Allison Hunter - Industry Networker
Name a role in the creative industry, and at one time or another, Allison Hunter has most likely filled it (or at least knows someone who can).
As high-powered businesswomen strode confidently into the 1980s wearing Armani, Chanel, and YSL suits, her fascination with art and commerce first began. Venturing from her native Staten Island as a high school exchange student, Allison traveled to Milan, where the Mondadori Publishing offices opened her eyes to the business of fashion. After studying in Atlanta and London and receiving her B.A. in Fashion Merchandising, work brought her back home to the showrooms of the Garment District, allowing her to build new relationships with buyers, designers, and fashion editors.
Connections soon presented Allison with the opportunity to work alongside legendary Vogue Accessories Editor Tina Bossidy with some of the most influential photographers, artists, and creative minds to date. She then led the U.S. office of The Katy Barker Agency, which launched the careers of Carter Smith, Terry Richardson, Nathaniel Goldberg, Christopher Griffith, Tom Murno, Emmanuelle Alt, Jane How, and Allan Kennedy to name a few. Always working as the right hand to right-brained business owners and artists for years, she has continued to expand her industry repertoire as Account Executive at Pier 59 Studios, U.S. Beauty Agent at Art Partner, and Managing Director of JN Productions.
As a student of fashion during one of the most creative times in the industry, an intern at Elite London during the rise of supermodels, and an agent to iconic artists, Allison understands timing. That’s why she knows that the technology of LENSPiRE has arrived at the perfect moment to transform the creative industry for the better
