From the start of a model’s career, she must build a ‘tote bag’ and stock it with all the tools of the trade. The bag should be light weight, waterproof, large enough to hold a portfolio and have a shoulder strap for easy carrying. It should be with the model at all times (on jobs, testings and go-sees). Every night the tote bag should be checked and restocked if necessary.
