Duane Gazi


Duane Gazi has covered nearly every inch of the globe in his more than 20 years as a model scout. Botswana, Tokyo, Moscow and Rio de Janeiro are just a few of the far-reaching cities he has scoured in search of modeling's next superstar. As tastes change in the fickle modeling and fashion industry, a scout must adapt to these constantly changing trends. Gazi has enjoyed the challenge of keeping his finger on the modeling pulse and counts on his experience and expertise to guess what trend will next be in favor.
For over 10 years, Gazi has successfully navigated this role for the powerful New York boutique agency, Trump Models, owned by the iconic Donald J. Trump. No wallflower in the business world, Mr. Trump has established his agency as one of the most formidable agencies in the world, representing Vogue-favorites Anais Pouliot, Lisa Cant, Tatjana Patitz, Maggie Rizer and Hye Rim Park as well as industry legends, Carmen Dell'Orefice, Jerry Hall, Carol Alt, Cheryl Tiegs and Kim Alexis to name a few. Gazi's energy, enthusiasm and results place him among the top of the list of model scouts working in the modeling industry today and bodes well for the future stars of tomorrow.
