BANY was birthed to provide models with the tools needed
to be marketable in this fashion industry.
September 1, 2010 marked the birth date for the
(BANY). BANY is pronounced BAH - NIY,
and represents two great cities Baltimore and New York.
BANY is the modeling agency of Butterfly
Productions, LLC, which is the home of Baltimore Fashion
Week. This idea was conceived by the
Executive Producer of Butterfly Productions, and
although the idea was conceived years ago, the
co-founder Nixon felt it was time to give it life.
That realistic feeling could only be achieved
with Selina Powell, co-founder of BANY and is the New
York representative of the agency.
"To be able to start this agency right here in my
hometown of Baltimore and also have a New York
partnership with Selina Powell, is yet another dream
come true. Now models from Baltimore and the
surrounding cities will be able to experience that New
York feel of fashion with BANY," stated
The creative minds of these two individuals will only
create a higher sense of synergy within the fashion
industry. Not only will
clients with experienced, professional, and poised
models for runway projects, but BANY will also provide
clients with the look needed for editorial, print, and
Since fashion comes in various sizes and ages, BANY will
also have a BANY+ department for models sizes
10 and up. Also added is BANY LS
(Lifestyle) for the more seasoned model.
Powell stated, "There's a real need of change in the
fashion industry for all models. Sharan
and I are just the right pair to make this happen.
BANY agency has just what it takes to do it. With
BANY the fashion world will not know what hit them.
At BANY the change starts here."
In other words, whatever your need is for fashion, BANY
will have a team of models ready to deliver.
