About “A Star Is Born!” group:
“A Star Is Born!” group was created to provide real runway show experience to newly graduated models to facilitate their development in their career.  The group is neither a model agency nor an academy.  After three shows, member models can still remain in the group but will be requested to take a senior position so that new models can have priority in castings.

“A Star Is Born!” group also has a policy to provide payment to all models that walk in its shows.

A New Group Dedicated To Assist New Starter Models Is Launched!

SECOND LIFE PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 29, 2012

Announcement:  Launch of a new group for promising starter models, “A Star Is Born!”

Kay Fairey announces today that she is launching a non-profit group that is dedicated to providing promising starter models with actual runway show experience to initiate their career start.

This group will be led by Kay Fairey and will admit a maximum of 20 new graduate students from any model academy in Second Life to provide real on-the-job runway show experiences which the members can list in their resume when applying for agency castings.  Kay stresses that the group is neither an academy nor an agency and will not be affiliated with any particular model academy.  All members will be asked to leave after they have three show experiences including shows by other groups in order to open their spots to newer graduates.  This activity will continue while Kay is able to provide this service.

Shows will be organized and run by Kay at runways that will be rented with the support of BLVD Agency under BOSL Organization, where Kay is currently CEO.  Blackbarbie Bravin and Wicca Merlin, who support this concept, have joined the group as Officers.

There will be a minimum payment made to all models which will be less than the market average for professional models but Kay stresses that she wants future top models to be accustomed to the idea of paid modeling jobs as she is also an avid promoter of paid shows.

Models spend a lot of money to style the given outfits so that they look good.  I think it is only fair that models get some payment even if they will usually spend more than they earn.  Free shows with no payments made to models are taking advantage of the money models pay out of their pockets to make the outfit and the agency look good and this is not fair to them.

The way new graduate students are invited to this group may change in the future but for now only those who have been recommended by various modeling academies will be invited to the group to make sure the promising future top models get priority in taking advantage of this system.

A separate letter will be sent out soon to modeling academy Owners and Directors.

A special thanks goes to Mr. Frolic Mills of BOSL Organization for supporting this concept and allowing this group to use his runways as show venues.
