:It’s a fact, people have had to deal with it. None of them matters any more because in the end it pays off eventually. After all the challenges and then you get to find what you’re looking for, that makes you feel comfortable and more relaxed. So that’s the idea, once you make use of it, you hold your stuff in a balance.That’s where you’re able to cope with pressure which comes upon you daily. Smiling is all you need, if you assume the wrong posture, everything will be in a mess. It’s better you take a cautious step, it gives you the ability to be well in your area of interest. As it happened, Tyra Banks, the famous American model was rejected for the fouth time before being accepted into a modelling agency.
Honestly, most of them used to think that models are sensual people or practically naked girls who’re lacking manners and wishing to show parts of their bodies, without any regard. In a way, it’s a struggle to accept the challenge to become a model because of how rejectionable people sound sometimes! As a matter of fact, if you ever introduce yourself as a model, people stare at you with weird eyes, they think you’re missing out on yourself and resorting to a bad behaviour, hardly will you see anyone trying to justify the call to be a model.
It means that, if you can’t handle rejection without taking it personally, modeling is not for you. The UK-based Ghana model, Lorna Asante tells it all, listen closely as she talks, modeling is a temporary career and you’ll be rejected. For once, maybe in your attempt to secure a contract or by your friends, it could even be people around you. How do you deal with it, do you allow it to bring you down or you use it to your advantage. Your guess is as good as mine.
The fact is, fashion models in Africa have grown into prominence over the years, it doesn’t matter the block of rejection which was placed on their way. Nowadays models are seen in the spotlight, as individuals with fine structures and big bodies, who’re tasked with the responsibility of showing what’s available in stock for up and coming designers as well as experienced ones. As it’s already said, being a model means being comfortable with yourself, being happy and loving the way you look. As you can see, we’re getting somewhere, I hope we’ll catch up with time.
Fashion shows in Ghana are a source of inspiration to the model as well as the audience. By so doing, people get to know about the designer and identify with his/her brand. Striding on the catwalk in an African perspective, how does it pay off eventually? Is it worth paying for the price? I heared about a fashion icon who’s well known for designing powerful outfits for famous guys but wouldn’t take part of a runway show. According to him, the results you get is not commensurate, after spending lots of money and time trying to put it together and then you get little or nothing at all. I’m optimistic, once the runway show is directed towards those who’re utterly concerned, it’s likely you’d get the feedback you had always expected.
