When the founder and executive officer of Pier 59 studio decided to ban all Wilhelmina and Major Model Management models from his studios… all we could do is give him a round of applause. Take a look for yourself here and find out more!!
We hope after reading this article, you all will take your time to familiarize yourself with your rights. Let it be known that this exact situation is one of the many things on our list we check off before we will sign one of our models with another agency. We don’t like to call ourselves an agency, we prefer personal manager… as you’ll notice we take more time and care over our models than the average. When we choose to partner with another agency, you can rest assured we have made sure they’re as moral as we are, and if they stop being moral, we will not hesitate to break ties… we have done it before. Agencies like Wilhelmina and Major will have a hard time defending their names at this point… this isn’t the battle of the agencies, this is a studio owner vs. agencies. Finally someone is taking a stance against the immoral actions of many in the industry. We hope for the best outcome for their models, we hope they get paid… we hope things change, and we hope they do what is right for themselves. We cannot stress enough, know your rights, and stand your ground. Take time to read the article mentioned above.
