Fashion modeling is a field which consists of glamour, lime light, thrill and fame.
The prime purpose for fashion modeling is to pose for ramp shows, fashion shows, fashion photography and the print media, some specialize in a few of those but mostly models are a part of all these fields.

Big designers and brand names prepare garments which these models display by wearing them during the ramp shows in order to make it reach out to those who matter. Models need poise, natural movements, elegance, beauty, and grace so as to enhance the look of the attire and look good on the ramp, bringing in positive attention that is required.
