From C+C -- Though Cynthia Bailey is currently best known for her role on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, she was a model long before that, strutting on the catwalks in countries all over the globe. She is capitalizing on her new fame and success by opening her very own fashion school, The Bailey Agency.

Blogger Tami Reed of Talking With Tami attended the launch party of the new school with the rest of the Housewives cast, designer Mychael Knight and many more.

At the school, intense six-week long courses will be given on subjects including improving your runway walk, etiquette, posing, photography, make-up, production and so much more. Cynthia’s colleague, Marcus Jackson of CALIBER Enterprises (a fashion, event and talent management consulting company) will also be teaching classes.

Visit The Bailey Agency’s Twitter page for more information.

What do you think of Cynthia Bailey’s new fashion school? Are you interested in attending and learning from her?

    Great idea…I think all girls should have some type of etiquette training.
    Ive had some classes and they have helped :)
    Good luck2 her

    This is great! I wonder if its geared more for young girls or women? I took modeling and etiquette classes as a child for several years and I am beyond grateful for them!

  • Trina

    This is a wonderful idea. I’ve watched ANTM since the first season, and the models don’t have any training as far as walking the catwalk, proper attire for go-sees, hair, make-up, mannerism. Why hadn’t anyone thought of this sooner??

    Wonderful and much needed!

    “Why hadn’t anyone thought of this sooner?” They did! Modeling/Fashion Schools have been around since the dawn of time. Schools such as Barbizon, John Robert Powers have been making bucks off the dreams of youthful hopefuls for decades. They lure kids and parents in with the promise of success to the tune of editorial magazines and runways in Milan. In the past, they would advertise in the back of teen magazines targeting girls who truly want to be a “supermodel.”

    These schools are SCAMS. Models don’t utilize “schools” to become a model. It isn’t acting. You either have it or you don’t. Sure these schools could possibly offer refinement but a career in modeling is far from the truth. Also in small towns where there isn’t a market, “agencies” incorporate these “modeling schools” to make bucks where their clients are hardly bringing in $100. I know this RHOA knows the ins-and-outs of the business and God dangit I love her but I hope she won’t sell any empty promises with this “fashion school.”

    I do see benefits. This could be a great alternative after-school activity for young black women. I guess we’ll just wait and see.

    I’m curious if this is strictly for those looking to get into modeling or for regular people who just want a little more poise and confidence? Is there an everyday use in which one could utilize a skill like walking runways?

  • shamentra

    I think your modeling school is great. It give young black girls a real chance to grow more in this type of industry. I have a 14year old who’s standing 6/8. We would love for an opportunity

  • Stop

    You sound like a Know-it-all, and an ignorant one at that. Why because a black woman opens a school to offer knowledge she has gained over the course of her career must it be a scam. You sound like a damn fool. Surely, Cynthia has become an expert at what she does in 20-plus years. You can’t create a look but you can damn sure learn how to walk a runway and learn how to take professional model photographs from a school fool.

  • Why is This About Color?

    Why can’t Cynthia’s school just be about offering fashion and modeling education to whomever wants to learn it? Why so much emphasis on color? I have no aspirations for modeling but I’m in the industry considering her class to learn more in general.

    Folks, broaden your horizons.

    iM INTERESTED IN CYNTHIA MODELING SCHOOL!

    Modeling schools are usually a scam. I think Cynthia should make her modeling school more of a finishing school for young women. Depends upon the price but sure I wouldn’t mind attending and I would certainly pay for a younger neice or cousin to go.

    Cynthia was a big comerical blk model in the 90′s, she wore a “twa” before before being natural was normal.
