NYC-based boutique modeling agency The Lions is taking things to the West Coast with a new L.A. office. With a roster the includes beautiful faces like Irina Shayk, Sara Sampaio, Stella Maxwell, Adwoa Aboah, and Cameron Russell, the agency, which opened just three years ago, is looking to support the growing fashion scene in La-La Land. The Lions LA, which marks the second U.S. location, will have its own team of agents who will rep new and existing clients.
“From the beginning, we’ve built The Lions on a non-traditional business model that looks beyond measurements to find clients who have unique qualities and we work to develop their profiles,” said Ali Kavoussi, a managing partner, in a press statement. “As the fashion industry continues to evolve, opening an outpost in LA is a natural next step as we continue to grow our business.”
