i made very good money!!

I stayed in the apartments and worked with ikon and was booked the first month with a high end designer and made very good money. Over 8,000 for 4 days work. I will definitely be back after I get out of school.

we truly enjoyed the experience

I took my daughter to ikon for 2 summers in a row we are coming back this summer. I can say we truly enjoyed the experience. Sure there were bumps in the road getting started in a new city but all in all-good for my daughter.

I DON'T GET THESE BAD REVIEWS?

I work freelance with ikon and they are fine. I am older so I wouldn't say to sign an exclusive if you are older and already have many established clients in different cities but I do get work that pays well in advertising and I do get paid.

Why wouldnt you like ikon?!?!

I was very pleased with the security and location of the building. The doormen would not even let us in with proper ID and we had our own keys. They were a bit extreme. But the rules made us feel safe.

I'VE HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE

I have worked in this business for a long time with a lot of different agencies. I can tell you first hand that ikon has very good intensions and I personally have made a lot of money with ikon through the years booking huge advertising campaigns. It would be nice if more people reported their success stories.

I am getting paid on time!

I am getting paid on time now I wrote one of the comments a while back and I have to say now that ikon is doing the right thing and paying models faster again I respect this. Even if it does take time to be paid it is reassuring that I will get paid in time. I was also with one of those agencies that closed and I will never see that money so I respect that Ikon is trying to do the right thing in these hard times with the way the economy is.- sorry for the former comment. Thank You!

I love Ikon

I stayed in ikons apartment twice, once it was a little crowded but now it's changed. Beautiful apartments in an awesome building, now it is less crowded and most importantly we are all working so I love it. That's all us models really want to do is work in this business.

DO NOT SIGN WITH IKON

I agree with the majority of these posts that Ikon is a scam. This is by far the WORST agency I have ever been with. I probably know of a dozen girls that they still owe money to. They lure girls to NY saying that they are going to make tons of money/be a famous model/etc. and then after you leave they don't pay you what the owe you. I actually did pretty well with them and made a decent amount of money (only saw half of it). The jobs never paid great compared to any of the other agencies that I have been with. I also know of a few girls that they somehow talked into going to NY to ""lose weight"" and some of these girls had strange relationships with Aristeo thinking that it might get them work. The model apartments are terrible. At one point we had 11 people sharing one shower. We were not told that we were going to be living with Aristeo until we got to NY, and we literally found a little Asian mad living in a CLOSET close to Aristeo's room. So strange... And I know for a FACT Cynthia did some showroom modeling and that was it. She never really was a model. Don't let her fool you. There are tons of great agencies in NY. Don't settle for this one.

Run as quickly as you can in the other direction

I was with Ikon and was told I'd be living with 2 girls and I arrived to find bunkbeds everywhere and six people sleeping in a one bedroom apartment paying each over 1000 a month. Downtown Manhattan is NOT that expensive as far as rent goes, so they were making a profit. Whenever we'd go on any castings (which I was later told by former bookers had the sole purpose of shutting models up), the client would request a certain type of girl with either a thin build or muscular, blonde hair or dark, etc., etc to which my whole apartment went on the same castings (we looked nothing alike). Even if we did manage to land a job, we called the clients after the 90 day waiting period for payment had passed only to find out on more than a few occasions that Ikon had taken our earnings, feigning not to know what happened to the money. We dealt with hassles of filling out late payment forms repeatedly, leaving messages for the accountant who doesn't exist..any suggestion I could offer?? You are better off checking out legitimate agencies who don't scam their models or give them the runaround. Many of us work jobs outside of modeling and would have to track down the status of our earnings. Completely unprofessional and unnecessary. Run far away toward agencies in NY that may actually help you, not hurt your career.
