fall shwpckg: img models, new york

by Jeremy Danté

one thing is known in the world of modeling & in the universe we know as fashion- IMG represents the big girls. & when i say big girls im not talking measurements. as the agency that represents living icons in their special bookings division; naomi campbell, gisele bundchen, trya banks, heidi klum & kate moss in particular- not many agencies will ever be able to attain the professional reputation or industry respect that has been earned by IMG models, internationally. with a global board of over 100 represented female models, 36 of those women currently rank within the top 50 models of fashion. females ajak deng, aminata, alek wek, barbara palvim, chanel iman, du juan, frida gustavsson, jac jagaciak, heidi mount, jessica miller, joan smalls, karolina kurkova & lily donaldson have all had noted success in the fashion industry through campaigns, editorial & runway bookings. of all the agencies in the world, IMG is the one to beat. just about every desired face working in fashion is on the IMG roster. while model favorites have never been kept a secret here, joan smalls is one special case that i am constantly in tune to on the runway & off; her rise to fame & seemingly overnight success is one of fashion dreams & im very happy to see that she has been warmly recieved by high end fashion. her bookings for the spring alone are inspiringly great as we’ve seen her appear for italian vogue, gucci, stella mccartney, roberto cavalli & is a regular in the prestigious american & french vogue editorial circuit. as the face of estee lauder, smalls will star in international campaigns this year & her star is definitely one of outstanding strength not just in new york but in every fashion capital around the world. these are the names & faces you know, love & admire. i wish every IMG girl success, not just in new york, but for the whole of show season. let the games begin!
