Bonnée, was just as thrilled to about the combined companies to make their expertise a lasting opportunity for everyone.




Brown Modeling Agency models have been seen on runways such as New York Fashion Week, Austin Fashion Week, and other shows across the country. Justin Brown actually got his start working as a model while in college but soon became curious on what happened behind the cameras. He showed models how to operate like pros and then started recruiting them for agencies he worked for. This became a great way for him to get over being a shy kid but he was able to help models do the same thing.


Brown doesn’t sell pipe dreams to models just to get them to work for them. They pride themselves on not making promises they cannot keep by managing expectations models may have. Mr. Brown experienced the business in New York and Los Angeles which gave him greater insight on how to get a model into a bigger market. The agency soon started sending models out for print jobs, commercials and even roles to play in movies. They continue to hire local and look nationally to place talented hired models.
