Modeling is a challenging profession with many jobs and many more still in development. As the industry grows, so does the demand for skilled professionals to work in many different facets of the industry, including fashion, beauty, photography, and runway. To achieve a prominent position in the industry, a great deal of learning is needed. It is thus imperative to evolve alongside the industry and be open to the changes being made.
Andrea Accettulli also known as Jonny Red, a former international model, believes that “Perseverance is the key to success, as long as you’re willing to put in the time.” Modeling is one of those careers that require many hours of dedication with such a limited window to achieve success. There are many ways modeling can improve one’s skills and knowledge, from fashion shows and photo shoots to runway shows and fashion week. Considering that the industry is constantly changing, one must stay up-to-date with an understanding of the latest trends and changes in fashions within the industry.
