Models 1 was founded in 1968, with just three models on their books. Now, some 37 years later, the Company has grown to become the largest and most successful agency in Europe and one of the top and most respected agencies in the world.
The Company developed its reputation by discovering and helping to build the careers of girls and boys who have achieved enormous success and international fame. Top models, like Yasmin Le Bon, Jerry Hall, Greta Scaatchi, Twiggy, Karen Elson, Gerard Smith, Charley Speed and Giles Curties all began with Models 1.
Models 1 operates through four divisions: Women, Men, New Faces and Personal Management, the latter being responsible not only for celebrities, like Ali MacGraw, Patsy Kensit, Faye Dunaway and Christopher Lee, but also the careers of more established models.
The New Faces division is responsible for finding new models, training them and helping them to get their careers off to the best possible start.
Hair & Make-up was launched in 2002 and represents, as its main focus, some 18 hair and make-up artists, as well as two stylists.
Models 1 has an unimpeachable and responsible attitude to its models. We are determined to nurture and develop their longer term careers, whilst ensuring that they do not run before they can walk. We treat all our models as individuals and put their care, safety and happiness above all else.
We are committed to, and have developed, long-term relationships with models and clients alike.
Models 1 will maintain its outstanding commitment to professionalism in every aspect of its business and, above all, in the discovery, nurture and development of the best models in the world.
