Atlanta, Georgia (PressExposure) March 05, 2009 -- It's official, Atlanta is now the rival of trendy cities like New York and Los Angeles! Thanks to the DBC Beauty & Fashion Agency, Atlanta has become a place where beauty and fashion industry talent is represented and linked with films, commercials, fashion shows, and music videos. The DBC Beauty & Fashion Agency has provided a way for industry talent to be hired by major productions; and, according to the agency's Chief Executive Officer, Quan-Lanae Green, this addition to the Atlanta market is going to make it easier for Georgia artists to land jobs that will take them to the next level in their careers.
Established in August of 2008, the DBC Beauty & Fashion Agency has already received over 350 portfolios and resumes from makeup artists, hair stylists, wardrobe stylists, and nail care professionals in the state of Georgia. The number is significantly higher, if you include portfolios and resumes sent in from other states including Virginia, Alabama, and Tennessee. Although many artists apply, only a few are chosen to be represented by the agency. When asked about the selection process, the agency's CEO stated, "Because we're the only agency in Atlanta, everyone is going to be watching us, and we have to make sure we set the highest standard for our industry and our clients". That would explain why candidates must go through two rounds of interviews, reference and background checks, and a thorough "talent analysis".
Although the selection process could be perceived as daunting, the outcome is rewarding for all parties involved. The agency acquires marketable talent, the talent expands their exposure and builds clientele, and the client feels secure that they are being sent artists who are well skilled and equipped to meet their beauty and fashion needs. Most importantly, makeup artists, cosmetologists, and fashion stylists in Atlanta now have an official place where they can be represented and connected with the people who have the power to make sure that they will stay afloat in this economy.
