Where do I find the model application form?
To find the model application form, you will need to sign up for our newsletter. The application will be at the end of the first email you receive. The first email should arrive in your inbox a few hours after you sign up.
How can I sign up for your newsletter?
You can sign up to our newsletter either through the pop-up that will show up when you come to our site or by scrolling to the bottom of our site and finding the "Subscribe to our Newsletter".
How do I know my application has been reviewed?
Our team is currently working around the clock to review as many applications as possible, we have received a tremendous amount of interest and are working as quickly as possible. Please note that all applications will be viewed and that we are looking to cast models for immediate projects as well as future ones for all of 2021.
How are you guys ensuring COVID guidelines for in-person go-sees?
Upon entering our building all guests must have their temperature taken in the lobby. All team members and models must be wearing a face mask at all times. We also have hand sanitizer readily available.
How can I stand out and have my application seen faster?
-Tag us @akingsny in your AKINGS fits! If you already own pieces from us, tagging us in photos/ videos of you in our pieces will help give us a better idea of how our clothing fits on you!
If you're looking to start wearing AKINGS, we strongly recommend checking out our Gift Guide for great everyday pieces. To view the entire collection, click here.
What if I'm not from New York City?
You can still apply whether you're based in New York City or not! Although we won't be able to schedule an in-person go-see for you, our team can reach out to you and provide another way of taking part in the casting process.
I haven't heard back and it's been a while... does that mean I'm disqualified?
This model search is an ongoing process that will be for immediate projects as well as future projects. If you were not reached out to this time around for a specific project, we will still have your information and could reach out to you for a future project that you would be a better fit for.
What happens during a go-see?
After applying through our model application, if we see that you are a potential fit, you will receive a model go-see request in your email or instagram inbox. This is an invitation we send to applicants that we are interested in seeing in person. Think of this like a job interview, except a lot more fun and you get to wear amazing looking clothes.
What are the requirements?
You must be 18+ to apply but besides that, there are no other requirements! We are looking for all ethnicities, genders, heights, and sizes.
You do not need any prior modeling experience for this opportunity.
How can I expedite my application?
Customers may qualify to have your application expedited! Reach out to your representative or reply back to your most recent order confirmation email. ;)
