Fashion Models' Agents


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 to maintain existing relationships and develop new ones with clients who may offer modeling jobs. Modeling agencies are located in larger cities throughout the United States and abroad. Larger agencies maintain multiple international offices.
