Our forward-thinking clients commit to Professional Model Treatment
Our platform and work ethic is founded on the principles of equality, diversity and respect towards everyone in the fashion industry with special care towards our models.
The Finda model board has no exclusive agreements with Finda, no weigh ins and/or guidelines for sizing/dictated measurements. We encourage uniqueness and support individuality amongst our community.
We currently only work with models who are 18 years old and above in an aim to ensure that all decisions are made solely by them. Our platform empowers models to freely negotiate their fees in a simplistic, revolutionary way and applies no pressure to take on jobs.
Through our continuous verification process we try our best to ensure that all clients provide the right working conditions (health and safety), working hours and breaks for our models and celebrate practices against discrimination, harassment and abuse in the workplace. Finda operates on continuously evaluating client/model feedback with the aim to quickly spot and investigate wrong behaviour with a zero tolerance policy.
As a previous journalist for Monocle and with a passion for research, she co-founded the platform following the discovery of a need for a modern solution to tackle issues of unfairness, mistreatment and lack of transparency in the modelling industry. As a strong advocate for ethical treatment, financial transparency and community empowerment, Mariya continuously works on ways to push these ideas through Finda’s technology.
