What it’s Really Like Being a Brand King and Fit Modelling
As a Mr. Nigeria International 2016, fitting model for branding collection. “Either you are chosen because you have a style that the brand connects with, or somehow you embody what the designer senses in terms of creativity and design,” says the model, at 5”7 (170 cm) I feel a few inches short of the average height of a runway model, but “A lot of it is just personal and emotional. The designer has to be attracted to you and somehow, on a very human level, want to be around you all day when you’re half-naked.”
The fit, or fitting, model is a vital but rarely talked about role in the fashion industry. A living, breathing mannequin, a fitting model tests out garments to make sure the cut and proportions are right, and helps the brand and designers, pattern cutters and garment technologists identify problems that could impact sales, such as shallow pockets, or armholes cut too tight.
At 6”1 (185cm), with a 40-inch chest and a 32-inch waist, Nigeria-based fitting model, Erico Anthony ‘Mr. Nigeria International 2016’ has the “perfect average medium” proportions (medium is the best-selling size in menswear). “I hit exactly the middle of medium — it’s tailor-made on me, and then sizing is by scaling up and scaling down,” he says.
What It’s Really Like Being a groomed brand Commercial Model
I’m Eric Anthony, ‘Mr. Nigeria International 2016’ I want to explain a career in groomed king, as a commercial model and a career in fashion. Editorial is kind of loosely only referenced to fashion. The truth is that they’re completely different types of careers. There are models who work for commercial brands, like maybe a catalog, like Athletica, or there are a million catalogs these days that models work for and they’re more on the commercial side.
They’re never going to work for a designer. They’re not going to be in the Calvin Klein advertising. They’re not going to walk in a Calvin Klein show. They’re not going to work “Poise and Class Magazine” “Genevive Magazine” “Vogue Magazine”. But they’re going to work for sort of these commercial brands and you might never know their name. But they work all the time and they make great positive perfect impact to the society.
I think that fashion is great and you do make creative poise and class creative ideals. It’s a longer road. It’s a different kind of a road. “Commercial” is not a dirty word in the sense that because you look more like a lot of different people, therefore you become sort of nondescript. You’re the blonde guy. You’re the brunette guy they use. You’re the guy that looks great in blue. You’re the guy that looks great in black.
There are categories for those things. In commercial modeling, maybe nobody knows your name, but as for me everyone most known me as ‘Mr. International 2016’ you can make a lot of positive impact in the modeling industry, while working for the brand. So, the difference of the work is kind of the difference of the groomed career. And commercial modeling goes on everywhere and that’s the beauty of it,
is that commercial modeling goes on in Los Angeles. It goes on in Chicago. It goes on in Dallas or Nigeria and every other African country.
There are commercial brands everywhere in the world. They shoot everywhere in the different countries. They might hire one principle person from New York or Nigeria, but if they’re shooting in South Africa, so they might hire a bunch of models from Nigeria. So, commercial modeling, because it is more accessible, it goes on everywhere. And so that’s the difference. I would say that editorial and fashion, you need to be in a market that caters to that.
Those markets are very specific and they also are tailored around Show Week, where there’s actually a Fashion Week where people are really looking at clothes from a fashion perspective. So, merchandising in a fashion store is much different than merchandising in a catalog company that’s selling clothes online. Those are two totally different types of work, two different types of clients. The mentality of how they sell and what they sell are completely different.
So, groomed commercial modeling, the branding king, the poised & class are different, the stance is different, showing the cloth is different than it is for fashion and that’s the difference between the two.
