Meet Lauren Handler and Stacie Fitzgerald
With a passion for children, fashion, and the New York modeling industry we slowly developed a program that allows every girl to shine and try to achieve their dreams. We open as many doors as possible and create as many opportunities for every child we can to become involved in print modeling, runway modeling, acting and other performing arts projects. Lauren has produced hundreds of successful family oriented events for children over the past ten year through her work as an owner of the East Coast USA Pageant. Stacie has been involved in the New York modeling and acting industry for the past twenty years as a child stylist and “Model Mom”. Together we make a great team to bring to you quality, creditable and fun events for your girls to enjoy. Both of us have six children combined that are currently working and successful models and actors in New York. We have been fortunate enough to work with some of the most talented individuals in the industry. We have gained tremendous success and support with our company because we are straight forward and deliver what we promise. We work with agencies, managers, children’s fashion designers and stores all around the world.
East Coast Starz is not a modeling agency. Starz is a program created to help both parents and children become educated and involved in this industry. To discover and bring out their children’s inner star qualities so they can shine brighter on the outside. We build up the self-confidence in children and pave the way to their road to success. We believe the runway builds confidence! Every child will not be successful in the modeling and acting industry. However, that doesn’t mean that they can’t enjoy being a runway model or doing fun photo shoots at our events. Most importantly we provide a venue for all of these girls that have the same interests. We promote fashion, fun and friendships. The girls do not compete against each other. They win together as a team and support one another.
Let’s make some memories and get some gorgeous photos along the way! You’ve got to be in it to win it! That’s what we love most about this industry. You never know what opportunity is waiting around the corner. It’s time to put your fashionista on the runway at East Coast Starz!
