I think they have the same relationship with Women Paris and the NYC agencies have, basically sister agencies with slightly different aesthetics.

Just to correct you on one point, a ton of girls lasted from Paul Rowland's Supreme: Hanne Gaby, Alana Zimmer, Meghan Collison, Suvi Kopenen, Bruna Tenorio, Iris Strubegger, Jamie Bochert, Daiane Conterato, Rachel Alexander, Karolin Wolter (the campaign star of the season), Martha Streck, Suzie Bird, Valentina Zalyeva, Viktoriya Sasonkina, Rose Cordero, Veranika Antsipava..

They're affiliated through ownership only, but have zero day to day operating affiliation.

You're right. But I also believe they carved out success after switching agencies, mostly to Women, who I believe branched them out from the single aesthetic they were identified with at the beginning of their careers.

It seems like ages ago that NY agencies were stuck in a game of musical chairs, I guess things have calmed down.

The Society and The Lions seem to have stood the test of time (relatively).

Elite, Ford and Marilyn never really recovered from their shake-ups.

Whatever happened to the agency that Neal Hamil and Wayne Sterling created?

Mix Management never took off. The biggest model they had was Hannelore Knuts. Not sure she's there any longer. Also signed Tsecha White who is now with Ford.

And yeah Elite, Ford and Marilyn are still outside looking in. Ford arguably is doing the best of the three with Lexi, Ashleigh, and Erin on its board. But it doesn't have a great network of sister agencies in E. Europe, Netherlands, Germany, or China, which you kind of need now if you really want to play on the same level with IMG, Society, Women, etc. Ford Paris has started to place its girls with the NY agency but IMG and Elite still are the best agencies in Paris by far.
Elite NY has Tami Williams but no one else of note. And Marilyn has Naomi and that's it. Their pipelines are even drier than Ford's.

What is happening to Women? Lots of switching lately it seems, or is it just me?

Amber Valletta switched to IMG in Paris, Fabiana Semprebom to Marilyn, Sophie Pumfrett to Ford, etc. I also read in the "models switching agencies" thread that Snejana Onopka left Women
I asked myself the same question, what is going on

I honestly believe there's too many agencies operating in New York right now and I'm not too sure if that's a good thing. MIX Management never really found their footing and Elite New York is languishing as a second-tier agency which is sad considering the legacy they have.

It seems every few years there's a switch-a-roo. Just a couple of years back, Wilhelmina was the second-tier agency but it seems they ramped up their scouting and affiliates and seems to be doing well. All in all over the years, DNA, Women and IMG seems the most stable.

But back to Heroes NY, I do wonder if they'll be able to make a splash with their girls in the coming show season. Silent Paris tried with Silent NY, and then The Lions but nothing seems to click with them in New York. I think they might actually be better off as a boutique agency specialising in Paris because I think that's where they do well. Judging from the girls they have right now, none are money girls or hyped up so I'm wary as to how this venture will pan out.

I absolutely agree there are way too many agencies in NYC. ReQuest and Click just consolidated and I'm just holding my breath until we hear more agencies merging, maybe two or more second-tier agencies.
Silent NYC and Silent Paris had a falling out a few years ago and since the Paris agency pulled their girls from the NYC agency, Silent NYC has been foundering. If the Paris girls move from their current NYC agencies to Silent NYC, it will have a decent but not great NYC roster. But really there's no need for the NYC agency regardless.

You mean if they moved to Heroes NY?!? Hahaha! There's too many affiliates even we get confused talking about all of them.

Both ReQuest and Click seems to have better men's board than women's board by a mile and I don't think the consolidation will make much of a difference anyway. Click never seems to be able to hold on to their girls, ie Martha Hunt, Ubah Hassan and a few others I can't remember.

Yes, meant if they move to Heroes...my brain got all twisted in they gyrations.
ReQuest and Click definitely have better men's boards than women's. There is nobody of significance on either women's board.
