Models who attended our course


When Layla joined our model training back in 2016, she was a shy and soft-spoken girl who wasn’t really confident with her body. She did not really know what modelling is about, but wanted to try it because it seems interesting.

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Layla worked hard and found her confidence in modelling. Not only did she appear on various fashion magazines like Harper’s Bazaar, L’officiel, Elle, she also walked exclusively for GUCCI during fashion weeks. She has now worked in all major fashion cities like London, Milan, Paris, and New York and is a regular face on the runway.
