New model agency in New York Strong is committed to the fair treatment of its models.
STRONG is the new modeling agency on the block. Its founder Madde Ostilie and Jordan Vickors had a new vision in mind, a modeling agency that does not actually shamelessly exploit its models. The concept is radical; flexible contracts, only taking 20% commission and nothing on jobs under $200 and the freedom to work when you want. In a maternal tone the founders refer to their models as ‘kids’ and state their missions is to provide ‘...visibility for the kids across cities in America; that's really what we want the difference to be’. The agency is also dedicated to providing a ethnically diverse cast of models going against the conformist trends dominating the fashion industry today.
