At Models With Armor, we seek out unique talent. And build them from the inside out, as opposed to breaking them down and building them into who and what we'd 'like" them to be. Tall and beautiful are lovely, but it takes more to actually "make it" in this business. Although we treat our models as human beings, we make sure that they understand that the industry sees them as a "product." We teach them how to cope in a world that goes against every uplifting phrase they've been brought up to believe. By give them the tools, not to give a damn, let it roll off their backs and move on to the next, without leaving any residual insecurities behind.
They are aware of their strengths, so-called "weaknesses" and how to use BOTH to their advantage. All while being professional young business men/women, boys/girls. This is a business, not a game. One that has changed A LOT over the last ten years. The "product" aka "Your Brand" carries a lot more power than it used to. And our models are taught how to use EVERYTHING they have to their advantage. We "arm" you with the tools to succeed and conquer in an unattainable world, made of dreams, that only a hand full will reach...and provide them with the stepping stool..to get them closer to that dream. We make no promises, as we can't control your destiny...this is a business where your fate happens to lie in the hands of others. Sell it, own it, make them believe that there's nobody else out there that can do what you do.
Another difference is that we teach them to do it with class. When all is said and done and you've put away your stiletto's,(as if you ever would ;) ) you want to be able to look in the mirror and have as little regrets as possible.
Models with Armor builds careers, not seasonal characters. We are selective and give each model the attention needed to leave their mark in an already overly saturated market. A market that displays the same face, body type and physique over and over. So, if by chance you are looking for someone unique, someone strong, someone who understands who they are inside and out, regardless of how young they may be...then Models with Armor is the place for you to seek out new talent.
We are a new kind of agency. Changing with the times, while maintaining the dignity of our models. We genuinely care about our models. (Not saying that others don't...but we care in a different way.) Many seasoned models would take a similar approach. Cause once you know the good, the bad and the ugly...you can't sell a dream, without telling them all that comes along with it. With great fame, comes great responsibility. Our power will not be abused ...but appreciated and used to it's highest purpose.
Models with Armor is a talent agency located in Winston Salem, NC. We have a unique vision. Our goal is to build careers, not "one hit wonders."
