Along with our billboard campaigns in Las Vegas, NV, Teddy Blaze has been featured on talk shows, as well in publications in Los Angeles and around the world. Here are a few of them...
Today we’d like to introduce you to Sir Jones.
Sir, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Teddy Blaze started in March 2020 during the start of the lockdown of the country due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.
I have been in the fashion and entertainment business since 1987, as I started Jones Model and Talent Management in New York City at the age of 17 years old. Over the years, I have acquired over 5,000+ bookings for models and talent in print, runway, e-commerce and film and TV. Notable bookings are Marie Claire, Tag Heuer, Chivas Regal, Levi’s and Avirex just to name a few. Along with bookings, I have acted as stylist and fashion coordinator during New York Fashion Week (NYFW), which inspired me to open a clothing line.
I expanded the company in 2012 by relocating to Los Angeles. Initially to Sherman Oaks and now I live in the Heart of Hollywood. This move open doors to the entertainment world more than what I had in New York...

1. How did you get into modeling?
“Modeling is something I always wanted to do when I was younger. I never pursued it out of fear of failure. In 2019 i got tired of living in fear. I started taking my own pictures on my phone and posting them online. Soon after through the power of social media I was able to network and connect with so many amazing photographers and brands that have helped develop to the model i am today.”
