History of Premiere

Premiere Model Management was founded in 1993 by Christine Harris. With her degree from Florida State University, Christine built Premiere Model Management from a small local company to an international agency that has represented models all over the world. 

Christine became interested in the industry as a child when her mom was a model in New York City. Fast forward to Christine working as a model for 3-4 years in college, she realized that the modeling industry is very overwhelming and confusing. She decided to start her own agency with the purpose of helping models be successful in a constantly changing industry. Keeping it in the family, her daughter Summer is now the New Faces Director. After growing up in the office with her mom, traveling to jobs and shows all over the world, Summer joined the team after finishing her degree at FAU. 

One month after Premiere's grand opening in 1993 our destiny began to unfold. A trip to South Beach, Miami with four potential new face models turned into a meeting with the seven best worldwide agencies. This fateful trip resulted in business agreements to work and place talent with best of the best in the modeling industry. All four Premiere models received contracts and—to highlight the day—Christine received an introduction to Gianni Versace himself! This event turned into a very prestigious campaign for our new models, as well as for the top fashion icon.

Staying on the cutting edge of this fast-paced industry is not an easy task.


Christine continues to maintain the honesty and integrity of Premiere Model Management, which we see as the primary reason for our continued success and longevity. Each new model and family is given a tour, a consultation about the possibilities of the industry, and suggestions on obtaining the tools to be successful.


While encouraging and maintaining a positive outlook in this versatile business, Premiere is honest in reminding the new face that there are never any guarantees. We can promise a quality interest and ambitious effort in giving you the best chance possible.

We're truly thankful for their numerous professional accolades which have brought Premiere Model Management world-renown success.
