Working with all the slim models like Kate Moss, Carolyn Murphy or Kate Upton, there comes a question what does Ivan think about the plus-size idea in modeling? Ivan and his IMG signed with a few plus-size models and one of them was Ashley Graham. So he supports the idea as it is prosperous for the industry.

Bart doesn’t forget about male models and he supports their talent. He is for example fond of Presley Gerber.

This great man also revealed the secret key to IMG’s success when he said: “We just have all of these resources that other agencies don’t have… This business is always about the next generation.

So guys, if you’re the next generation all you need is IMG Models!
