It is nothing new to hear about WNBA players signing deals with modeling agencies. It is, however, unique for a WNBA player to sign a deal with a modeling agency with an esports element.
Ford Models, which has offices in the international fashion hubs of New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Paris and Sao Paulo has an esports division. When Powers is not shining on the court with the Washington Mystics, she partakes in her gaming interests – including her own Twitch channel.
I’m so honored to partner with Ford Model Agency, one of the most notable agencies in the business. It’s always been a dream of mine to work in this space, and to be part of their talent in this new esports and gaming division brings me incredible joy! @FordModels pic.twitter.com/e1Py79BkQr
