There’s a new model agency player in town and the name is Trump. Owned by mogul Donald Trump, Trump is lining its board with hot new faces and the results are exciting. With these breaking faces shooting everything from Italian Vogue to Harper’s Bazaar to Numero and Allure, Trump is clearly here to stay. Signing here gives you the advantage of “boutique” management, mixed with a savvy that will surprise you coming from an agency this new.
The Trump crew has worked hard to make their mark and they are hungry for the inspiring new talent that will take the agency to its destined spot in the upper echelons of the industry. Their models include Vogue regular Lisa Cant, stars Polina and Hye, rising stars Julia I., Katia P., Ekat and Atong and supermodels Tatjana Patitz, Pat Cleveland and Isabella Rossellini.
PRO: It’s a testament to the power of a dedicated scouting eye and dedicated, disciplined management to watch how Trump has positioned itself as a stable and valid company. The longevity of Lisa Cant speaks of this, as does the impeccable booking stretch of Hye Park as well as the rise during the FW 07 bookings of newcomer Ekat.
Most importantly is the loyalty that the managers at this agency has inspired and that is very important for a girl looking for representation to consider. It’s very clear that Trump is completely dedicated to carving the best career possible for the girls they sign. If what you’re looking for is that totally focused and devoted manager, at an agency that will give you maximum attention as well as space to grow, then Trump will be a top choice for you.
CON: It’s getting mighty crowded in the NY field and the turnover on new girls in the editorial market is reaching a cruel crescendo. The challenge then is to steady Trump’s recently flush hand and keep the Lisa’s and Hye’s running at full momentum a year from now.
Luckily via The Apprentice TV show, the uber-branding of the Donald Trump empire should mean all those Baby Ambers’ in the Mid-West will now know what Trump means. And this is an agency it would not be advised to bet against.
SCOUTING CALL: Signing here gives you the advantage of boutique management, mixed with a savvy that will surprise you coming from an agency this new. The Trump crew has worked hard to make their mark and they are hungry for the inspiring new talent that could provide that firework. Besides, you might get to meet the legendary Donald.
