And thanks to Mr. Ford for following up on your request, I appreciate his kindness in referencing those articles. Things have been very busy this season (for which I am pleased!), and as a result I had the opportunity to stay online as much as I would like. The articles are useful, but in need of updating. I mention models who are more likely to be seen in a wax museum than on the pages of the major magazines these days, and the agencies are not as committed to staying on message as they used to be.
I should also write a bit about how (and why) the models from southern Brazil and the Eastern European countries now dominate the business. Also there is something interesting to note about how Asia has gone from an exotic but minor part of the business to one of the major growth markets (and rising rapidly as we move towards the 2008 Olympics in Beijing).
