Velour Model auditions take place once every year in the month of January. Since launching in 2017 our team has grown tremendously, and we now boast of a pool of more than 20 models. Our policy has always been quality over quantity, therefore we choose the most striking, most promising talent to join us. Outward appearance gets the job, but character builds the career, we value individuals who are committed and open to learning.
The past 2 years have been tough for the modeling industry and by extension the fashion industry. The pandemic and the continuous containment measures crippled the events industry leading to a standstill in our industry. We are therefore honored to have had 8 models walking the coveted Tribal Chic Fashion Show, the first show to take place post-covid. Velour Model Management is steadily growing into the 1 management and training agency for fashion models.
This year we also broadened our scope and delved deeper into the pageantry industry. Our founder was the official catwalk coach for Miss Wolrd Kenya 2021, who placed top 13 in the World Top Model competition. Additionally, she sat as jury in the biggest Pan African talent competition, The Opportunities are Here Project X. Our models have continued to explore different types of modeling and we are proud to have worked with incredible brands such as Penny Winter this year.
Growth is a continuous and sometimes slow process. All models will not grow at the same time or at the same pace, everyone’s journey is unique and different. This industry requires patience, determination, and consistent investment in one’s talent.
Velour Models auditions take place only once a year. This is the only time that we take new models. 2022 model auditions open on the 14th of December 2021.
Velour 2022 auditions are open to both male and female aspiring models from the age of 18 years. The audition is strictly for models who wish to focus on fashion modeling. The models should be willing and ready to attend training throughout the year.
This year’s model audition is open only to models who have never done modeling before. Never been trained, never been signed to an agency, never been to a photo shoot, never done any form of modeling.
The model audition is divided into two, virtual and physical auditions. Models who miss the virtual selection cannot attend the physical selection.
