Some Model Tycoons

Shivani Honwad is a lawyer helping imported fashion folk with green card issues, while Jessica Perez is using her new Tycoon App (iOS) (Android) to help freelancers keep up with the dollar bills, and Aine Campbell is helping models prepare for life Beyond The Runway.

This episode touches on a broad spectrum of issues affecting legal immigrants who work in fashion. We also discuss how Tycoon App is getting freelancers paid on time. Jessica and Aine talk about their experiences working with modeling agencies in relation to immigration, what models do when they stop modeling and have no other resume, and their advocation for the passage of the new Freelance Isn’t Free Act.
