NYFW: Liz and Olivia for Dennis Basso


We still have NYFW updates for you, so keep coming back to our blog to keep up with our models! The Dennis Basso show was not only amazing because of the gorgeous evening wear, it featured TWO of our models.  Liz Kennedy and Olivia Hamilton are two of our most promising models, and we love that they are friends who get to share this exciting journey together.  We can only imagine how excited they were to both book this fashion show!  Olivia was the show's opener as well, which for any model is a big deal, let alone a model in her Fashion Week.

Way to represent Pulse ladies, we couldn't be more proud of you both.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Sophie Skloss for Burberry


Happy Monday everyone!  Remember when we posted THIS about Sophie Skloss headed to London?  Well we can now reveal that she was headed there to meet with people at Burberry, which is one of the biggest fashion brands in the world.  The folks at Burberry loved our Sophie and she just walked in their Fall 2015 fashion show during London Fashion Week.  We are beside ourselves with excitement for Sophie, and think that this definitely qualifies as Major Moment Monday worthy! 

Keep checking back with us this week, because we will be finishing up our coverage from NYFW and we have more exciting things to share with you from London Fashion Week.

NYFW: Alisha Judge for Jenny Packham


Alisha Judge is popping up everywhere during NYFW, and we couldn't be happier about it.  She OPENED the Jenny Packham show.  In the modeling world opening any show is a big deal, but opening Jenny Packham during fashion week is a major modeling milestone!  Jenny Packham is a favorite of a lot of celebrities, and is a wardrobe staple of The Duchess of Cambridge.  We love thinking about our Alisha, who we scouted in Oregon, now walking the major runways for fashion's elite.  To see the rest of the pics from the show click HERE (and note that Alisha is the cover picture with the review).  Stay tuned for more of what Alisha has been up to this week, because this girl is on a roll!

NYFW: Badgley Mischka

We spotted our girl Liz on Badgley Mischka's Instagram

Our fashion week coverage will be going for the next week or so, because our girls are working so much we can hardly keep up!  (That is the best problem to have!)  The Badgley Mischka fashion show just happened, and TWO of our models (and real life best friends) walked the runway.  Liz Kennedy and Olivia Hamilton both killed it on one of the more hotly anticipated runways of the season.  Liz gave us a peek backstage at the killer hair, makeup and nails for the show.  We are so proud of our girls and we can't wait to share with you what else they do this week!

The "Perfect" Female Body


There is a lot of talk about having a "perfect" body, but one rarely ever hears someone talking about how they have actually attained it.  We loved THIS ARTICLE we just read about how the ideal female body has changed over the years.  

In an industry like modeling, having a flawless figure is part of the job.  At Pulse Management we are not immune to the industry's standards, but we also can have a say in what we think is beautiful and who we want to represent.  When we signed Hye Rim Park, there weren't really any working Asian supermodels at the time.  We saw the potential in Hye and we worked and worked until she was booking campaigns and on the cover of multiple issues of Vogue.

The same goes for our models' figures.  We will never tell a model she needs to weigh a certain amount, the actual pounds don't matter to us.  We will tell a model that we need her to be at the ideal size for her specific body.  We also give our models suggestions and tips to get to their peak physical form in a healthy way.  Crash diets and going without eating are not good for our models and are not sustainable in the long term.  Some of our models have very thin builds, others are more athletic, some are more curvy, and we celebrate that.  We just want our models to look their personal best, not like someone else's standards of beauty.  In the long run, you can only be yourself, and when you are confident in that you are your most beautiful.

And She's Off!


Sophie Skloss sent us these picture of her recent flight to London.  Sophie and her mom headed to England for a fitting with a MAJOR designer, and for a few go-sees for fashion week.  I wish we could tell you what designer she is meeting with because this is a huge coup for a model.  As soon as we are allowed to tell you who she is meeting with, we will because we can't wait to tell you all!  Have a great trip Sophia, we can't wait to hear all about it.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Ali Stephens for Nine West


Spring is rapidly approaching and seeing these pictures is making us excited for Spring fashions! For today's Major Moment Monday, we are looking back on when Ali Stephens was featured in the Spring 2013 Advertising Campaign for Nine West.  You may have noticed that Ali is regularly featured in our Major Moment Mondays, and it is because her career has been so incredible.  We scouted her, and then developed her into the major model that you see today!  We are so proud of her and her career, and being a part of it has been one of our most major accomplishments to date.

Looking Good Liz!


A couple of major model milestones have occurred lately for Liz Kennedy.  Not only does she now have a profile on models.com, it now has a stunning photo of her for her profile pic.  I can't emphasize enough how exciting it is to have a profile on models.com because it basically means that the industry is recognizing you as one of their own.  

Also, we posted about Liz's first fashion week a few months ago (you can read about it HERE), but while I was browsing on style.com I saw this picture of her.  She walked the runway for Rebecca Taylor, and this still shot shows how amazing she looked while doing it.  Congrats Liz, we are proud of you, and hope to keep seeing your work pop up while we are getting our fashion fix.

Throwback Thursday: Then and Now


It may be a little late, but for today's Throwback Thursday we are featuring one of our best Utah discoveries, Amanda Chamberlain.  We found Amanda in her homestate, and then launched her career off of the above polaroids and a killer test shoot.  Since we started Amanda's career she has worked in New York, Miami, Paris, Italy and various places in Asia.  Amanda has walked runways and graced the pages of some of fashion's finest outlets.  It's amazing how many places modeling can take a person, and we are glad to be a part of the journey!
