You have probably heard about Ford and Elite modeling but when it comes to other big agencies DNA Model Management is among one of the most reputable agencies in the world. DNA is located in the New York City, the mecca for aspiring models and fashion designers. Established in 1996, DNA rose to the top by their drive for excellence and discovering some of the most iconic faces in the industry. The agency helped launch the careers of models such as Linda Evangelista, Raquel Zimmermann, and Doutzen Kroes, just to name a few. They also manage actor Iam Somerhalder and now famous Olympic gold medal figure skater Evan Lysacek.
Founded by Jerome and David Bonnouvrier, DNA Model Management was created to help talent bridge the gap that existed between the larger agencies known for their popularity and financial strength, but didn’t have the knowledge of images and styles that the clients were seeking. David also has relationships that go back a decade with some of the most influential power players in the industry.
Its own management style includes, carefully balancing the model’s image and capitalizing on that image to build their client’s net worth. DNA has come to be known as an agency small in size, with a small number of clients, but large in impact, in terms of the size of its influence within the fashion and modeling industry. Decisions have been made by this agency over the past several years that have posted spectacular results as you can tell by some of its clients and talent.
DNA continues to work with some of the world renown entertainment industry companies, including American Vogue, French Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, W, and V magazines.
