Well, this is interesting. First the sale of the Miss Universe Organisation, and now this…
A few days ago, it was revealed that models and staff from Donald Trump’s modelling agency were leaving to set up and join a brand new agency of their own… and today comes the news that The Trump Organisation is bowing out of the modelling industry altogether.
“The Trump Organisation is choosing to exit the modelling industry,” Corinne Nicolas, the president of the company, wrote in an email over the weekend.
“On the heels of the recent sale of the Miss Universe Organisation, the company is choosing to focus on their core businesses in the real estate, golf and hospitality space.
“Trump Models, during its 18-year run, was an amazing success and we are immensely proud of the opportunities that we have provided to so many talented individuals.
It’s not clear when the agency will officially close, but we can expect it to be fairly imminent.
We’ll let you know more news as and when we get it.
