Fashion and Modeling

1940's Article
The trade of the fashion model was very different in the Forties - it was an era in which a model was just as likely to book a commercial artist as she would a photographer:


"Most models receive five dollars an hour for posing, and a few get seven fifty or ten dollars an hour...Models like Meg Mundy or Helen Bennett who rarely earn less than $150.00 a week are in the upper brackets and are the sort of girls that the average male would pass without a second glance..."
"Many of the models are bitter, unhappy girls inside. They soon grow disillusioned with their dream of modeling as a gateway to theatrical glory; they learn that their height is against them."

Feature model is a compact representation of all the products




Feature model is a compact representation of all the products. Feature models are visually represented by means of feature diagrams. Feature models are widely used during the whole product line development process. This incorporates environmental effects on techniques through hybrid classical approaches, and the modeling of dynamics among others .




Fashion and Model

 A model is a person with a role either to promote, display or advertise commercial products or to serve as a visual aide for people creating works of art. Modeling  is considered to be different from other types of public performance, such as acting or dancing. Types of modeling include fashion, glamour, fitness, and bikini, fine art, body-part and commercial print models. Models are featured in a variety of media formats including books, magazines, films, newspapers, and TV.

A Model
A Model- is a person with a role either to promote, display or advertise commercial products or to serve as a visual aid for people who are creating works of art.Modeling is considered to be different from other types of public performance such as acting or dancing. Run way models showcase clothes from fashion designers and consumers. They are also called live models and self employed. The demands for runway models include certain height and weight requirements. During runway shows, models have to constantly change clothes and makeup. The models walk, turn and stand in order to demonstrate the garments key features. Models also go to interviews presenting the absolute requirement for portfolio. The more the experience a model has, the more likely she is to be hired for a fashion show. A runway model can also work in other areas such as department store fashion shows, and the most successful models create their own product lines or go into acting.


Fashion wraps: Coming out of the closet   

Be it a hobby or a passion, finding one's own identity to stand out in the crowd has become crucial to finding one's individuality. Fashion connoisseurs also emphasise the need to look unique. Fast fashion can interfere with the idea of exclusivity. International apparel brands and retail groups are fast churning out designs, and with rising middle class income, customers are buying apparel brands that were once considered a treat for the rich. This is forcing exclusivity out. Individuality and exclusivity are tough to attain in today's ever-changing dynamic market. The shirt you bought, believing it to be exclusive, might be on a display in countless stores and worn by multiple people at the same time.

From accessories, with loveAs people begin to care more and more about appearance and exclusivity, the world of fashion has become one of the most evolving fields. Designers are not designing for a particular market anymore. What's popular in the US or Europe is popular in Asia and vice versa. With the globalisation of fashion, apparel brands are designing clothes so that a new design is not constrained to a particular culture, region or society.
Accessories have played a major part in imparting a novel identity to apparel brands. Consequently, brands that were wary of dabbling in any segment other than clothing are now enthusiastically launching apparel accessories to charm customers. The task at hand for the contemporary apparel industry is to embrace everything that involves fashion.
Wrapping the worldWhile uniformity is not a flaw, wearing similar clothes at the same event can leave one red-faced. If only one of them had thought of accessorising! At a time when cultural designs are freely crossing borders, the apparel world has become more open to experiments. The biggest testimonies to this cultural cross-culture are the dupatta, stole and scarf. Carving out their own pathway, these accessories have emerged as fashion must-haves across the world. Traditionally worn by women in India, Bangladesh, Pakistan and in other nations in the region, these long scarves have successfully found a place in everyone's closet.
Overlooking the traditional role assigned to scarves in female attire, designers all over the world are using these accessories to perk up men's fashion as well...

Fashion is a popular style

Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture. Fashion is a distinctive and often habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. In   a typical fashion show, models walk the catwalk dressed in the clothing created by the designer. Occasionally, fashion shows take the form of installations, where the models are static, standing or sitting in a constructed environment. The order in which each model walks out wearing a specific outfit is usually planned in accordance to the statement that the designer wants to make about his or her collection. It is then up to the audience to not only try to understand what the designer is trying to say by the way the collection is being presented, but to also visually deconstruct each outfit and try to appreciate the detail and craftsmanship of every single piece. A wide range of contemporary designers tend to produce their shows as theatrical productions with elaborate sets and added elements such as live music or a variety of technological components like holograms, for example. It is the prevailing styles in behavior and the newest creations of textile designers. Fashion show events strive to enrich lives by integrating fashion as a strong medium platform to better the lifestyle and business environment in the respective region and its designers.

Remember fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life“because anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture.

THE SECRET BEHIND SUCCESSFUL MODELING
In the 1960 the modeling word was just starting to establish modeling agencies. In Europe, most models only worked in one market due to the odd labor laws regarding modeling in different countries and also due to its more organized approach to modeling which innovated the modeling industry. It was during this time models become household names. A model is an actor without a voice. The secret to modeling is not being a perfectionist. What one needs is a face that people can identify in second. You have to be given what's needed by nature, and what's needed is to bring something new. The same way Women can work a camera with ease often men can also work as well, for both require the same commitment to purposefully achieve one the best in modeling industry. To see what they look like, women look at mirror to look like what they see, women read magazine.

FASHION
The beauty of a woman is not viewed from the clothes she wears. The beauty of woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows. It only grows with passing years. When fashion fades, style remains internal. It’s a new era in fashion where there are no rules. It’s all about the individual/or personal style, wearing high-end, low-end, classic labels, and up- and- coming designers all combined together, the most important thing to remember is that you can wear very clothes and the greatest shoes, but the shining spirit inside you remains central. That is what actualizes your true nature and keeps you going like you are ready to rock the world. Don’t be so much into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but accept what you are, what you want to express to the world through the way you dress and the way you live. Fashion is not found in the sky or in the street. It has to do with ideas, the way we love and practice what is happening in the industry. I have always believed that fashion was not only to make women more beautiful but also to reassure them, give them confidence and improve their self-assertiveness. Whoever said that money can’t buy happiness simply didn't know where to go shopping uniqueness and different is the next generation of beautiful designs. Design is a constant challenge to balance comfort. The practical with the desirable fashion  is so close in revealing a person’s inner feelings and everybody seems to hate the lay claiming to vanity thereby push  it way.  

FASHION
Most people pay attention to fashion in small doses which is a very 
healthy way to approach it. They make sure wardrobes are in line with 
the seasons and even indulge in a trend or two each season. There are 
a few reasons why fashion is still relevant; It shows your thinking is 
modern and flexible fashion has escapist qualities to help you deal 
with the pressures of the world [for example: your country may be at 
war, but you can escape by dressing in the season?s fluffy ruffles 
that make you look like you don?t really care in the world] everything 
you put on sends a message. Fashion has almost nothing to do with good 
taste. It is a force that is beyond such practical consideration. The 
clothes that are presented at the fashion shows are often 
exaggerations of a theme. Some designers move to great lengths to 
present extravagant looks that no one in their right mind would wear 
on the street. These collections are part of marketing [to grab media 
and consumers interest in a designer line] and partly for artistic 
expression. By the time they reach the stores, most looks are edited 
by buyers to be saleable, fashion is a general term for a popular 
style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, 
makeup, body piercing. Fashion is about aesthetics, theater and 
meaning not merely comfort but argues Eugene. Fashion helps us to show 
or depict our personality in form of visuals information in the way we 
choose clothes we put on. Fashion is getting tossed around easily in 
each day we enter the market. We think we know what fashion is?but do 
we?


FASHION
Fashion is not something that ONLY exists in dresses. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, it has to do with ideas, the way we live and the current happenings. Women have always been the strong ones of the world. The men are always seeking from women a little pillow to put their heads down on. The most courageous act in Fashion is to think for yourself and developed a positive attitude. Aloud fashion fades, only style remains the same, be sure what you want and be sure about yourself. Fashion is not just beauty; it’s about good attitude and self-confidence. You have to believe in yourself and be strong. Fashion is very important. It is life-enhancing and, like everything that gives pleasure, it is worth doing well, every generation laughs at the old fashions but follows religiously the new. There are tons of people who are late to trends by nature and adopt a trend after it’s no longer in fashion. They exist in mutual funds. They exist in clothes. They exist in cars. They exist in lifestyles, i don’t look so closely at women’s fashion, but from the 20th century on when people have had the freedom to express themselves and their individualities, fashion is one of the most fundamental ways in which they do this, men and women are equally able to express themselves. Fashion is a tool… to compete in life outside the home. People like you better, without knowing why, because people always react well to a person they like the looks of, fashion is a social mediator, the covenant and the result of a consensus of a large group of people.


HOW TO SUCCESS FASHION DESIGNER

All fashion begins with a creative eye and artistic talent. From start to finish it is the artistic talent and expression that brings raw materials into becoming a beautiful finished product. For designers one of the most crucial skills to possess is strong drawing skills. A designer must be able to take a concept and get it down on paper. When designing fashion it is imperative for designers to be able to come up with a basic drawing and then be able to follow through with the detail. It is often the detail that makes a product unique so this skill cannot be overlooked even if the designer beats the competition in visualizing and drawing. Design involves a good sense of texture, color, and fabric in order to make it unique and desirable. It is these differences that make a design stand out. Designing footwear, clothing, and accessories takes a good deal of collaboration with other members of the team and requires strong people skills in order to get points across and be able to encourage a team to work well together. Many people go into creating new designs and keeping the company moving in the right direction. A strong sense of collaboration and comradelier between departments is what keeps the creativity moving which also contributes to the overall success of the company. Keeping up with the fashion world is essential in order to better understand what other designers are doing and what current customers are buying. Successful fashion designers have a wide array of skills, including drawing, an eye for color and texture, an ability to visualize concepts in three dimensions, and the mechanical skills involved in sewing and cutting all types, get excellent sewing tuition if you haven't already learned this skill well. Being able to sew difficult fabric under challenging situations will stand you in excellent stead throughout your career but you need to work at it - it's a skill that doesn't come easily to many people. Learn from existing designers, not just who they are, but their backgrounds, their signature style, the learning that they undertook, where they studied. Knowing this will help you to be a better designer yourself, as you can borrow and build on their ideas.
