“I went to Premier model management agency in London couple of months ago. Prior I asked my friend, let call her J, to introduce me to her agent to see if they would be interested to represent me in London. The answer was : “Yes”. I came to the agency and reception girl asked me some basic questions: how old I am, my height, weight, etc. She took a few pictures of me with her camera and suggested me to wait on the couch. While I sit there, girl went to the other side of the room to pass the information she got from me to the booker I had an appointment with. But isn’t it a basic rule of politeness to at least say Hi to the person you have an appointment with? Not in this case. After just few seconds reception girl came back to me with a statements I’ve heard million times when I was 18 years old newcomer. “You’re great and we understand how much value you have, but we don’t think we are the right fit for you. We can suggest you other agencies if you wish and blah, blah, blah”…
Come on! Seriously?
You perfectly knew who I am and that I was coming. You could google my pictures any time before. And you could be better than treat me like I don’t deserve 5 seconds of your precocious time and make me to pose for a girl who don’t even know how to hold a camera! And If you already got me to come over, have respect to come and say “Hello”. You never know how life will turn on you. Maybe one day I become your client who will treat you just the same way you treated others. I don’t want to mention some names, but I really have a lot of connections and several great casting directors are good friend of mine. Remember for the future: the stairs you are going up are the same you are going down.
So here is the advise for you , my real newcomer, girls who are making their first steps in fashion world, never take this kind of behavior personally. Some people ego in this business are too high and their own insecurity are their major problem. You are gorgeous. And maybe not this, but other beautiful things will come in to your life”.
