The Lions in NY hits another rocky season

Quote:

Sometimes New York isn’t so pretty — even for a successful modeling agency.

The founders of Paris-based Silent Models, a flourishing agency that represents Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Isabeli Fontana in France, have stumbled in their attempt to expand to the Big Apple, The Post has learned.

Vincent Peter and Eric Dubois, who founded Silent in 2006, recently cut ties with their New York office after knocking heads with Silent NY founder Peter Fitzpatrick, sources said.

“Silent Paris has terminated its relationship with Silent NY and the agencies are no longer working together,” according to a notice posted at Silentmodels.com.
Silent Models of Paris — which reps the likes of sultry beauty Isabeli Fontana (above) can’t get its New York City act together.

Each side feels the other cheated it out of money, sources said — and Peter and Dubois have filed suit in Manhattan state court over the matter.

The Parisian partners then tried to form a partnership with The Lions, a newbie New York agency founded by Marianne Tamposi, of Prodigy Model Management in Palm Beach, Fla.

But the two have run into turbulence again. Fitzpatrick flipped his lid when models once listed with Silent NY started appearing on The Lions’ website late last year, sources told The Post.

“They were trying to take the girls to different agencies,” Fitzpatrick told The Post. “I just called up the owners of those agencies and said they are not allowed to work for you because they have a noncompete.”

Tamposi didn’t respond to a request for comment, but sources told The Post two other ex-bookers for Silent NY, Carl Navarro and David Kim, now work for The Lions.

Fitzpatrick said that the two sides are working on a settlement. He declined to discuss the terms of the deal except to say that he expects a press release soon.

Joseph D’Avanzo, the lawyer representing Peter and Dubois in the employment dispute, declined to comment. Fitzpatrick’s lawyers, Joe Clark and James Koutoulas, also declined to comment.

Elite Paris and Elite NYC used to be part of the same network, but the NYC office was sold right after there was a drug scandal concerning models at the NYC agency in the late 90s.
Since then they have been separate operations and they have had virtually no relationship. That's why Elite Paris worked closely with Marilyn, Ford and NY Models in NYC until recently when the Elite Paris owners decided to return to the NYC market. They originally opened the Elite NYC office. So now you have Society.

I dont think the society is having ming xi miss fashion week, pretty sure she will show up somewhere

As for elite ny and elite paris, they are owned by completely different people. Think of it like burger king (odd comparison, I know) but they are not all owned by the same people. Elite is just a name. Elite europe has the same owner and since they havent been working with elite ny, they wanted an office there. They cant use name elite since someone else owns it in the united states, so viola you have the society.

So what agencies are now really good for new faces? Ford is out of the question. Is Elite any better now?

Seems to me DNA, Next, and IMG seem to be pushing out the newer faces that are doing well.

^New York Models is having a dream season with the Sam/Chiharu/Tess trio; The Society in their first season has Manuela Frey who opened Calvin Klein; Women/Supreme are still killing it with Katya R, Maartje, and Sasha Luss - though I think Women might only get half of the credit for Sasha because she is with Elite in Europe and had her resurgence during couture with Elite Paris.

All in all it's still a pretty good distribution of great new faces amongst the NY agencies. Ford is actually still staying afloat with Kremi/Ashleigh Good (Though neither brand new) and Joanna Tatarka. Elite has a couple of great, cool faces like Alana Bunte and Emma Oak...though both are just doing well, not incredibly stellar, on the runway so far.

I'm only still wondering why they're all running to The Society. Is Elite Europe so good?
