  • No, since clothes companies sell and market clothes to all ages. However, you'll need your parent's permission if you are under 18.
  • It depends on where you live, some countries have more restrictions than others but generally as long as you have your parents permission you can usually model "properly" from between 14 and 16. It also depends on the agency with which you are working, as often agencies have their own rules.
  • Depends on the kind of modelling. Under 16s will always need parental permission, and any contracts signed would have to be countersigned by a parent or guardian. Catalogues are the biggest employers of models under 18, and have models from as young as a few months. Modelling and promotions agencies will normally take you on from the early teens onward. If you're interested in catwalk or high fashion work, many agencies actually prefer models to start young- around 14 ideally, as the career is notoriously short (usually over by the mid-twenties) so training needs to start very young, and teenage girls are typically slimmer and less curvaceous than older women, which makes them easier and cheaper to dress. For topless or nude modelling, or anything with an "adult" overtone, you are normally required to be eighteen.
