The different clothing and apparel stores look for models who have a persona and who can impress customers and coax them to buy the outfits. Stores look for models who have a mature look that appeals to the client. The appearance should be impactful yet simple so that the buyers can relate to the store models. If you are applying for the position of a store model, try to carry your natural look. Makeup should be just as required. Pick the outfit of the brands that sell in the store and suits you well. This will give the brand owner an impression that you know about the brand. It is sure to increase your chances of getting hired.
