Wanted! Fitting Models

I introduce to you, Shalayka!  She is wearing the infamous MyMeApparel Beach Girl Dress!
(Yes, I named my dressform...)

She is my dear companion through my journies as a fashion designer.  She has listened to my woes, held up fabric for hours on end, let me poke and prod, and carried me through to some great works! Never saying a word,...and rarely turning her back on me or poking me back!  She has stretched out and stood up for me ...but there are some things she cannot do...shrink below a size 14 or extend past a size 18.

Hence, the reason why MyMeApparel is seeking fitting models...

What is a fitting model...a fitting model is a model who works with a designer/fashion house to be a human dress form.  He/She will come to the studio at times designated by designer and model to try on garments for purposes of construction and altering.  Fitting models may also model in fashion shows and photo shoots, accompany designers to trunk shows, fashion shows and private screens of elite clients.  Fitting models are compensation in a number of ways either through service swaps, direct payment per fitting or in periodic payment as designated by designer/model.

MyMeApparel is seeking both male and female fitting models of all sizes (with an emphasis on children and plus size).  Models will be compensated on a service swap basis.  Fitting in exchange for portfolio photos, promotions and exposure.  After three successful fitting sessions, models may be financially compensated, as agreed upon by MyMeApparel and model. 

All fitting session take place at the MyMeApparel home studio in Douglasville, GA.  However, additional travel is anticipated, for the successful fitting model, as it relates to photo shoots, fashion shows, trunk shows and private screening - including some travel outside of GA (usually with at least two weeks notice).  Fitting models must be able to stand for an extended period of time, be able to do "quick changes", live in the Atlanta, GA area (including suburbs), have reliable transportation and be available within 48 hour of being notified of the need for fitting session.  Some fitting experience appreciated but no required.  Average fitting session expected to last between one and four hours.

Are you a human "Shalayka"... are you smaller than a size 14 or larger than a size 18 or have that asymeterical big breasted, tiny waisted, big bootie thangy going on...are you a child or a man of any size other than 14 to 18? ... those interested please email your head and body shots to mymeapparel@yahoo.com or FB inbox me at MyMeApparel or Valeri L.
