To a normal person, an embarrassing video is nothing but a funny video. To a runway model on the other hand, an embarrassing video is more than just a very funny accident. It can be something that can break a career into pieces. Social networking sites that allow people to pass these videos around effortlessly are not making it any easier either.
This is why you should know the things that you should do and the things that you should avoid in order to have an untarnished runway modeling career.
Here are some of them.
Practice walking in super duper high heels. Don’t even assume that just because you have already successfully walked once in those super high heels in a fashion show, you will never trip. You have to be aware of the length of the heels that you are wearing. Make sure that you take very step with precaution and grace.
Always stay focused. Most of the time runways models fall down because they are not paying attention to their environment and the dress and shoes that they are wearing. If you stay focused and make sure that you are aware of how long your dress is, then you won’t step in it. If you stay focused, you will still be able think about the every step that you are going to take with those deadly high heels.
If you can take a look at the runway before the fashion show begins, then by all means you should. This allows you to take note of anything that may cause you to trip. Although high end fashion shows are well funded, there are certain circumstances where in the runway is not really that smooth. Either which way, you should always do your best to make sure that you are well prepared for anything that may cause you to fall down.
Runway modeling is all about working the garment. However, don’t lose focus in doing so. Always remember that runway models should have the ability to think about everything all at once, the runway music, the dress, the people watching and their body movements.
