  • I was a model in my mid to late teens - I am 5'7 - the minimum height requirement was 5'6. I did runway and commercial stuff but catalog models can be under 5'5. If you call around to different agencies, you'll find one that represents shorter models. So the answer to your question is definitely yes. Get some professional photos taken and put together a small portfolio to submit to different agencies.

    • Okay thanks! I really hope i grow though, as i wish i could one day be runway, not because i think i think I'm amazing but i just like that kind of thing :)

  • Depends on the agency, for example, Models1 requires models to be at least 5'8. For runway and high fashion, I think you need to be around 5'7/5'8. Some agencies will take models of any height.

    To start, maybe you could go on Model Mayhem (just be careful on there though, generally work with people who have good testimonials) and start collaborating with photographers and make up artists in your area. :)

    • Okay thanks! Is model mayhem a genuine site?:)

    • Yep, it has models, make up artists, stylists ect. Good for portfolio building. I would maybe wait until you are 18 though. :)

    • Okay thank you!!:D
