Building a career in the Fashion Industry

Hi everyone :smileyhappy:

Having been the founder of AVENUE Models since 2007, I have been at the forefront of trying to help shape the fashion industry in some way or another. My first goal was to provide creative employment and opportunities for those that work with AVENUE to develop their various talents. So I thought I would start a thread discussing opportunities in the fashion and modelling industry and help shed some insights on it.

Looking forward to chatting with you all :smileyhappy:
