I'd be all for that.

Do you mean an aditional section in the existing models category, or a whole new category dedicated to fashion?

I would have thought just an additional section in the existing models category to be sufficient. The present categories seem to cater far much for those involved in glamour work.

maybe a whole new section, so you can search through fashion models, or in the forum have photographers seeking fashion models and models seeking fashion work. It's just too difficult to filter through all the glamour stuff at the moment.

Agreed, whenever I post seeking models for fashion work it seems to be lost in a deluge of posts from guys just wanting to see female body parts.

Hey I think this is a brill idea!

Would models have to be 5' 8" or over to post?

I would suggest a tick box for advertisers to select the type of work offered or sought in the forums currently available.
This would then display a category in the thread title. Rather like the location dialogue now on certain fora. 

But for the sake of sanity keep it simple ie Fashion, Swimwear/lingerie, Glamour, Nude, Adult, Fetish & Alternative should cover anything worth doing so we don't need all that "implied" malarkey.

It doesn't work with locations as there is currently a thread entitled Manchester #ff0000">(West Yorkshire) but a tick box would prevent this.

5'8" is considered a must for the cat walk but I've found there's plenty of work out there for models that are height challenged.

That question which opened my post was just my sense of humour coming out Nick.

When the OP suggested a forum for people over 5' 8" I just wondered who would be checking the height of forum contributors and what would be the consequences for any 5' 7" shortarses who had the temerity to post.



However, back to the point, I don't think a seperate forum for fashion work would be necessary if all offering/seeking work adverts carried a dialogue stating the general work type in the thread title.

EG " Blonde available next Saturday in Bristol" #ff0000">(Glamour) or "Slim model with 2 heads required in Birmingham" #ff0000">(Alternative)

If the categories could only be selected via a compulsory tickbox then no ad would appear without the worktype displayed in the thread title.

I'm sure that anybody ticking the wrong box would have it brought to their attention soon enough. This happens already when a thread is started in the wrong forum.

Scarlettes makes a good point. Fashion doesn't equal catwalk. Therefore a height restriction on a Fashion-only forum would be unnecessarily limiting. For example, a fashion designer I know is currently advertising via another site for models for a catwalk show who are around 5'6" - 5'7" but bustier  than the average "fashion" model, because her next collection features a lot of basques and plunging necklines. It's still fashion, but the job could appeal to some models who would otherwise be classed as glamour models. Ditto certain catalogue modelling, where the model's look and figure is more important than her height, but is still classed as fashion.

That sounds like a good idea,rather than a height restriction.

It's a good idea.  In theory that is.
Just like at the moment, where those of less intelligence are cross-posting the same precise thread in the current two forums, the same thing will most definitely happen here too.
If it's strictly fashion, whether it's glamour or not & does not include lingerie, then it has my backing.  That's about 0.0001% of the membership behind me, then! 

BTW, I would like to say that I do admire those models who tailor their post's contents according to forum.  It show's initiative.
