Fashion Models Struggling With Debts

In our quest to remove the stigma of debt, we try to highlight those who we may not necessarily associate with debt troubles. As it’s currently London Fashion Week, now seems the ideal time to highlight the fashion models who are struggling to make ends meet.

New York, Paris, Milan, London…

It sounds glamorous, but the truth can be far from it. The problem with high-end fashion models is that whilst it’s a globe-trotting role and the envy of many, the models’ agents pay for the travel, accommodation and transfers. Unfortunately they want all of this money back. Meaning that many models basically start their career in debt and spend the rest of their career chasing the repayments.

This may come as a shock to many, as success in the modelling world (as in many other walks of life) is measured by the amount of money you earn, and therefore people very rarely talk about their debts.

A French model who doesn’t want to be named has stated, “It always feels like a gamble to make the journey to fashion week with the risk you’ll go home owing more than when you arrived. Maybe 40%, maybe more, go home with zero. That is why it is so stressful.”
