VoyageMIA : Meet Lola Chél
Today we’d like to introduce you to Lola Chél.
Lola, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
As far as modeling, I got started in college. While attending Florida International University, I joined a Modeling troop called Eclipse Fashion Society where I learned all the basics when it came to runway modeling and my modeling skills.
From there, I branched out as a freelance model. I set up my own shoots, played around with concepts and worked with various photographers, makeup artist, designer‘s, and brands. After I had built up my portfolio a bit and secured some very nice digitals, I applied to agencies. I got excepted to one, and it began a snowball effect.
Now I’m currently represented by over ten agencies (nonexclusively) throughout Florida and New York. Outside of the agencies, I have also built up my social media presence to create demand for my look. Now I book just as big of clients independently as I have with my agencies. This growth has been so amazing that I had begun to show others how to create their successful personal modeling brands.
Now I am the proud author of an e-book “A stride to the bank: how to make your first $1,000 dollars as a model”, I have my own high-heel line called Modele Heels, and I’m building a virtual modeling class that should be ready to launch this year.
