jobs are mainly to do Showrooms. Such a showroom in Hamburg is a small, internal event where designers, marketing managers or sales people meet with the customer to select parts of the new collection. These new fashion pieces should of course be shown to you as a model! How are the seams processed, what is the nature of the materials, how are the jeans or the jacket positioned? In order for the designer, sales manager or marketing manager to have a model directly on site, young models in particular are booked for this type of job. You usually work in downtown Hamburg, where designers meet their clients. Once you’ve gained your first experiences and upgraded your model portfolio through test shootings with photographers, you’ll get your first jobs for social media shootings or for online shops!

Start: Shootings, Social Media, Online Shop and Image

There are always new fashion collections or new products. Exactly, it doesn’t always have to be about fashion trends! Just look at smartphones, there is always a new iPhone or a new mobile phone from Samsung Galaxy to HTC. There are also many new models, new commercials and photo shoots in the automotive industry. Models are needed for every new brand and every new model. Also for new seasons but also for different seasons, spring, summer, autumn and winter! Every emotional set needs its individual composition of photo models, production team but also advertising agency, which creates the creative concept. There are always new jobs in Hamburg! If you work hard and show your modeling agency or management that you are professional on jobs and on time, the customers are satisfied with you, then you will eventually get your first commercials!
Next Level: Jobs for commercials and TV advertising in Hamburg

Nowadays, the word TV is of course often equated with broadcasting, e.g. through YouTube advertising. Advertising in video format, be it the advertising film for upstream YouTube videos, the advertising film for TV and cinema or Influencer Marketing with videos on YouTube, here lies the greatest potential for you as a model. Since the production of commercials by media agencies is quite complex, the productions are not only used in Germany. Unlike regional brands that use your photos in the Hamburg area, for example, such TV commercials are often broadcast throughout the German-speaking region, including Germany, Austria and Switzerland. However, many spots are also shown throughout Europe or even internationally, in America and Asia. Hamburg offers great potential for you as a model!

Local agency or international agency?

If you want to start as a model in the field of media and advertising, then with a management you have the best agencies not only to get jobs in Hamburg but also in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and Düsseldorf. If you want to work as a fulltime model and professionally, then you not only need jobs here but also in other cities. Therefore it is important for you as a young model to choose an international model agency that offers the best perspectives not only for Hamburg but also for Germany and for the international stage, ideally!

We hope you learned a little bit and have summarized the most important articles about modeling for you here!

Lisa from Zurich rocks for Onygo in Germany!

Lisa masters one job after the other with a lot of effort and fun in her job as a model. Our Lisa comes from Zurich, models all over Europe and is currently in London to gain even more experience as a model. But for her last job in Germany she rocked at the shooting for the well-known fashion brand Onygo, which is always equipped with the latest shoes for girls. True to the motto “Shoe love is true love”, they have been following their successful branch concept in Germany since 2016. From boots, flats and sandals to sneakers, heels and platforms. Headgear such as hats and caps are also included!

A tight schedule for the Onygo Shooting in Cologne!

The shooting took place in Cologne early in the morning. Lisa had to get out of bed early to get to her job on time. Punctuality is the be-all and end-all for a model! After all, a whole team is already waiting for them, which wants to work without delay. Arrived at the agreed meeting point Lisa first had to go to the mask, where she was made up for her job. Since the shooting took place under the motto ” Streetstyle”, the make-up was kept rather discreet and suitable for everyday use. After the styling is finished, we go to the shooting location. Shootings are not always indoors in the warm studio, because for the Onygo shooting their streetstyle look was shot authenthically on the street. That means for a professional model like Lisa in winter: Bite your teeth together and go to geht´s! The Onygo shooting was a full-time job for our Lisa and she mastered everything with flying colours. What shooting location do you think she’ll find next time?

In street style: casual look with Lisa and shooting partner

Lisa, right in the picture, looks directly into the camera while her partner looks at the floor. Both harmonize well in the picture and the look of the picture looks much cooler. You rocked!

,

Good teamwork is always important in a shooting!

A model is seldom alone in front of the camera. At the Onygo Shooting Lisa got a partner she had to work with. They had to coordinate their posing so that everything in the pictures harmonizes well. But there was also a team behind the scenes to see if the outfit, hair and make-up were right. The outfit also needs to be changed over and over again so that they stay on schedule and do everything on time. Good teamwork within the team is particularly important. Everyone should be concentrated so that everything functions smoothly. During the shooting with Lisa everything went great and the team was thrilled. It’s fun to work like that! Here you can see some results of the shooting for Onygo:

Outdoor Shooting: Different backdrops provide variety

As already mentioned, the shooting took place under the motto “Streetstyle”. Where better than going out and shooting outside at a cool shooting location? Colourful walls and Conatiner in the background make everything appear much looser and stylish. As if they had been photographed by chance in everyday life. We love this look!

Shootings for Social Media Posts: Still a lot of effort!

The pictures from the shooting for Onygo can also be seen on social media channels such as Instagram. But one should not underestimate the effort for such a social media shooting! It’s easier said than done to produce good images on which everyone is right. Even if no classical studio is available, a good photographer, a make-up artist / stylist and of course professional models must be booked.

Pure Coolness: Lisa posing alone in front of the camera

Of course Lisa also stood alone in the center and proved pure coolness. The clothes of Onygo make a big difference, but of course the facial expression has to be 100% right. We think Lisa’s got what it takes!

Lisa’s video showreel

Shortly before Lisa was visiting us at the model agency and of course we shot a little video with her!

First fashion job for Peek & Cloppenburg: Paulina takes off!

You can be proud of our Paulina! She had her last job for Peek & Cloppenburg and more will certainly follow in the future. Like a true professional she rocked on set for the most different fashion brands. Sometimes casual in sport trousers and cap, then again chic in trench coat and blouse: Paulina simply has it all. We are proud to show you some pictures of her last job. Well, what do you think? If you don’t know our Paulina yet, then take a look at the great video of her below. We are absolutely thrilled with her.
Spotlight on Paulina – Good lighting is a must!

Sometimes a setup from the set is overrated! If the set is well lit, that’s half the battle. Not everyone can do that, which is why Peek & Cloppenburg needed a professional. You can create many effects with lights. At this shooting Paulina was illuminated like a spotlight. Thus it appears in the centre and everything outside becomes darker. A cool effect, we think!

In Pink everything is better – A set in a real girl’s dream!

What a girl’s dream! A wall all in pink and wear the coolest clothes. There was certainly nothing wrong with the wall paint on the set. No wonder that there is already a good mood at work.

Not only the girl next door – Paulina can do more!

For those who don’t know Paulina yet: She is 180 cm tall and already moves with her young years like a true professional model. You are not convinced? Watch the video!

Online Editorial: News, Trends and Influencers all day!

What does your job look like?

Start the day, team meeting and editing

Your everyday life consists of the classic office work! With a good coffee or cappuccino you start the day at 9 o’clock in the morning. You have your own workstation and check all e-mails and inquiries first. At about 10 o’clock we meet for a team meeting. Here we will quickly and through the most important tasks of the day. After that, you’ll be fully focused on your work, from agreeing with bloggers’ managements to PR agencies, new imagery that leaves you free in Photoshop, or even different tasks that you do not even count on today! Because as a fashion editor you’re always part of our modeling and advertising agency. So you also take over editorial tasks for our modeling agency, in the field of PR.

Interviews, design, news and public relations

Versatile and varied, our internship as well as vocational training (for office management or dialogue marketing) as a fashion editor. With all your main tasks, a friendly team and constantly new tasks, so that you yourself can grow in the challenges!

The longer your education, the more extensive the expertise that you can acquire. Through our owner-managed agency, you are very close to all topics and learn more than in many other companies. Because with us, a job is not just about the daily work of the same things. You get your own tasks, projects and depending on the duration of the training increasingly more responsibility. In principle, we offer these three forms of training

Internship & trainee: Differences in education

  • 3-month internship for career orientation
  • 6-month internship for career guidance and know-how transfer
  • vocational training in the commercial sector

3-month internship for career orientation

In the three-month internship, you will get to know all important areas at a glance. Then you have an assessment of whether you would make the job as a fashion editor / in fun or not. In the three months you get a task that you are allowed to look after independently, with supervision and guidance. In addition, you will of course be involved in work with our team and get to know a bit of the world of public relations (PR).

6-month internship for career orientation and marketing know-how

Of course, in the six-month internship you will learn a lot more besides the important areas of vocational orientation! The experiences are more. For example, the Berlin Fashion Week takes place every six months, so if you’re lucky, maybe you can visit them for us! Or you organize photo shoots with photographers and models, which are then published in the magazine. You will be commissioned with such larger projects in a six-month internship. You then take care of the various tasks and the various contact persons, all around agencies, designers, models but also bloggers. During the internship, you will not only get to know the superficial aspects of a fashion magazine, but also in-depth work processes in marketing.

Vocational training in the commercial sector: editorial to management

In a vocational training, z.b. as a merchant or as a saleswoman for office communication or dialogue marketing, you will learn everything there is to know about the media world! After the vocational training you have gathered so much know-how that you can gain a foothold in every agency and in just about every magazine. Not only do we teach you how to work editorially, you also get to know a lot of aspects of marketing and especially online marketing, social media and influencer marketing. Who sits in the front row at a fashion show these days? Bloggers! That’s why we no longer just ask ourselves the classic world of printed magazines, but in 2018 have completely focused on the online area. Nevertheless, every six months we publish a best of issue in print, for reordering. Of course you will get to know all aspects of the layout here too, you will be happy to deal with Photoshop but also with InDesign. At the end of your vocational training you have got to know everything and with a little luck and good achievements, you even get a permanent position.

The perfect preparation for a career in the fashion world!

Retouch: From the shoot to the photo of the customer

Preparing for Photo Shoots and Customer Projects: The Team

The first step in any campaign or project is to prepare for the photo shoot. Such a preparation and organization is quite demanding, because it’s about having the right people in the team. Stylist, make-up artist, models, assistant, really much planning! So if you do not just want to focus on retouching, but also a little bit about photography and project management, then you’ve come to the right place! Because what was not considered in production, is difficult to save in the post. By coordinating a good photo team, you already have half the battle.

Photo Studio to Customer Meeting: Planning

In addition to the team, it is also about the organization of a photo studio. Photo studios have very different properties. One is the different lighting conditions. Is there enough daylight or is the hall completely darkened, is there sufficient equipment in the required quality and what is the final price of the studio? Customers plan with a fixed budget, so it’s up to you to get the most out of your costs. If you’ve planned the entire team of make-up artists, stylists, models and so far but have also found the right photo studio, you’re ready to go. Our Creative Art Director will show you what a shooting schedule looks like and what are the key points to consider when preparing for a shoot.

At the end of a planning is still the final agreement with the customer, here everything is approved. All ideas, concepts and dates as well as the location are discussed. If everything is then approved, it can go into the final planning. All team members receive a written confirmation, the photo studio or the location are firmly booked. The stylist or stylist now looks after the matching outfits and accessories. Done! At least step 1 of 3.

Photoshooting: The Production Day

As already mentioned, Retouch and photography are all about the fact that already the basics (photos) are outstanding. This includes a professional and experienced photographer as well as a well-equipped studio or the right equipment for indoor (studio) or outdoor production. In the morning all team members gather, the booked make-up artist starts working on the model and the photographer prepares the studio and the lighting with his assistants. Next, the model gets the clothes of stylists, the customer inspects everything locally. If another product comes into play, it is the last step, the set is now ready and it can be photographed.

Every 15 to 20 minutes the outfit is changed, eg. at an online shop shoot. In a lookbook shoot, z.b. for image recordings, you have a lot more time for each individual piece. At the end you have one or two memory cards filled with hundreds of photos and possibly even additional video recordings.

Viewing and selecting the photos for the customer: recommendation

After the shooting, the material is viewed and evaluated. All photos that get a good rating from the photographer or the assistant will be short-listed. A final final look selects the photos that will be sent to customers for selection. From the customer then comes on the same day or a little later the selection. These final photos, 5 to 30 shots will be edited. Here begins the work in retouching.

High quality photo editing and retouching

Naturalness in photos is a prerequisite for high-quality work and quality. The less post-processing in the final results is recognizable, the more qualitative one has worked. Our agency is all about quality. Quality sets us apart from the work of many others and makes our customers satisfied and happy (the highest good). The fact that more people talk about their brand or increase the sales volume in the inner cities or in the online shop. When retouching you work mainly on the computer. For two, three or four hours you are engrossed in the editing of photos.

Retouching is not just about skin, but also about beauty photography, especially with regard to online shops, it’s all about clean floors and backgrounds. Small dirt caused by shoes or abrasion must be removed. Everything has to be right, colors, light parameters and configurations. You will get to know all this know-how during our internship. The longer you are there, the more you learn to enter into matter.

How does an internship take place in retouching (image processing)?

Depending on whether you are here for three or six months – you will get a deep insight in any case! During the three-month internship for retouching and photography, our main focus is on learning something from all areas and on how professional photographers work for advertising and fashion. If you complete a six-month internship, you will receive your own projects and in-depth training in the organization as well as professional practice in the various software programs that are used today in an agency for photography and videography!

vocational training in Retouch?

If you want to have a professional and well-founded education, then we recommend a vocational training as a clerk or a businessman for office management or dialogue marketing with a focus on photography, work and project management.

In the special field of image post-processing, there is no own vocational training. We offer you then a vocational training as a merchant or businesswoman for office management or dialogue marketing with a focus on photography, art buying and project management. In the three-year training you get very deep insights into the world of photography, marketing and advertising. A very interesting mix for your future career. The training also includes extensive training in the field of commercial skills, from customer management to administration and accounting. With this you will get to know all the important aspects, from the practical photo shoot to travel planning, project management and handling.

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

If you want to become a model then send us your application, we’ll help you get started in the industry and we’ll help you get it going! With career planning and great attention to detail. Our model agency exists since 2015, after only two years we were chosen by the Bravo to the Top 10 recommendation in Germany. We put a lot of effort in the promotion of young talent and look forward to your application.

Plus Size Models and Curvy Models Wanted!

Already after our first Curvy Model Casting in Berlin, at the beginning of the year, we were able to find four new talents! They were already allowed to do the first showrooms.

There is a lot of potential away from high fashion: catalogs, online shops, advertising and much more. Especially Plus Size Models are gradually gaining more market share.

Fashion trend check 2018 – Best accessoires for spring from Versace to Sunglasses

Fashion trends are often great but there are also trends that should only stay on the catwalks. In spring, not only does nature flourish, but the latest trends are also growing and can be seen everywhere. In the spring, the time starts again when the flowers start to bloom, the birds start to chirp and all people can finally go out into warmer weather. It’s the time when we’re starting to put on new outfits Read more

The Fashion Show – Catwalk & Catwalk Tips for Models

You are not a professional on the catwalk yet? Then take a look at our tips for the catwalk! Of excessive importance is an upright posture. You should be able to balance a book on your head. Pull your shoulders back and push your pelvis a little forward. Make sure you do not lean back too much. When you take the first step on the catwalk, you should always be the first to use your ball of the foot. Almost like you want to sneak. This looks a lot more elegant than when you first appear with the hoes.

Run with momentum and character: Find your balance

The important thing is that you put one foot in front of the other. You really should literally take this to heart. Your gait should form a zigzag. Thus, you also get the necessary momentum, which makes your walk only appear characteristic. Your steps should be great, but you should not do a splits. Also always remember to swing your hip. Always move your arms and hands evenly. It should not look like you have two stiff arms.

Your focus should be on the catwalk to a point in front of you

Your look should adapt to the style of your clothes. Try to smile with your eyes and keep your chin always lifted. Keep your head straight and steady. At the end of the catwalk is usually always the rotation. Put your left foot in front and pause for a few very short beats of the music. You should turn your shoulders and feet sideways while your head is still pointing forward and you are looking over your shoulders. After the break, turn your foot in the opposite direction and start to run with the front right foot. Only at the end do you turn your face away from the spectators.

But the most important thing is that you try to get your character involved in your walk. And you should always find yourself very attractive. Because only when you are convinced of yourself, you can convince the audience of you.

  • If you still can not walk well on high shoes, then you will learn it quickly with a little practice. My ultimate tip to keep you from slipping on the catwalk is to lick the soles of your higheels with some lemonade or coke. Your soles start to stick after a short time and you will surely strut over the catwalk.
  • Watch catwalk videos of really good models or visit the fashion shows yourself.
  • Let your friends film while running and posing. You can then watch the videos, and you’ll see for yourself what else you need to fix on yourself.
  • It does not matter if you stumble but you should get up dignified and keep going. Even in such stressful and embarrassing situations, you should stay professional and self-confident.
    Try to smile with your eyes (Smize: Smile with your eyes).

Winter Couple Shooting: Fabian and Marie for Deichmann x Fila

This time 2 of our models were booked for the same job! Fabian and Marie were in front of the camera for Deichmann and a visit to the Christmas market was also included. Of course the visit was not for fun, but actually the shooting location. Just a few days after the shooting you could already see the first results on Instagram. Social media is also a big topic for Deichmann, which is why we shoot regularly. Who of our models will be shooting for the fashion brand next time? We’ll stay in a state of stress!

Outdoor Shooting: Winterly mood with warm clothes

As soon as the styling was finished, after a few shots in a warm set, we went on to the next shooting location: The Christmas Market! Where else is the winter atmosphere so good between mulled wine and roasted almonds? With a beautiful backdrop like shining stars and chains of lights, you immediately get back a little Christmas magic and the pictures look much more inviting. Marie and Fabian definitely liked the idea and were really looking forward to the shooting.

Acting is part of being a model!

Even if Fabian and Marie are not a real couple in real life, they play it in front of the camera. Of course, this also belongs to modeling! For this reason it is not only important for a model to look good on the picture, but also to have the talent to put himself in different situations. We think they did a great job, even though the weather was cold.

Warm up inside and continue!

The shooting started on a warm set before it went on into the cold. Have you noticed that not only Marie’s style changes in the pictures, but also her hair? Ideally, as different pictures as possible should be created at the end of the shooting!

One shoot – Multiple outfits: Fast outfit changes like real professionals

As at every shooting there were outfit changes again where Fabian and Marie had to change different shoes, jackets and sweaters. They could not be stopped by the cold and in an emergency there is always a spontaneous visit to the café around the corner!


Marie takes you behind the scenes!

If you want a closer look behind the scenes of a little shooting, you can see Marie here. She took you for a day and gives you exciting insights. Take a look, it’s worth it!

Flower Power – Johanna V. for the British brand Flavr!

Johanna V. is one of our experienced models, who was already able to do some great jobs! There are always exciting brands here <! – more ->. The last time it was for the British brand Flavr, which turned every phone into a beautiful accessory. Nowadays, you can hardly leave the house without having your smartphone with you. Of course the protection should not be missing. But Flavr is also known for his great flower prints on their cases – that brings the spring back! Johanna V. herself was enthusiastic about the many colorful mobile phone covers. What a great prerequisite for a shoot!

The hours before the job: Preparing for the shoot with Flavr

Shooting is not the same shoot, because almost no job is like the other. Some are more elaborate, with a large set, extra make-up artists, stylists and photographic assistants. The others are smaller, where you do not need an extra set and the model can make itself ready. What exactly does that mean? The focus of such shootings is more on presenting the products in everyday life and leaving the models as natural as possible. Johanna V. had a requirement how she should get to the job. It was said she needed a subtle make-up and freshly washed hair. In addition a few own outfits to change, so that a little variety in the pictures comes. What was particularly important for the shoot, were her fingernails, as they would of course be in focus with the phone cases. Well-groomed hands for such a job are the nuts and bolts!

Flower Power! Johanna V. at the social media shoot for Flavr

For the British brand Flavr channels like Instagram are obviously very important. If you look at her profile, you can see that her feed is completely true to her phone case full of flower power. One might think that spring is already very close to us!

Besonderes Posing beim Job? Alltagssitautionen gewünscht!

Das Posing bei dem Job für Flavr war natürlich relativ vorgegeben. Da das Produkt im Mittelpunkt stehen soll, spielte man Alltagssituation mit dem Handy in der schönen Flavr Hülle nach. Selfies, Telefonate oder SMS schreiben. Es war wichtig alles so authenthisch wie möglich darzustellen.

So einfach kann Posing sein: Authentisch ein Selfie machen!

Hier noch ein Beispiel wie ein Posing für das Produkt aussehen kann. Auch wenn es für Johanna V. ein kleinerer Job war, war sie von Anfang bis Ende motiviert. Ob es wohl auch an den bunten Handyhüllen lag?
