International model Rachael J Williams opens the doors to one of West Africa’s first ever modelling school.
A professional, commercial and fashion model, Rachael explains that she had to teach herself all the fundamentals of the modelling industry, whilst working in London.
After winning Miss Black Britain, Rachael began giving one to one consultations with aspiring models, in the hope of teaching them what she had learnt about the industry so far. She traveled to West Africa for the most part of 2011 and learnt that there were beautiful, talented models but yet one of the reasons they were not used in Major national and international campaigns was due to their lack of professionalism, resources and knowledge about Modelling.
The RJW Modelling Academy will begin with a range of classes in Ghana and Nigeria this year. Classes will include catwalk training, posing techniques, public speaking, personal development, interview skills, social networking and self promotion.
Models who graduate successfully will be rewarded with a Beauty/Fashion Spread with a Nationwide magazine; they will also have the opportunity to be scouted for an International Modelling Agency.
