Bristol, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 06, 2009 -- When Kodou Akinkunle from West Sussex decided to register her four year old daughter Yassin to work as a model [http://www.modelsdirect.com/ourmodelssay-select.html], little did she expect that just a week later Yassin would be on set wearing designer clothes, making new friends - and eating ice cream!
The photo shoot was for Vintage Kit, a children's clothing company that makes vintage-inspired clothes for parents who âwant their children to still be children in our fast modern world.â
When the team at Vintage Kit wanted to find models to show off their new collection for their website and publicity material they went to Models Direct, one of the UK's largest modelling agencies. Kodou had signed Yassin up with Models Direct just a week before the shoot, which took place at the beach in Brighton.
According to proud mum Kodou, Yassin really enjoyed beginning her modelling career. âShe was asked to play with fellow models, pose in the sea and also eat an ice cream whilst wearing one of the outfits,â she said. âThe experience you get is unforgettable, it was amazing and she was comfortable in front of the camera.â
Managing Director of Models Direct Damian O'Connor was also very pleased with the shoot.
âWe were very happy to help Vintage Kit to fill their brief, they are a fantastic client to work for,â said O'Connor. âI think their products are great, so when they came to us to find kids to appear in the shoot, we were very happy to find models that were perfect for the job. Initially Vintage Kit asked for two models, but in the end they needed six. Luckily, we have a very large number of models on our books so we were able to provide exactly what they needed.â
Vintage Kit specialises in hand drawn prints, handmade and luxury clothes, using as much as possible 100% cottons and eco-friendly fabrics from the United Kingdom. Their clothes are soft, cuddly and comfortable but also highly creative and individual.
