Elite was founded in Paris in 1972 and now has over 30 offices worldwide, including Paris, Milan, London, Madrid, New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Hong Kong, and Shanghai.

The company has launched and nurtured the careers of some of the world’s best top models, including Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, Gisele Bündchen, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Naomi Campbell.

Furthermore, the contest of the brand, Elite Model Look, which has been held since its inception in 1983, attracts hundreds of thousands of model entrants from 50 countries each year and is considered as one of the most anticipated fashion modeling show in the world.

And we believe that this beauty pageant represents more than just a prestigious competition for models, but also an incredible chance to showcase their talents to a global audience, while winning exposure for their work in the industry.

In this way, we are committed to being the number one agency in Japan, supporting the development of top models from Tokyo to the world.
