Models Direct Get Sporty!

At the end of 2009, Columbia Sportswear completed their tenth and eleventh assignments with Models Direct! The company has returned again and again to find fitting models for their clothes.

All ages and types of models are needed for fitting modelling and help clothing manufacturers find out how their clothes feel to wear and how they could be improved. For one of the recent assignments with Columbia Sportswear, it was 11-year-old Harry’s turn.

“I loved it. It was the first time I’d done anything like it and the people and clothes I had to try on were fantastic,” Harry informed Models Direct’s coordinator. “I loved the new experience and the fact that everyone was so nice to me the whole time I was there.”

You Should Never Work With Children or Animals… Or Should You?

In the entertainment business they say never work with children or animals, but working with both turned out to be the perfect combination for one of our female models, Elena.

Elena was working on a photographic assignment with fellow Models Direct model Gareth, young toddler Sam and a pet dog. The photoshoot took place in Sevenoaks, Kent, and was for Kit for Kids, a child care and development company to recreate a previous company logo image.

Elena was the star of the day when she managed to get the grumpy toddler interested in what was going on, which ultimately resulted in a very successful assignment. Models Direct received a very positive account from Lindsay at Kit for Kids.

“Both Elena and Gareth were great and very professional but Elena especially was brilliant,” Lindsay informed us. “All in all it was a successful shoot and wouldn’t hesitate to use either model again.”

Six Year Old Bethany Proved to be the Perfect Model

At the end of last year one child model from Peterborough, Bethany, took part in a photoshoot for Trimedia UK, the European PR company of the year.

They were looking for a cute child model on behalf of their clients Indesit Company and NPower and required the child to be photographed spelling out words with magnetic letters on a fridge.

Trimedia had previously selected a model, but when the advert was put together they felt that they hadn’t achieved the right look. Emma and Libby at Trimedia were shown a selection of model portfolios with professional pictures and even though Bethany’s portfolio picture was one that was taken at home they could see she would be perfect for the role. With only a few days’ notice Bethany was chosen to attend the photoshoot in Peterborough.

It was the first assignment for the five-year-old, and both her and her mum Sarah enjoyed the experience. Models Direct asked Sarah how the photoshoot went.

“Watching Bethany was an amazing feeling, I’m very pleased,” Sarah told one of the Models Direct coordinators. “Bethany is a natural, she knew what to do. Keep on with the good work.”

Ashleigh and Shae-Love are firm favourites of Smiffy’s and have both completed a number of assignments with them. They don’t seem to mind too much – after all, what little girl wouldn’t love to spend a few days trying on fancy dress outfits!

“Ashleigh’s first assignment was magical,” Ashleigh’s mum Kerry told Models Direct. “As a family we enjoyed every minute of it. Ashleigh really enjoyed dressing up in all the fancy dress costumes, having her make-up applied and especially her hair curled, making her feel like the princess that she is!”
