France could be called one of the biggest modeling markets. All the best known fashion brands are coming from here and have their offices in France. Models are coming and leaving every day here. Agencies are opening and closing. Modeling market is alive in France during all the year, except it has vacation from the end of July to the end of August. Most the bigger jobs for models are based in Paris, so even though it’s a highly competitive market - there are many jobs to take for models. Among the huge amount of models in every season, French market is keeping the same style for quite a long time now. Models are very skinny and totally natural. No makeup is allowed here and sometimes very interesting faces could be extremely successful. France is a great market for top models as they can get highly paid jobs here, but it could be a great start market for beginners as well. Sometimes new faces can be discovered and developed quickly here. French modeling market is also famous for the extremely natural tests which are sometimes almost the same as good polaroids, however the natural style is loved in Paris and a simple non-retouched test photo can open many doors here, even to the highest level clients.
There are all major networks in France like IMG, Next, Women and some smaller, but exceedingly strong, agencies in France like Viva and Metropolitan.
We try to keep this list fresh, updated and verified. Last time we checked and evaluated the french agencies on 05.2012. We keep the list of agencies who stopped working in France also. This we do for the informational purposes.
