Modelling Classes are more than strutting on a catwalk & posing - Timely email received today from Melody's modelling Academy in regards to classes this week that I wanted to share with you. I know I have mentioned this before but modelling classes are more than strutting on a catwalk and posing.  If you do your research and find a good modelling agency such as Alpha Models, your young one will grow as a person and develop positive social skills. There is so much to learn about grooming & deportment, building self esteem and self respect, manners and etiquette. The email was letting parents know that this week's class is a grooming lesson in basic skin care and make-up; Melody's favourite subject!  It is important to learn to take care of your skin from a young age and to develop a skin care routine to take you through the years.  I've been slack about my own skincare regime and to be honest I am delighted that someone is providing this valuable info to my daughter. Nobody is forced to wear make-up or to go out an buy what you don't have, it's about learning. There is much criticism by some in regards to children being exploited and being forced into an industry at such a young age but I feel sometimes parents are not given enough credit for knowing when this industry is not right for their young model. There are non-reputable people in the industry who should be held accountable for exploitation of young people but the issue should not be confused with the many good people who are trying to make a positive difference in young people's lives and even to those who aspire to a life in the fashion industry.  Not every person who takes modelling classes aspires to be a super model either!

Congrats on a very professional event yesterday. I was particularly impressed with the poise and confidence projected by the young model students. They are an absolute credit to your school and they could fit anywhere on the world arena. The event itself was perfection.  Most impressed. A very positive business improving confidence for so many in a very professional manner.

Thank you so much for a lovely professional show around a stunning setting. Congratulations to both you and Zak for the effort you put into your girls. It shows that they are in very good hands through their polished appearance, posture and of course the friendliness. Lovely to see the whole family support and we thank you for supporting the Jonte label.
