Agyness Deyn leaves modelling to spend more time with her partner

The 26-year-old English model has announced her decision to leave her modelling career behind today, saying that she isn’t spending enough time with her boyfriend.

Agyness became a model after she was discovered shopping on the streets of London. She quickly excelled in the industry, featuring on the front cover of Vogue in the USA in May 2007 and being deemed as ‘the next big thing’ soon afterwards.

She recently moved from Primrose Hill in London to New York, where her career has gone from strength to strength, but the modelling sensation has now announced that she wishes to spend more time with rockstar boyfriend Miles Kane of The Rascals rather than pursuing modelling.

Damian O’Connor, Managing Director of Models Direct, believes that modelling can easily fit around personal commitments:

“Models Direct works with models from all walks of life and lots of different backgrounds. Many of them have families and loved ones they want to spend time with and support, and the majority even maintain a day job or other commitments while modelling occasionally.”
