I usually make visits to modeling agencies throughout New York to get a pulse on the new faces they will be representing in the coming fashion season. It gives me a heads up on who to look for. Imagine my surprise when I was in the offices at Elite and they asked me to reveal their new faces for the coming fashion season. I was delighted and for the next week and in an exclusive program, I will be revealing 10 new faces with a dedicated post for each new girl at Elite.
The significance of this goes beyond just a new face though. It goes deep into the rebranding of Elite New York. With new management headed by industry titan Louie Chaban, who is reponsible for having developed the careers of Karen Elson and Agyness Deyn, Elite Model Agency as the world has known it is changing.
Elite is now more than just a modeling agency. It goes beyond strictly managing models within the fashion industry to also support models who want to explore opportunities within the art world, the music world, the acting world and elsewhere. Models who find inspiration in the music path of Karen Elson or the acting career of Agyness Deyn, will know that their other endeavors will be supported by the agency that manages their career in the modeling industry.
