European Model Showcase

Established in 2005, Cynthia Rosenberg Nelson, President of Caryn Model & Talent Management and Kathleen Longsderff, Director of New England Models Group joined forces to host the European Model Showcase in Paris, France. Cynthia & Kathleen first met in Paris while presenting models to European Agents for placement and the idea of hosting a European Model Showcase was born … the rest is hard work and history!

With 35+ years combined industry experience, Cynthia & Kathleen attribute their placement success to selecting models that meet the age, height and size requirements to work in European markets. Of course ‘the look’ and ‘the personality’ also are very important elements for a model to be successful!
