Veronica Farren's Modeling Journey in China!

Hi Everyone!

This is the first entry of a blog by Veronica Farren of Chelmsford, MA, our first fashion model to journey to China for three months via the ABMG China Model Project!

Dear AsianBoston,


My adventure is going wonderfully! Things are already so busy here. We get up first thing in the morning and go to castings all day :) But hey, that's what I'm here for! I am having the time of my life. Thank you again ABMG for this wonderful opportunity.

June 1st:

My name is Veronica Farren. I'm an American fashion model from Boston, Massachusetts, who was just sent over to Shanghai by AsianBoston Media Group!

A few months ago, I began the exciting process of ordering my passport, getting my visa, determining and organizing everything I thought I would need to have in a new country...and now I'm here in China! And wow- Shanghai is a non-stop party.

Not many people speak English here aside from the models, but everybody is really sweet and welcoming and celebratory. China is a magical place with a beautiful culture and great parties. My agency here is the best group of people I could have imagined working with! Greemy, Julie, Vincent, Maybe, and Melissa are our bookers. They work to secure us jobs, find us castings to go to, and come with us to help navigate through our list of casting calls.

The agency has two model apartments: One is the home to Maya and Tanya from Russia, Norbert from Hungary, and Evengy from Ukraine. I share my apartment with Martyna from Lithuania, and Tatianna and Yana from Russia. I have my own room for now, but in a few weeks, a Lithuanian girl named Emilja will be moving into my top bunk. My childhood dreams of having bunk beds is coming to life! That and modeling...

I started working right away- my first job was just three days after my arrival: swimsuit: very fun gig, they had two above-ground pools set up with a runway stage and along with a male model from Ukraine named Jason, and two beautiful Chinese models. I did two sets of walking on the platform and one set posing in the pool each day. It was a great gig, and a cool experience working with other models from different areas of the world.

I've noticed that the models from other countries have dramatically different styles of modeling, so I am learning a great variety of new poses, walks, and definitely becoming a more well-rounded model. Chinese poses are very cute, delicate, and sweet, compared to the more direct, high-fashion German styles. I'm also learning some important vocabulary in a plethora of languages!

Hair Stylists and MUA's Needed For Benefit Fashion Show!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Maggie Li from AsianBoston Media Group (ABMG). We are partnering with a non-profit organization, Asian Women for Health, to hold a benefit fashion show featuring and empowering Asian cancer survivors on Friday, Oct 4...from 7pm-10pm.

This event coincides with Boston Fashion Week and will take place at Dance Union (16 Bow Street, Somerville, MA), home to the Tango Society of Boston.
Fifteen Asian cancer survivors will model the creations of leading Asian designers including Avni Trivedi, Anh Vu Sawyer, Shelley Chhbra, Vienne Cheung and Q.J. Shi.

We need several makeup artists and hairdressers to help with the event that day from 5-9pm. Our hope is to make this event a great success so it will become our annual signature fundraiser and we plan to promote it via both mainstream and Asian media outlets.

Please contact me at maggie@asianboston.com or 617.275.4249, if interested.

It is my hope that you are interested in helping us out.

Best regards,
