Founded in 1946 by Eileen Ford and her husband, the famous Gerard W. Ford, this is one of the oldest model agencies from the United States. As old as it gets, it has a rich history that could be shared in a book - if not many. Ford was the first company to advance their models' money-owed by jobs that had been completed but not yet paid. The Ford family had the tradition of allowing teenage models who originate far from New York City to stay in their home. Today, the company is as prestigious as it can get, being one of the best in the world. They have offices all around the world from the central headquarter in New York City to cosmopolitan cities like Paris, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, and Phoenix. Global offices represent women, men, and children for editorials and parts assignments, also including plus divisions. The agency has always kept with the latest trends of the modeling world. In recent years, Ford has diversified its offer, now including hair, makeup and wardrobe modeling. Also, social media couldn�t be skipped by this giant. So if you want to keep in touch with the company, don�t forget to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and of course Instagram. Fun fact: Ford Models has also lent its name to an imprint of Random House books, which created a series of teen novels that served to try and glamorize working with the agency. And, of course, we shouldn�t even get started on famous names who made a career in modeling. If you are interested in becoming a model, then enter their website and contact your nearest office.
