sinneres: well, why should I go to japan on a contract with a agency and not work? I never said I didn't want to work, I'm just suprised that they would pay 10.000 and not put it on my accaunt, the agencies everywhere else let the models pay for every cent.

model_mom: I was 13 when I went alone to Milan for 10 dais I don't speak italian. I guess my parents just knew me well enough to trust me, I never got in any trouble, didn't go to the parties, never tried to seem lost, only asked for directions in a crowded place etc. and the agency looked after me and put me in a model appartment where there was a guard in the lobby and he was supposed to check on me, see if I came in late or came in at all. And age isn't everything, but what the person has learned and how mature the person is sais a lot, and going out there alone really helped me to learn to take care of my self and I'm really glad that my parents alowed me to go, but I had to pay a little prize... they were calling me constantly to check on me
I was in Milano for 2 months when I was 15, by myself. I turned 16 two/three weeks later. Newly 16, might as well have been 15. I was crazy homesick the first week and could not believe my mom would let me go by myself.

But my parents know me, and they knew that I wasn't going to do anything extremely stupid.

It really depends on the girl.... [/b][/quote]
I wouldn't be scared that my daughter would do anything, but I would be scared of what other people may do! You never know.

I didn't read what everyone else said, just a few flances - just in case it wasn't really answere d(although I am sure it was)

From personal experiance, as a fahion model.. I make nothing for editorials. I end up LOSING money after buying the magazines. (I remember when I was in Vogue L'Uomo it wa slike 30.00a c opy and EVERYONE wanted a copy of course.. thats when I told them to go buy it themselves hahah)

YOu make money off of your ad's or camapaigns. You can get campaigns that makeyou good money without them being Dior or Gucci.

So, personally, the way I make money is doing lookbooks, runway shows, ad's and oversea's 'campaigns' (Wjat I am talking about are usually small, and I would say 95% of the paid stuff I do doesn't end up in ym book) but it funds the lifestyle so you can continues being able to afford doing ediutorials.. then one day.. HOPEFULLY, you start booking DIOR, Chanel, VERSACE etc etc etc


Trust me, the "supermodels" arent starving.. for lack of money at least


reallym, if you have a good booker that truly cares about you - they will work thier butts off to make that you are making money. At least - that's what I have found in my experiance

Very interesting information, Rachel! Actually, this is a very fascinating subject that I'm terribly interested in.

How much would a model make off of doing a commercial campaign, for Gap or Guess or Mac and Jac per season? Would she make about $20,000 if she "starred" as the main female model of that campaign?

And what are lookbooks anyway?

Until recently, I was making educated guesses about what some of my big-er, not huge, model friends were making. Surprise, surprise, she only made $700 shooting the D&G campaign. I made more when I shot for KMart!!!! Major ad campaign does NOT equal money!!!!!!!!!! She made most of her money for a catalogue. And every top model making money isn't making it from her shows. Maybe her campaigns, a little. Unless you have a contract with a company, like Lonneke Engel for Ralph Lauren, she's under an exclusive contract with Ralph Lauren. She's making a pretty penny.

I've learned the secret, ASIAN ADVERTISING!!! As a model you never see it, unless you travel to asia, or flip through asian magazines. You won't believe their day rates. A model just starting out who books a korean advert makes at least $5000. My friend sarah has a higher day rate because she has shot D&G and editorials everywhere, and she shot 4,5, or 6 asian advertisements this summer. Uh huh, that's where she's making her money.

This summer, I had castings for Korean advertisements everyday for the month of July. Sometimes twice/three times a day. Almost everyone I knew new/older models shot a korean advertisement. All my new models friends were able to pay off the debt and all. I shot two Korean adverts, good fun! We were all very excited! haha If you were in NYC and didn't shoot an asian advertisement, or didn't see anyone for Korean advertising..there's a major problem there.

Its official, everyone makes their money in asia.

The Asian market is where so much money comes from right now! Whether going to Japan on contract or shooting Korean lookbooks in NY... The pay for D & G, CK One, and some others is abominable. But the exposure from it obviously sells you "oh you know xyz, shes the _____ girl" (well, your booker can sell you this way easily!). That and you get to work with a big photog... There are still some campaigns that could provide MAJOR pay especially for an exclusive. I know of some big paydays on campaigns...

The amount made off a campaign varies wildly. Sometimes the more prestige a campaign carries, the lower the pay! It can be much more than 20,000... or much less...

Lookbooks are more or less "catalogs" with photos of all the "looks" in a designers collection- like each look sent out on the runway- often only one model is used. They get sent out to major customers ie boutiques, department stores etc by the designer to try to get them to carry pieces from their collection, sent out for PR etc. Most people never see these.

Maybe somebody knows who exactly they are usually sent out to.

[snapback]287351[/snapback]

These models get paid that money becasue they do a major amount of catwalk in al lthe major cities and shows so they are considered on a celebrity level. There was an article one time saying that Natalia Vodianova got flown to Greece for a fashion show just for the pay and service she would recieve in Greece during the show. Karolina Kurkova also makes mucho money in Spain becsaeu she is like a celebrity there.

As for Asian advertisement it seems after looking through some major Asian campaigns Jessica Stam, Maria Carla Boscono, Jacquetta Wheeler, Hana S., Heather Marks and Elise Crombez are everywhere.

Thanks for answering my nosy questions.

So the more prestige a campaign has, the less money the model makes? The fashion industry has a really strange way of doing things!

But I think I understand what you're saying. Basically, a model takes on low-paying editorials and low-paying/high-prestige campaigns in ORDER to secure the high-paying/low-prestige campaigns? Kinda paradoxical but that does sort of make a twisted sense!

It's just funny to realize that some "commercial" models might be making more than regular high fashion ones!


So... let me just pull out the resume of my favorite model, Megan Ewing. I'm leaving out all her magazine work and video work, since she likely didn't get paid much for that anyway.



Megan Ewing's Resume:

Advertisments:
Aeropastale (1+ advertisements)
Cat (1 campaigns)
Guess (2 years, 6 campaigns)
La Perla (1 campaign)
Mango (1 campaign)
Skiny (1 campaign)

Catalogs:
Abercrombie and Fitch (1 catalog)
Freeman of London (1+ catalogs)
Newport News (1 catalog)
Otto (2+ catalogs)
Victoria's Secret (3+ catalogs)

(You can view almost all of this work at MeganEwing.net, btw.)


Exactly how much of a fortune must she have amassed from all of that? I'm assuming we're talking in the thousands here... 50,000? 100,000? 500,000? (Okay, the last one is aiming waaaaaaaay too high...)

Please satisfy my curiousity!
