About Us

Founded by Debra Burns in November 1988, Boss Model Management has pioneered the management and marketing of home grown talent to a worldwide audience. For 3 decades we have evolved to become one of the most active and respected Model Agencies in the UK. Boss Models is well known in the great fashion capitals of the world, and we continue to source, develop and select the finest models to ensure successful assignments.

Iconic beauty Karen Elson walked into our offices at the age of 15. Tall, incredibly pale, red haired and ethereal, Karen embodies the individuality we celebrate at Boss Models. On her 18th Birthday Karen shot the front cover of Italian Vogue with Steven Meisel, which catapulted her toward Supermodel status. She remains in the spotlight, captivating audiences with her unquestionable and unique sense of style and mystery.



What sets Boss apart from the competition is the care, knowledge and attention to detail in our day to day work. With impeccable and proactive scouting, coaching and development we take the model from absolute beginner to international runway. Boss models undergo a rigorous selection process and only those whom we are passionate about make it onto the books. Our extremely motivated, dedicated and enthusiastic staff perform with relentlessly high standards of customer service. Interpreting the brief with sensitivity and understanding whilst being able to respond rapidly and with intelligence is our hallmark. We don’t stand still, we constantly evolve, and there is never a dull moment. Embracing the future, but respecting the past, we regularly challenge ourselves to raise the bar in terms of model standards and customer service.

Our philosophy is simple. We conduct our business based on the traditional values of honesty, trust, respect, transparency and integrity. We care about results and this is our focus for the models, artists and creatives we represent, together with the valued clients we serve.
