Review ID1490 / about Banilla
DON'T GO TO BANILLA EVER!!!!! this is the worst Agency I've ever been to! There are almost no castings, no work, too, with prices very much deceived, only the apartments were normal, but this does not cover everything else! Terrible attitude to the models, every day they will talk their brains out about the weight, every 100g, I do not exaggerate!!!
Booker with whom I was there (there were 2 more or less normal), left there at the end of my contract (it just happened), I had a contract from March to may 2019. Now I communicate with the girls who are there, nothing has changed. We even had an ironic phrase in our apartment: for example, a friend made a magazine cover in Singapore, and we catch me with a rumeytka look and such "and we are in banilla". LLC, AND STILL THERE the most Small pockets in Korea, 70,000 Korean, this sooo little, been lacking of course, but the only trip where I almost nowhere not has gone. No pockets (not even to see the city, when there is no work and casting, no casting, no work.
They cheat very much with a guarantee, they give it a small one that at least someone came, and after 2 weeks, under any pretext, it is removed, you are too thin, you are too fat, you are too sexy, you do not like customers, you have recovered by 500 gr.About: Banilla

Important only that they are one of the best in Bangkok. and that's Enough.About: A1 Models
Hi! Sharing my story. An Agency in my city in Russia offered me a contract with Leya Agency in China, Chengdu. I found about it only a very old review, asked again. They made it clear that modeling is difficult to call it, but you can earn some money there, at least not to come with zero. Moreover, I'm 23, and this is the first trip. I thought that I could not find anything better, and I need to try. I was offered a guarantee of $ 600 a month and after the tenth job a month surcharge of 200¥ for each job, visa, round-trip tickets, apartments and travel to work. Contract for 3 months. There are small moments that are not so important. For example, once I was driving from work from another city at night in a taxi with Booker and other models. Booker got a call from my agent and asked him to drop me off in the middle of the road so she could pick me up in another taxi, because otherwise we wouldn't be able to get to my next job in another city. It was the fifth day of my stay in Chengdu, I still have not issued a SIM card, and I am one, at two in the morning, in the middle of the road waiting for an hour and a half. Without a connection. And if the connection was could be anything. And there were many such moments. The safety of models do not care, not to mention some comfort, and other non-vital things. In the warmer months, everything was still tolerable, but as soon as the cold began, and we continued to work on the street in summer dresses, all models began to hurt. The contract says that if the model gets sick at work, the Agency provides treatment at its own expense. But the Agency, which consists of one person, an agent named Yong Fan with a Russian pseudonym Luba does not react to this and says that we do not have to. And that we should buy all medicines at our own expense, even if we get sick at work. There was no heating in the apartments (this is normal for China) and it was so cold that we walked around the house and slept in down jackets. Two girls have pneumonia, but even with the temperature they have to work, or fly home at their own expense, without receiving a salary for the month. We have tourist visas, and once right at work we were taken to the police station. They held him for 12 hours until they got a bribe. I was so stressed that after that passed psychosomatic disease, which could not cure 2 years. For this China thank you) After this situation one model escaped home, parents bought tickets. At that time she stayed in Chengdu for a month. The agent didn't pay the Commission to the parent Agency, not only for her, but for all the other girls, and just stopped responding to messages. Then it became clear that she could do anything at all, because there is no passport data in the contract, and it does not have any legal force. Of course, I had to check and find out all this before the trip. But I trusted my mother's Agency. There are no complaints about the salary, but it is obvious to me that it is better not to work with this agent. We were supposedly a test shot for which in fact the agent received the money. One day a customer blurted out payment. There were strange "auditions", which all gave full different bows, sometimes several, and photographed, carefully removing the tags on the clothes, correcting hair and poses, exposing the light. I think for this, too, the agent received money, because after these "auditions" there was no work, no one was chosen. And if the normal casting was attended by models from different agencies, these were just us. But I can not say anything, there is no evidence. We were sent to work in clubs, a couple of times even in ktv, and I would have left at my own expense, if I could. Many girls from provincial cities inexperienced agencies send to similar "contracts", and it is not normal. I know that there was another incident with JVogue Agency in Chengdu, they can confirm it. Yong Fan copied their contract, and deceived the parent agencies and models, posing as a representative of the Agency JVogue, as if the model flies to the contract there. It turned out that it was a hoax, already in Chengdu. One model wrote the guide Gevoha, and was a scandal. They demanded the return of all the money earned Luba, under the guise of their name. Here is a review of another girl about the same Agency. "Good afternoon! I want to tell you about an Agency. The Agency is located in China , Chengdu. The agent here doesn't care about his models. In winter, the cold makes you work in a swimsuit with a high temperature, all the girls are sick. It got to the point where two models got pneumonia. At the request to take them to the hospital agent does not respond. When the parent Agency begins to stand up for their models, the Chinese agent refuses to pay interest to the mother, and the models still work. It happens that underage girls work in a swimsuit in bars and clubs. Once this agent deceived a girl with tickets, bought tickets without Luggage, and she claimed the opposite. After that, the girl could not fly away, and the Chinese agent just said, " not my problem," and then did not answer the calls. The girl had to wait a day at the airport until the parents at their own expense to renew the ticket . The agent does not care in what conditions the girls live and work. Girls are forced to act in the terrible cold in light clothes, when the Chinese themselves go in winter clothes, after which another girl earned bronchitis. In the apartment where models live, terrible cold, and requests to buy heaters are ignored. There were times when girls came for one bet and ended up paying less. There was another case when due to the carelessness of the agent, the girl paid herself for the hotel and tickets from Hong Kong, where she flew to extend the visa, although it was agreed that these costs are borne by the Agency. Nobody returned the money. In Chengdu, the Agency is called Leya, and the agent's name is Yong Fan, Russian alias Luba.About: Leya
When in Seoul on a contract was, met a lot of models from that Agency. Can't tell you much information, but I know that it is very much cheating for money. The client called the Agency one amount for the work, and the models pay another. For example, one of the girls from my Agency and worked with boys from the Model Directors. The work was one, and the salary of the boy in 2 times lessAbout: Directors
I do not advise this Agency. Career you don't build and earn a huge minus. Although all individuals.
Hello everyone, my name is Victoria and my parent Agency “Palms Models”, from which I recently fly under contract to Korea (Agency Model Directors).But since my MA only works abroad, I decided to work in Moscow before leaving for Korea. In addition, the Moscow Agency “Names models” , wrote to me several times and invited them. And so, I agreed. They sent me a 14-day contract. I want to warn the models! Called me to Moscow Agency “Names models” , sent a contract for 14 days, in Moscow I had to make a visa to Korea , and after 10-14 days to fly to work in Seoul, I bought a ticket from Yekaterinburg ,arrived in Moscow on February 1, settled in the apartment. The next day I went to the Agency, there I made snaps, the Director seemed quite friendly, we talked and I explained that immediately after the contract with their Agency, I fly to work in Korea and in Moscow I will make a visa that I do not plan to fly home to Yekaterinburg. I asked them to let me know in advance if they want to send me home because I have a visa and so I can find a place in Moscow ,in case the work will be bad. She agreed. The next day I had a show of TFP, which is a little strange, but I did not refuse and worked it. On 5 February I set the shooting TFP I, too, also without problems worked. At the show, I liked the designer, she wrote to me personally ,asked if I could work for 2000 rubles, I gave the Agency contacts, asked to write to them, because I work through them in Moscow (the work took place on February 6). After that, for some reason I was moved to other apartments, where no one lived, but I did not create problems and did everything I was asked.On Wednesday, February 7, I was sent to the casting for the wedding magazine ( I had already applied for a visa, it had to be ready on Tuesday the 13th). At the casting I was told that the shooting will be on February 12, I warned the client that my visa will be ready 13 and after receiving it, I immediately fly to Korea. The client said okay . The editor of the magazine took my Instagram and said the evening will write took me to work or not, in the evening she wrote that I was taken, but later said that the shooting is postponed to the 15th, and asked if I could that day. I immediately apologized and explained to her that most likely not, because I can fly 13-14 numbers. She understood me, said it was okay , wished me a good trip. In the evening on Thursday the 8th came to visit me Olya my friend ( she is also a model) ,half past seven in the evening the Director of the Agency Names Anastasia wrote that I was ready to work 15, not asking if I can stay, although the contract after the 14th I have no relation to this Agency. I reminded her that I had to fly on February 13-14, but in response I heard: "Vika, no, ask for tickets for 16". She began to say that she could not cancel my work (although the editor wrote no problems), began voice messages with assaults.The next day (February 9) I had another job payment was to be 4000₽, in the end the Director told me that tomorrow after this work I moved out of the apartment and that she did not want to listen to anything more. I was shocked, for what?! I did not violate any conditions, did everything I was told, but to stay longer than it was specified in the contract, even for 1 day - is not included in my duties! For this attitude, I said that tomorrow I will not go to work from the Agency Names. Anastasia said that she would find me a replacement for tomorrow's work (immediately replacing me with another girl ceased to be a problem for her). I planned to move out the next day, to which the Director wrote me to leave the apartment right now (at that time it was eight o'clock in the evening). I told her it was almost night and I had nowhere to go, which Anastasia said, "I have to." My friend Olya stayed with me to help solve something. We started calling everyone to find some option for the night. After that, Sasha came into the apartment - she works as a Manager and lives in a neighboring model apartment of the Agency Names with the girls. I explained to her that I was not going to move out at night, and tomorrow morning I will solve this issue and give her the keys. She agreed and left.I began to pack my bags, my friend Vitalina responded to my problem and was ready to accept me, but she lives in the suburbs (I could not go there at night).At 23.30 Director Anastasia came to the apartment and said I have 20 minutes to leave this apartment with things. I again tried to explain to her that in the contract, I can live there 14 days , this was followed by her phrase: "my Agency, my apartment, I want to do something, I want to - the rules of a contract change per se, they want - and being evicted, when they want.»I said in that case, I'd call the police because I didn't have an option anymore.After that, she said I could give you money for a hostel for one night. As a result, she gave me 700 rubles for the hostel and said, call a taxi. I wrote to my parent Agency “Palms Models” and asked to specify on what number I can buy tickets to Korea, and the next morning went to the Embassy with the hope that my visa will be ready before! And I was incredibly lucky, because the visa was made ahead of time! Now my young man rented me a hotel room and now I expect a ticket to Korea, I hope it will be on Saturday.My story ended well, because I was lucky with a visa, I have friends in Moscow. But I'm afraid to think that in my place could be some seventeen-year-old girl who would be just like me, was on the street, but would not know anyone and would not have the means to rent a house.I also want to note that under the contract all the work of the model must be paid, but the TFP shows - this is the norm for Names models. Very many girls sit without work, and prices are much lower than other Moscow agencies.In General, always be careful, read reviews about agencies and sign contracts on arrival (the contract was sent to me, but when I was in the Agency, I relaxed and did not insist on signing).
