Thank you for sharing, Ines.

Your story is typical, I would say. That's how it usually happens ... you just sort of "fall" into it by networking with the right people. Sooner or later, they learn that you have the "eye" to know which models will "sell" to clients. It's a talent that some people have an most people just can't get. It's hard to teach anyone how to have the "eye" because, although there are general requirements (height, build, good bone structure, etc.), it's the quirky little things that make a great model.

I fell into styling that way, assisting a photographer, who noticed I had the eye for wardrobe choices. But I don't have the "eye" for models at all. She had it .... and tried to teach me, but I never got it. It would make us laugh ... because I was sooo bad at it.

I will be going to different agencies in Paris next week to apply for a position.
How likely is it for an agency to hire someone as an alternant ? (3 days at uni / 2 days at the agency).
My chances seem slim to none but I can't help but try.
