Modeling is not all about glitz and glamour. In reality, this alluring profession has several perks and drawbacks just like any other career. Besides all the hard work and dedication, models often have to deal with issues that are not openly discussed. These problems have prompted many aspiring models to quit the industry before seeing any growth. Renowned British model and actress Amanda Van Annan has authored the book Win the Runway to help aspiring models navigate the modeling industry.
Win the Runway stays true to its title. Van Annan believes her book will be a practical guide for aspiring models to live the life of their dreams. The book unveils several aspects of the modeling world, from the good to the bad and the ugly. She writes about the most sensitive and controversial issues of the modeling industry. The book covers subjects like drugs, racism, sexual abuse and nepotism.
Van Annan’s book doesn’t only talk about the challenges in the modeling industry, it also provides important tips that models can use to navigate the terrain. She believes that Win the Runway will be the go-to guide for models who want to make it big in the industry. With 20 years of modeling experience, Van Annan has shared some very useful information to help potential models make it through agencies, castings, open calls and photoshoots.
Win The Runway reveals how aspiring models should conduct themselves throughout their careers and informs them about the perils of the industry with suggestions on ways to deal with a lot of issues. Like every other career, modeling also has its highs and lows. Depression has become a common battle for models. The book can help models understand the industry and figure out ways to take their careers to the next level.
Win The Runway ends with a much-needed workbook to prepare models with everything they need to reach the top. To take her initiative beyond geographical barriers, Van Annan will be launching an online model coaching program named after her book. This program will help aspiring models around the world gain insight into the industry and learn everything as a model. To launch this program, Van Annan has teamed up with world-renowned models, photographers and agents who have years of experience working in the industry.
Van Annan is a successful model, TV host, entrepreneur, author and yoga devotee. She is planning to soon launch her e-commerce site with multi-brand beauty products. Currently, she is focused on her book and is optimistic about achieving her goal of helping more models build their careers. Win The Runway is now available in bookstores and online.
