Fashion Models' Agents
Employment in this field should grow more slowly than the average through the next decade. This is a very small employment field, and it extremely difficult to land a job. Despite this prediction, 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.
