>> Here's a rumor on a rumor: Victoria Beckham is said to be working through another deal with Simon Fuller — this time to set up a modeling agency in New York. Fuller already backs her Victoria Beckham collection and, as of August owns a majority stake in Storm modeling agency in London — which represents the likes of Kate Moss and Jourdan Dunn.
Word went around a couple of weeks ago that Fuller was shopping the New York modeling agency market for "opportunities." As for Beckham's supposed involvement, her spokesman didn't deny the news, only "play[ed] down the plans," according to the Daily Mail — but it sounds now like Fuller may be setting up a new agency as New York counterpart to Storm. A source told the Daily Mail:
"Simon knows that Victoria is very savvy when it comes to fashion. Simon’s first foray into fashion was to team up Roland Mouret and Victoria, which was a huge success. Victoria is a key asset to Simon and he wants her to take on a major role."
