Catwalk Workshops

Friday, July 29th, 2011

The runway walk is an aspect that one so closely associates with a model, the perfect posture, the graceful stride and the underlying confidence so familiar to us all. However it is not something you are born with, the girls and boys from the catwalk didn’t strut as toddlers they all had to be taught.

The art of the perfect walk is not reserved for models, it may not be necessary to stride down the pavement like you are walking down the runway for Chanel but certain aspects are great to use and make a real difference to any individual. Good posture brings an air of confidence to anyone, after all slouching is something we are all guilty of, and the way we walk and present ourselves is a key influence on the response we gain from others. Here at BM Models we offer catwalk workshops taught by director and model Bethania Matheus, the workshops teach you tips and techniques and really get you thinking about your movements. Each workshop is tailored to the group’s needs; budding models are instructed about the best means to show off the clothes they are wearing on the runway and non-models are given tips to focus on posture and confidence.

Each workshop initially gets you to all work together with exercises aimed to loosen you up and break down each element to be learnt. Walking may seem as natural as breathing but there are so many components when you actually have to think about what you are doing, for example do you know where you lead your body from when you walk? After she has passed her wisdom onto you, Bethania then focuses on everyone individually, tweaking and tuning you till you are positively perfect! Recent workshops include Sussex Fashion Awards, Brighton Fashion Weekbrides-to-be, models for Brighton designers Jo Fleming and Renaissance shows.

Graduate Fashion Show

Brighton Frocks

Monday, June 6th, 2011

On a warm Thursday night in Brighton town, in the gothic grandeur of St Martins church BFW 2011 bought us their Brighton Frocks theatrical catwalk spectacular.

The show featured twelve designers and the audience was treated to more than just the standard catwalk, each of the collection put on a performance for the audience with saucy seaside antics, ballet dancers and superheros all mixed up with the designs. Each of the collections was brilliantly unique and kept the audience thoroughly transfixed.

BM Models Bernadette, Bethany and Ngozi walked that night, and looked fantastic on the catwalk for Red Mutha, Former Glory and Afton Ayache.

The Fashion Trust

Sunday, June 5th, 2011

In a competitive industry it can be difficult for small business and creative graduates to get a foothold in the staggering £37 billion UK fashion industry. This is where Fashion Trust wants to make a difference; they are a Sussex based organisation that aims to help fledgling designers and their new businesses. One way in which they do this is through the Fashion Sussex Award, to raise awareness and profile the various aspects of the fashion industry in Sussex.

This year BM Models is honoured that they have asked our creative director Bethania to be on the board of judges to help decide the winners for 2011.

Find out more about the trust and this years awards on their website: Fashion Sussex

BFW VIP Launch Party

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

On a Tuesday evening in May in a crowded suite in the Brighton Hilton Metropole, full of the fashionable and stylish of the city, Brighton Fashion Week 2011 launched itself with a bang!

With so much to grab your attention you just didn’t know what to look at, from the models circulating the room, a live photoshoot with Renaissance and Joanne Fleming Designs, to a live set from the talented Marmaduke Dando, not to mention all the fabulously dressed guests your eyes were spoilt for choice.

The night was a triumph, and we now can’t wait for the rest of the week!

Introducing Bernadette

Sunday, April 3rd, 2011

Here a BM we are proud to introduce one of our new faces to you, Bernadette. She joined our agency in February after coming along to our open casting, and since then she has been a very busy girl!

Bernadette’s first photo shoot was with Headmasters Salon’s creative team. Headmasters Salon Brighton are wonderful at supporting our new faces, the shoot utilised the skills of their amazing team, make-up by Ellie Gill and was shot by Jesper Mattias for his second collaboration with BM Models.

Her second shoot was a couture photo shoot for upcoming label Featherstone Frock, the photos from which will feature in for both their look book and new website.

Last Friday Bernadette walked for the very first time, after a little bit of training from Bethania, at IGIGI’s charity fashion show to Brighton’s fashion scene. It was an amazing event that we were so happy to be involved with, and the night was a great success!

This week the final year fashion students at the University of Brighton booked Bernadette for their look book, where she was able to model their fantastic creations. BM Models just loves being able to work with, and support fresh talent at universities; after all they are the future of the fashion industry.

This is just the beginning we have a lot more planned in her modelling future, she has already been booked to walk for London Graduate Week in June. So stay posted!
