LondonEdge and UGLY models team up


LondonEdge is pulling out all sorts of spectacular additions to this month's show, with a programme of events unlike any show before! Add to that the latest addition of world renowned alternative agency UGLY models and you've got one hell of a bill!


With a unique outlook on modelling, UGLY Models philosophy is simple, "any beauty can be airbrushed but we want our look to have true character". With over 1,000 models on their books ranging from 18 - 100 year olds, sizes 6 - 30, UGLY Models have the most individual, wacky and peculiar looks in the industry. As well as covering the extraordinary, niche market with UGLY Models, the sister company Rage focuses on more traditional looking models so with both agencies are able to fit the right face to the right job.


With the belief that "no one is too abstract" UGLY Model's philosophy and LondonEdge's eclectic array of exhibitors and visitors are the perfect partnership. UGLY models will be joining LondonEdge at Olympia from Jan 25th -27th to seek out and recruit a new model to win a 12-month contract and photo shoot. Helping them to hunt and take pictures is renowned professional photographer Matilda Temperley.

Recruitment will go ahead on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th with traders and visitors and then will open to non traders on Sunday 27th. To attend and audition on Sunday afternoon applicants must first pre-register by emailing Carole Hunter with full contact details and a photo. A selection will then be short-listed to join the event on Sunday and get one step closer to being on the UGLY Models books.
