When a client books a model for a specific job, he is usually expected to cover the model’s travel needs. This is called a direct booking. The second rule is to be aware of the budget allocated for travel and accommodations when booking for Fashion Week. Finally, clearly define who is authorized within the company to confirm and order the flights to the Travel Agency.

Your team will surely travel to different countries. Therefore, you need to make sure that they dispose of all the required documents to enter for the purpose of doing business.

Prepare For Different Time Zones.
With fashion week being in different cities, your support team has to be available during the active hours of the show in the location’s time zone. Your talent also needs to adjust to any potential jetlag issues and be well rested for the shows. Work with your Travel Agent to choose flights that take into consideration local time zones. He will help you avoiding booking flights with layovers to minimize potential delays in travel.
Provide Packing Guidelines.
The first recommendation is to create a structured checklist for the items that will be required for the shows. This is especially crucial for production teams as they will be bringing necessary equipment for the show. Make sure to review with your photographers, make-up artists, stylists, and models the personalized items they need for business. Fashion Week is the highlight for many professionals’ careers. They will want to bring and use their unique tools that have made them successful. Speak with your Travel Agent to check if any expensive items will need to be shipped with or without flight insurance coverage.
Plan For An Emergency.
Always be prepared for emergencies. Have a meeting with your team before Fashion Week to discuss the potential scenario’s that can arise. Prepare a strategy for potential solutions and back up plans. Common issues that can arise are a Model getting sick and missing the show, or a production team late for their connecting flight. Make sure to work with your Travel Agent to book flexible flights and hotels. The opportunity to change, exchange, or cancel with minimal costs will provide optimal flexibility for your team.
