LMA Fashion School

Maria Kovalets

In February of 2007 on St-Petersburg MTV channel there was a casting for girls who wished to take part in TV partner project of LMA and MTV - «Fashion School». I was just 13 years old and my height was 173 cm - not what was needed. But pulled myself together and dialed a telephone number. I forgot everything that was told via telephone because of my fear and called one more time.

On 3rd of March I was standing in my mother’s shoes in the line among 800 girls to participate in casting in LMA agency. On the second day 150 girls were left and only 10 models were allowed to participate in the project, however, despite the rules, 11 girls were chosen.

My first catwalk was during the project, even though defile class was not finished, moreover I was the one who opened the show of Elena Badmaeva. I was terrified! In the frame of project was a photoshoot for Sobaka.ru magazine. It was long time ago, but I still work in LMA. I don’t regret anything, modelling has become for me the biggest interest in my life and LMA has become my family.

I can directly say that I gerw up in LMA.


I was just 13 years old and my height was 173 cm - not what was needed. But pulled myself together and dialed a telephone number


During the time I was working in LMA I collected a number of contacts and created my own base, that’s why top manager of LMA - Alexander Nagorny offered me to organize photoshoots for models. Since then I produce almost all the photoshoots for LMA, but I’m not going to finish my modelling career. For now I can combine my calasses at the university, modelling and photoshoots’ producing.

People ask me everytime, why for the long years of working in LMA I didn’t go abroad. There were a few reasons: in the beggining I was too young, then it was styding at school and passing exams, then administrative work in LMA and university. Always, there were some reasons, that didn’t allowed me to go away, however I decided to continue my career abroad and I took academic holidays. In December 2012 I’m going to work in Asia for 6 months. Wish me luck, I have so much experience behind my back, but I’m still nervous like during my first casting.

Vasilisa Nikiforovskaya

Hello! My name is Vasilisa, I’m 19 years old and I work as a model plus size in LMA agency. No one ever told me: «You have a model appearence, go and try yourself in it, you’ll have a success!», other way around, as a rule, I heard something like: «Hm, Vasia, you need to loose weight» or «You are big, probably, you eat a lot, don’t you?». Such statements hurt self-confidence.

Well, my attitude to my appearence was not the best one. All the word attacks have not breaken me. I had an air-vent, that helped me to loose my self-unconfidence - it was a stage, I got used to it in my musical school. However, my studies there were finished and self-unconfidence came back to me, and I got to know with the world of bright photolights.

As Sergey, founder of LMA agency, says, chance manages the world of modelling, so my first photoshoot was a fortuity. Everything went well and the feeling of euphoria covered me to the top of my head. This photoshoot was only for creative needs of photographer, bu I din’t care a lot. I fell in love with this world. After some time, I started to be interested how to develop myself and try to get into the world of fashion and advertisement. I sent my photos to the LMA web-site.


No one ever told me: «You have a model appearence, go and try yourself in it, you’ll have a success!», other way around, as a rule, I heard something like: «Hm, Vasia, you need to loose weight» or «You are big, probably, you eat a lot, don’t you?»


I almost forgot that I did it, when suddenly I got a call and was invited to casting. Oh, how I was nervous, I was waiting for decision that determined my destiny.

I was invited in Fashion School, and I have to notice, that it is not cheap at all, moreover it doesn’t garantee the contract with the agency, but I had to give an answer. I wanted to be a little bit more in this attracting atmosphere of gloss. I said «yes» and agreed with all the conditions.

At that point of time, I understood that i have to work, I have to catch every word of professors and take them ino account, I have to demonstrate myself and my abilities in any case, and do not seat in the corner. All in all, I got that people are eveluated not only during the exam.

On the first day of classes, Dina Krumer - booker of the agency, has noticed me, a wonderful prson, who gave me averything that I needed - self-confidence, especialy it was important because I was surrounded by beautiful girls with the long legs. Thanks to her I came to the finish line.

The prom was unforgettable, I think it was the first event of such type when I was almost crying.

I was waiting for this moment, I dreamed about it when I get a certificate and portfolio. And here it comes, I got a news that agency wants to sign a contract with me. I was excited! And what was then? Afterwards castins, castings, castings, work, photoshoots, catwalks, castings... I was pleased by every second that I spent in front of viewers.

Violetta Nikolaeva

I have never thought that I will become a model and actually I didn’t like to be photographed. I was always irritated by my thinness and high height. One day, when I came home after school, I switched on MTV channel and saw an advertisement, that was about a casting for Fashion School project.

Immediately I called my mom and asked her to call there. She signed me to casting and told me that I need to have high heel shoes and a short skirt.

I was just 13 years old and loved to communicate only with the boys, so I didn’t have shoes or skirt. I asked my classmate for heels and found a funny violet dress in my wardrobe, I was nervous and I even don’t remember my first meeting in model agency. There were so many girls with different height and weight, a lot of people and cameras. Somebody came to me and said «it’s a secret but don’t worry, you are already in»


Only 11 girls were chosen from Saint-Petersburg, and I was one of them! For two and a half months we tought modelling art. It was too hard for me and I didn’t believe that I can achieve something


I couldn’t believe that only 11 girls were chosen from Saint-Petersburg, and I was one of them! For two and a half months we tought modelling art. It was too hard for me and I didn’t believe that I can achieve something. The hardest class for me was defile and how to move properly. I was like a wood.

A huge thanks to all the specialists of LMA agency, for the knowledge and skills that I learned for those two and a half months. Fashion School Project developed a character in myself, it learned me hot to love myself, how to hide drowbacks and show my best sides

I was going to school and work as a model - it was wonderful to have time for everything!

After the project I was offered to try myself on international model market. My first international contract was with HongKong Model Management agency. In Hong-Kong z worked for three months and got a lot of experience - photoshoots in magazines, participation in fashion weeks.

Now, I’m 20 years old, I combine my studies with my favorite job. I adore photoshoots, catwalks and alll the chaos on the backstage of shows. During my work in LMA agency I took part in Maison Margiela, Bernhard Willhelm, Gaspard Yurkievich, Pinko, Custo Barcelona, HOMO CONSOMMATUS, Leonid Alexeev, Chari, Houida Haute Couture and other shows, I can’t even keep everything in my mind.

Yulia Vlasenko

Modelling story of my life has started when I was in 9th grade of high school in Severomorsk city. I went to the House of Art for children and teenagers in theatre of fashion «Exclusive».

I learned such disciplines as defile, make-up, sense of rhythm, sewing, every spring we took part in a competition “Namodnenie”, where we created a real Fashion Show. Since then I got a thought about becoming a model for the first time. I’ve started to work as a model when I was 18 years old and was studying in St-Petersburg.

From the beginning LMA agency was for me a dream, but all the dreams come true.

After my graduation from the Fashion School I did my first season in St-Petersburg. It was the first victory on my career path. Quantity and level of work was growing gradually, afterwards I worked in Moscow, but I didn’t get any offers from abroad.

I’m very sensitive and intuitive person to myself and to others. The feeling that I have to move forward, go to another step pushed me to the TMPR casting. And I didn’t make a mistake.


Reality show was a next step with some tests and environment of another level. This project was a great experience for me


Reality show was a next step with some tests and environment of another level. This project was a great experience for me. During some photoshoots I had to change myself inside of me and it is the hardest thing for every person. To be honest, I didn’t get rid of all my freights and complexes, but the main thing is that I started the process of work with the feelings inside of me. That was my second victory for myself.

After all of the tests, realizing some things and holidays, I started a new rise to the international hills of model business that I dreamed about. I was in Indonesia for 4 months and now Im in Thailand.

I live my life, do my favorite job, sports, dancing, eat only healthy food, develop myself and give happiness and motivate other people. I do not plan anything and do not expect any results, a desire of something will not drive me to my dream, that what I know for sure. I try to do my best for sure and I expect something, but the main thing I’m not attached to concrete result, because I know that money, contracts, success and love will come just in time, when I’ll deserve it. When will it be? I decide!

That’s the story for now, I wish happiness, health and love!
