Welcome VIP Models


The VIP  Modeling experience is one-of-a-kind. 


Our commitment to a quality show requires all models to be properly trained, therefore we cast from our Model Workshop, where every participant will get hands-on training from experienced models and industry professionals.  Included in our model workshop is an agency presentation where you will have the opportunity to walk for modeling scouts from across the country. After your training, you will have the opportunity to strut your stuff on the runway in VIP's "The Beauty in Fashion" show the following day.

VIP NYFW is all about diversity and inclusivity,

inviting EVERYONE to apply.

It is super important that every model is properly trained before we will assign them to a designer, and even the most trained model needs to practice and refine their skills. This is why we only cast models for our designers from the model workshop.  

**Kids ages 4/5 and up. They must submit a video prior to casting.**
