A BRIEF HISTORY of Models 1 

Models 1 was founded in 1968 with just three models on its books (no Classic Model Section then!) Now, in its 49th year, the Company has grown to become the largest and most successful agency in Europe and among the top and most respected agencies in the world.

Models 1 is wholly owned by its management in the UK.


The company developed its reputation by discovering and helping to build the careers of girls and boys who have achieved enormous success and international fame. Among the many models represented are the likes of Yasmin and Amber Le Bon, Olivia Palermo, Sophie Dahl, Erin O’Conner, George Barnett, Billy Huxley, Sam Way, Tom Warren, Johannes Huebl, Francisco Lachowski , Jarrod Scott, Linda Evangelista, Twiggy, Alesha Dixon, and Hollie-May Saker.


Models 1 has an unimpeachable and responsible attitude to its models. The Company is determined to nurture and develop their long term careers whilst ensuring they do not run before they can walk. Models 1 treats all models as individuals and puts their care, safety and happiness above all else. A model’s welfare is in the absolute interests of Models 1. Models 1 is committed to, and develops, long term relationships with models and clients alike.


Models 1 will maintain its outstanding commitment to professionalism in every aspect of its business and in the discovery, development and welfare of the best models in the world – all types of models including the classic model Daphne Selfe.
