FASHION CALENDAR: A Preview from IMAGE Agency: New York Fashion Week 2-11 till 2-18

IMAGE Models Agency is launching 2010 with a New York Fashion week which is being held in honor of Olympus Fashion Week in New York City. Lola Baudin, the COO of IMAGE Models Agency has lived in New York City and has traversed the very grounds where Fashion Week is held in Real Life. “This project is very special to me because New York City is where I found my deep love of fashion and it is a place I want pay a tribute to in Second Life. Although the concept of Fashion Week isn’t new in Second Life; I wanted to bring my interpretation of New York City and the amazingly fashion forward people who live there.”

The Fall 2010 Collection is set to launch for the week of February 2010-2011 and IMAGE Models Agency will correspond with the same dates in the Second Life grid. Virtual Reality has gotten much press in the recent crash of the economy; even USA Today wrote an article on this recent Trend. People are now turning to shopping and living in virtual world as a form of entertainment since it provides those same values for much less. As Jayne O’Donnell, reporter for USA Today states, “Unlike Reality, Virtual Retail Sales are Hot Especially For Avatars“. But this isn’t just about sales and profits. It’s also about creativity and energy that thrives in Virtual Reality. “The thought and and the ideas behind the designs surpasses anything we can find in Real Life. Unlimited by gravity, production cost, and imagination; Virtual World Fashion is something truly spectacular to be seen and experienced,” Baudin states. It is with this premise that NY Fashion Week has emerged.

Even though the events are still in planning stages, some of most notable Second Life Companies are on board. Maxes Loon of Moolto will be our sponsor for the event. We will hold the Fashion Week on Moolto Event Sim and also be a featured event for Moolto. Topaz Joubert of Maniera Magazine has graciously agreed to sponsor IMAGE Models as well. “We are still speaking with several Second Life companies about sponsorship opportunities including Real Life Fashion Companies,” Baudin states. This is a fashion event not to be missed.

WATCH:

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN IMAGE MODEL? Are YOU FIERCE enough?
Let’s Ask CEO Ethan Haalan.

Q: What attributes must a model possess in order to gain admission into your agency?

EH: Attributes a model must possess in order to be in IMAGE models agency are: Well, they should have a good personality, a good understanding of how second life works, a passion for modeling, be Unique , something that makes them stand out, should be able to walk a runway. Those are the basis to what you would need if you were considering admission into IMAGE models agency.

Q: Is a potential candidate for your agency required to undertake training specifically with your model academy?

EH: No, any model/upcoming model looking into becoming an IMAGE model do not need to take any “COURSES” with the agency. It’s not required for the simple fact that it isn’t necessary if they already have training.

Q:There is a general perception amongst models that some agencies only hire those who have established a reputable name for themselves, whether it be with a top-tier agency or otherwise. Is this important to you? Model training aside, are you willing to take a chance on a model who is new to the industry?

EH: As far as who I accept into the agency, no – names, or titles don’t matter to me, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE absolutely LOVE a fresh face, I love to see someone new walking a runway, it literally makes me smile to know, WOW – look what you can do and know that they can possibly be one of SL’s next supermodels. As far as having training at all, you MUST have training, some sort of training, because not only for our sake, but for the models, you should know what you’re getting into, what the agency asks of you, what you would be capable of doing, and how you would go about it. But as I said before, if you are a model under the radar with training, and you can add some sort of fierce-ness to my runways then hey! welcome to IMAGE :).

THANK YOU SO MUCH, Ethan Haalan and IMAGE AGENCY for letting us interview you and for sharing with our readers what IMAGE AGENCY is all about.

ARE YOU FIERCE ENOUGH TO BE AN IMAGE MODEL? Please Tell Us What You Think And Leave A Comment. TY.
