AGC Let us start by saying we're proud to have new model
Kara Green on the cover of our first issue, which is currently
in production, so look for the first release soon. She's
wearing designs from the designer DaJon Johnson and
photographed by noted New York Fashion Photographer
and Makeup Artist Darryl Jones with whom we had the
opportunity to talk with.   Since taking on his new executive
position with the company  we wondered where does he find
the time to travel from New York, LA, Miami, Atlanta to look
for new talent and if you want to shoot with him it's a little
more difficult if you’re not 5'9”, have a unique interesting
look or hot on social media.  He's only interested in those
who take it very seriously and he has worked on both ends
of the spectrum when it comes to Fashion, Entertainment
and has now become the new Creative Director of
"American Girl Collection"  Fashion Magazine since leaving
Focus Magazine of Virginia.

Fashion Modelling is considered to have originated in the mid-nineteen century in
Paris. The first ever fashion model is believed to be Marie Vernet Worth in 1892
who was married to fashion designer Charles Worth. The trend towards fashion
modelling did not seem to increase immensely considering the success of the Worth’
s. This was mainly due to the fact that models in the early 20th century were not
seen as respected individuals and were not considered to have an acceptable
profession. However, this view in society began to change in 1924 when Jean Patou
selected only American white woman to model his clothes. This use of selectiveness
allowed Patou’s clients to identify more with his designs but more importantly
allowed the model profession to become more socially acceptable in those less
politically correct times. The openings of the first modelling agencies in London and
the US shortly after further emphasized the acceptance of modelling as an
appropriate job within society. At this time model types were also evolving and it was
not just the typical tall and slender models that were being employed.

Models started to develop into super models where they received incredible
amounts of money. For example, Lisa Fossagrives, who some people claim as the
first ever supermodel, appeared in numerous high fashion magazines throughout
the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s. Janice Dickinson in the 1960s who is more widely
respected as the first ever supermodel became the highest paid model, earning
$2,000 per day. She was on the cover of several European magazines including
Vogue and Cosmopolitan that were also well established fashion magazines. During
the 1960s and the 1970s more and more supermodels became apparent due to
their growing popularity with society. Namely – Twiggy (London – born) and Cheryl
Tiegs (Minnesota).

The prominence of the supermodel era continued to grow well into the 1980s and
1990s with models such as Claudia Schiffer, Elle Macpherson, Cindy Crawford, Kate
Moss and Naomi Campbell. Men also got their turn, with the likes of Mark Wahlberg,
Joel West and Markus Schenkenberg, who was hailed as the world´s first male
supermodel, becoming household names. All of these models became the elite in
the modelling industry and to some extent still are.
Let there be fashion, just fashion someone once said. DaJon Johnson spends a lot of time working on his craft. He should,
because by the time he's twenty-five he should have made a name for himself. If not, then his clothing will speak volumes and
echo his name for years to come. But there's one thing to think about and that's the competition. So how does a young
designer cope? Design, sow and repeat, then do a show because in the end it doesn't matter if people aren't buying. You're
not staying current, trendy or setting the bar high enough that people will never forget. But for this young designer, how can
you forget when you take one look at what he's creating? The beauty, the color, the shapes and the sizes that are custom
one of a kind made specifically for you and your tastes. His stunning gowns capture your imagination and pull you in, then
you know you’re fabulous! If you walk the red carpet or just down the street, his designs will stop everyone right in their
