Careers in Modeling Part 1: Karakana Dialogues Forum for Young Models
Judging by the comments and feedback that our team at Karakana Initiative has received in the first quarter of 2023, most people have been thinking that we are all about fine art and photography only! That is not true. Karakana is here for the WHOLE of the creative industry. And like we said before, April and May, we are focusing on careers in modeling and the other professionals who support them mostly fashion designers, stylists, modeling agencies, make-up artists, photographers, model coaches and content creators.
Yesterday we had the first of three forums at the Kenya Cultural Centre, where we had three hours of intense discussions with industry experts, practicing models, current reigning kings and queens from local and international pageants and aspiring models. This first forum of Karakana Dialogues on careers in modeling offered a deep dive into understanding modeling, a little bit of make-up, and a look at possible career paths in modeling.
The next session, Careers in Modeling Part 2, will take place at the same venue on April 25th from 5:00pm. This time, we will have professionals in fashion design, professional photography with experience in shooting models and commercial advertising, a model agent and a model coach specializing in personal branding.
