About the Agency
In 1991 the VIVA Service Agency for models was founded as a company. Viva was the first agency which received the official permission to mediate models through the Federal Institute for employment. Executive acting partner Andrea Matthias – former model and trained advertising executive – started the company through her own industry experience, through which VIVA developed into a renowned business within Berlin’s fashion landscape as well as the international markets.
Our first offices were in Berlin Charlottenburg and since 2008 we are located in Berlin Mitte at Chechpoint Charlie. The VIVA Team is made up of 4 bookers, 1 graphic designer, 1 accountant and usually one work experience placement. VIVA represents and looks after female and male internationally placed models as a mother agency, as well as international models which are represented by VIVA in Germany. Furthermore VIVA represents commercial models as well as actors. VIVA works with all big name magazines, photographers and casting agencies in Germany.
As a mother agency, VIVA represents internationally acclaimed female and male models, as well as representing other international models in Germany in co-operation with their agencies.
Their international roster includes Cole Mohr, Julian Hennig, Julien Sabaud, Jakob Wiechmann, Lasse Pedersen, Lucien Thomkins, Luke Worrall, Tom Nicon, Anna Jagodzinska and Kinee Diouf.
The strength of VIVA’s success has resulted in H&M artist as with the creation of VIVAstyle & Younger models, where stylists and hair/make-up artists, as well as kids and teens are being successfully represented and booked.
