Your fledgling modeling agency has just been given a remarkable opportunity: the chance to represent the most successful runway models for the Spring/Summer 2017 runway season. After months of scouting, fashion week is nearly upon us and the time to finalize your runway roster is approaching rapidly.
As an agent, you must select 18 models to represent your agency on the runway. For every show one of your signed models walks in, you will be paid a designated amount, depending on the caliber and prestige of the show.
Essentially, the agency with the most money at the end of fashion week wins.
Agents should periodically update the thread with posted images from vogue.com of their models recent shows throughout fashion week, in addition to updating their overall earnings.
In order to keep the game competitive and ensure that the teams are more equal, we've decided to bring back the chipping system with a new twist:
Your team of 18 girls will comprised of three girls from three categories of models.
4 Catwalk Queens
6 Rising Muses
8 Fresh Faces
Anna Mila Guyenz
Frederikke Sofie Falbe
Lululeika Ravn Liep
Rianne van Rompaey
Vera van Erp
Any model who is not
on the above lists!
But not so fast - did you think we'd let you just chose who you want? That'd be too easy....
In order to select your team, you must fill out this form of models in order of preference.
This season you will be guaranteed your first TWO catwalk queens, TWO muses, and FOUR fresh faces, so choose wisely! Once your first 8 models have been assigned, we will randomly select an order for agents and go through each list, assigning models in order of preference.
But - a model can only be shared by THREE to FIVE agencies MAX (depending on how many sign up), so if you really want a certain girl, make sure to put her HIGH on your preference list to increase the odds of getting her! This overlap limit will not apply for the models in your guaranteed slots.
*The randomization process will be CLEARLY recorded for fairness!*
Back this season is the Exclusivity Contract. When an Exclusivity Contract is invoked on a model, she can no longer be signed by any other agencies from that point onwards! Note that this does NOT affect agencies that already have already signed her before the contract was invoked - they still get to keep her. So if you have a model that is snatching bookings left and right, and you don’t want other agencies to grab her - you can invoke an Exclusivity Contract on her.
However, this comes at a price! It will cost you 5% of that model’s TOTAL EARNINGS (all cities) at the end of the game. Also, each player can only invoke ONE Exclusivity Contract per season.
You will be able to trade up to FOUR models during the game, and those swaps can be made whenever you want, but will not go into effect until the following fashion week city.
For example, if I decide that one of my girls is FLOPPING, and I decide to drop her during London Fashion Week, the swap will not go into effect until MILAN starts.
Obviously, once the following fashion week starts, you will no longer earn money from the girls you drop, and you will begin earning money from the new girls you sign.
The price of swapping a girl changes depends on when you want them to go into effect.
If you submit your swap before New York: $12,000.00
If you submit your swap during New York: $10,000.00
If you submit your swap during London: $8,000.00
If you submit your swap during Milan: $8,000.00
If four agencies have already signed a certain model, you are not allowed to swap for her.
If a model is not initially signed on any agents' original roster, she can only be signed by up to TWO agents throughout the game (via swapping). These girls will be awarded on a first come first serve basis, so if you see a BREAKOUT STAR, make sure you sign her quickly!
*THE GAME IS A PRETTY BIG COMMITMENT, YOU'LL BE REQUIRED TO UPDATE YOUR MODEL TALLIES ALMOST DAILY, SO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE TIME AND WILLINGNESS TO LAST THE WHOLE SEASON BEFORE SIGNING UP!*
DON'T FORGET TO FILL OUT THE FORM ABOVE FOR TEAM SELECTION SINCE NEW YORK FASHION WEEK IS FAST APPROACHING! THE DEADLINE FOR SIGNING UP IS SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 4th!
