>> Last week, the New York modeling agency scene experienced a great shakeup when Women and Supreme founder Paul Rowland and Ford women's division head Caroline Poznanski essentially switched places. The fallout is expected to take weeks to settle, but in the meantime, some models have already started switching agencies to stay with their original management — Tao Okamoto and Hanne Gaby Odiele among those reported yesterday, and today, word comes of more movement: Lakshmi Menon has followed her agent Poznanski to Supreme, while Ranya Mordanova, Daiane Conterato, Karolin Wolter are all said to have moved from Supreme to Ford.
Fashionista cites a source saying that Chanel Iman, too, has left Ford to follow her booker to Supreme, while it appears that Jacquelyn Jablonski is staying put at Ford for the time being. But the source also notes: “No one is clear if models are moving back and forth — it’s all up in the air.” In the same vein, The Imagist reports: "A new wrinkle emerged this morning around the allegation that the former head of one of the world's most powerful agencies is set to join a certain Dream Team currently in formation."
