Fashion Models' Agents

Overview

Fashion models' agents act as liaisons between fashion models and their clients. They match models to jobs according to a particular look the client desires. Agents arrange for promising models to work with professional photographers, stylists, and other fashion consultants in order to enhance the models' appearance and develop their style. Agents promote their models to potential clients.

Agents continually look, or "scout," for new models at conventions and modeling contests. They also work at maintaining existing relationships and developing new ones with clients who may offer modeling jobs. Modeling agencies are found in larger cities throughout the United States and abroad, though the larger agencies maintain multiple international offices.
