Croydon born British supermodel Kate Moss has parted ways with the agency which made her recognised and gained the supermodel status within the fashion world nearly 30 years ago.

Modeling agency Storm Management discovered the British supermodel while returning home from a holiday with her family, discovered the British supermodel. Founder of the agency Sarah Doukas spotted what may have become the iconic figure she still seems to represent to this day at JFK airport in New York. Kate Moss was 14 at the time and had since then been represented by the same modelling agency. Storm management is based in the London Borough of Chelsea and was founded in 1987 by Sarah Doukas from her house in London with partner Richard Branson. Many a famous models and celebrities are represented by the agency which counts the names of infamous 90s model Cindy Crawford or more recent, a one Jourdan Dunn.

Kate Moss joined the agency 28 years ago which marked the start of her career. This move may be described as a new chapter for the model as well as for the modelling agency who may give other models the chance to appear on their books. The parting may see the supermodel pursuing business plans for the future and she remains  ‘in house’ for the deals which may be offered to her at some point. Kate Moss’ career may be described as long and successful as at the mere age of 42 she still remains an influential figure in the fashion world by still being to this day the face of many brands including cosmetic brand Rimmel or High Street clothing brand Mango where she co-modelled their clothes with 20 years younger model Cara Delevingne.

Kate Moss appeared on the cover of The Face magazine where she was photographed by late photographer Corinne Day in Black and White at the age of 16. The photoshoot was entitled ‘The 3rd summer of love’. This cover led the model to be being recognised and getting a growing interest from other fashion photographers. Calvin Klein approached the model in 1996 and she then became the face behind his brand representing what they may define then as the ‘heroin chic’ look she was mostly associated with at the time. Kate Moss’ career reached its peak in the 90s and she has since represented numerous prestigious brands as well as highstreet brands with the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Versace, Cavalli, Dior and Givenchy to name a few.

Her success within the fashion world led her to start designing her own fashion range for British high street store Topshop. Her collaboration with owner of the brand Sir Philip Green saw her releasing her first range for the store in the summer 2007 which included tea dresses, leather jackets, handbags which may be described as affordable for individuals taking interest in the model’s personal style which seems to be often photographed and talked about. Another of her business side included her collaboration with French luxury brand Longchamp which saw her designing her own bags. Kate Moss is also renowned for being the cover girl of many fashion magazines since her debut in the industry. She has featured in the cover of Vogue for a total of 36 times. In the next edition of Vogue magazine being released next month, Kate Moss is set to be the cover girl once more which aims at marking her 37th time on the magazine cover and aims at celebrating the Rolling Stones exhibition which opens at London Saatchi Gallery today.

Kate Moss may have departed from Storm agency last week however, another Moss still features in the agency’s books as little sister Lottie Moss is taking a step within the fashion industry following the successful ones of her sister.

How does Kate Moss remain a renowned figure even 28 years after her first step into the fashion world?
