Nina Garcia, speaks of Self Promotion

I enjoyed reading Nina Garcia's comment on self promotion in her article in Elle magazine about Project runway and what it takes to be the next Michael Kors.

I loved it when she said, " To be a designer these days, you must possess not only creativity but a savvy business sense and be able to promote yourself."

I think the same when it comes to modeling and the marketing involved with marketing yourself as a model, especially if you are not the standard size that the typical modeling business accepts. Instead I have learned to market myself by focusing on what areas of the modeling business I can excell in, like parts and print work and editorial modeling and it has to do with not only being a good model, having quality photographs, but also bigger than anything: having a marketing mentality.
