Established in 2005, Cynthia Rosenberg Nelson, President of Caryn Model & Talent Management and Kathleen Longsderff, Director of NEMG, joined forces to host the European Model Showcase (“EMS”) in Paris, France. Cynthia & Kathleen first met in Paris while presenting models to European Agents for international placement and the idea of hosting EMS in the heart of the fashion industry was born … the rest is hard work and history!


Approved Directors from US, Canada and Europe invite their finest models to meet and network with European and Asian Agents. EMS limits Directors to bring fashion models who meet the strict age, height and size requirements of the fashion industry.  The Event begins with Orientation which includes a complete review of the event schedule, European & Asian model markets, types of contracts, and what to expect if an Agent is interested in signing you.


Agent Go-Sees are for Directors & Models. EMS arranges for Top Agents to travel in from surrounding markets (Paris, Milan, London, Munich, Barcelona, Tokyo, etc.) who are interested in signing new faces. Models have the opportunity to meet one on one and network with international agents. Model Portfolios can be electronic or hard copy and models need to have model composite to leave behind. Following Go-Sees are special callbacks where more in depth interviews take place. List of agencies who have attended

A deposit is required to pre arrange shoot, and remaining balance is due to photographer in euro on the day of shoot. Models are responsible to provide their own wardrobe.
