Many kids start off dreaming of modeling for Abercrombie, Hollister, Victoria’s Secret, or any other of these popular clothing stores. So because it is such a popular vision, I figured that we should write a blog about how to model for them and appease the masses. Let’s start with Abercrombie & Fitch.
Abercrombie & Fitch requires that models be at least 18 years of age or older. This is because the models they use in their ads and campaigns must first work in any one of the Abercrombie stores. Only employees can become eligible to audition for Abercrombie & Fitch marketing campaigns.
Hollister is very similar to Abercrombie. The only real difference is that at Hollister an individual only needs to be 17 to apply for a store position. Once again, the models in their ads and on their walls start by working in their stores and then audition for Hollister Co. marketing campaigns.
Victoria’s Secret is a little more difficult, they do have options though. First off, models must be 18 years or age or older. One way is to attend a casting call for the Victoria’s Secret model search. This is something that hopeful models can google to find out when and where and attend with the hopes of getting noticed. Victoria’s Secret also selects models from both the Ford and Elite Modeling agencies in New York City. So getting signed with one of these agencies will put you in direct competition for Victoria’s Secret’s castings and auditions.
Let’s recap, Abercrombie and Hollister both require that you first work in one of their stores and must be at least 17 years old to work for Hollister and 18 to work for Abercrombie & Fitch. Once both of these criteria are met, individuals will be eligible to audition for future marketing campaigns. Victoria’s Secret is a little different. Hopeful models will need to be at least 18 and will need to attend casting calls, which will be packed with other modeling hopefuls. Or they can try and sign with one of the high end agencies that VS uses to cast for its shows. Sadly, the truth is that it will be difficult for many to work for Victoria’s Secret due to the overwhelming competition. Just remember, work hard and trust in the Lord and this way you will always have a chance.
