For had a number of promising new girls break during the S/S 13 shows. What will happen to them now?
I think his example as well as Louie C at Elite show is that one or even a few star bookers/agents at an agency aren't all that's needed to become a great agency any more. .
As I said in the topic from pire "business" point if view, those so called "star booker" just never got any result, so it obviously could not last.
I mean at the end a business is about making money, if u can just build some hype and noise but that what you do dont pay the bills soon or late you are out.
As creative and interesting as it was, Supreme has always been a money disaster, so not sure that the Ford money backer was happy to see rowland turning Ford in the same money kind of result...

Hanne Gaby is not credited on Ford website anymore, but she's with the new IMG Sydney... She is with IMG now worldwide?

I wonder, how does the whole thing of transferring agencies go? Are the girls appointed to a potential agent at an agency, or do they get together and say, (Karmen Pedaru) Well girl, I'm gonna try IMG. Where are you going?" (Crystal Renn) "I guess I'll see what's going on at Women." Like why don't they all just go to the same agency, being that they came from the same agency.

Just because the girls were all with the same agency does not mean that they will all go together, like a school of ducklings to a new one. It depends on what each girl is looking for and what appeals to them most, or what new agents are offering them. Generally, in a situation similar to what happened when Paul Rowland left Women, the girls will follow the group of agents they are accustomed to. This time it seems like Paul Rowland was fired from Ford so he did not really have a plan of where to go next, so the girls are running around like headless chickens. Or better said just scurrying off to find a safe place, since it does not seem like the agents know where to go next. I'm assuming the agents will find place with some of these new NY agencies opening up, but what do I know? I'm just a stylist...

This is what I meant. Just like when he left Supreme for Ford, all of "his girls" followed him. Now that he is without, I was just inquisitive on how the girls are picking and choosing. So is Julia Nobis still at Ford?? If so, she has to carry that torch now, since it seems Ford has lost all of their current stars.

Models often follow their bookers or the people that "discovered them". Otherwise, mother agencies also have a big say. Unless the girl has been in the industry for a substantial period, the knowledge to determine which agency is best is not usually there. Ultimately it's an individual decision where several different factors "behind the models" influences the major outcome.

Hopefully that means we'll see more of Kelsey in the next seasons. I miss her.

Eniko's switch seems odd to me, especially since she seemed to be doing so well at Marilyn - I'm guessing her booker left?
