Congratulations on being booked in for your UK Models assessment shoot.

Few important things to remember for the day

On the day of the shoot, we will be wanting to create different looks. As such, we would ask you to bring a minimum of 5 to a maximum of 7 different outfits with you on the day of your shoot so we have as much variety as possible.

To give you some ideas, it would be a good idea to bring something casual (high street fashion), also something smart to contrast (maybe something you would wear to a nice occasion).

You could also bring anything cultural to show your versatility or something seasonal (spring/summer looks and autumn/winter looks) is good, also a mixture of colours and varieties.

Try to make each outfit as different from the last so your final portfolio has a lot of variation.

Accessories are totally welcome, this will show your creativity and also jazz your outfits up so, for example, you could bring scarves/hats/bags/jewellery, and with footwear, you can bring flat shoes/trainers/boots/loafers/sandals etc.

We would recommend the outfits should be something age appropriate as agencies and casting directories want to see an aspiring model for their actual age.

As you will have a Hair & Makeup Artist on the day, please remember to have clean/freshly washed hair with no hair products like hairspray/gel in, and no makeup on as the team in the studio will take care of this for you.

❌For under 14’s please avoid bringing in:-

  • No big branding, lettering or characters on clothing
  • No crop tops
  • No tiny shorts
  • No swimwear
  • No heels
  • No fancy dress
  • No football kits
  • No school uniform
  • No earrings

✅What we recommend:-

  • Block colours or prints that are not too busy and distracting.
  • As we will be creating a portfolio please think about making sure each of the outfits stand out from each other for variation.
  • Please think about different occasions and what you would wear at them, e.g. casual, sporty, party, family occasion.
  • Accessories are fine for variation

I hope this helps however if you need any more suggestions then feel free to email/call me any time.

Most importantly, best of luck for the day, I hope everything goes really well!
