#LoveIsland chat at Models Direct

As the Love Island craze sweeps the nation, it has by no means bypassed the Models Direct head office!

In a busy office like ours,  there is plenty of chat  about the general goings  on,  who said what, who’s done what and who needs to be saved (and who should go!!),  it’s all pretty gripping stuff!

What is it we all love about #LoveIsland??

Viewing ratings have soared and broken records, so  it’s clearly a concept that appeals to the majority and offers it’s viewers  something not other programs do!

With Charlie, Eyal and Hayley all being models the Models Direct team have been watching what’s going on and how they come across to an audience,  with their toned physique ‘s and  good looks, they seem to be what alot of viewers aspire to be like possibly, is this  a healthy thing? Is it a true representation of how models are in this industry today?

Models Direct represents all category’s of models, including, fitness, fashion, catalogue and commercial, all  have a variety of shapes, looks and measurements.

Love Island has all the right ingrediants for viewers, fun, laughter, beautiful scenery and of course gorgeous people, all of which is  good escapism from our own lives for a little minute –  it’s very clever, entertaining TV from ITV.

It’s Friday night and with two couples up  for elimination, who are you going to be voting to save??

Models Direct Baby Model Lola’s Mum Reviews Her First Assignment!

Client: Vintage Kit
Model: Lola
Model Ref: 199406
Model Fee: £30

Models Direct baby model Lola looks like she had a great time on the beach for her first assignment! Lola’s mum said this about her baby’s first modelling assignment…

“It was fun and Lola seemed to enjoy herself. She loved meeting new people.”

Fourteen-month old Lola was just one of six models who were selected to take part in a photographic assignment on the pier and beach in Brighton. Luckily the weather was nice and sunny, so the children were able to run around and enjoy the day.

Models Direct client Vintage Kit – a Children’s clothing company – originally came to us to find three models of all ethnicities aged one to four. Photographer Katherine told us she wanted to do the photo-shoot on a beach. It didn’t matter which beach we chose, as long as the models could get to it easily. So we chose Brighton and found three great young models for the shoot.

Soon after, Katherine came back to us requesting three more children – not a problem for Models Direct! So it wasn’t long before another six child models were enjoying a day on the beach modelling the Vintage Kit clothes.

It was the first modelling assignment for baby Lola, and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Both Lola and her mum Tracey loved the sociability of the assignment and met lots of great people.

“It was fun and Lola seemed to enjoy herself, modelling 7 outfits on the beach,” Tracey told us. “She loved meeting new people and it was something different. It’s hard work but fun.”

Even celebs will be seeing our young models on the Vintage Kit website. Amanda Holden is a big fan of the clothing. “…great and playful fabric,” Amanda told Vintage Kit. “Gorgeous very classic designs and most of all remembering we are dressing children not little adults!”

Tracey told Models Direct that her model coordinator Summer (the coordinator) “was very professional, giving us all the relevant information we needed. We had fun and are looking forward to other assignments.”

Models Direct Success Stories

A Dream Come True!
I grew up admiring the beautiful models gracefully flowing down the runways and donning gorgeous new fashion wear in the magazines. Although I dreamed of doing the same, in my heart I never imagined that a common girl like me could participate in this exciting line of work. However, I thought I’d give it a shot and contacted Models Direct who found me my first modelling job for women’s wear. The experience was exhilarating and everything I anticipated. Models Direct has found me several other modelling assignments since. Thank you Models Direct!  Models Direct

Smooth and Comfortable Transition
I was so nervous when I received my first photo shoot assignment for special teens programs! Since I hadn’t modelled before, I wasn’t sure what to do and my nervousness only increased on the day of the shoot. However, I was so amazed at how helpful everyone was at Models Direct and how much they worked to set me at ease. Within a very short time, I felt extremely comfortable and began to enjoy making the various poses and expressions which seemed to come more effortlessly as the shoot progressed. The photographer was super at giving me tips and not making me feel stupid. I highly recommend Models Direct as their professional talent management helps to prepare the way for aspiring models to enjoy a smooth transition into the field of modelling!

A Princess Is Born!
Our daughter Abby has always been the princess type who enjoys dressing up and sneaking into mother’s makeup bag when the chance arises. She is always gazing over the beautiful model photos in the magazines and expressing how lovely the ladies are on the telly. When I came across the advert for Models Direct, my husband and I decided to inquire about talent management for our daughter. In no time, we received Abby’s first assignment modelling for an upcoming summer clothing line. We were a bit apprehensive at first, but once we arrived at the site of the photo shoot all fears subsided. Everyone at Models Direct was gracious, answered any questions we had and worked wonderfully with Abby who beamed with excitement at her chance to show the world she was, indeed, a princess! We highly recommend Models Direct for child modelling opportunities that expose young people to the joys of an adventurous career.
