Therese Bengtsson is apart of the new movement here in NYC of model-run-for-models businesses. As founder of ethical modeling agency Role Models Management, based out of NYC and LA, Therese is on the cutting edge of the new movement in fashion.

We also want everyone to feel like we’re in on something important, together, and that this is not a win-or-lose game. As long as we believe in and fight for a better tomorrow we’re all winners and that’s the philosophy that makes it so much fun to work these long hours every day.
