WHAT IS MODEL PREP?
IMG launched Model Prep in August 2008 as a sort of mental boot camp to help prepare new models for what was to come during New York Fashion Week and beyond. With an emphasis on our talent knowing they have access to the resources necessary to be at their best, the annual evening has included speakers who are experts in their fields, from casting directors, to therapists, dermatologists, financial advisers and always features one of our top models who shares his/her own journey – its ups and downs.
Here, Senior Vice President David Cunningham takes us from the genesis of the program to the development of our monthly seminars that cover topics our models have asked to discuss, all of which support them holistically, and really make a difference as to how they take on this business.
Here you can find the resources recommended by our very own Romola Ratnam & Judy Matz and Fashion Our Future founder, Abrima Erwiah. Together we can align to mobilize our audiences to vote. See you at the polls November 3rd!DOWNLOAD
