VIVA ServiceAgentur GmbH was founded in 1991 and was one of the first agencies in Berlin to receive official accreditation from the Federal Employment Board for the booking of models. The Managing Director, Andrea Matthias, herself a former model with training as an advertising executive, started the company - taking advantage of her own experience in the industry. Within a few years VIVA has become one of the leading model agencies in Berlin’s fashion scene and also at the international level.
VIVA's first office was situated in Berlin’s Charlottenburg district, and since 2008 we are located in the heart of Berlin at Friedrichstrasse 210 at Checkpoint Charlie. As a mother agency, VIVA represents internationally acclaimed female and male models, as well as representing other international models in Germany in co-operation with their agencies. Their international roster includes Julien Sabaud, Lasse Pedersen, Lucien Thomkins, Luke Worrall, Anna Jagodzinska and Kinee Diouf.
The strength of VIVA’s success has resulted in the creation of VIVAstyle & Youngermodels, where stylists and hair/make-up artists, as well as kids and teens are being successfully represented and booked.
