on stay

On stay means that model agencies pick models from different cities around the world to introduce them to local clientele. Of course this is only done after a consultation with the respective co-operational agency and the model’s consent. The period of the model’s on stay can vary between 2 weeks to 6 months, depending on the response from the client and the successful bookings of the model. So long as the model is in a city, she will live in an apartment for models and will be given a mobile phone from the agency including a landline telephone card. For a model, an on stay’s daily routine will involve going to Go&Sees and castings and trying to impress as many clients as possible hopefully resulting in many bookings. These periods abroad are extremely important, especially for young models, to expand their portfolio and to get more experience. In this way, they will increase their international market value. .
