Fashion models salaries seems to be one of those situations that most people are surprised to find out that some people actually make a lot of money. For instance, I know many business owners that make less than $100,000 a year. Some of them don’t even have to work a full-time job – many of them just own a business, so they just start charging less for the luxury of having no job.
This is what I call the “affluenza fallacy.” It’s a fallacy that says that if you earn more than you spend, then you should be able to buy a brand-new, expensive, expensive car, drive that brand-new, expensive, expensive car, and spend your money on that brand-new, expensive, expensive car.
So if you earn more than you spend, then you should be able to buy a brand-new, expensive, expensive car, drive that brand-new, expensive, expensive car, and spend your money on that brand-new, expensive, expensive car.
This is a false assumption that has been around since the dawn of time. It seems to be the excuse people use to justify not spending more money than they make. It is important to understand your spending habits and income. If you get a check for $10,000 and spend $500 on a $10,000 item, you’re not spending more than you make. If you have a $1000 bill, you are spending more than your $1000.
There is no such thing as a “brand-new, expensive, expensive car.” You can’t get a Mercedes E 62 AMG. You can’t get a BMW M3. Or a Honda Accord. And that’s not to say you don’t have to spend money on cars. Its a statement that you can’t buy a BMW from a car dealership. Or a Mercedes from a dealership, for that matter.
It’s a common enough point in conversation with people who work in the fashion industry. The only problem is that we are so used to this idea that it’s almost never addressed.
Its actually a very common point of discussion in the fashion industry. A big reason why is because in the past, the designers who worked outside of their studios were called fashion models. That is, they were the girls who modeled for magazines and billboards. They were the ones who kept the catwalks and the models in the studios. The reason why we say that they are not models is because they are not models.
Not that we’re suggesting that the fashion models are not models. But they are definitely not models. They work for a living. The fact that they are paid as models is not an indication that they are models. They are merely hired models. This is not a problem for us. We merely make it a point to point out that we are very aware of this.
We are very aware of this. Because we have a very clear mission here at Arkane Studios. That is to make the world a better place. To make life better for people who are not models or who are not models but who have no idea they are models. And to make such models pay a living wage, so that they do not need to live in a hotel or in a mansion.
So here’s the thing. I have a problem with the term “model.” I’m not a model. But I’m a model and I’m not a model. This is very clear to me in my work, and I can tell you that is the reason I am often asked to do a model’s make-up or fashion for an event. Not because I am a model, but I know that I am a model.
