Top Trump Models Leaving The Agency For New Representation
Multiple reports have claimed that Trump Models is on the brink of closing down and the agencies top modeling talent are leaving for new representation.
Mia Kang and Danielle Herrington, who both appeared in this year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, have decided to bail on Trump, according to a Page Six report on Thursday. Kang and Herrington have both reportedly turned to Trump Models rival agency, Women/360, for their new representation.
Donald Trump opened Trump Models in 1999 and industry insiders are saying it’s about to close due to the president’s politics, according to Business Insider.
A recent report by Refinery 29 claimed that members of the fashion industry were beginning a full-on boycott of Trump Models. The report claimed that casting directors, hair stylists and makeup artists were “pledging to cease all future working projects with the models represented by the agency.”
It seems that the models have now begun to react to the boycott and are searching for other representation so their own careers aren’t further affected.
Both Kang and Herrington are still listed on the Trump Models site among a long list of other women, but if the rumors from industry insiders hold true, they will all be looking for new representation soon.
