Iselin Steiro:
Quote:
Iselin was discovered in 1999 while Christmas shopping with her parents in London. In fact, she was scouted twice on the same trip. The first scout was turned down by her mother who answered "over my dead body", when asked if Iselin would be interested in modeling. The second scout sent a letter to a local agency in Norway, which sought her up in Harstad. After her father went with her to one of her first jobs, he gave the "OK".

Is Sasha Pivovarova's husband the guy who discovered her and told her to pursue modelling?

At Oktober Fest in Munich? Good thing she's damn pretty because I can only imagine what she was doing at Fest that couldn't have left a good impression.

Luke Worrall:

Originally dreamed to be a punk rocker, and was training to be an electrician, Worrall was discovered in 2007 coming back from the skate park with his friends in Camden, UK, when a D1 agent stopped him and asked him if he was interested in modeling.

Josefien Rodermans- sent pictures to an agency in Holland after her friend began modelling as she thought "Well I'm tall and I am skinny so why don't I try?"

Monika Jagaciak- Went to a casting in a mall in Poland after being urged by her sister to do so and then signed with IMG a few days later.

Caterina Ravaglia- Was suggested to become a model by family friends who were photographers.

Arlenis Sosa- scouted in Dominican Republic by a designer named Luis Menieur, while walking with her family in the capital, who confused her for a model her knew and suggested she should look into modeling and send pictures to New York. Later that year she flew to New York and walked into Marylin models who signed her on the spot.

Katryn Kruger- scouted at the Canal Walk Shopping Centre in Cape Town by Y Models in 2011

Kolfinna Kristófersdóttir- scouted while working in a clothing store in Reykjavik.

SAMANTHA ROLLINSON (ny models): I got scouted on a school trip in Birmingham- I was scouted by Select (London).

JULIER BUGGE (women): Yes, I talked to my friend, who told me to try to send some photos to 1st Option, and so I did. They called me the next day and asked me to come and meet them, and right after that I signed the contract. I wasn’t really nervous, I didn’t have any expectations if they would call me back or not. I didn’t want to hope for anything.

[FONT=Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif]TAMY GLAUSER (ford eu): [/FONT]Affa is a really good friend of mine. He used to be a model, then became one of the head bookers for Izaio and he said to me that he wants to sign me. That's how it all began..

CHIHARU OKUNUGI (ny models): My Japanese agency scouted me when I was in high school... on the street, waiting for the train...

KAT CORDTS (monster milano): I was scouted when I was working at Mc Donalds to earn some money. I was really happy because i thought this is maybe a good chance to get into this business.




REKA NAGY (DNA): It was actually my best friend who suggested I should try out to be a model, but I was just laughing when I heard it.

...



After about 2 months the agent found me again, but on the Internet and asked to meet with me. They proposed me something great and from there things went quickly, with test shoots and then arriving to Paris.

LENA HARDT (DNA) : My mother agent Ann Kathrin discovered me at the main station in Cologne. I was so surprised. I never thought about modeling.

Same for Mariacarla Boscono: a family friend (photographer) encouraged her to start modeling (also designer Fausto Sarli was one of the first who push her in the fashion industry)
