"Owning it" something you should Know...

Models before hitting the stage here's little something you should Know & Remember..
You were chosen for a Reason and you are Here on the Stage, Kat walk  for that Reason.

Even before you hit the stage you have to have a sense of Ownership and even before that stepping into a casting Call you have to be Confident in WHO YOU Are. As a Performer,Model  Designers, Directors, Show Coordinators and Producers are looking for a glimpse of just who you are. Sure measurements play a role in being casted but it's also about Personality, Confidence to Complete a look,  to Carry/ wear a certain garment on the RUNWAY or take particular Shot  during a Photo shoot. "OWNing it" and if  you can't "Own it" step aside and come aboard  or approach casting calls when your Ready.
It will save you and those involved  Important Time. 

"Owning it" means you Own/Embody the Garment.
The Entire/Complete Look, Feel, and Style.. 

"Owning it" that's what Completes the Look/Vision of a garment it can Make or Break a garment when in a photo shoot or on the Runway. To walk with that "Owning it" feeling Inspires the crowd, and makes/helps future Buyers buy.(i'm not being mean) but being a Runway Model means more then being Beautiful (Male 0r Female) the Kat walk is not a place to be Nervous or Intimidated you have to be a Warrior.

Taking a short break but in the Mean time a few THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Taking some Me Time to get a few things done like wrapping The MOD Calendar ,Prepping for Some Exciting Future/Spring 2012 projects and other Business. When i'm done trus you'll know I'm Bac on THE Scene like only I can be.

In the mean time let me share something with my Fellow Artists both New & Old 1.ANY LEGIT Fashion Show and Casting will Always give you the Facts/Details Up Front Prior to your even going to casting call as to NOT waste your or company time.
2. A Legit Show/production NOT MAKE IT Mandatory THAT TO BE INVOLVED or Casted You MUST SELL TICKETS to secure YOUR Modeling/Performance SPOT.(If you Fit the clothes and Have the LOOK the Designers Require) YOUR IN the Show Period. You are there to MODEL/ and lend your time as an Artist and that's it.Your Job & Responsiblity is NOT to Cover Production Costs unless that's something you agree to before hand and are Being PAID to DO. btw (getting images from being involved in any performance is a given)Not a form of Payment.

... 3.Lastly NO ONE has the Right to BELITTLE You at ANY TIME OR Point and MAKE YOU FEEL Less then who You ARE(Human). I DON"T CARE WHAT Title or POSITION they have OR CLAIM to Have..If they can not Treat,Talk to you as a Humans or Adults WALK AWAY (there is NO EXcuse for that) It's FORM oF Bullying and Control and NO ONE HAS THAT Right Over another Human. They DO Not DESERVE Your TIME, Presence, and Artist involvement NO MATTER WHAT the Project or Claim to Fame.Trus they would NOT like it if the shoe were reversed nor would they Allow such treatment if it were them being treated that way.

4. Follow Your Gut, It's OKay to say"Thank you for the opportunity But I'll Pass.
* so as ALways I DON'T have a problem Speaking, asking Questions and Or giving Advice which is part of who I am and which has Alliowed me to MOVE forward in Not only Life But My Career as well any one that says different ask them to look as My Work,Resume' and Track record for anyone i've helped. You don't have to like me However you will Respect me as I would do concerning U.

You should not be coming out of pocket to buy TIckets if you are't able to SELL them(*remember ALWAYS ask yourself" what would I be getting if I were buying the ticket", " is the ticket worth the actual cost")(sometime as much as OUR Support team wants to be involved there are times when buying a ticket is not possible but that don't mean your supported anyless then someone esle.)

See you REAL soon

Rules Of Life, Common Courtesy..Chew On That.

Food for thought.As a Child we are Taught and Told rules of Life...1. Respect yourself, Treat others the way you Want/Expect to be Treated..2.What goes Around..comes Back around there's No Expiration date on that.. and Lastly if you really intend to Succeed & move Forward in ANYTHING you do.. refer back to Rules 1.,2. So tell me why do so many people Act Brand New or like they were not Informed or Taught these Rules and look at you crazy because you Live your Life by them and seem to be Exceeding in Everything you Do! Yes I said it. So enjoy your day.. Chew on that.1 day Some of Us don't Wake up.. Some Learn Something Wise enough to be Better people and Enjoy a Fulling Life and on Other days some Stay in the Drama and Turmoil and Never really Move at all and if they do move it's NOT at the rate they would have Moved if they Applied those very Basic rules of Common Coutesy.
