From the likes of Twiggy back in the swinging 60s to Lily-Rose Depp in more modern times, there has always been work for shorter models with narrow frames.

And now, more than ever, this is the case.

As fashion labels and high street stores have increasingly focused on collections for petite women, so the need for models to promote these clothing ranges has grown.


Great fun today at my photo shoot for Newbury Racecourse arranged by Models Direct. Molly let me know of everything I needed to bring in advance and the shoot went really well. We were a wedding party to promote the course wedding events and we posed on the track, in the stands and in the function room. Great company from the other models, supper client who knew exactly what they were looking for and made the whole shoot very relaxed. Really good day and I look forward to the next one!

Petite models might be required for photographic shoots, television advertising campaigns or even catwalk work.

And as the fashion industry starts addressing the physiques of smaller men in a more focused way too, so the need for shorter men is also increasing.

Here at Models Direct we may be required to place both male models and female models who are petite.


Another fantastic day with cheeky Communication at The Garden House in Tunbridge Wells shooting a video for Omron. This is my 3rd assignment with this lovely team and I always feel so welcome. The team are all really friendly but professional and always make me very welcome. The video shoot took place at The Garden House, which is a beautiful big house with amazing landscape and is such a beautiful house. I’m really enjoying my assignments with Models Direct and Molly Robinson always does a fantastic job of organizing the assignment and keeping me informed. Thank you Molly and Models Direct.
