Nay Reynolds - Lavish Vixenz is a Model Team based in Cincinnati Ohio. I created this team 8 years ago in hopes to help aspiring models break into the modeling business without the hassle most freelance models have to endure.  In the beginning of this journey, I could not find any models to join my team. For two years straight, I only had one consistent model. Nobody wanted to respect, support or work with the unknown underdog. After a rough, frustrating couple of years, I decided to rebrand myself, my business and create my own lane. 

The Lavish Vixenz Model Team is more then just pretty faces and photo shoots! I provide runway training, coaching, workshops, casting do's and dont's, professional/model etiquettes and I also help build confidence and self esteem. 

Being a model manager is a tough job but I thank God everyday for this opportunity.
