Where our Angels get their wings
We've been in existence since 2012, and Mira 9 Group has been our resident model agency since 2013. Thanks to their outstanding professional services, we've been blessed enough to help first-timers and aspiring fashion models achieve their dreams of walking at prestigious fashion shows. Owner, Doug Carlson, gives 100% every day to helping everyone improve.
The division of M9 which we work with the most has to be Mira 9 Model Management. Doug has helped some of our Angels land commercials and walk at Cape Town Fashion Week (CTFW) - something they previously thought was impossible. His thorough understanding of the professional industry, coupled with his humble and genuine approach has been a winning combination through his career, both as a Photographer and a Model Manager.
While not everyone in our programme is out to make a career for themselves, some have sprung from our platform into mainstream modelling and we're always proud of that. The synergy between M9 and CAFB has always existed in the core value of enriching the lives of those who aspire to do and be better and greater each day. CAFB accepts everyone 16yrs and older into the modelling programme, and we really mean EVERYONE.
We really don't care about how much previous experience you've had, or which agency was crazy enough to say 'NO' - we're all about saying YES to a good time, learning new things every day and meeting people just as excited about life! We love the diversity in ethnicity, acumen, experience, geography and gender - it's what makes us who we are. Angels come in all shapes, sizes, colours, cultures and languages so why would we limit the opportunities we offer?
M9 and CAFB do have rules though. One of these is that there is no nudity at any of our group shoots or shows. The fashion designers we work with have their designs screened before shows, and on location at shoots.
Mira 9 offers comprehensive programmes in conjunction with the CAFB, as well as independently. Model screenings are held throughout the year for those wishing to learn about the industry in a safe and constructive environment. Well aware of global concerns surrounding the profession, Doug Carlson also offers assistance to CAFB models who wish to obtain paid bookings during any of the CAFB training programmes.
CAFB is often mistaken for a model agency, however we haven't yet jumped in to that arena. We rely on the trustworthy and dependable professional services of Mira 9 Model Management, to guide our model training programmes and events.
