With the introduction of a genuine initiative by the fashion brand like MAX and Elite Model Look, Paris, it will provide an opportunity to aspiring young male and female models”

It gives every girl and boy across the globe a chance to meet experienced people in the industry and have their chance to shine and possibly change their lives. It’s the biggest opportunity being offered, the chance to work internationally and the chance to become a top supermodel”.
