A large chunk of the population believes that the fashion industry is all about glamour. The fashion industry merely seems like a game of good looks, and the general perception that any eye candy can be part of fashion and modeling. However, while many people think that the life of a model might be glitzy all the time, the reality is quite different, and they fail to notice that even in the fashion industry, success cannot be achieved without the ultimate cliché, hard work.
Being a top-notch model requires loads of patience as well. Like any other industry, success is not simply handed over to stars and models either.
