Wilhelmina Models is one of the most prominent agencies in the fashion industry worldwide. A notable ability to distinguish and nurture their newest models directly relates to Wilhelmina’s leading stance in such a competitive marketplace. In addition, the company’s distinct professionalism and expertise with their clients has allowed Wilhelmina Models to remain a pioneer in the dynamic and ever-changing fashion and beauty industries for over 40 years.
Located in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami, Wilhelmina Models also works with various licensees as well as hundreds of local model management firms across the country and globally to garner a variety of talent. Another talent driving tactic Wilhelmina employs is producing national model searches with top media partners including More, Shape and Men’s Fitness increasing its visibility by reaching millions of people annually.
Wilhelmina Models has always set out to build and diversify their brand with constant growth throughout the fashion world. Wilhelmina recently ventured into the world of television with “She’s Got the Look,” a modeling contest series held for women over 35 which aired with resounding success. Media powerhouse Viacom, which owns companies such as MTV Networks and Paramount Motion Pictures Group, quickly signed on “She’s Got the Look” to their TV Land line-up for a second season which aired the summer of 2009 and with a third season airing August/September 2010.
The scope of Wilhelmina’s representation on a global level is unmatched. Aside from representing, what would be considered as the elite group of models in the fashion industry; Wilhelmina provides management services for such music-entertainment-film icons. In the sports and fitness world, Wilhelmina represents some of the most influential players in the industry.
