Tokyo Model Agency
The acclaimed Tokyo-based artist Hikaru Cho body paints models from Acqua Models. The result is floating and multi-faced heads intergrated with technological interfaces. The first word that comes to mind is "Wow"
Happy Birthday Will!! There was a birthday party for Will at the Acqua Models and Wilhelmina Japan office today. The festivities were complete with cake, bow-tie and party hats! Yay!!
Reina, from Acqua Model Agency, is a regular on the youtube channel Deep in Japan which is one of the shows presented by Yummy Japan. Yummy Japan introduces and talks about delicious food such as Washoku, traditional Japanese food which has been registered on the Intangilble Cultural Heritage List. In this video she puts out a challenge for a drinking contest to everyone with the potatoe liquor Shochu. A big challenge that she seems to be up for. One more round please!
Acqua Models' Bob W appears in the HARE french style summer clothing catalog. He is looking stylish and cool and ready for summer.
Acqua Models' Edison appears as the somewhat clumsy university professor climbing the stairs as his handfull of documents slip from his hand and fly in the wind. This is comical and clever commercial and Edison does a great job at being naturally clumsy.

Acqua Models' Noemie, a French half-Japanese model, appeared in the Ichi Antiques edition of the Kinfolk Book in Book Magazine.
The photography and styling were done by the Cameraman Naoto Hayasaka and the Stylist Masahiro Hiramatsu, both of whom are currently managed by Wilhelmina Japan.
By coincidence, just as we were thinking to write up this article and picked up the magazine, we realized the cameraman, Naoto Hayasaka, who did the photography for this shoot was stopping by our office and talking on the phone with some clients in France.
