Premier Model Management
Established in London in 1981, Premier Model Management is one of the world's top model agencies, representing some of the fashion industry's most successful faces.
For almost thirty years, Premier models have appeared on the covers of magazines around the world, including British, Italian, American and French Vogue, Elle, LOVE, Pop, Dazed & Confused, i-D, 10, Wonderland, V, Homme Plus, GQ and Numero. Our models have featured in advertising campaigns, TV commercials and fashion shows of international designers, including Alexander McQueen, Aquascutum, Burberry, Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Christopher Kane, D Squared, Giles, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Gucci, Jil Sander, Louis Vuitton, Luella, Miu Miu, Prada, Roberto Cavalli and Vivienne Westwood.
Founded by Carole White and her brother Chris Owen, the agency has played a key role in discovering and building the international careers of some of the world's biggest models. These include Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Estella Warren, Estelle Lefébure, Hannah Holman, Jamie Gunns, Katrin Thormann, Kirsty Hume, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Suvi Koponen and Tao.
The agency runs five divisions: Women, Premier Division, Future Faces, Men and Special. Within these divisions Premier employs bookers who focus on specific areas of the industry. These include campaigns, editorial, catwalk, catalogue and special bookings.
The Women's division's image and reputation has become synonymous with cutting edge editorial and setting new trends in the modelling industry. The Men's section books top models like Chad White, Henry Barnacle, Jason Muirbrook, Louis Archer and Justin Gaston for high profile campaigns.
Future Faces incubates new talent from all over the world. Our scouts have discovered many major models, including Alice Gibb, Amanda Laine, Evelina Mambetova, Gabriella Calthorpe, Heidi Rock, Jacqui Ainsley, Katrin Thormann, Meghan Collison, Naty Chabanenko and Susie Bick. Names to watch out for include India Farrell and Leomie Anderson.
Premier Special has secured campaigns for Elizabeth Hurley, Estella Warren, Holly Valance, Huggy Ragnarsson, June Sarpong, Kate Hudson, Kelly Osbourne, Lisa Snowdon, Mischa Barton, Myleen Klass, Nadine Coyle, Naomi Cambell, Saffron Burrows and Sophie Ellis Bextor, and maintains a roster of international actors, TV presenters, sports personalities and stars from the music industry.
With over forty years' experience, Carole White is a voice of authority in the fashion industry. Her views and comments are regularly sought by newspapers, magazine and TV and radio shows. Carole led the campaign against racism in fashion.
Chris Owen was instrumental in producing the supermodels for George Michael's now infamous Freedom video. Chris created the original concept for David Bailey's highly successful "Models Close Up" documentary for Channel 4. He also created and developed both Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford's worldwide own-brand cosmetics and fragrance lines.
