Angelika Schubert, Founder & President
An artistic chameleon and forward-thinking entrepreneur, Angelika Schubert approaches talent representation with the eye of an artist. Born in Austria, Angelika was inspired at a young age by the cultural riches of her native Vienna. After graduating from the renowned Hetzendorf fashion institute, she launched an international career as both a fashion designer and model. Her personal style and visual flair became well known in the worlds of design, art direction, choreography, magazine editing, photography and painting.
After a spontaneous move to Los Angeles in the late 1970s, she continued her success as a fashion designer and model in addition to finding a new creative outlet as a make-up artist and wardrobe stylist for prominent photographers, commercial directors, celebrities and models. Her deep understanding of all aspects of image creation and production prompted her to pioneer high-end talent representation in the fashion and beauty industry with the opening of the Celestine Agency in Los Angeles in 1985. Seattle and New York locations followed in 1993 and 1998, respectively, until all operations were combined in the Los Angeles headquarters in 2008.
Today, Angelika remains one of the most sought-after agents in the world for her unequaled experience and artistic simpatico. She understands artists' and clients' needs from the inside out due to her hands-on background. Her penchant for visual expression is ever-evolving.
