*Tyra Banks is back with her first modeling agency IMG, but this time the deal includes her company Bankable Enterprises.
Under the terms, Tyra will participate in commercial endorsements and other fashion related opportunities, according to WENN.
“The last time I was with IMG, I was set on taking on the modeling world in the high fashion and commercial sectors. Now I’m dreaming even bigger but this time for my company as well,” says Banks. “Aligning myself with brands that I believe in, and helping them achieve the kind of success they’re looking for, helps all of us as we grow our businesses.”
IMG’s Chairman and CEO Ted Forstmann added: “Tyra is a global brand and we are happy to welcome her back to the IMG family.”
Banks, the host and executive producer of TV’s “America’s Next Top Model,” is due to release her first novel, “Modelland,” which she promises will be “inspired by some of the models I’ve known – both nice and ‘ice.’ “
