Fashion Week Facts: How to Walk the Runway like a Supermodel
Posted Tuesday February 19, 2013 10:04 AM GMT
Have you ever wondered what it takes to strut down the catwalk? DIY Fashion went behind the scenes at a New York Fashion Week model casting to find out.
We caught up with Nadia, a runway model with plenty of experience strutting her stuff. First off, “you need to make sure you have good posture,” she says. That means, “Shoulders straight, pulled back, but not too far.”
Next, Nadia advises finding a focus point. “You don’t want to be all over the place,” she warns. And most importantly, walking is about self-awareness. “You just have to learn a lot about your body — the way your hips move, your arms move and just make sure it’s all comfortable.”
