LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Send2Press Newswire/ — Every year thousands of new hopefuls flood the modeling and talent industries hoping to make their mark. Now, with the help of a new partnership between Internet and television media producer MyDateLive, Inc. and model Sabrina Sikora and Sikora Productions, they have a place to start.

These two powerful forces have joined together to create and launch 360Flair.com, a new web community and resource center geared specifically toward the professional model.

“Most models don’t treat their careers like a business,” says Laurie Sikora, manager and primary partner in Sikora Productions, and co-founder of 360Flair.com. Laurie is recognized throughout the industry as an authority on the process of successfully managing fledgling modeling careers.

Sabrina Sikora agrees with her mother, “Most models don’t fully realize the potential with which they could self-promote.” Sabrina has appeared on dozens of national magazine covers and print ads, been a winner or finalist in several model search competitions, including the 1999 TEEN Magazine/Maybelline Great Model Search, and Elite Model Look 2000 competition, and appeared on a gamut of television shows, most recently as a contestant on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search airing on NBC.

MyDateLive, Inc. President Tony Ferraro sees this as a stepping-stone for those wanting to get a foothold in a difficult industry. “We’re taking the digital legwork out of it for our clients, and adding value further by giving them resources they might not have access to otherwise. We want to take people from start-up to stardom.”

MyDateLive, Inc. has been operating since 2002, and is the brainchild of Ferraro and his co-founders, Dave Abbitt and Greg Pinto. The company is represented by the William Morris Agency in Los Angeles, and seeks to further the relationship between conventional media and the Internet.

Accessibility and education, the desire to help individuals make a business out of the art of being beautiful, these are the goals of 360Flair.com. Though live now, the site officially launches in early February of 2005.
