Allison Hamzehpour and Jessica Cunningham founded Ignite Models Inc in 2006 under the premise that an agency should be as committed to its models as it is to its clients. Ignite models are carefully selected based on their unique beauty and character, their strong work ethic, and their love of the art. In return, Ignite is committed to providing each model with respectful, honest representation, and unmatched individual attention. In the same way, Ignite is committed to forming and maintaining strong relationships with clients—big or small—engaging each with the same level of care and integrity. Lastly, Ignite seeks to situate itself as an integral element of Minneapolis’ burgeoning fashion scene, working with local designers and artists to create a point of view that is uniquely Minneapolis.
