Online modeling and catwalk training is one of the popular jobs among many people who are interested in the world of fashion and clothing. You will definitely be familiar with this profession when you start looking for training in this profession, but we want to introduce you to the concept of modeling science and profession first.

Modeling and catwalk are one of the areas where brands and sellers of goods and services introduce themselves to the audience and customers. In this way, brands have criteria for choosing people, that’s why they use people who have a good appearance to introduce their brand, which has a special impact on the minds and eyes of the audience. Many people around the world work illegally in this field. Models have gained fame and popularity through this profession and by collaborating with different brands. The influence of the model and its effectiveness is such that it is known all over the world, for example, the Victoria’s Secret brand with its popular models. First, let’s check together what the original meaning of the word modeling is.

History of modeling in the world

Modeling was first implemented in 1853 with the idea of a person named Frederick Worth, who was also called the father of tailoring. He asked his wife to wear clothes that he had designed and produced. With this, he displayed the clothes to the public. It was here that the term “fashion house” became popular among people in France and the city of Paris. In the beginning, there were no special conditions to enter the field of modeling and people with different sizes and looks were used to show the variety of designs, clothes and products.

With the passage of time and the development of the branding discussion and the need to have expertise and skills in the modeling profession, standards were defined for entering this field. Of course, over time and simultaneously with the world of fashion and different designs and annual trends, model standards have also changed a lot.

What is modeling?

Maybe this question is ready for all of you, what is the difference between people who take photos in photography studios and those who are called models. In the following, we will provide you with the answer to the question that most young people ask us. Simply, modeling is a tool by which brands and manufacturing companies present their products to the public with the help of people called models. There are different types of modeling, the most popular of which is clothing and car modeling, which is more popular.

Clothing manufacturing companies organize various clothing shows to promote their brand. These shows are usually held seasonally, where the latest ideas and designs of that brand’s clothing designer are exposed to experts. To display these designs, models are used so that they wear the clothes and move in a certain direction.

Being a model has its own conditions, among the requirements of being a model is having the right height and weight or the right bmi in people. For male modeling in a live show, height 185 cm and weight 1-7 kg less than average height and for women 175 cm and 1-7 kg less than average height is appropriate. However, you should note that these specifications may be different for some modeling agencies.

There is another category of modeling that is not a live show and it is called photo modeling. In this modeling, the main factor in choosing is having a beautiful face or a suitable body, and height is not very important. There are also other special types of modeling, such as large size modeling, which do not have proper height and weight criteria.


Some models work more professionally in this field. These people cooperate with prestigious and world-class brands. Their cooperation with these brands and their capabilities have made them successful and popular all over the world. These people are called super models. Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, Kim Kardashian and Bella Hadid are among the most familiar names of supermodels who are also very popular in Iran, and many models in our country define them as an ideal for themselves and always They imitate these people in their profession.

Concepts and terms of modeling

The world of fashion has a series of terms and concepts. People who are interested in working in this field should be familiar with these concepts to become professional in their field of work.


An important profession that models should pay attention to is maintaining one’s physical characteristics. Models must control their diet, have a regular exercise program. Sleep enough to stay healthy and photogenic. Haircuts, pedicures and manicures that are related to women are necessary expenses related to this work.

The difference between real modeling and virtual modeling

You may have met some people on the pages of virtual networks such as Instagram and Facebook who have introduced their profession as modeling in their bio section, and you have a question, are they really modeling? There are differences between real models and virtual models that you can figure out with a little thought. The real model receives different amounts of money to participate in the modeling project and usually modeling agencies or brands ask them to cooperate. But the work of virtual models is not modeling, but taking photos in the studio, so they pay a certain amount of money for one photo. Then the photographer prepares their photo and adds a special brand logo next to it for beauty, most of which are fake.

What does cat walk mean?

Although some women’s and men’s clothing brands are trying to expose themselves in seemingly new and unconventional movements of each season, but in spite of meeting all Iranian and Islamic standards, the issue of live show of clothes or the catwalk is still taboo. Some senior officials are afraid of breaking this taboo. As long as modeling, especially for women in Iran, is a taboo and a clothing red line, holding underground catwalks will only be detrimental to modeling and the live display of clothes; A live show that is an important link in the country’s clothing industry.

The big brands of the world with the live show of the clothes actually scrutinize the market and the taste of each season and contrary to the popular opinion, the live show of the clothes and catwalk is not a luxury event at all, but a very practical event. The next point is that the look of modeling and the live display of clothes, both for women and men, should be removed from the jangler or luxury look and become a professional concern, so that in the end, a clear idea of what is presented as the new introduction of each season of each brand. create We asked two specific questions to two people who are fashion designers who are also university lecturers and appeared as judges in several catwalk courses.

Considering that the men’s catwalk is held officially, but the women’s catwalk is still held underground or exclusively for women, we asked them if we can hope that in this government, modeling will be a professional concern and not a luxury event. Should it be mentioned in the field of fashion and clothing or not?
One of these professors told us that, in the field of science and clothing, we have much more important concerns than modeling, which is much more important and decisive if the new government pays attention to the textile and clothing industry. Of course, I don’t mean that modeling should not be valued, but the main problem and solution of Iran’s clothing is not only dependent on modeling.

Modeling is an issue that arises with the passage of time and the cultural change of society, and it may not be necessary for the government to implement a special program on it. The other person also said: I can’t clearly predict how this issue will be done, but the process of organizing fashion and clothing, which started a few years ago and has been a hot topic, has been growing, which I believe has moved very slowly. The biggest problem in this field is not using specialists and experts in this field properly and on time.
