Joy Kingsley-Ibeh, Founder
With over 20 years of experience in the fashion industry as a model and personal image consultant, opening a modeling agency was a natural transition for Joy Kingsley-Ibeh. From her birthplace in Nigeria, to a small flat in London, and ultimately to the United States, Joy’s love for fashion and design followed her across the globe. As a child idolizing the supermodels of the 80’s and 90’s, she yearned for a career in fashion. As an adult, Joy’s image has graced commercial advertisements, fashion publications, and TV/Digital Media commercials for Fortune 500 companies such as AT&T, Amtrak, Washington Life and I AM Modern magazine.
As a wardrobe stylist, her editorial work has been featured in British Vogue, Washington Life, and DC Modern Magazine. She has worked with top industry professionals such as journalist Soledad O’Brien, and national recording artists, Sons of Serendip. In addition, she has styled two of Washington’s professional basketball teams, the Wizards, and the Mystics.
Now she takes her years of experience into her latest venture, Kingsley Model + Talent Management, and has managed to establish itself as one of the premier Model and Talent agencies. Her talents have graced the pages of British Vogue, Washington Life, DC Modern Luxury, and various magazines from the DMV to NYC. And have been involved in nation-wide ad campaigns for Olympus, and Canon Camera, Ritz Carlton Hotels, Capital One Bank, Bank of America, Boody Australia, Grand Marnier, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, WaWa, We Work and Under Armor, to name a few.
