Thailand’s Apple Modeling Agency Opening All-Trans LA Branch

Apple Model Management L.A. Director Cecilio Asuncion and his transgender models.

The Bangkok based Apple Modeling Agency back in November decided to open up a branch of their local office there dedicated specifically to promoting trans models.  

Business must be booming, because they are now opening up a trans specific branch office in Los Angeles.

While trans modelshave had a long distinguished historyin 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 LAis 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.
