Today the Brown Modelling Agency is a full-service model and talent agency in Austin, Texas. It started its journey as Wilhelmina Austin in March of 2010. In 2015, Wilhelmina Austin merged with Heyman Talent-South to create the Brown Agency. The purpose of the merger was to expand the pool of talent and serve a broader client base. Justin Brown, the president, is a former model and agent. So, he understands the importance of hiring the best talent and serving the clients’ expectations. The Brown Agency manages the careers of more than 450 models. Its models have worked with brands like L’oreal, Louis Vuitton, Dell, Toyota, and more. Its models have roamed the catwalks of Fashion Weeks in Austin, Dallas, and New York. Brown Agency hires locally from central Texas and develops the talents to provide the best of the best for both the local market and the larger market. Its professional models and actors work in fashion, film, TV, trade shows, and conventions.
At the Wilhelmina Austin Launch Party in 2010, Justin Brown stated that his objective was to serve the local needs of the Austin, Dallas, and Houston communities. The launch party at Ashton Pool Deck showcased a runway show with local talents modeling fashions by Austin designer Linda Asaf. It made a splash in the Austin fashion scene, and the entrance of Wilhelmina into central Texas was seen as a catalyst for great change in the local fashion and modeling industry.
Under Justin Brown’s leadership, Wilhelmina Austin saw rapid growth as a modeling agency. So, it made sense for it to merge with Heyman Talent-South, one of the most successful acting talent agencies in Austin. After the merger, the company was relaunched as Brown Agency during the Formula One Party in Austin. With a fashion show, the new agency got a chance to showcase its potential to the central Texas community. The event lived up to the hype and excitement that was generated through the creation of this company.
Brown Modelling Agency has continued creating excitement in the local community. On July 4th, 2016, it hosted a party in Austin sponsored by North Shore, Deep Eddy Vodka, SkylesBayne and Still + Sea. The party was targeted to recruit the best local talents. The popularity and the scale of the event show that Brown Modelling Agency is still on the right track to dominate the market as a full-service agency.
