Models are the faces behind the fashion, inspiring people to buy from designers and creating the exposure that makes us love particular pieces. International supermodel Coco Rocha has designed Coco Rocha Model Camp (CRMC) to teach, inspire and empower models of any age to be their best, all while preparing them for a challenging career in the modelling industry.
Coco Rocha has been living her dream career in fashion for 18 years. Being on more covers than I can count, she has graced the world’s most influential magazines, brands and photographers, and is now using that knowledge to empower and teach young models. Despite having more than 17 million social media followers and paving the path for models having a digital presence, Coco has always stayed true to herself and believes that success does not need to come at the cost of sacrificing who you are and what your core values are.
“TRUE TO HER STYLE, COCO IS PRESENT FOR THE ENTIRE EXPERIENCE, AVAILABLE TO ANSWER QUESTIONS AND TRULY ALLOW A ONE-ON-ONE BOUTIQUE EXPERIENCE.”
With the development of Coco Rocha Model Camp (CRMC), models at any stage of their careers are taught to refine their posing and runway skills and to feel confident in their business decisions. True to her style, Coco is present for the entire experience, available to answer questions and truly allow a one-on-one boutique experience. Coco is an experienced mentor, having guest mentored on “America’s Next Top Model.” Famously nicknamed the “Queen of Pose” by her fans and contemporaries like Tyra Banks, Coco has the professionalism and experience to mentor her students like no other in the industry.
Over the four-day schedule, models participate in portfolio reviews, pose and runway classes, social media, branding seminars and a professional photo shoot. Teaching her models dynamic posing, social media strategy and negotiating with clients, among many other important skills for the industry, allows her students to leave with confidence and a unique set of skills to help them navigate the little-known and challenging career of international modelling.
