Sylvia Holla gives an elaborate account of what working as a fashion model entails and provides an inside view into the field of fashion modelling and the working lives of fashion models in particular. She addresses the basic question of what it is that male and female fashion models actually do during their work, and accordingly, how labour conditions impact how models experience their work.
