Our philosophyCRYSTAL MODELS, founded by Renée Dujac-Cassou in 1984, represents some of the industry’s best female models in Paris.
Building on her many years’ experience as a booker in other Parisian agencies, she brought to her own agency a trained eye and a talent for anticipating what clients are looking for. Her knowledge of the industry’s needs led to the creation of a second agency, SLIDES MODELS, in 1999 in response to an ever-growing demand for a more edgy, editorial type of model. While still a separate agency, SLIDES MODELS operates in tandem with CRYSTAL MODELS.
In 2012, after almost three decades of direction and devotion, Renée Dujac-Cassou passes the reins of the CRYSTAL MODEL AGENCY'S group to Jean-Paul Bérenguier. As CEO of CRYSTAL MODEL AGENCY’S group Jean-Paul Berenguier leads with a primary objective: to further the growth and position of CRYSTAL Model Management.
As one of the most stable and long-standing agencies in Paris, Crystal/Slides is recognized the world over for their trademark of professionalism and respect towards its clients, models and partner agencies.
Independent and boutique by design, Crystal/Slides is based on the foundation of providing personal, strategic and effective management for their select group of models while nurturing long-term, successful relationships with their clients. The boards of Crystal/Slides reflect an eclectic mix of both edgy and classic beauties—and new faces as well as seasoned professionals. Though the model roster is kept deliberately small, CRYSTAL/SLIDES casts a wide net in the type of beauty we look for, providing our clientele with the highest-quality choice of talent on the market. Through continuous and targeted scouting our never-ending mission is to discover the stars of tomorrow and develop their full potential for a successful and long-term career.
Crystal/Slides have developed the careers of such names as Edyta Zajac (Flower Tag by Kenzo perfume campaign), Lana Zakocela (Nivea Campaigns), Hanaa Ben Abdesslem, Amanda Hendrick, Kristina Salinovic, Chantal Abbott (press shows Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Martin Margiela, Junya Watanabe, Petit Bateau Campaign), Anaïs Pouliot, Bérénice Marlohe, Natalia Belova (Muse of Olivier Theyskens for Rochas), Ujjwala Raut and Karolina Kurkova to name a few.
