What happens to the models after they turn to an age where by they are not able to model anymore? Will they still be part as the team and work in the development board for instance?

Runway models can go a long way if they are a familiar face in a certain market, and commercial models can go up to 65. We do have models turned trainers in our agency, or hopping off to other platforms such as acting, hosting, marketing, brand PRs or starting their own business.

Why models with the age of 24 and above can't be fashion models??

I did not say that you cannot become a fashion model if you're 24 and up. I meant that it will be tough for us to groom a new face at 24 to become a fashion model because it will be very competitive. At 24 alot of models would have had a strong portfolio to begin with, and aside from that if we are to train up some one at 24, by the time she's more or less ready she would have been 25 alr, and I'm not even saying about girls who are slow learners or take forever to brush up on her walk. At 24 your metabolism slows down and toning up your body is harder than when you're a teen, you have to be extremely disciplined. At 24 you might have study loans car loans etc and you need a job that can pay off these loans right away, modeling does not provide the stability especially in your first year. I can go on and on on the cons of starting at 24, it isn't impossible but it's definitely a rocky road. Talent agencies would be easier to enter and commercials are pretty good income.

Hello, confidence is important at the oc but I've got no experience modelling, so I'll not know if I'm doing it right ? :P

It's not about whether you're doing it right, we will groom a fresh face to a model so it's more about you being comfortable with your body and being easy to work with infront of crowds and cameras.
