the Alternative Commercial Equal Agency
WELCOME TO ACE the Alternative Commercial Equal Agency. We are a new company,an agency that is open to representing ALL TALENT from ALL walks of life, trends and creatives.
From dealing with Models, Artists, Fashion, Designers, Musicians, Businesses, Sports, Photographers, Dancers, Tattoo Artists both Alternative and Commercially orientated we aim to inspire, stimulate, promote, advertise and help bring employment into ours and your life within various sectors of the community at home and abroad.
Currently we have an open house ethos where no contracts need to be signed. Freelance clients are welcome to come and go as they please and work with other agencies if they wish. We are for now exploring the landscapes of these industries to see if there is a demand and interest within them that likes our vision. Our vision proudly embraces any business, activity, model or artist that have a style or uniqueness that is not broadly accepted by the more commercial industries even though we do also embrace elements of mainstream commerciality .
For example these unique individuals can be non tattooed and moderate to heavily tattooed models Like THE FACE of ACE Heather McLean a stunning body builder with an extremely rare muscle wasting disease. Heather was refused entry to competitions because of her tattoos. All ages young and mature like our YOUNG FACE of ACE Jessica O’Donegan 14 years old and our mature and widely known ACE FACE of GREY Denise O’Neill who is trailblazing her way all over Northern Ireland pioneering the Grey Haired Revolution. All sizes and heights like the beautiful PETITE FACE of ACE Torii Wilson and equally beautiful PLUS SIZE FACE of ACE Miss Manda Panda. The multi talented ALTERNATIVE FACE of ACE Sarah Vogel, SPORTS FACE of ACE Dublin’s Thaikwando Olympian Hero Chloe Aboud. We even have managed to get our very own Godfather FACE of ACE Pip the Gentleman Pipkins. We especially welcome those with disabilities like the amazingly inspirational ACE FACE of DIVERSITY Stacy Paris who lost both her legs to a flesh eating bug and will storm the catwalk of Belfast Alternative Fashion Week in November and December 2016 on a pair of super cool prosthetic legs. Stacy is awesome on every Level.
Our experience in the more commercial mainstream industries of fashion over the years has revealed to us that these kind of attributes are very frequently shunned and turned away as some people from within the commercial & mainstream industries see this to be detrimental to their businesses vision as it may omit a negative aesthetically pleasing impact to their target audience.
ACE Agency however on the other hand does not feel that way, we welcome it, we see opportunity for these kinds of people as they have qualities that shine brightly perhaps even brighter than most people within the realms of courage , inspiration , pioneering and forward thinking ways, trendsetting tendencies rich with creativity fueled by a perpetual,potently positive spirit. This is a beauty and strength that comes from within which is often commonly known to be displaced, shallow and skin deep in the Mainstream & Commercial fashion arenas. ACE does not discriminate between commercial or alternative, we like to work with both, you cant have night without day, yin without yang.
Why should anyone be turned away because they are not the standard stereo typical industrial standard requirement we have been so accustomed to ? Diversity and contrast is the lifeblood of the world and universe. It is often said it is our differences that can attract us to each other and that is why ACE agency wishes to embrace as much of the splendorous variations of beauty which passionately blooms on the inside as well as on the outside of our wonderful human hearts.
