fall shwpckg: new york model men, new york

with expected bookings from known faces matthias lauridsen, thiago santos & ty oagunkoya; admittedly, i am not as familiar with the men of new york models as much as other new york based agencies. while i’ve seen images of mark westinghouse floating around the fashion blogosphere, robbie wadge has appeared for bennetton, barney’s & burberry’s golf campaign in the past, charlie france is right there with wadge appearing for burberry through look books & campaigns while sweden’s alexander johansson appeared alongside lara stone for the CK SS11 campaign. lucas mascarini has appeared for lacoste, as well as editorial spots with hercules, italian GQ & german GQ style. while many of the faces fit the bill for high end markets, none are particularly outstanding aside from thiago, ty & mathias. we’ll see who books which shows for the fall season.

fall shwpckg: elite models, new york

elite models holds true to their name in representing some of the baddest females in fashion. you know alessandra ambrosio from victoria’s secret, dree hemingway from international editorial bookings & ana beatriz barros, caroline brasch-nielsen & bette adewole should ring a bell as each of them has appeared here in the last year. i was surprised to see alice burdeau on the elite women’s board this season; for those who aren’t up on game, alice was the first winner of australia’s next top model & has had exceptional success booking campaigns & editorial like a veteran her first season in the game. i’ve always admired alice for her high end look & have wondered of her whereabouts after not seeing her for what seemed like a few seasons. as one of the top agencies in new york, im looking forward to seeing who books which shows; especially alessandra.

fall shwpckg: wilhelmina models, new york

founded in 1967 by wilhelmina & bruce cooper, wilhelmina models has agency offices in new york, los angeles, miami & munich. presenting an intimate set of females for the FW11 show season in new york. among this set of faces, the most outstanding is that of melodie monrose. hailing from martinique, monrose has had strong bookings on the runway, appearing for marc jacobs, gucci, miu miu, YSL & lanvin in season’s past. editorial bookings seen at the back end of 2010 allowed monrose to garner even more leverage as a promising new face as she appeared for the pages of interview, dazed & confused & V magazine. that said, with the increase of demand for asian female models, i can sense success this season for wang xiao. keke lindgard hails from hawaii & has had noted success in editorial bookings & even booked the SS11 D&G campaign. though small, an agency with smaller board is able to give specialized attention to each girl, which could weigh more valuable than big powerhouse agencies. furthermore, you never know what could happen on the runway. remember these girls.
