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 Week, brides-to-be, models for Brighton designers Jo Fleming and Renaissance shows.
