Daphni Hilton's Chinese Tear Sheets

We've said it before but one of the most rewarding parts of the work we do is getting to give our models the chance to travel and see the world in a way that they probably wouldn't have if they did not start modeling.  This beauty is Daphni Hilton, who we discovered in her home state of Utah.  Since we signed Daphni she has traveled all over, and these photos are from some of the work she did while in China.  We love these pretty images and we can't wait to see what Daphni does next.

In Their Own Words: Karsyn and Dean Bartruff

We have posted about our model Karsyn Bartruff a few times lately.  Lucky Karsyn has been traveling around the world for modeling jobs, and is experiencing a lot of exciting successes.  We thought you all might want to hear from Karsyn and her mom, about how she got started in the industry, and why she chose Pulse Management.  If you want to be a model, it is always beneficial to hear first hand from other models.

Throwback Thursday: Guess Who?!

Happy (Throwback) Thursday everyone! Today's TBT picture is Pulse Management model and scout Kayla Pointer.  Kayla was scouted in her hometown of Portland by our scouting director Lacey.  Soon she began scouting for us as well.  We love having her as part of our team, and we love seeing this throwback picture of her as a little girl.  Kayla you have grown up into a beautiful woman, and we are proud to have you as part of Pulse.

The Loss of a Legend: Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta

Yesterday the fashion world lost one of its finest.  The incomparably talented Oscar de la Renta passed away at the age of 82, and the fashion community is mourning this great man.  While reading various tributes to Mr. de la Renta online what stood out to me most is what a kind and loving man he was.  His designs were worn by royalty, multiple First Ladies, celebrities and most recently he designed the wedding dress for Amal Alamuddin who wed George Clooney. To read more about this amazing designer, check out this tribute from

Pulse Management's Hye Rim Park had the privilege of working with Oscar de la Renta on many occasions, so we are posting a few of her looks from his runway shows over the years.  She was a lucky model to have worked for such a talented designer on so many occasions.

MAJOR MOMENT MONDAY: Karsyn for Harper's Bazaar

It would have been enough for us just to see the tear sheets of Karsyn Bartruff's editorial for Harper's Bazaar Sinagapore, but this behind the scenes video is the icing on the cake.  Karsyn looks like a glamorous Hollywood film star from the 30s, and we always like to be able to share behind the scenes footage from shoots.  It is fun to see the finished pictures from an editorial and then see footage showing how they captured those images.  Congrats on your editorial and this video feature Karsyn, they are both major!
