Since our inception in 1987, Storm’s aim has been to offer 360° management based on the fundamental principles of strategy, opportunity and ownership.
Storm runs a development programme encouraging our young modelling talent to invest in their abilities. In this way we aim to give our talent the best possible careers, maximising their potential for the long-term and strategically offering the possibility to extent the scope of their activities into different areas whilst establishing ownership of their Intellectual Property, Trademarks and Brands.
Storm, the agency, is renowned internationally for having managed the careers of many of the world’s most iconic faces, including Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford, Cara & Poppy Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Lily Cole.
Sarah Doukas started the agency in her home in 1987. With Richard Branson as her business partner, she revolutionized the traditional modelling industry by launching the first UK agency to represent worldwide New Faces she had discovered herself and this became the hallmark of the Agency. Over the years Sarah has earned a reputation as the legendary “spotter”. 1988 is remembered as the year Sarah changed fashion when she spotted Kate Moss at a New York Airport.
Sarah has run the agency since the early days with her brother Simon Chambers, and he has been integral to the company’s development. Together they have diversified the business to incorporate brand & licensing opportunities for Storm clients.
2006 saw the launch of the Storm Artists division which sources prestige commercial opportunities for clients beyond fashion industry.
Recognising the impact of social & digital media, Storm Vision was launched in 2014 to manage talent for broadcast and new media.
Today Storm manages the careers of the brightest rising stars in fashion including Fran Summers, Giselle, Norman and Emily Driver.
Storm LA launched in 2019 to provide the same blend of innovation and expertise to talent management in the USA. Our focus is on developing the brightest stars and providing strategic career guidance and opportunities in fashion, beauty, lifestyle and media.
