Catwalk Modelling and Fashion Modelling go hand in hand, with the catwalk being the place to exhibit the latest collections from the world's designers. Fashion models are used mainly to promote designer clothing, accessories, and a whole range of cosmetics at these shows, which are attended by a whole host of people in the industry. There are four big fashion shows that take place during the year, all with extensive catwalk presentations. Milan and Paris attract many of the big designers who want to show their latest creations on the catwalk. London and New York are also highly popular, and with Milan and Paris they also attract some smaller, lesser known designers, and often provide the opportunity for these new names to make an impression on the larger designers and fashion houses. Catwalk shows attract the world's media, all craving the perfect shot of a designers' latest designs. Models in Fashion and Catwalk Modelling also strive to be in these shows. Fashion journalists also travel to these shows to report back to the world just how impressive the latest designs are and what the fashions will be in the coming seasons.

Plus Size Modelling is seeing an increasing demand as designers and clothing manufacturers realise the potential market for good quality clothing that fits women that fall outside of the size 6-14 market. The ranges that are available to plus size women are growing day by day, and to meet this demand more women who would have previously never considered modelling are signing up with agencies around the world to live their dream. Plus sized models start at around a 14 up towards a 18. It is essential that the plus size model is confident about her body as this will be reflected to the audience that the clothing is aimed at, and help others to feel good about the clothing that they are wearing and themselves in general. You'll also need a fun and attractive personality, as well as great skin, teeth and hair. A curvaceous body is also a must, allowing you to show off the clothing at its best. Like all other kinds of models, a Plus Size model needs to be prepared for hard work and long days, as well as travelling for events and photo shoots.
For Glamour Modelling it is best to work with a model agency, preferably one that has experience in glamour modelling, as the agent will ensure that your safety is maintained and that the client is a reputable one.

There are different types of Glamour Modelling that involve the models wearing a different amount of clothes, from bikini and lingerie shot to topless and nube poses. There are opportunities in all of these fields and many photographers that specialise in each area.
