The plus size modelling industry is growing by the day along with plus size modelling agencies popping up globally. Although it’s not the biggest sector in the modelling industry, it is still fiercely competitive and there are a couple of plus size modelling agencies in Sydney and Melbourne that must be mentioned.
Plus Size Modelling Agencies
Although plus size modelling agencies are on the rise, there are still only a couple that specialise in looking after curve models that. The main plus size modelling agencies Sydney currently are:
– Bella Management
– Vivien’s Model Management
BGM used to be the main curve agency but is now in partnership with Viviens.
It is not unusual for some modelling agencies to occasionally represent a couple of plus size modelling amongst the main board. 520 Management and Platform have been known to do so.
Advantages of Signing with an Agency
The advantage of being signed by an agency is that they will scout out jobs for you. They would also let you know about upcoming castings/modelling work and out you forward for jobs they think would suit your look and personality. The bookers within plus size modelling agencies have plenty of contacts and can help connect you with the right network of industry people.
When approaching agencies, it’s good to do your research. Search out professional plus size modelling agencies and use them as a benchmark. Agencies tend to have fashion commercial models divisions alongside their curve division, so be prepared before you give them a call and find out which category you most likely fit into. The agency booker will be able to tell you what the agency’s specific requirements are.
