From the living “mannequins” of the 1800s to the Insta-famous it girls of today, modeling has evolved beyond just looking beautiful and taking great images. Yes, companies hire models to advertise their clothing or product by way of magazines, television, newspapers, catalogs, billboards, and online. The catwalk is an essential way for fashion designers to communicate to the public, and fit models are an important part of the design process. Their feedback can be essential to the productions of designs.
Today’s models need to be more than a pretty face or perfect body. They have become their own brand, their own voice, and in a sense, become their own Rockstars with fans following their lives, suggestions, and brands.
In today’s OWC’s Leaders & GameChangers, Setorii Pond talks with Alana Campos, who has modeled since she was a teen and appeared in magazines, campaigns, editorials, and more. Through Alana’s love of discovering new places and traveling to over 25 countries across five continents for work, she has become a travel influencer and is an entrepreneur. She created a 100% organic, vegan, and non-toxic bronzer to help us all achieve the perfect tan this summer.
