My name is Lorna Cumming; I started modeling at the age of 13 and so started a lifelong love affair of not just the fashion industry but of the entertainment industry as a whole. My career in the entertainment industry has spanned over 35 years in which I have been an international model and traveled to places like Greece, Milan and New York. I have been an actor and I am a certified make-up artist. I have taught runway, posing classes and commercial workshops.
At 24 years of age I decided to branch out further and become a Booker for models and then eventually an agent for actors. Branching out even further I opened my own agency called Skye Management. Over the next 15 years as an agent I represented models, actors and photographers.
I am now a mentor, coach, and manager for models, and I guide new models through the ups and downs of their careers as well as show seasoned models how to expand their client base. I educate, empower, and protect my models as we build their careers and extend their reach to new heights and opportunities.
As an industry leader, I cast models for fashion shows and have produced several fashion shows for designers in and around the Toronto area through my production company MMC Productions. I have sat on the judging panel for numerous model and designer competitions and I am a public speaker.
I wish I had a mentor when I was modeling, to help guide me, answer my questions, help me network, and navigate the waters of this industry. Now, I’m lucky to be able to offer this kind of help to a new generation of models.
Below is some of my work as a model.
