Do You Have What It Takes? Cynthia Bailey Agency 5-City Model Search

Supermodel Cynthia Bailey and The Bailey Agency School of Fashion are initiating a five-city model search, providing young talent (ages 13 and up) the resources and education they need to excel in the fashion world.

“I feel like the south has less access to the possibilities of getting discovered by scouts. It was very difficult for me getting discovered. I really didn’t have a lot of information about the business, and I definitely didn’t have any real access to figure out how to get into the business.”

Starting in the Real Housewives of Atlantastar’s Alabama hometown, the judges will travel to Charlotte, Nashville, Jackson and New Orleans looking for the girls that have “it.” The model, who cites her Essence covers as her career highlights, emphasizes education:

“It’ll be a two-day seminar. The first day will be the model search. For that day, we’re just booking for someone who has the look of what it takes to be a model. The second day is the seminar process, and they will get an opportunity to talk to industry professionals–photographers, bookers, agents, hairstylists, makeup artists.”

And ambition:

“If I hadn’t had the ambition and the courage to leave my little, small city in Alabama and go to New York City, I think my life would have been very different. I know that one choice led me to where I’m at right now.”

One finalist from every city will reconvene to compete in the South’s fashion mecca, Atlanta, Georgia. The ultimate winner of the search can anticipate a $10,000 cash reward, a contract with a model agency and a Derek Blanks-photographed spread!
