What you didn’t see on the catwalk at Perth’s Melbourne Cup in the YellowGlen Marquee at Ascot.
My babes at Chadwick models and I had an absolute ball. The team of all teams consisted of Tania Muia, Rebekha Clark, Nicole Ford, Ady Grader, Penni Towner, Tracey Martin & Hayley Parry.
A question I have for my readers at BunUpsandBananas is… Does it take a strong team of workers to put together a show, shoot or commercial etc? Or can we use people with little or no experience due to how popular they are on social media?
This is my point of view from a model with 10 years of experience in the industry…
I believe that with the new social-media antics appearing in the last few years, modelling is slowly becoming obsolete. The world of Instagram is now allowing people to use models who aren’t signed simply because they have x amount of followers or 1000 likes to each post. People are looking for cheaper ways to build their empires by using girls who 1, don’t have an agent or 2, have loads of followers. This theory also works along-side those photographers, make-up artists and stylists.
I understand that these social-media selfie queens are cheaper to use but what happened to the magical word: ‘experience’? It’s one thing to add a filter, but where did the beauty disappear to in a whole team creating beautiful images?
Without being a wet blanket, my point is simply that the shows that were happening on the day of Melbourne Cup, took professional creative teams to put together. So why, are we losing the beauty of this due to social media?
Let me hear your thoughts…
