When people think about the great modeling capitals of the world usually cities like Paris, Milan, London or New York City come to mind. People often think of stylish hipsters that walk the streets of Brooklyn and become the muses of street photographers who post on them on blogs like The Sartorialist or of slender, modelesque Parisian women for whom style often seems to come quite effortlessly. People are familiar with the fashion trends that have risen and fallen in these cities such as the punk rock style that came to fruition in London and New York City and the dandy trend that was quite popular in New York City a few years ago. People don’t often think of the state of Texas as being a fashion capital or a hotbed of talent out of which the next big names in entertainment and fashion will arise but those people would be wrong. Texas has given the world famous entertainment talent like singer Beyonce Knowles, her sister Solange Knowles and famous country music group the Dixie Chicks. The Brown Agency, a talent agency launched by Justin Brown, is helping to put Texas on the map as one of the epicenters of fashion and entertainment in the country.
The Brown Agency is an enterprise that was born of a marriage between Brown’s former agency Wilhelmina Austin and another talent agency that was known as Heyman Talent-South. According to a press release from Market Wired The Brown Agency is distinguished by being the single full-service agency in the city of Austin. The Brown Agency offers a breadth of services that include identifying and cultivating local models that have participated in commercial advertising campaigns, been in fashion magazines and walked runways at high profile fashion events like New York Fashion Week, Dallas Fashion Week and Austin Fashion Week.
While The Brown Agency has distinguished itself as a premier agency for attracting and developing modeling talent in the central Texas market it has also developed other competencies that have made it a multifaceted business. In addition to placing models in lucrative modeling jobs The Brown Agency has also been able to develop and cultivate theatrical and commercial talent that have worked for high profile brands and placed in theatrical projects. The brands that The Brown Agency’s talent has worked with include some of the biggest names in technology, luxury fashion, beauty and business. The company has been able to place homegrown talent from Texas in jobs working for fashion brand Louis Vuitton, computer manufacturer Dell, automotive manufacturer Toyota and international beauty brand L’Oreal. The Brown Agency, led by its President Justin Brown has mastered the art of creating a pipeline through which local talent can transition from working in a local market like Central Texas and have access to work in larger national and global markets.
