Riga, Latvia: behind the scenes at Dandy Model Management

Dandy Model Management entrance. Riga, Latvia is full of so many different types of architectural references as you can see from the rooftop of this building, which is Parisian in reference.

During the Soviet Era, all the designers were based out the building that Dandy Model Management is currently headquartered in.

Nils Raumanis, founder of Dandy Model Management. Nils discovered Ginta Lapina and Ieva Laguna among other top models.

THEN: Dmitrijis Kopeikins as a model

NOW: Dmitrijis is now the Director of Dandy Models, while Nils focuses on the scouting end of the business.

Dandy Models is a boutique high fashion modeling agency run in Riga. It's run like a true New York agency, profiting from campaigns and bookings, as opposed to model training schools, a common approach in the Baltics. Dandy is #1 in the Baltics for male model representation.

Ginta Lapina

Dandy's Dog

A motorcycle motif theme runs throughout the offices.

I just got back to New York from a Baltic State tour including Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. While in Riga, I had the opportunity to visit with the Dandy Model Management Team, the mother agency to Ginta Lapina and Ieva Laguna.

The one thing that impressed me most about Dandy Model Management beyond the fact that their founder Nils discovered Ginta Lapina and Ieva Laguna, was how their agency plans to integrate the internet with it's agency goals.

I'll be shooting more behind the scenes action including tonights Victoria's Secret show, so stay tuned for fresh updates!
