With New York Fashion Week beginning on Thursday September 6, all the modeling agencies are working overtime to ensure their models appear in as many runway shows as possible. In order to do so, agencies create show packages highlighting their staff in the best possible way. Hands down, the best comp cards this season go to Re:Quest Model Management. They brilliantly channeled Calvin Klein’s infamous banned ads from the 1990s as the creative narrative for their composite sellers.
Remember the ads that had a creepy casting director asking models to take off their shorts and other inappropriate questions and requests? Shot by famed photographer Steven Meisel, the television spots were pulled from the air due to their uncomfortable 70s “porn star casting” vibe. Since the 90s are making a comeback, Re:Quest snapped their male models using the same wood paneling backdrop. The result is pure awesome. Check out a few of the comp cards below featuring Homorazzi.com favorites Benjamin Eidem and Arthur Kulkov.
