Everyone, this is Holly Sherman, one of favorite models. We may say that a lot about our models, but with Holly we are going to tell you why we love her so much. She signed with us a little while ago after being scouted in Illinois. She did her test shoot with Dolls Model Management, and we saw that she had a lot of potential. Like many of the models we work with, Holly had a couple of things to work on before we launched her career. I won't specifically say what Holly needed to work on, but generally models need to either work on their grades (if they are still in high school they can't travel if they don't have good grades), sometimes they need to clear up their skin, or start exercising/eating better to have a healthier figure (it may seem superficial, but it is the industry we work in).
Part of our model management is the development of a model. We could have tried to launch Holly's career after her first shoot, and she might have been successful, we wouldn't have signed her if we didn't think she was someone special. We just knew that if we developed her a little bit and gave her the opportunity to work on what she needed to, she would have a much better chance in this fickle industry. Instead of being a good model right away, we wanted to have her be an incredible one after a little time preparing for her career.
So after Holly's shoot in New York, she took our advice seriously and spent months working on getting herself ready to really dive into her modeling career. We kept in contact and were impressed by Holly's dedication to her goals. Soon she was ready to travel back to New York and work with our partner Fusion Model Management.
"I'm signed with Fusion and currently building my book," said Holly. "It has been an extraordinary journey so far and I can't wait to see what the future holds."
Neither can we! Seeing Holly starting to live her dream of being a model is so rewarding because we know she worked hard to get there. That will serve her well because she will appreciate her successes more. We hope that our current and future models will see this story about Holly and realize that if/when they receive criticism they can either ignore it, or use it to make themselves better. Below one of our favorite pictures on Holly's instagram it says, "Decide. Commit. Succeed." We can't think of a better motto for our models, and we hope they can all have Holly's maturity and drive in their careers as well.
