It's Here! The "Petite of the Week" is Katy
In celebration of my modeling memoir Almost 5'4" hitting England in one week!!! I wanted to announce the first Petite of the Week and also feature a petite model from the UK.
The first "Petite of the Week" is Katy, a girl with personality and a cute pixie haircut, from the UK. Through Facebook, she reached out about being a pint-size model. I did some research and found that there ARE commercial print modeling agencies in the UK, and here is the list I found. Katy also recently expressed that she booked a furniture and sofa advertisement in the UK!!
When I asked her about her experience on the job she said, "I was really excited to be working on the furniture commercial with other models. I really enjoyed working with a team of people, and being also in front of a video camera, which was a new experience for me. My height really wasn't important for this type of project; after all, it’s not only people who are 5'8 who use sofas!!! I believe it has more to do with personality and character to model 'lifestyle' products."
Congratulations to Katy for her efforts and being the first Petite of the Week! I am sure she will be someone we hear about again!
