Carole and Head of New Faces, Annie, are in New York meeting agencies to find out who the new, hottest models are. There, they will negotiate and ‘trade’ some of their own models to have the best girls from New York on Premier’s books, and have them flown to the UK for London Fashion Week. Leomie, one of Premier’s rising starts, is also followed in New York as she goes from casting to catwalk, landing some of the biggest shows for New York Fashion Week, and beginning to realise her incredible potential.
Back at Premier, there’s tension between commercial booker John, his fellow editorial bookers, and his boss. Issues are arising around whether the editorial, more high-end prestige bookings, are taking precedence over the less edgy, but much more lucrative side of the agency.
Carole and Annie return to prepare for London Fashion Week and go over which New York girls will be managed by which bookers. They have found a selection of commercial ‘money’ girls for John, but there is no guarantee he will find them suitable.
