    For a runway model yes. Most of the woman who walk the runway are probably at least 5'8" and as a man you have to be somewhere around 6' tall. You could always do other types of modeling though. They need all types of people for magazine ads, brochures, etc. I say go for it because you'll never know if you don't put yourself out there. Maybe you'll be the exception, who knows.

    you're no longer achieved growiing yet! save your plans and objectives and choose for IT! Your height would desire to get interior the way if your desire to be a fashion sort as an grownup, yet i think of 5'8" is wonderful for a youthful male sort. height isn't the sole undertaking they seem for, the industry additionally seems at physique variety, face, hair, and so forth. think of appropriate to the extra youthful megastar of the Rocky movies - he became an excellent kit and not tall in any respect -- in basic terms 5'6"!

    I modeled for petite and I am 5'4 and a half. That is woman's though. I think you can do whatever you really wanted. Someone out there needs you to sell their product!
