AVENUE Advanced Academy February 2013


AVENUE Models Academy, one of the most highly respected model training programs in the SL fashion industry, is delighted to announce the return of our popular Advanced Workshop Series. This cutting-edge program pairs top SL models as instructors with current, specialized courses designed to push you to the highest levels.

Each month, a carefully chosen group of instructors possessing refined skills in various aspects of the modeling field will present a specialized workshop. This workshop will be offered at various times during the month in an effort to cater to multiple time zones and schedules. Class sizes will be kept small with a maximum of fifteen students per class in order to optimize each student’s learning experience. Expect to be challenged while perfecting your own skills in a variety of areas with workshops designed to send you straight to the top of the fashion industry.

During the month of February, AVENUE Models Academy will offer the following workshop to students participating in the advanced program:

The X Factor: Making Your Mark in Castings & Contests

It’s a competitive world out there! From castings to contests, models who master the key to success in these two areas become the industry’s rising stars. What is that elusive combination of ambition and skills that gives a model the x-factor and takes him or her to the top? “The X Factor: Making Your Mark in Castings & Contests” will be presented by four instructors who are AVENUE Models and who not only have experience on both sides of the casting table, but each have also scored high achievements in renowned contests in the industry. Learn the secrets of their success and how to apply these tips and techniques to your own repertoire so that you can get an edge on the competition and fast track your way to the top of the industry.
