We're big fans of Into The Gloss here at TBM. We're also big fans of Sara Ziff. So we're very happy about this:
On the subject of founding The Model Alliance, Ziff says,
Initially I approached established unions to see if they would accept models into their union, but I was turned down every single time. I don’t think people think of modeling as a job in the same way they understand that actors have unions, with maximum working hours when they’re on set. So I decided to start from scratch.
