Is it okay for a sole proprietor retailer to pay models with just clothes?

I am starting a new company as a sole proprietor and hiring models in exchange for free clothes? Is that okay to do? And if I pay them for a small percentage per sale, will I be still considered as a sole proprietor or LLC?
