Most of us can only dream of our wedding venue being in such a prestigious location as The Savoy, London, however that’s just what models Sabah, Khedidja and Jake got to experience…..
Models Direct’s client, Brides do Good are a social enterprise who sell luxury pre-loved and sample designer wedding gowns, up to two thirds of the sales of their collection of dresses are donated to their partner charities, Plan International and Too Young To Wed, to eradicate child marriage.
There are so many different Halloween make up options to choose from, how will the Models Direct team ever decide which ones to go for…….?
In an office that is mainly female, there is alot of chat daily about products, makeup, fashion and trends in general, so when we actually have a reason to get dressed up, it’s pretty exciting!!
When faced with the idea of a Halloween party, which alot of us our tonight, what do we go as? The Models Direct team have been researching some of their favourite looks and tutorials on Youtube – here are our top two!

Have an amazing Halloween guys!! The Models Direct team will share their scary looks with you all soon!
There’s a big demand for model families – earning money and being together – doesn’t get much better than that….or does it?
It does when you are selected to work as a model family, in your pj’s, on a bed for the day, paid to have a duvet day – yes please!!
That’s just what one of Models Direct’s model families was selected to do by Mattressman for a recent product shoot. The shoot took place in Norwich and the Brown family had a lovely day relaxing, playing games and reading on a big bed in their pj’s – what fun!!
The Models Direct team were delighted to be able to offer this opportunity! If you think your family has what it takes to be a model family then check out www.modelsdirect.com for all the information.
“This was the first commercial set that I’ve been on and boy was it a movie!”
Being an extra can be a very exciting role to be selected for whether it be to appear in film, theatre or TV!
Most TV dramas, films, commercials, campaigns, music videos and theatre productions will include extras in some way. It could be a crowd scene that requires lots of additional people, a walk on part (non speaking) or a large scene, battle, party, street, public place that needs to appear full and busy – all these people have been booked as extra’s!
Models Direct often receive enquiries from production companies looking to book extras, they generally don’t have very specific requirements and acting experience is not always necessary. The client may need a particular age group, look, gender or ethnicity depending on the project, so the Models Direct team will source the ideal people.
A question we are asked at Models Direct agency HQ several times a day. We’ve all seen pets being used more and more for advertisements and product packaging. So here are some of the questions Models Direct ask to pet owners applying for their dog to be registered for pet modelling with us.
Working with Dogs can be challenging and therefore a dog who is obedient and well behaved is important. Consider what their recall is like, how they interact with strangers, young people and new environments. Being on a photo shoot would be in an unfamiliar setting and whilst the assignment crew would go to extraordinarily lengths to make sure the dog model felt relaxed and at ease, there would be a level of expectation that your pet model could through you, take instruction.
“I’ve had lots of feed back from the filming and we can’t wait to get some more work, Hugo loves being in the limelight. Thanks to Models Direct for giving us this opportunity to show off the lovely Mastiff breed to what they’re all about, The Gentle Giant!” – Ronnie Miller (Hugo’s owner)
Hugo is such a beautifully natured dog and truly is the The Gentle Giant his owner Ronnie Miller explains him as – the Models Direct team were delighted Hugo was selected to star alongside Tony Robinson on the latest episode of Britain’s Ancient Tracks on Saturday night on Channel 4.
When a child model is selected for an assignment it’s essential that parent and child feel completely and have all the details they may need about the assignment, check out how our model Freya got on at her recent assignment in Cambridge for a large safety awareness campaign!
“I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism as an agent and for choosing us to be one of the Models Direct models.”
We would like to express our gratitude for making our daughter’s first ever assignment so enjoyable for us all, we really didn’t know what to expect as this is a completely new adventure for our family. From the moment you rang us letting us know that Freya was shortlisted for the assignment until the actual photoshoot and beyond, we felt valued, reassured, comfortable and very well informed about the process step by step. When we arrived at the venue, there was a lovely representative of Models Direct
that greeted us and the waiting room was very welcoming. The most important thing for us was that our daughter was happy with the photoshoot and comfortable in that environment and I can honestly say that she really enjoyed her experience. Everyone was so friendly and our daughter was full of smiles although your client needed a serious facial expression for their campaign :).
We got there eventually! I cannot thank you enough for your professionalism as an agent and for choosing us to be one of the Models Direct
Assignment feedback is always helpful for the Models Direct team to receive from their models after an assignment…….
A lot of time and planning goes into every assignment by one of the booking coordinators at Models Direct. The coordinator will have built up a relationship with the client, will have spent time understanding their requirements and searched for the ideal models to put forward to the client as options – sometimes this can be quite a long winded process!
The Assignments team at Models Direct often get enquiries from clients looking for fitting models……What are the requirements for a fitting model?
Being a Fitting Model may not be something you hear about alot, but they are an essential part of the design process for fashion designers and clothing manufacturers. When working as a fitting model or (fit model) you are acting as a live mannequin, the client will want to see what the fit, drape and visual appearance is like of their product on a ‘real’ person.
