ABOUT THE FOUNDER

Charles Stuart, Founder and President
Over 44 Years Experience in the Fashion Industry

With over 32 years experience as an international model agent and owner of the very successful Charles Stuart Agencies, and prior to this over 12 years in the fashion business. Charles Stuart has been able to combine his extensive knowledge of the modeling industry with his connections to the world's leading international agents to create one of the most important modeling & talent conventions Faces West.

It all began in 1967 on Carnaby Street in London when Charles met at a photo shoot with none other than Twiggy, the Super Model of the 60's. In the early 70's he became a fashion buyer and then worked with a John Casablancas franchise.

In 1982 Charles decided that it was time to open an agency of his own in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The modeling industry was booming and in 1984 Charles was able to develop a network of franchises throughout Western Canada.

By 1986 the market for models in Japan, Taipei and Korea was enormous and Charles seized the market for North American models who had dreams of making money in Asia.

In 1992 Charles developed the very successful Faces West Model & Talent Convention. Agents, Scouts and managers from all over the world make Faces West an absolute must on their scouting schedules.

In 1997 Charles developed another successful 2 day model and talent search called Model & Talent Search Canada West. Once again agents, scouts and managers from all over the world make this event a must on their scouting schedules.

In 1999, Charles was elected President of the newly formed North America Modeling Association (N.A.M.A.) with members from across Canada and the U.S.A.

In 2004, Charles discovered supermodel Coco Rocha, Coco is rated in the top five models worldwide and has appeared on the cover of every major fashion magazine.

Charles Stuart's ability to keep pace with the ever-changing modeling and talent industries has gained him the respect and support or the world's leading agencies.

If you are an aspiring model or actor or an agency director who would like to provide best exposure possible for your models and talent, Charles Stuart's Faces West Convention is the place to be discovered.
