Models Direct Supports Diversity

Models Direct believe that everyone has an equal right to succeed, to appear in mainstream media. We want to see more ‘real people’ in the media and we encourage diversity of all looks and body types.

Clare has been represented by Models Direct for 6 months, she has a condition called Dystonia, a movement disorder in which a person’s muscles contract uncontrollably, she therefore often uses a wheelchair and can use her crutches also. 

Models Direct represent a variety of models with different abilities, adults and children of all ages and are proud to have been able to promote them successfully to large and small clients and brands across the UK.

Last week the Models Direct team were delighted to be able to tell Clare she had successfully been selected to feature in the latest online campaign for Hive – the UK’s Leading Smart Home Provider – as you can image she was delighted too!

Here is what Clare had to say about her Assignment experience:

“Yesterday I had my first assignment with a company called Hive and I had a fantastic first shoot. They sent me a taxi to get to the location and I arrived in good time.

Everyone was so friendly and reassured me as I was slightly nervous with it being my first assignment.

I had to try on some different outfits to play wheelchair tennis. When they chose the outfit that they liked the best I then had to do action shots with a tennis racquet as if I was leaving my house.

Everyone from the wardrobe stylist, photographer and producer were amazing and put me at ease. They also arranged for a taxi to take me home.

They were all very helpful and accommodating towards my disability.

I can honestly say that I really enjoyed my first shoot and I look forward to more in the future!

Thank you so much Models Direct for all of your help in getting me my first assignment and keeping in touch regularly and giving me all of the information that I needed for the assignment! ”
