The answer to the title is no lol. They may give you a gift for participating in the show (Fendi gave customised handbags once) but you would never be able to keep the clothes used on the runway and usually never get to keep clothes from shoots as they are usually owned by the PR company of the designer. With runway clothes the pieces in the show are often the only one of the look made at the time and if its courutre then obviously it is one of a kind and very expensive. However, stuff in New York, approved if you do a show they often pay you in clothes from their previous collection; this is called trade. When I went to the fitting for one of the shows I have today, price Creatures of Comfort, they allowed me to pick five items from their Spring/Summer collection which was great. I love when I get paid in trade and the designers clothes are actually wearable and nice! I selected a jersey tee, some jersey trouser type things, a white shirt, some sheer black trousers and my favourite, a pair of satin purple trousers. I got to pick off of three racks of clothes and it was on a first come first serve basis so models who had a late fitting will have to pick from whatever is left haha.

DSC07633 copy 20130208-081546.jpg Fashion week has just begun but that doesn't mean that I know what shows I will be doing for the next week; there is still a long process that will lead up to whether I get confirmed or not. Once I've done the initial casting for the show the casting director and designer may request a call back where they have cut down the amount of girls they wish to see. This may happen several times until they are sure or nearly sure of who they want to be in their show. They will then put what is called an option on the girls they feel could be in the show. They can apply a first, cure second or even third option on a model with first being the strongest. If they aren't 100% on a girl they will arrange a fit to confirm where the girl will try on a look from the show so the designer can see whether they feel the girl will fit in the show. If they do then they will confirm the girl, prostate if not then they will drop the option effectively cancelling the girl. If a girl gets confirmed then they will have a proper fitting for the show where they will have an outfit selected for them and altered to fit them properly. This usually happens a few days or the day before the show. However, you can never be 100% sure you've got the show even after all of this- girls have been known to be removed from the line up just before going on to the runway!
