International Face – First Stop: Paris

Everyone wants her. Whether it’s the biggest agencies in Milan, Paris or even NYC, everyone wants to sign our Lara and work with her. For Lara it goes end of March this year the first time to Paris to the selected partner agency. Here she spends her spring break and is for the first time in a model shared apartment where she lives with other international models and goes to shootings during the day. Afterwards she meets many international, high fashion clients and is able to make a name for herself on the catwalks in Paris. With all the hustle and bustle you might think it quickly becomes too much, but Lara convinces with her curiosity and her drive

Lara’s path to becoming a model – history, goals and plans

At just 15 years old, Lara came to one of our castings. Since her graduation and schooling is our top priority, we initially only booked her with occasional test shoots and talked to our partner agencies in the background. These are all convinced and are really tearing around our girl. No wonder, with 1.80 meters and her face nothing stands in the way of a great career in the industry. From now on, it is important to use the vacations she has until her graduation as well as possible, so that she is directly known by customers at the age of 18. There are big goals in the pipeline for Lara, including New York. But until that happens, we continue to look forward to building and spending time with loved ones.

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

Becoming a Model and Castings: News

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

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

Becoming a Model: Requirements in Los Angeles

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

For female models, the ideal case

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

For men models is the ideal case:

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

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

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

There are 3 ways to become a model.

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

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

Scouting on the street or instagram

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

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

You got messaged on Instagram?

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

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

Online application with Polaroids

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

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

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

Open Model Agency Casting

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

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

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

Model Castings: Dates in LA

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

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

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

Who are we? CM: The Model Agency

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Welcome to the City of Angels

Model Agency Los Angeles

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

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

International Modeling: Chand from Stockholm visits Germany / Shooting Time

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

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

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

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

Placement – Model agencies and jobs worldwide

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

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

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

On Stay – Work abroad for two to three months

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

On Stay Expiry – How you live during your stay

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

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

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

Yulffi: Bangkok, Munich, Cologne, Madrid to Tokyo

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

Garantuee Contract – Guaranteed income and great jobs

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

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

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

How much does a successful model earn anyway?

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

Top Videos from Burberry – Between Trench Coat and Innovation

Burberry – The name Burberry immediately brings to mind the famous beige trench coat or scarf in the familiar check pattern. This is both the trademark and unique selling point of the British luxury company, making it one of the most recognizable companies in the world. In addition to English elegance, the label repeatedly presents itself with cool and unusual designs and is a source of excitement for celebrities such as Rihanna, Kate Moss and even the British Royals.

Tense story between highs and lows

The success story of the British company began in 1856 when the merchant Thomas Burberry founded his first textile shop, named after his surname, in Basingstoke, England. Burberry first attracted a lot of attention in 1880 when he developed a gabardine fabric that was at once robust, waterproof and breathable. He patented it and produced men’s capes which he sold on a large scale. Thus, in 1891, Thomas added another shop in the London district of Haymarket, which was the former flagship store. The business grew and grew, in 1920 the first stock exchange listing already took place. Four years later, the check pattern, which is still known worldwide today, was created. Initially, it was only used for the lining of jackets or the well-known trench coat and was worn by the British military during World War I. After Thomas Burberry’s death in 1924, his sons took over the business and expanded further into the USA, where they brought the brand to style icons like Audrey Hepburn. The assortment continued to grow, bags, accessories or fragrances were added. Unfortunately, however, after the sons sold the company in 1955, the business started to falter and experienced a small loss of image. From 2001 to 2018, Christopher Bailey took over the design department of Burberry and brought the company out of its trough – he completely turned the company around and made Burberry fashionable again. Especially today with Riccardo Tisco, Burberry is experiencing a real hype again, the Italian made sure that the British house had maximum sales with his street styles and Burberry has again reached the top of the fashion world.

You can find more about Burberry here.

Fashion shows between live music and technology

The fashion shows of the British fashion company Burberry are characterized primarily by technical features or functions, as well as unique live performances by well-known artists and exclusive guests of the fashion world. For example, Burberry was the first company to try out a so-called “See Now, Buy Now” function, offering customers the chance to order products directly in the live stream of the fashion show. Three of the most interesting fashion shows can be seen here.

Unique Rainbow fashion show in London

With his last show for Burberry, former chief designer Christopher Bailey once again demonstrated his enormous talent and at the same time set a huge signal for more tolerance and acceptance. He dedicated the collection and the show to three of the largest organizations fighting for LGBTQ rights worldwide. The venue was a huge hall in London, where the audience sat around the catwalk like at a football match. Everything was dark, just a few lamps swayed across the middle of the catwalk. The collection was characterized by the typical elegance of Burberry, as well as elements of the rainbow flag. At the end of the fashion show, spotlights formed a construct of rainbow colours, through which the models, first and foremost Cara Delevigne in a colourful fur coat, walked to the song “Don’t Leave Me This Way” by The Communards. The show was a great success and the audience was visibly enthusiastic.

“Fashion meets Technology” – Revolutionary Fashion Show

The Burberry Spring/Summer fashion show in London was a very special and revolutionary fashion show. Burberrry gave fashion fans who didn’t have a ticket for the show the exclusive chance to preview the collection on the company’s Snapchat account the day before. The show itself was classically spectacular, typical for Burberry – the British singer Alison Moyet sang live during the show. The performance was simultaneously recorded for Burberry’s own Apple Music Channel – making the British the first to have their own channel on the platform. The audience, cast with Kate Moss, Cara Delevinge, Sienna Miller or Anna Wintour visibly enjoyed the great show.

“Back to the past” – Tisci show from memories of his past

Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2020 fashion show took place in a gigantic hall in London, supported by a spectacular and beautiful musical performance by musician Arca and pianist duo Katja and Marielle Labèque. With this show, the new chief designer Riccardo Tisci gives an insight into his memories and shows, especially with the collection, which inspirations he took from his past. Important people, important music or moments played a big and decisive role in his life that made him the person he is today. The top-class fashion audience could definitely feel his vibe and the fashion world was thrilled.

Successful and exploitative campaigns of the traditional house

The British fashion brand Burberry is known for its long and special advertising films. Behind all their campaigns there is always a message, or rather the idea to bring a significant story of the company to the viewer. This is how the company manages to inspire millions of viewers. Three of Burberry’s most interesting campaigns include the famous short film “The Tale of Thomas Burberry”, “From London with Love” and the Christmas campaign “What is Love?

A unique short film about Burberry founder Thomas Burberry

The Tale of Thomas Burberry was a Christmas campaign by the British company and was produced to depict and celebrate the extraordinary life of the founder Thomas Burberry. The clip stars the well-known actors Sienna Miller, Lily James, Domhnall Gleeson and Dominic West, whose roles present the life of the pioneer in an exciting way. The drama of his life in the 20th century with its highs and lows and the development of his company is shown. The campaign was primarily produced to draw attention to the spirit Thomas Burberry, who is also still present in the company.

From London with Love – Campaign with Beckham-Shoot Romeo Beckham

The campaign “From London with Love” is one of the most watched and best known commercials of the luxury brand Burberry so far. Inspiration of this video is the so-called golden age of cinematic musicals. The story of this play is the tragic love of a young couple during a theatrical setback in London. In the leading role of the campaign is, among others, Romeo Beckham, the second youngest son of the British mega stars David and Victoria Beckham, who is not here not for the first time in front of the camera for Burberry, but has already decorated several campaigns of the fashion house. This campaign embodies a special spirit of the company and is absolutely worth seeing.

What is Love? – Campaign to celebrate love

This special Christmas campaign from Burberry aims to spread and showcase the love of the holidays. In the video you can see a variety of people of different ages and looks. From very young children to senior citizens, from classically beautiful people to extraordinary looking people. The campaign celebrates the diversity of people and the boundless love that takes place beyond looks etc. Burberry definitely got a great message out with the campaign and certainly reached a lot of people.

Cara Delevinge, Lily James and Gigi Hadid love Burberry

The British luxury label and traditional house Burberry stands for absolute elegance and innovation at the same time. Celebrities like Cara Delevinge, Lily James or Gigi Hadid are big fans on the one hand, but also advertising faces of the labels. In creative campaigns, they present the spirit of the brand in an optimal way and inspire fans worldwide.

Cara Delevinge loves her hometown London

The campaign for Burberry’s new women’s fragrance “Her” features British supermodel Cara Delevigne in the leading role, who, as a born Londoner, embodies like no other the stylish and energetic spirit of the fragrance, which is dedicated to the city of London. In the campaign, the model can be seen in cool Polaroid shots in her hometown London, singing lines like “Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner, That I love London so, Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner, That I think of her wherever I go The campaign really makes you feel the vibe of the city and the scent!

Superstar Lily James as elegant brand ambassador for perfume

Lily James is a well-known British actress (Cinderella, Mama Mia) and is also the advertising face of the current campaign for the iconic women’s fragrance “My Burberry”. The 31-year-old, dressed in Burberry, is shown lying on a couch in various poses against a typical backdrop of houses in the West of London. This is, by the way, the first campaign to take place under the artistic direction of the new chief designer Riccardo Tisci. The elegance and cool chic that the fragrance represents are perfectly staged and presented in this campaign video.

Gigi Hadid for the new interpretation of the Burberry monogram

New Chief Designer Riccardo Tisco is responsible for a whole new interpretation of the Burberry monogram. It includes the two initials T and B, for Thomas Burberry and is already featured on several pieces of the new collections. To present this reinterpretation, Burberry grabbed the famous supermodel Gigi Hadid for her campaign, in which she presents both the women’s and men’s collections in a cool way in different cuts. The collection has many fans, but also opponents who would rather see Burberry’s traditional design. However, the new one is innovative and Tisci brings a new, younger clientele to the company.

Vivienne Westwood or London in LA – cool collaborations

Burberry is a brand that, compared to other high-fashion brands, does not rely so much on collaborations with other brands. Nevertheless, the label presented a very successful brand collaboration last year with the punk legend Vivienne Westwood. On the other hand, Burberry is very innovative and always creative when it comes to presenting its fashion – for example at an event in Los Angeles, where it brought the brand’s London vibe to the USA.

London in Los Angeles, California – James Cordon and the Beckhams are thrilled

This video does not show a typical brand collaboration, but a very special project of the British fashion company Burberry, which presented an exclusive capsule collection in the Californian dream city Los Angeles. Place of the event was the famous Griffith Observatory, high above the hills of LA. Surprise appearances by the famous English soldiers, dressed in red gear and huge black headgear, as well as a runway debut by “The Late Late Show” presenter James Cordon made this event extraordinary. There was also a small English garden in the middle of the Hollywood Hills, where British singers such as Clare Maguire, George Ezra or Tom Odell performed. Also the guests were top-class – many of the British guests like Anna Wintour, Cara Delevinge, Elton John, Rose Byrne or the Beckhams enjoyed this evening very much and could share a little bit of home style in the middle of the Californian metropolis.

Traditional house and punk icon – Unique collection

Two British fashion houses that could not be more different – Burberry, the elegant and luxurious fashion house with a long tradition and Vivienne Westwood, the eccentric fashion designer who is considered the queen of punk. The collection is inspired by Westwood’s iconic designs, with the classic double-breasted coat from the Fall/Winter 1992 collection or the mini kilt from the Anglomania 1993 collection. The aim of the collaboration is to celebrate the British style, with its punk approaches, but also the famous check pattern by Burberry. Riccardo Tisci has always been a big fan of fashion icon Vivienne Westwood and with his start at Burberry he saw the perfect opportunity to connect and work with her.

Christopher Bailey & Riccardo Tisci: Interesting Interviews

The two designers Christopher Bailey and Riccardo Tisci are both revolutionaries at Burberry. Bailey, who brought the company out of a crisis and Tisci, who is currently taking Burberry to a whole new level with his street styles. In two videos the two can be seen in short but exciting interviews.

Design legend Christopher Bailey about the famous trench coat

As iconic as Burberry’s famous trench coat is the designer Christopher Bailey, who brought the brand out of a low in the early 2000s and made it what it is today. For over 15 years he revolutionised the style of the house in his own way and had a huge success in the process. One thing that always remained the same, however, is the legendary trench coat, which has been in the range since the company started in 1856 and probably always will be. With Mr. Porter’s fashion magazine, the Briton spoke about the trench coat and why it is an absolute must-have in every wardrobe.

Elevator interview at Burberry Head Office – Riccardo Tisci and Models

Inspired by the well-known elevator pitch method, Burberry filmed an interview format for its YouTube channel in which all employees who enter the elevator are interviewed about Burberry and the show. Among others, chief designer Riccardo Tisci steps into the elevator and is interviewed about the show. However, he remains mysterious and does not reveal too much. Models of the show are also in the elevator and you might get first ideas how the show could look like. With this format Burberry definitely manages to build up tension before the fashion show and with this unique idea also provides entertainment.

Giorgio Armani – Watches, Perfume & Sportswear EA7

Giorgio Armani – A world-famous name behind which stands a man who has revolutionized the fashion world. He has taken elegance and classicism to a new level. Milan, the city of fashion, has become what it is today through his works. Starting with shop window decoration, soon half of Hollywood and numerous actors were dressed in their film sets. In the same way Armani made it into the sports sector and dressed the Italian team for the Olympic Games. In every imaginable field the brand has tried out and set high records. Whether make-up, fragrances, watches or (sports) fashion. Designs by Armani are true classics! In this article you will find out everything from the creation to the different sales areas.

History and facts about Giorgio Armani

Giorgio Armani was born in 1934 in Piacenza, Italy. He began to study medicine, but broke off his studies in the 3rd year of his apprenticeship because he realized that this was not his vocation. Together with his then life partner Sergio Galeotti he developed his career in the fashion industry. First as a window dresser, then as a designer in the Nino Cerrutti fashion house. While Armani designe, Galeotti sold his unique pieces to several department stores, which led to the start of his own business in 1975.

His career began at the age of 40 and after only 5 years he had his first breakthrough. At the beginning of the 1980s he equipped various Hollywood celebrities. In 1982 he was the first fashion designer after Christian Dior to be featured on the cover of Time Magazine and he launched his first perfume.

In addition to elegant clothing, Armani has also created sportswear, flight attendant uniforms for Alitalia, costumes and even food for special occasions. He set the trend in the 70s with bomber jackets, which still have cult status today. He has also ensured that Milan maintains its current status as a fashion city and has created revolting fashion shows with a mini-miI to avoid anorexic trends in the fashion industry.

Despite all his success, Giorgio Armani is a perfectionist who is very reflective and self-critical of his career and his shows. He calls himself a frustrating actor, producer and director of life, because by dressing several actors he discovered his love for film and would have loved to try himself out.

In the following video you can see his attitude towards life in relation to one of the numerous shows in Paris.

  • 1934 born in Piacenza, Italy
  • began to study medicine
  • dropout in the 3rd year of study
  • Then he was a window dresser, later a designer
  • 1975 founded “Armani” with the help of life partner Sergio Galeotti
  • Early 80s: Breakthrough
  • Elegant clothing, sportswear (EA7), flight attendant uniforms and even food he appropriated
  • Revolution: minimum BMI
  • Enhanced reputation of Milan through Armani

Perfume – Si, Aqua di Gio & She

Giorgio Armani’s perfumes are based on a very simple concept: in close collaboration with the most talented noses in the world, fragrances full of elegance and refinement are composed from the most precious ingredients. Some of them are inspired by the elements of nature, or they embody in perfection the perennial theme of seduction such as ‘Homage to the femininity of today’s woman’. The art of Giorgio Armani’s haute parfumerie is particularly evident in the luxurious, unique Armani Privé fragrance collections. They are particularly close to his heart because they best express his couturier’s art.

Si – classic perfumes

The naming of the perfume was very well thought out. Si means “yes” in Italian and it is exactly this open-minded, positive attitude that Armani wants to convey. A very feminine fragrance combination with a floral note of amber and patchouli. This perfume is by no means a fragrance for older ladies, but timeless and intended for the unforgettable appearance in everyday life. A fragrance that stays in your head. You can recognize Armani’s craftsmanship by the stylish and glamorous finish of the bottle, as well as the fragrance itself. Italian flair for a good price.

Here you can find the fragrances sorted by year of release:

  • Si Eau de Parfum (2013)
  • Si Intense (2014)
  • Si Eau de Toilette (2015)
  • Si Intense Limited Edition Night Light (2106)
  • Si Rose Signature (2016)
  • Si Le Parfum (2016)
  • Si Passione (2018)
  • Si Passione Limited Edition (2018)
  • Si Fiori (2019)

“Although Giorgio Armani’s women’s fragrance Si Fiori evolves into a sweet and feminine scent, the heart note is beautifully lightened. But the olfactory combination of patchouli, rose and oakmoss keeps the sweetness in check”.

Aqua di Gio

The perfume “Aqua di Gio” or the version for women “Aqua di Gioia” has been on the market for 25 years. 65% of those interviewed consider the smell to be good, while 30% consider it neutral. It is a fragrance that goes with everything. Whether it’s a rendezvous, an upscale opera visit or open-air concerts. The fragrance marketed by L’Oréal has a naturally delicate scent for the ladies. It should reflect untouched nature and landscapes. The refinement of mint and the interplay of jasmine blossom and cedar wood gives it that irresistible note.

The essence for men should again emphasize freedom of the elements water and wind. To achieve this, citrus fragrances are used in combination with delicate blossoms and spicy aromas such as oakmoss, amber, rosemary or musk. This gives the perfume a maritime masculine character, but it doesn’t sting too much in the nose. Nevertheless, the main components are fruity essences such as mandarin orange and bergamot.

EA7: The elegant sports brand

What is behind EA7? This sports brand has been on the market since 2004. In the beginning it was just an exclusive sports collection, but today it is a big hit! By mixing elegance and sportiness, Armani created a brand suitable for everyday use that stands out for its charm. 

How did it get that name? Giorgio Armani is an incredible fan of football. He really loves the club AC Milan and his close friend and favourite player Andrij Shevchenko wears the number 7, which gave him the inspiration for the name. Marketing has also been strategically invested in the sports world. For the Olympics and Paralymic Games, the complete wardrobe for the Italian team was designed.

Make-Up & Beauty – The Luminous Silk Foundation,

Armani has established itself in every area of fashion. For years they have also been a top brand in make-up and beauty. With their liquid foundation, the Luminous Silk Foundation, they won the InStyle’s Best Beauty Awards for 9 years in a row. In addition to the 40 shades for all skin types, the oil-free foundation provides a fresh and pleasant hold for the whole day. A light foundation with medium coverage for a natural look.

  • Light and comfortable with perfect grip
  • Fresh and perfect shine in the twinkling of an eye
  • 40 shades for all skin types and skin tones

“The Luminous Silk Foundation, the cult foundation from Armani Beauty, gives the skin perfect shine and a radiant complexion for more natural beauty.”

With its micro-fil technology, the foundation promises to combine highly effective pigments with a weightless texture, which is why it is celebrated by many celebrities and renowned make-up artists. Thanks to its low density, the complexion appears seamless and the skin radiant. The texture of the soft charmeuse silk inspired manufacturers to enhance and unify the Luminous Silk Foundation, so that the flawless finish with transparent to medium coverage is long-lasting.

Watches – Smartwatch, Armani Exchange & Ceramica Watch

Since 2004 Armani offers wristwatches for ladies and men. With precise accuracy and robust material the watches are worked on.  The cheapest product for “Armani watches” currently costs about 140 Euros, while the average price is about 235 Euros. Mostly the watches look very classic and elegant, which is why bright colours are not used. Silver and black are the standard colours, but in the meantime the trend colours rose gold and dark blue are becoming more and more common. Armani gives the license for the watches to Fossil and takes care of design, marketing and distribution itself

Milan Fashion Week – From crazy Gucci Show to Gigi Hadid with Puppy

The designers of the official new collections, are often not only by art or z.b. Inspire music, but have their own muses. These are nowadays mainly models or stars and starlets. Not only models, but also life styles are a topic in fashion. Designers like Gucci want to use their fashion to express, transform, improve and sometimes highlight their positive sides or critique negative ones.

Every year, designers have to come up with new trends. To attract attention, they try to show the craziest things and most extraordinary shows. To make an impression, or to stay in mind, Creative Director of Gucci has come up with something new this year. Alessandro Michéle and his team showed an extraordinary fashion show in a room reminiscent of a hospital operating room. The Models that presented the collection were made up in various ways. Some of the models got a drawn monobrow and others walked down the catwalk with their own heads under their arms. From Models with horns to little dragons on their arms, Gucci has shown a mix of luxury fashion and a little freak show in his collection. The team tried to make the models look out of this world and somehow like fairytale creatures, but with a precision and a lot of effort to get a look that it looks almost real. Their message to show different and diverse looks, that are somehow freakish, defenitly catched our attention. Check the video from the show yourself.

The Tod’s brand is mostly known for making leather shoes, handbags and other accessories. This year they have shown their new collection at the Milan Fashion Week.

These are beautiful dresses that you can wear season after season and look stunning but hidden and not intrusive.

Jeremy Scott or Moschino? Colorful Fashion: Faux Fur and Alien Looks

Moschino and Jeremy Scott go well together, the designer has sportswear and streetstyle covered in his own brand, and Moschino includes chic and sleek women’s clothing.

The cuts, presentation and idea behind the collections did not look alike except for the colors: bright and expressive pink, blue or neon colors could be seen. Some models on the Moschino catwalk had pink and blue colored skin.Like strange aliens but with the famous “Jacky Kennedy 50ties Look” hairstyles.

Model measurements for catwalks and fashion shows

Fashion is always something special. Fashion lives on Being special! New fashion collections are regularly released by designers worldwide, every season. Not only major international fashion designers and retail chains are working. Even small fashion labels have to constantly present new designs and styles to their customers to gain their attention. So designers and fashion have to reinvent themselves time after time to stay interesting for consumers.

Shows in Milan, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and London

At the Fashion Weeks the new masterpieces are regularly presented. In Milan, New York, Paris, Hong Kong and London. In spring, summer, autumn and winter, people are always looking for new looks and trends. Almost all designers have one thing in common, they tailor their collections for tall, slender people as mentioned in every post to similar topics. The clothes are more elegant, fabrics unfold their full effect, everything looks more exclusive and high quality! Delicate figures make clothes and their possible price more expensive. Even if not all fashion brands work in this scheme, it’s the majority of the industry.

Dimensions for fashion show

Fashion shows and fashion presentations are subject to an unwritten standard. For female models, a dress size of 34 (maximum 34/36) with a height of 177-180 (176-181) cm is considered ideal at the beginning of the career. Your hip should be under 91cm. Men’s models usually have a clothing size of 48 (max 50/52) with a height of 185-192 cm. A tip here for men’s models: At the beginning of the career you should pay attention as a male model on a younger look. If you look too masculine in your early years as a model, you’ll quickly get a chance on jobs in the fashion industry and on casting. That’s why you should always go to Castings with a shaved beard as a male model in the first years.

Measure yourself!

These are the measurements points for your first modeling agency application. Take care, that you are totally honest. More about: Take your own measurements for agencies, castings and jobs.
