A model should be focused towards her/his career. The new emerging models should have a right yet positive attitude. They should be humble, sweet and soft spoken rather being arrogant is the most successful key to become a model.
What do you find the most challenging part about working in the fashion industry?
According to me there is no such challenging part for a model you just have to act smart and stay focused towards your career. If you are good people will approach you themselves. If you are good on the ramp and good at work you don’t have to run after anyone. People will approach you on the basis of your work. If you have all the qualities so I guess that will be enough.
What is the best advice you have ever been given?
A Famous Photographer and Makeup Artist Ather Shahzad is my source of inspiration, he is like mentor to me. I always listened to his saying and most of the time they are in my interest. He always guided me to stay humble with others and has advised on almost every work related issues that I could face in the fashion world.
What advice would you give to aspiring models?
If you have something in yourself, and most of all you have a firn believe in yourself, then you should definitely enter in this fashion field. As our fashion industry is exploring so many new talented models now, it’s the best time to revive it by introducing fresh faces. I feel really good when a new model enters into this field with educated family background; this shows that our fashion industry has enticed girls from elite families.
What are your workings on right now and what are your future aspirations?
Recently, I have completed shoot for Lala Textile Lawn and is occupied with other fashion projects by acclaimed designers and fashion houses. FCW, London Fashion Week is coming up so I will be going there soon. There are so many fashion shows lined up already to keep me busy.
Tell us and our viewers about a model life?
Most of the people considers modeling on the ramp as the easiest task. Well for fashion models it’s not, it’s really hard to carry overworked heavy dresses while walking on the ramp. A fashion model has to be on her toes for all such happening. Moreover, your physical maintenance is very important, you have to be fit yet healthy in order to survive in this field.
Do you have any tips for non-models on how to look good in front of the camera?
They should reduce weight. I have seen all the new girls who has recently joined the fashion modeling industry, they are little chubby. They should work on their gestures, body language and expressions.
Eshal Fayyaz's fashion experience is remarkable in the modeling. Her optimism and lovely personality fetch her to the heights of success.
