Understanding Categories

We have divided the categories on the basis of how the fashion, advertising and modelling industry looks at hiring talent. This categorisation is to help you understand and pick a niche based on your interests and strengths, and to help you get noticed and established easily. There are 4 main categories. And 5 sub-categories. It is important that you chose one main category to compete. Some of you may also chose a sub-category that better represents you and helps you connect and network with like-minded people.

Please go through the FAQs if you have any doubts about how to register. Or you can get in touch with the A-Team through a DM on our Instagram for any clarifications on selection of a suitable category for you. After your application is submitted, we will review your application, and you will be able to move to a different category if required. So it is okay if you are unsure of a category at this stage.

Sub-Categories

Truly Inclusive

Asoty is committed to True Inclusiveness. We believe in inclusiveness that represents people of all colours, people of all sizes, people of all faiths & people with different or even conflicting views. Our aim is to create a community that understands, respects and enables a free and fair opportunity for everyone.

CURVE

If you find it difficult to fit into most of the designer stuff or ready-to-wear brands, you are not alone. The demand for Curve Models is growing but it is still a long way from becoming a mainstream category in boutiques and departmental stores. ASOTY was one of the first organisations to showcase and represent Curve models years before other agencies and brands took notice. And we continue to believe in curve beauty.

INDIGENOUS

“We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we are meeting. We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present, and emerging, as well as the indigenous Elders of other communities who maybe here today”.

Equal and fair opportunities & representation for all is our dream. This category recognises and acknowledges the Traditional Owners and welcomes them into the ASOTY Community. We hope this will become a platform to promote and support indigenous talent.

Everyone has their own perspective of what Modest Fashion means to them. Halima Aden is what comes to our mind when we talk about Modest Modelling. We are looking for faces that can take our journey into True Inclusiveness, further.

PETITE

A petite model generally measures between 158cms and 168 cms. Hips, waist and sizes are also smaller than an average size model. If you’ve felt too short to model and small or unseen, this is your platform.

STREET

If you’re not mainstream and live to the beat of your own drum then this category is for you. Those who express themselves through tattoos, hair colour, fashion, etc and aim to be unique inside and out. If you’ve ever had an interest in modelling and been told to tone it down, this category is for you.

FITNESS

If you are you 100 percent committed to physical fitness and living a healthy lifestyle, then you might just have what it takes to become a fitness model. Sometimes referred to as sports modelling, Fitness Modelling is a highly competitive industry that takes hard work and dedication. The great thing about fitness modeling is that the physical requirements aren’t as strict as other modeling niches, such as fashion and runway. No minimum height requirements.

READ MORE

Please select a mainstream category first. The Sub-Categories are not competitive but make it easier for models to identify and connect with a like-minded group. Please read the FAQs or get in touch with us if you have any more questions. 

We encourage everyone to pick a main category, and then chose a sub-category, if required. True Inclusiveness means that everyone should be able to work and compete in the same space. This is the only way to bring everyone together.
