Answer:

You do not need formal education credential to become a fashion model. Some modeling agencies require you to email photos directly to them. You will then be contacted to showcase your potential. It is also possible to walk into an agency during a specified time and meet directly with agents and clients. Alternatively you can attend modeling schools that provide training in posing, walking, applying makeup, and other basic tasks. Some agents scout for 'fresh faces' at modeling schools, which you can attend. You can advance by working more regularly and being selected for assignments that offer higher pay, including appearing in magazines, print advertising campaigns, commercials, or runway shows. This will give you higher profiles and provide more widespread exposure. However, to advance in your career will depend on your previous work, thus you need to maintain a good portfolio of high-quality, up-to-date photographs. It is also important to actively participate in social media and build a large number of followers to increase your exposure, for example Instagram. Additionally, you should choose your agency carefully, based on their reputation and skill as this will influence the number of assignments you will likely get.
