​Before you start seeking modelling projects, do some research on the industry

Do you have the heart and perseverance to pursue your dream of a career in modelling? At Zed Casting, having launched successful modelling careers within a short span of operations, we can say that getting a slice of the trillion dollar fashion and glamour industry is about playing your cards right. For the industry to take you seriously, start by learning the rules, because we have seen how luck favours those who are prepared for the opportunities. Since every job is different from the previous one, being able to adapt quickly in a changing environment will help you navigate through trying times and challenging assignments.
Before you start seeking modelling projects, do some research on the industry—and set short- and long-term goals. In a journal, make notes about your aspirations: amount of money you want to make, brands you want to represent, countries you would love to travel to, photographers you want to work with, publications you want to appear in, runway shows you want to do, and how your new found status would change your life. Look back often to assess progress. From the introspection, you will discover your true potential and the markets, where your chances are the best.

​“Anyone who plans to be a billionaire in their lifetime does not have time to investigate the latest fashion trends."

​Buy. (Rip). Throw away. Repeat.
“Men hate this. They need go-to style with highly durable quality for all their adventures.”

Oliver Palnau exists to be the coefficient of professional style. Every piece can be paired with another and match perfectly. Saving hours of lifetime and saving you money and energy.

“Anyone who plans to be a billionaire in their lifetime does not have time to investigate the latest fashion trends. Men don’t have time to walk through the mall and visit 37 stores before finding the right shade of blue for a shirt. They could be planning extraordinary adventures for their wives with the time I save them on fashion choices.” Says Oliver Palnau.
Each piece comes with a 2 year warranty covering all potential wear. The shirts are a hybrid between classic and slim fit shirts because of the emotional ups and downs of serious businessmen. A C-level executive can be sitting down at one moment, then they check their profit and loss and violently jump up arms swinging. With a tight slim fit shirt this motion would cause immense stress of the material and could result in a tear.

Yeah, it is kind of hard to follow up on all the trends that keep popping up around every corner. One day it's crop tops, the next day it's peplum skirts- who can keep up with that? Filling up your closet with new clothes every season isn't really something a lot of girls can afford, so it might be smarter to invest in some better and timeless pieces that will last you a long time and that will always be in style no matter what the trends are. Moreover, it's important to find pieces that will suit your style and your figure perfectly- that way you will have a good value of everything you buy. Here are a few tips to follow to shop on a budget.

I am Not Rich Enough to Buy Cheap Things
This should be your mantra. Stop blindly following the trends- you don't have to have every possible style of skirt or dress there is. Chances are some models probably aren't even the most flattering for your figure. Also look for the tag on the things you buy and look through the materials that were used. Avoid synthetic clothes, because your skin won't be able to breath in them. Invest in some better quality pieces, because they will last you a much longer time, they won't strech or fray, whereas buying cheap things and being aware that they will last you for just a few washings would just be a concious waste of money, so always buy less but better quality.

Basics are Key
There are thing that will never go out of style and that you will always need. Buying basics like a good cotton white t-shirt, good pair of jeans of a little black dress is also good because you will always be able to combine them and make various outfits, whereas buying accent pieces won't give you many options when it comes to combining pieces. You can always dress it up or down with accessories such as shoes, bags and stylish jewelry. You should also try buying in specialized stores like dress shops or shoe shops - those will most probably have the best quality products in the range they are selling.

Invest in Good Shoes
Buying cheap shoes just to have a variety to choose from really isn't the smartest option. Bear in mind that bad quality shoes can really damage your feet and make deformations that you will not want to deal with, especially when you get older. It's always better to invest in a few timeless quality pairs of shoes such as good flat boots or black pumps, that could work for many different outfits.

Don't Get Swept Away by Sales
We know that sales can get you many good deals, but girls often get swept away and buy things they don't actually need or like just because they are cheap. This way you end up with a closet full of things you will weat one or two times and shove to the side. This doesn't mean you shouldn't go to sales, but kepp in mind what you need and what you want and try to get the best deals for those.
