In the modeling industry, runway models have always been associated with high fashion. As a whole, runway models tend to be tall, slim, and stylish. While the fashion industry is forever changing, many runway models have gotten their big break on the catwalk. Runway modeling is a beautiful collaboration of art, movement, and design and requires that models are confident, bold, and fierce on the runway.
