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 tracks.
