Angus got his break as a model agent, scouting new talent and helping his protégés make it in the industry. Before long he was managing some of the biggest names in the game, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington amongst others. In 2001 he started a collaboration with photographer David Sims, who wanted Angus’s eye for new faces on board. Together they produced campaigns for Jil Sander and Balenciaga as well as editorials for Vogue and W magazine. The Brit casting director then crossed the pond, setting up his own company AM Casting in New York, working with a line-up of names like Louis Vuitton, Rick Owens and Hugo Boss . He is now ranked as one of the top five casting directors in the world and is famed for noticing girls like Anja Rubik before his peers. Anja became a runaway runway success as have many pthers of Angus' discoveries. For New York Fashion Week Angus makes the selects for Opening Ceremony, Peter Som and Helmut Lang and in europe for Rick Owens, KENZO, Ann Demeulemeester and erdem among others. His top tip for models is to have a sense of humour, because it gets everyone through fashion week, and to always be on time. Sound advice we reckon.
