Letter from the Editor
Welcome to the Style Academy Blog!
It’s been over 20 years that I’ve been a part of the modelling industry – being a professional model myself as well as managing models and actors. Following my career in modelling, I founded Moda Management, the modelling agency that has been credited with several fashion success stories. My personal experiences in the fashion industry coupled with the zest to reach out to young aspirants and guide them in realising their dreams, helps me passionately lead Style Academy – currently one of Australia’s leading training institutes for modelling, acting, photography, make up artistry, hair styling and self development.
I am immensely fortunate to have had an illustrious international career that helped me create a wide network and understand this industry inside out. That’s why we at Style Academy never compromise on the quality of training and it reflects in the models we produce. From Women Management that represents the likes of Cara Delevingne & Natasha Poly to Elite, Next, Wilhelmina and Zucca Models – leading global agencies from New York, Milan, Paris, London and Tokyo frequently visit the academy to scout for the right talent.
Besides the experience in modelling, my academic degree in Psychology has been instrumental in helping me make the right connect with all those looking out for answers about the fashion industry. Through this blog, I hope to reach out to all the young, aspiring models, actors, fashion photographers, makeup artists and hair stylists out there. I truly believe there’s a spark in each of us, but it takes the right eye to spot it and the right guidance to make it shine.
From the frequent ‘How do I become a model’ to ‘Do you think I have what it takes?’ Rest assured, you have reached the right blog to get all your answers. Your parents can also feel free to drop in their questions. What’s more? We will also be featuring interviews with some of the top players in Australian fashion, cover events, share style tutorials and much more.
So, stay tuned & I look forward to connecting with you.
