Business must be booming, because they are now opening up a trans specific branch office in Los Angeles.
While trans models have had a long distinguished history in the fashion world, we are at a moment in time in which people, designers and corporations are openly soliciting for their services.
Jazz Jennings is the face for Clean and Clear. Carmen Carrera has signed with Elite Models and has made clear her desire to become the first trans Victoria's Secret Angel. . Lea T has signed a deal to become the global face of Redken beauty products, and trans models like Ines Rau, Arisce Wanzer, Geena Rocero, Isis King and Andreja Pejic are popping up on runways from New York to Milan in catalogs and elsewhere..
Apple Model Management LA is set to open under the guidance of Cecilio Asuncion and already has six transgender models on their initial roster and are looking for more.
“We see trans individuals as beautiful,” says Apple's LA agency director Cecilio Asuncion. “Our strong commitment to developing them as successful models is never about quantifying or qualifying their gender. It's never a question of if they are women or men, it's about their passion and commitment to being the best possible models they can be.”
So if you are a trans woman 5'8" or taller or a trans man who is 6’ or taller and are interested in being represented by them, you can apply by following the application guidelines at the Apple Model Management website.
Application materials and photos may be emailed directly to Apple Model Management L.A. Director Cecilio Asuncion at email@example.com.
