Behind the Scenes :: Elmer Olsen’s Bootcamp 2 Bigtime

Hi everybody,We’ve got something pretty exciting to share with you on the blog today!

Last week, I was very lucky to get the opportunity to be backstage at Elmer Olsen Model Management’s annual “Bootcamp 2 Bigtime” event!
I think it’s pretty safe to say that fashion is something we inevitably cannot avoid. It’s everywhere whether it’s on the red carpet, on the streets, on runways, or on blogs. But sometimes we forget the people behind it. No, not the designers, even though they play a massive role. No, I’m talking about the models. Models play a huge part in the fashion industry because they are like the mediums of fashion. Without them, fashion is left in the ateliers of the designer houses.Elmer Olsen Model Management is one of the top modelling agencies in Toronto where Elmer Olsen himself hand picks each individual models. Every year, the agency holds a 2 day event called “Bootcamp 2 Bigtime” where new models are put through a course to know the ins and outs of pursuing a model career. The most exciting part of this experience is that they also get the chance to meet with international agencies from Tokyo, New York, Paris, Munich, London, and Milan so representatives can scout and sign with these new models hoping to take them to the international stage!
Thanks for reading!
Till next time,


  1. Woah, this is very cool. It’s always interesting to see the process of these things, and even better to learn about the people involved in them. I think that’s one of the reasons why I love the show Project Runway so much ( do you know it? (: ) – it’s awesome that they incorporate the models into it as well.
    Anyways, great post!
