This is a side of life the Burmese military junta might prefer you did not see: girls who appear to be 13 and 14 years old paraded in front of customers at a nightclub where a beauty contest thinly veils child prostitution. Tottering in stiletto heels and miniskirts, young teenage girls criss-crossed the dance-floor as part of a nightly "modelling" show at the Asia Entertainment City nightclub on a recent evening in Rangoon. Some girls stared at the floor while others tugged self-consciously on short hemlines, stretching the flimsy material a few centimetres longer as they catwalked awkwardly to the accompaniment of blasting hip-hop music. Watching these young entertainers of the "Cherry-Sexy Girls" model groups were a few male customers, and a far larger crowd of Burmese sex workers, mostly in their late teens and early 20s, who sat at low tables in the darkness of the club. Escorting several girls to a nearby table of young men, a waiter said the show was not so much modelling as marketing.
However, teen modeling is a great way to take your young, fresh look and turn it into a potentially lucrative career. Stepping into an adult world and career at a young age can present a lot of challenges; agents and photographers will expect you to take on responsibilities like an adult. Modeling as a teen can be a fantastic way to get an early start in the fashion industry and all of your hard work may result in a highly rewarding career in fashion! Here we cover brief information about how to become a teenage model with teen modeling tips. An adult guardian will have to sign all contracts as well as accompany you to any photo shoots.
