Founded in 1977, Select Model Management is globally recognised as one of the most prestigious and innovative agencies in the model and talent industry. Since its establishment, it has built an exclusive client list of the world’s leading lifestyle brands and has managed the careers of the biggest, brightest and most successful male and female models and artists. It represents the likes of David Gandy, Irina Shayk, Jon Kortajarena, Oliver Cheshire, Michael Ward, Lucan Gillespie, Primrose Archer, Will Chalker, Marjan Jonkman, Shanelle Nyasiase, Aliet, and Amanda Murphy.
Select’s Men’s Division has dominated the men’s market in the UK, with its New Faces team debuting the careers of first-rate talent such as David Gandy, Oliver Cheshire, Ben Allen Jacey Elthalion, Danny Beauchamp, Finn Hayton, Sacha M’Baye, Paul Sculfor and O’Shea. Equally, Select’s Women’s board has helped kick-start the modelling careers of Sienna Miller, Sam Rollinson, Stella Tennant, Lucan Gillespie, Primrose Archer, Jess Hart, Eliza Cummings, among many others. The agency also represents breakthrough singers Connie Constance and Aaron Unknown, alongside talent such as Actor Michael Ward from Netflix’s series Top Boy.
In 2019, Select merged with MP Management, the world’s fastest-growing global network of model and talent agencies, which proudly launched the careers of new faces such as Yoonmi Sun and Shanelle Nyasiase, and worked with established top models including Marjan Jonkman, Arthur Gosse, Adonis Bosso, Gao Jie, and Bar Rafaeli.
Having shaped the model and talent industry for over forty years, Select is now a global model and talent agency which has offices in 8 countries across the world: London, Milano, Paris, Stockholm, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami.
Its original ethos – getting on the streets and ‘scouting’ natural, individual and unique looks and talent to be nurtured into major names – is as important today as it was four decades ago and will go on being the foundation of the new, global Select.
