Christmas Shopping with a difference

Published: 8th Dec 2020

It’s that time of year again where we begin to feel the joy of Christmas – let the festivities begin! Thinking about those Christmas lights being lit down Oxford Street in London and of course, buying gifts for our nearest and dearest makes most of us excited. This year our celebrations might be set to look a little different but that’s not to say we can’t get our 2020 advent calendars, stockings and trusty Christmas tree out of the store cupboard ready for the winter holidays. 
Where would you usually head to when picking up all your Christmas essentials? It might be online or your local shopping centre but if you’re looking to get everything you need all under one roof, it could be somewhere further afield like Bluewater Shopping Centre based in Kent. And in case you don’t know, Models Direct has had the pleasure of having our fabulous junior models showcase their promotional talent at the shopping centre’s Christmas festivities.

Our Mighty Six Junior Models 

A magical schedule was in store for six of our junior modelsBreyton, Connor, Anna, Randy, Madison & Ibtisam, who were selected to promote the Christmas attractions at the shopping centre. Our models thoroughly enjoyed their time at the shopping centre from photos taken with Santa for Santa’s Grotto to ice-skating action on the ice rink to a 2-day photoshoot to create stills and a promotional video, our models were busy bees soaking in an enjoyable time. 

Let’s go ahead and share some feedback from our model’s families so you can have a read about how they got on: 

Anna shared her feedback with us:

“This is the first I time I have modelled for Models Direct and I really enjoyed it, I had so much fun both working and having fun!! The crew that was with me today were very friendly and patient and offered a lot of help. They were really kind and explained what we had to do really well so we felt comfortable. I met a lot of new friends and I hope to work with them again soon.”

Madison’s feedback was wonderful:

“Madison has had an amazing time doing the photoshoot today at Bluewater’s Shopping Centre having photos done with Santa by the Thanksgiving tree. All the children looked amazing in their Christmas jumpers supplied by the clients. Would like to thank Models Direct for all the communication and making this a fun experience for Madison, looking forward to next week.”

Randy’s feedback:

“It was great yesterday at the Bluewater Shopping Centre Christmas shoot. Thanks Models Direct for making this work for my son, you guys are great! Thanks Charlie for making it all happen – we are super grateful”

Breyton’s feedback can be found here:

“This was Breyton’s first photoshoot and it was for Bluewater Shopping Centre. Thank you Models Direct for putting him forward and to Charlie who was amazing with keeping us in the loop with all the details for the event. There were 3 other children (and their parents) at the shoot and it didn’t take long before the kids were chatting and giggling with one another and the parents doing likewise. Melanie and her team at Bluewater were fantastic and made the day a wonderful experience for the kids. Thank you. A gift and a cuddly reindeer from Santa and a hot chocolate after an ice skating session just added to a fabulous day. We cannot thank Models Direct enough for giving Breyton this opportunity and hope that this is just the start of more to come.”

Finally, we have some lovely videos for you to tuck into and see how our six models got on with their Christmas adventure. 

And that’s a wrap!
