Savalas Models is home to the North East's strongest force of talent. The agency continues to successfully deliver inspirational talent to brands on a worldwide scale.
Founder and Director Terry Costello, established Savalas Models in 2014 from his home in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
After recognising a window of opportunity to establish an agency that discovers a new generation of unseen talent in the North, Terry made it his mission to break new ground in an untapped market.
Even though Savalas Models was launched with only a handful of models, the agency turned heads in the industry with their impactful and memorable faces. The talent the agency represented was waving the Savalas flag on runways worldwide, which was followed by a diverse range of new clientele. From this, the demand for new faces from Savalas Models grew.
From the beginning, the agency was keen to introduce direct bookings into main fashion markets within the UK such as London and Manchester. This move put the North East on the map and helped broaden the range of opportunities in the region. This confirmed to the industry that there was exceptional talent outside of the main fashion cities in the UK.
The agency has since worked with and maintained relationships with leading fashion brands such as ASOS, END. Clothing, JD Sports and Pretty Little Thing to name a few. As well as this, Savalas has strong connections with respected creatives in the industry, such as top casting agents who demand talent for their clients. This can include bookings for fashion shows, campaigns, lookbooks and editorials.
It doesn't stop there, the agents at Savalas have placed their models on your screens in various advertising campaigns such as New Balance and Rimmel London. Models from Savalas have also starred in music videos for major artists, such as Sam Fender's hit single 17 Going Under.
This has been achieved by the dedicated team who are the driving force behind each achievement the agency has made. With a focus on consistency and authenticity, the team of bookers are dedicated to the development and nurturing of models throughout their career. Always with mental well-being in mind, the team provide expert tailored management to all talent individually. Continuous support and guidance with a personable and professional approach to both models and their families has been Savalas' ethos from the beginning.
In recent years, Savalas Models has been documented in national press. Founder and Director Terry Costello has been interviewed by various newspapers such as The Chronicle Live. Costello has been an influential voice for various BBC radio shows, where he has discussed all things relating to the fashion industry and entrepreneurship.
