Jan '14
IMG Models, a division of IMG, the global sports, fashion and media company announced the agency has exclusively signed five models, Ashley Graham, Danielle Redman, Julie Henderson, Inga Eirksdottir and Marquita Pring.
 
The women, who have all achieved considerable success as plus models, joined the agency as a group and will be represented by IMG Models worldwide for all commercial business endorsement opportunities in addition to print and runway modeling.
 
In making the announcement, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of IMG Models, Ivan Bart, said, “These signings signify a new and important initiative for IMG Models. We pride ourselves on working with and representing a talented and diverse international portfolio of clients across age, size, gender and beauty in the business and will continue to break down boundaries and defy the typical stereotypes that have existed in the modeling industry for the past few decades.”
 
Ashley Graham
A burgeoning fashion entrepreneur, Ashley Graham’s curves caused her first Lane Bryant ad campaign to be banned from primetime TV in 2012 and later that year, she was named ‘Plus-Size Model of the Year’.  Graham is currently working on her third collection of branded lingerie.
 
Danielle Redman
Discovered at the age of 14 in a small town in Iowa, Danielle Redman is a favorite print model among international publications in Europe, especially Germany.  In 2012, she became involved with The Komera Project, a charity organization empowering young girls to get access to education in Rwanda.
 
Julie Henderson
Julie Henderson holds a BA in Marketing from the University of Notre Dame where she played women’s basketball on scholarship.  Henderson is one of the co-founders of Curves for Change, a non-profit organization providing a platform through which professional fashion models collectively engage in philanthropic work.  She has modeled for Vogue and L’Oréal and is pursuing an acting career in both theater and film and TV.
 
Inga Eirksdottir
This Icelandic beauty started her career straight-size modeling and recently transitioned to plus size modeling.   An avid art lover, Eirksdottir has produced and was curator of three award-winning photography shows in New York.  Eirksdottir was also previously involved in the charity Curves for Change.  While at the organization, she managed relationships with the sponsors and served on the board.
 
Marquita Pring
Considered one of the top-tier plus models in the industry today, Marquita Pring’s career soared after she appeared in the editorial ‘Curves Ahead’ shot for V Magazine in 2010.  Soon after, Pring landed a prominent feature in the Vogue Italia editorial ‘Sogne di Donna.’  She has walked the runway for Jean-Paul Gaultier and has already been featured in two ad campaigns for Levi’s.
