Owner Lari Nelson Fashion Group / THE AGENCY Modeling & Talent

25+ Years Experience
San Antonio, Texas Member

Lari has been in the fashion industry for over 30 years and grew up in a family that owned a factory, retail stores and showroom in the major markets. For the past 15 years she has trained models at her company THE AGENCY Model & Talent and through her guidance and grooming, has succeeded in sending off many to the larger markets, including New York, Japan, Milan, and the list just continues. Her models grow into their own walking shows for the major fashion houses and back home, she continues to scout and seek her next shooting stars. With decades of honorable service to her fashion community, the city and the industry, Lari recently won the first Texas Fashion Industry Professional of the Year Award at the 2019 San Antonio Fashion Awards and continues to be a mother agency to her “model children” afar and at home.

“My family owned a factory, retail stores and showrooms in the major markets, so I have a great admiration for Texas Fashion because, I know it’s hard work! Now with over 15 years of training models and sending them off to larger markets under my belt, I can understand the entire process of the fashion industry on a deeper level and am incredibly proud to pass on my knowledge as a proud representative and leader of the Texas Fashion Industry.”
