Fashion Modelling is considered to have originated in the mid-
nineteen century in Paris. The first ever fashion model is believed to
be Marie Vernet Worth in 1892 who was married to fashion designer
Charles Worth. The trend towards fashion modelling did not seem to
increase immensely considering the success of the Worth’s. This was
mainly due to the fact that models in the early 20th century were
not seen as respected individuals and were not considered to have
an acceptable profession. However, this view in society began to
change in 1924 when Jean Patou selected only American white
woman to model his clothes. This use of selectiveness allowed Patou’
s clients to identify more with his designs but more importantly
allowed the model profession to become more socially acceptable
in those less politically correct times. The openings of the first
modelling agencies in London and the US shortly after further
emphasized the acceptance of modelling as an appropriate job
within society. At this time model types were also evolving and it
was not just the typical tall and slender models that were being

Models started to develop into super models where they received
incredible amounts of money. For example, Lisa Fossagrives, who
some people claim as the first ever supermodel, appeared in
numerous high fashion magazines throughout the 1930s, 1940s and
1950s. Janice Dickinson in the 1960s who is more widely respected as
the first ever supermodel became the highest paid model, earning
$2,000 per day. She was on the cover of several European
magazines including Vogue and Cosmopolitan that were also well
established fashion magazines. During the 1960s and the 1970s more
and more supermodels became apparent due to their growing
popularity with society. Namely – Twiggy (London – born) and Cheryl
Tiegs (Minnesota).

The prominence of the supermodel era continued to grow well into
the 1980s and 1990s with models such as Claudia Schiffer, Elle
Macpherson, Cindy Crawford, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell.
Men also got their turn, with the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Joel West
and Markus Schenkenberg, who was hailed as the world´s first male
supermodel, becoming household names. All of these models
became the elite in the modelling industry and to some extent still
Let there be fashion, just fashion someone once said. DaJon Johnson spends a lot of time working on his
craft. He should, because by the time he's twenty-five he should have made a name for himself. If not, then
his clothing will speak volumes and echo his name for years to come. But there's one thing to think about
and that's the competition. So how does a young designer cope? Design, sow and repeat, then do a show
because in the end it doesn't matter if people aren't buying. You're not staying current, trendy or setting the
bar high enough that people will never forget. But for this young designer, how can you forget when you
take one look at what he's creating? The beauty, the color, the shapes and the sizes that are custom one of
a kind made specifically for you and your tastes. His stunning gowns capture your imagination and pull you
in, then you know you’re fabulous! If you walk the red carpet or just down the street, his designs will stop
everyone right in their tracks.
