Claire Dawe-McCord from Ottawa, Ontario launched her national and international modelling career after attending CMTC. The Ottawa native has signed with industry leaders in Toronto, Montreal, Singapore, Tokyo, and New York City. Claire has appeared on the cover of magazines such as Wedding Bells, Mariage Quebec, and 1968. Claire can be seen in editorials for magazines such as Latest, Dauphine, Scorpio Jin, and INBEAUT.
Claire opened up to The Business Model about her experience modelling in Tokyo and what it’s like working in the bustling metropolis:
“Despite the fact I had done some research and had spoken to models who had worked there before, I didn’t really grasp the scale of Tokyo. There are hundreds of models from all over the world vying for the same jobs. That’s why you need to have a good agency both at home and in Tokyo supporting you. You also need to find a positive way to stand out to casting directors” (Claire Dawe-McCord, The Business Model, 2014).
Claire recently graduated from the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) Program at McMaster University. She is now attending the Cumming School of Medicine to pursue her education to become a doctor.
