Fashion Models' Agents
The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for agents and business managers of artists, performers, and athletes will be as fast as the average for all careers through 2022. The fashion models' agent field is a very small employment field, and it is extremely difficult to land a job, but there should continue to be opportunities. Since most clients prefer to work with modeling agencies, very few models succeed without the support of an agency. New York City will continue to be the hub of modeling in the United States, and many large agencies will stay headquartered there. Agents may find more jobs by representing actors and actresses. Some agents also represent parts models—those that model specific body parts. The most popular parts models specialize in modeling legs, feet, or hands.
