How Top Models are Made: Dubai Modelling Agencies Revealed

‘Excuse me, can I take your photos to Froilan? I think you have a unique look – clear eyes, a dreamy gaze.’ That’s how it all started. A chance encounter in a Dubai coffee shop led me to the world of modeling, and quite predictably, I was intrigued. Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the curtains of the bright lights and glamorous runways?

Surprise, surprise! Contrary to the popular belief that models are born ready for the runway, there is a mountain of effort and meticulous organization that shapes their career. This one is about the invisible craftsmen of the Dubai modelling industry. Today, we’re letting the cat out of the bag – you’re about to discover the insides of a real Dubai modelling agency.

Getting Our Feet Wet: Scouting and Discovery

The starting point is always scouting. Just as I was scouted in that coffee shop, countless models are ‘discovered’ each day. ‘You’ve got the look – let’s see if you’ve got the guts’ – that’s the sentiment. They search malls, events, and even social media to discover raw talent. The process is constant and often unpredictable. The aim? To find the faces that will redefine beauty, elegance, and poise.

From Raw Talent to Runway Glitter: The Intense Training

Once discovered, potential models are put through rigorous training sessions. Think of it like the training given to an uncut diamond, each session chipping away an ‘unnecessary edge’ and bringing out the inherent promise inside. Stylists and coaches work around the clock teaching potential models how to walk, talk, pose, and ‘be’. Suddenly, everyday things like sitting or walking pose new challenges – it’s like learning how to be yourself, anew.

‘It’s wild! The way you have to carry yourself, every tiny detail matters,’ one newcomer to the industry told me. These stringent lessons are why Dubai’s modelling scene stands out on the global stage; they create models who are authentic, yet flexible – ready to blend into any theme or couture.

Selecting the Perfect Fit: Casting Procedures

The real test begins with casting. It’s like a giant filtration process – a ruthless competition that sifts through the potential models, selecting the ones who are ready for the runway. This process examines not just how they’ve trained, but how well they connect with the brand they might represent.

Whether it’s for a high fashion brand or a catalog shoot, the casting directors crucially consider a model’s ability to embody the brand identity. ‘It’s like falling in love at first sight but with protocols,’ a casting director once quipped. In the end, the selected ones are the ones who bring clothes to life, transforming from mere clothes to stylized fashion.

Behind the Glitz and Glam: Managing Events and Fashion Shows

Finally, the hard work culminates into the dazzling facade we all get to see – fashion shows and photo shoots. But even here, the behind-the-scenes work never stops – getting the right lighting, adjusting the backdrop, tweaking the models’ outfits – these are the ceaselessly moving cogs that make the grand spectacle possible.

So there you have it, the titanic efforts that go into crafting every strut you see on a Dubai runway are no less than a grand ballet performance, meticulously choreographed. Next time when you look at the dazzling runways, won’t you see them a little differently?
