Sylvia's annually produces the largest and most professional fashion and talent show in South Georgia.
Ms. Sylvia began modeling when she was 14 years old. She started teaching classes only 2 years later, when she was 16. After teaching for years and growing a true love for the business, she decided to open her own modeling agency when she was 30.
Ms. Sylvia started off small but grew very quickly. At first, she had to use her living room as her runway room and placed mirrors all over her back walls. Soon enough that was not enough room, and she had to close in her carport so she could expand. It wasn’t long until even that wasn’t enough, and she had to move the business out of her home and into an actual building. She stayed at this new space for a few years, until she outgrew that place as well, and moved over to where the agency is now.
Sylvia’s Models & Talent has been open for 39 years and to this day Sylvia is in love with what she does. She loves teaching people and helping them succeed in the business. There is no greater joy to her than knowing that she was able to make a helpful impact on someone’s journey.
Misty quickly followed in her mother’s footsteps and began modeling when she was 4 years old. During her journey, she has had multiple print jobs and was blessed with the opportunity to tour with the Belk Runway Fashion Show. She toured across the Southeast, from Savannah, GA all the way up to Fredericksburg, VA…with a Serenade Designer Show in Charlotte, NC. Misty was the youngest model on tour at the time, and because of that she was able to gather wisdom, responsibility, time management and most importantly, compatibility and friendships with so many models.
She started teaching classes at 17 years old, realizing early on that she had a true passion for teaching. She loves being able to share and teach all the fantastic things she has learned over the years when it comes to the industry.
She is extremely passionate about producing and directing the Sylvia’s Annual Fashion Show.
Sylvia's Models & Talent as the Mother Agency
As the Mother - Agent, we are responsible for the development and career guidance of your child. This will include education of you, the parent, about the business, assistance with the grooming and marketing of your child, the model and placement in other markets besides our own that your child wishes to pursue.
During our years of developing young models we have found that establishing a strong working relationships with parents as well as models is beneficial to everyone. As this business can be very difficult for your children, our underlying philosophy became to establish a team between parent, model and agent in order to provide a hands-on career development program with long-term strategy planned in the initial stages-- a luxury that seems to be easily lost with larger agencies and our society's fast pace. This special strategy is tailored to the specific model and the lives of those involved around them. This in turn creates an understanding of what can be expected from each of the important components of the team and how important each one is to the other.
