The Wilhelmina Austin fashion event held in Austin, TX proved that fashion has found its tipping point! Austin, known for its collegiate atmosphere, great weather, sports teams and amazing music scene can now officially add “fashion magnet” to its resume.
The fashion show showcased classic and fresh fashion with a modern twist from local designer Linda Asaf whose neutral color palette of grey, white and off-white was anything but boring! Asaf’s collection, featuring airy and flowing fabrics, gorgeous lace and elongating details wowed the crowd and left them wondering what was in store for next season.
Not being a company who is satisfied with just one level of success, Wilhelmina Austin acquired Heyman Talent-South re-launched as The Brown Agency specializing in modeling and acting talent! Wilhelmina Austin specialized in fashion and modeling and Heyman Talent-South specialized in acting talent, so joining forces to make one power-house agency just made sense.
Sounds like a match made in heaven and it’s all down to Justin Brown who built the successful talent agency JB Models and Talent back in 2008. The agency was so successful that it caught the eye of modeling power-house Wilhelmina who then licensed JB Models and Talent. From there Justin Brown became the head of Wilhelmina Austin. Today, Justin Brown is the new “fearless leader,” CEO and president of The Brown Agency. Founder of Heyman Talent-South, Michael B. Bonnée, will continue to shape the acting talent coming out of Austin as the head of the theatrical division of The Brown Agency.
By combining Heyman Talent-South and Wilhelmina Austin clients will have a one stop shop for experienced talent in both fashion and acting. Also, talent will know that their careers are in the best possible hands with exposure to some of the largest brands in the world such as Louis Vuitton, Dell, Toyota, L’Oréal. To date, the Brown Agency has featured models in Austin Fashion Week, Dallas Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, Miami Swim Week and countless other shows.
