Introducing Henry

You saw him earlier this week in the snaps from the Kely Support Group Fashion Show, and now it’s time to properly introduce to you Henry.

Henry is from Hong Kong – a keen volleyball player, a fitness buff, a student, and a great model. Over the past couple of months, Henry has proved that he is as comfortable on the runway as he is in front of the camera, and we are in discussions at the moment that will hopefully see him in front of the camera again very soon. Recently, he worked with Fiona Taylor on a street style shoot and you can see the results below.

Natalie, Doyel and Salem for the Kely Spring Summer ’14 Collection

We’ve got a bit of a Kely Support Group theme going on this week (and there’s one more post tomorrow, to introduce Henry, who was part of their Fashion Show last weekend).

Today, we’d like to share with you the fantastic photos taken by Matryoshka for Kely’s look book featuring the wonderful designs from the students who were part of the “Seeing the Possibilities” program. The models are Natalie, Salem and Doyel (and we’ll be introducing Doyel very soon). But first, here are the credits:

Introducing Denis

You might have seen the snaps of Denis at the Kely Support Group Fashion Show on the blog yesterday – but, today, we’d like to introduce him properly with some great images shot by the very talented Leungmo.

From Russia, but based in Hong Kong, Denis is a brand new face who’s quickly making his mark. And because development is at the heart of how we work, we’ve been putting him through his paces in front of the camera, and he’s spent some time being coached by AJ to get ready for runway work (and he’s really very good!). He has a look that you see much more often in European fashion but is quite rare in Hong Kong – and truly amazing, soulful eyes! Take a look at these images from his photoshoot with Leungmo:

360 Degree Models at the Kely Support Group Fashion Show

The Kely Support Group does great work in Hong Kong with disadvantaged and minority youth – and 360 Degree Models was extremely proud last night to support the fantastic results of the very talented student who have been working hard over the past year on the Seeing The Possibilities program.

A bit of background on the program: As a way of broadening the vision of our youth, “Seeing the Possibilities” allows local and ethnic minority students to work with mentors within their own communities as a means to develop life goals together through fashion arts and event-planning training. Working hand-in-hand with role models from similar cultural background, the programme provides students with the opportunity to gain social network within the community and engages students in training sessions that are targeted at enhancing their capacities in the areas of self-awareness, goal-setting, event planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. By equipping students with these skills, this programme aims to motivate youth to set goals that are most suited to their needs and utilize these learned assets as the foundation to prepare for the bright future ahead.

The Spring / Summer 2014 collection launched last night was the result of a year of hard work – and we thoroughly enjoyed taking part taking part in the show last night. This week, we’ll be telling you more about the Kely Support Group’s work, and introducing some of our new faces (and experienced models) who have contributed their time and talent Seeing the Possibilities program. Today, though, here are a few snaps from last night’s show. In the pictures below, you can see AJ (who opened the show), Elektra (who closed it), together with Sophie, Charlene, Joyce, Henry and Denis.

Joachim, Elektra and Natalie – #modelonduty

A very busy day today for lots of reasons – but it was great to see Joachim begin the day modelling the Spring/Summer collection for our friends at Loom Loop, photographed by Patrick Shing Wong. He was followed in the afternoon by Elektra and Natalie.

Here are a couple of behind the scenes shots for Joachim and Elektra – and we’ll more fpr Natalie just as soon as we get them:

Introducing Lara

Today we’d like to introduce you to a brilliant new face, Lara. Lara was referred to us by Patrick Shing Wong (and we’ll be showing you his recent photos of Alba very soon) after a shoot he did with her – and we’re so glad that he did. (Funny story – he initially noticed Lara’s twin sister, who has no interest in modelling, but was surprised to find that there was someone who looked exactly like her that was interested!)

Lara is passionate about building her modelling career, and her initial shots demonstrate a tremendous amount of promise. Take a look:

AJ, Joyce and advice for the perfect runway walk

A couple of weeks back, AJ stepped up as our runway coach to prepare Joyce for her first ever fashion show (and he’s be doing it again this weekend as Sophie M., Charlene and one of our newest models, Denis, prepare for their first show). That’s the great thing about a seaside promenade right outside the office – it can also double as a great runway.

AJ has one of the best runway walks you’ve ever seen and, with AJ’s fantastic coaching, Joyce had a great first show (our client was very pleased!). So, here are some snaps from Joyce’s first coaching session together with some great advice from Dania Denise on Modeling 101 on mastering that perfect runway walk:

photo 2

1. Posture: Anytime you set foot on that runway, your whole body needs to be straight (although not so stiff that you look end up walking and looking like a robot). Keep your chin tilted down slightly – the audience generally sits below you during a runway show and you don’t want them looking up your nose the entire time.

2. Eyes: Keep them focused straight ahead and don’t let your eyes wander all over the place – and don’t look down. The exception to this is when you reach the end of the runway and do your pose – then it’s okay to let your eyes slightly look down and make contact with the audience (after you’ve got your photo!). But do this without your whole head looking down – limit it to the eyes.

3. Mouth: Keep it natural – it’s not a beauty pageant. So, keep your mouth closed, relax your lips and be natural, whether you need to have a sexy smirk or no smile at all (depending on the vision for the show). Learn to relax your lips and you’ll be fine.

4. Arms and hands: Your arms should sway naturally as you walk but don’t swing them too much. Keep your arms close to your body so that only your lower arms sway. Your hands and fingers should be relaxed. Don’t clench them up or curl them up in any way. This makes for bad photos – you don’t want to look like you’re missing a couple of fingers. Keep your hands open and your fingers as straight as you can get them without it looking unnatural.

5. Shoulders: Your shoulders should always stay steady and shouldn’t bounce or dip as you walk. Keep your shoulders still.

6. Your stride: To enhance your walk, you’ll need to take longer strides than you normally would (but don’t overdo it). But, remember, in a fashion show, the walk is paced in a certain way so that all the models have a steady tempo to walk to. If you ruin that tempo, it throws everyone off. Place each foot in front of the other as opposed to side-by-side when you normally walk. As you place each foot down in front of the other, allow your hips to sway naturally.

7. Confidence and attitude: It shows in your walk – and when you have it, it comes through in an amazing way that the best runway models possess. It’s something that shines through whenever AJ is on the runway.

8. Pose: In addition to walking down the runway, there is also your time to shine when you reach the end of the catwalk and pose for photographers. It is easy to get caught up in the moment and only spend a few seconds in that spot before walking back but remember, this is not only the time to show off the designer’s clothes to the audience, but for you to get great images for your portfolio. Photographers can’t get a good shot if you’re barely still once you reach the end of the catwalk. When you reach the end of the runway, strike your pose and do a 3-5 second count in your head. Do the same for your second pose if that’s part of the show. This should be more than enough time for photographers to get a handful of images of you that are not blurry, show off the outfit and still keep with the pace of the show.

Introducing Emmett

Today, we’d lile to introduce Emmett – a fantastic up-and-coming model and talented skateboarder. Even before his test shoot a couple of weeks back, Emmett was booked (you can see him on the Academy of Design website), but his recent shoot with the amazing Matroyshka and the brilliant stylist Ng Cheuk Lun was the hardest test any model could ever face – and he passed with flying colors. A location shoot in torrential rain would be enough to try anyone’s patience – but not Emmett. He delivered shot after great shot with good humor and lot of style (although he was a little concerned about rain damage to his skateboard, which we’d planned to use more).

You can see his most recent images here and on his portfolio page. And if you’d like to work with him, just get in touch with us info@360degreemodels.com

360 Degree Models and The Gift – The Movie

Today, we’d like to give a plug to some friends of ours – the team behind The Gift, a movie that begins shooting in Hong Kong this weekend. The story is great – it’s Fall 2014 in Hong Kong and a 12-year-old boy just starting school here carries a gift from his father with him wherever he goes. One day, he is challenged to give it up and destroy it. Will he have the character it takes to learn the true value of his gift?

The film examines the love between father and his son, and explores themes of individuality and bullying – and 360 Degree Models is really happy to be supporting it. Brayden (we’ll be introducing him next week) plays Sammy, and Mark plays Fang. Jomari, Kaitlin, Joachim, Karan, Emmett (coming soon), Sophie M. and Charlene are also taking part in what promises to be a fantastic experience for our models and talent.

You can read all about The Gift on the website http://www.thegiftthemovie.com – and be sure to like the Facebook page. It’s also important to mention that this is a crowd-funded production – so if you’d like to support it, you can do so through this link.

Andy in GQ China

Open this month’s GQ China (May 2014) and you’ll see Andy making his first appearance, photographed by Gary Fu. It’s great for Andy and great for 360 Degree Models (if not for the dog he was photographed with on Shek-O Beach, who didn’t get his image out there!). We’re hoping that there’s more to come – and we already know there will be. Monique completed a cover shoot a couple of weeks back, Jessie an editorial last week, and our models are up for another cover and another editorial this week.

In the meantime, here’s Andy:
