About us


Almeda Models is founded by the Almeda family in 2017. Lauriane Almeda got the idea to start an own modeling agency after being a professional international model for a few years. She noticed a missing peace in the modeling world, the lack of black, Asian and plus size models.

Almeda Models stands for diversity on the catwalk and in the world. Our mission is to change the fashion industry and make it accessible for every women out there, no matter what shape or size.

Our dream is to change the fashion industry and we hope that within 5 years plus size models will be a part of the fashion industry as we know it. Today Almeda Models is a fast growing family company run by siblings Lauriane, Zanita, and Rodney Almeda.

“Diversity is the key of success”
