Introducing Persofolio™: A New Social Media Platform Set to Revolutionize the Modeling Industry

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 12, 2014) -  It's no secret that social media and advancements in technology are rapidly changing the way we work, shop, socialize and live our lives. Yet while all industries, including fashion, are quickly adapting to these new behaviors, one sector of the fashion world has been unchanged in the way it conducts business for decades -- the $10 billion+ modeling industry.

Enter Persofolio -- an innovative new platform and app launching in the summer of 2014 that is set to transform the way the modeling industry operates. Just Snap. Send. Connect.

While today's leading software only allows model agents to distribute portfolios and manage client schedules, Persofolio offers a series of advanced analytic tools that leverages a sleek social media interface to bridge the communication gap between models, agents and brands. Persofolio Members can pair high-quality, portfolio ready snapshots with the most up-to-date performance data and send to key decision makers anywhere in the world. It also serves as a digital networking platform and scouting tool that facilitates business communication in real time and across any device.

Persofolio also allows clients to interact, give feedback to agents and even book models directly with minimal agency interaction through the app. Brands will be able to use powerful search engine tools to get the best selection of portfolios from across various agencies -- all with just one search.

"Social media has been the elephant in the room within the modeling world for years," says Persofolio founder, Dino Fulgencio, who helped build some of the most popular modeling industry software platforms used today. "There is so much potential for models and agencies to utilize new avenues of communication to expand their presence, and that is exactly what we have set out to do. Our goal is to provide one coherent platform on which models, agents and brands can interact, allowing for transparency within the industry, which currently does not exist."

Fulgencio has gathered some of the best technology and fashion talent in the industry to create the Persofolio team. Their knowledgeable, real-world experience is preparing the new platform for success.

The initial launch will start with Persofolio's scouting app in the summer of 2014 to select modeling agencies and aspiring models. The platform's full capabilities will be introduced over the course of 2014 and 2015.

Persofolio is the premiere career development tool that will change the game for models, agents, photographers, fashion designers and stylists. With Persofolio, the modeling industry will be well equipped to keep up with the digital demands of its 21st century clientele.
