Lorenzo Martone, Ryan Brown Shuttering Arc NY

The business partners are closing their talent agency in order to pursue separate endeavors.

MODEL DIVORCE: Lorenzo Martone and business partner Ryan Brown are shuttering their talent agency, Arc NY, in order to pursue separate endeavors. The duo founded Arc NY in 2009 and signed up a slew of top models as clients, including Alessandra Ambrosio, Irina Shayk, Jeisa Chiminazzo, Nicole Trunfio, Julie Henderson, Julie Ordon and Heide Lindgren. The split is amicable, said Martone, and both partners plan on continuing to represent fashion talent while pursuing additional projects. Martone is a co-founder of the Nycked Swimwear line and consults for Melissa shoes.
