Evan Crothers
Evan CrothersArt Director
Evan Crothers is currently the Art Director for all on model fashion for Rue Gilt Groupe. Evan brings a unique set of skills and knowledge with over 15 years of experience in all facets of the business. Prior to Art Direction Evan worked in the entertainment industry beginning his career as a musical theatre/dance performer holding a BFA from The Boston Conservatory. In NYC Evan worked as a casting assistant for Telsey Casting. His work includes assisting on national commercials, Broadway shows and feature films such as “Across the Universe”, and “Rent”. He also assisted in casting for ABC shows “Ugly Betty” and “Brothers and Sisters.” Evan then moved on to working for a modeling agency as a booker, which led him to focus and grow his creative side as a Fashion Stylist. He has had the pleasure of working with brands such as VH1, TJMAXX, SPERRY, REEBOK, CONVERSE, LANDS END, ADDIDAS, MARSHALLS, RUE LA LA, MERRIL, KEDS AND SAUCONY to name a few. After a decade of working as a stylist Evan made the move to Art Direction.

“ From being a performer I know what it is to be the person wanting to book the audition or job. All the preparation, and all the feelings that you deal with in this difficult business. Working in casting I got to see this from the other side of the table. Auditioning people, working with clients on what they were looking for and finding the perfect people for the job.” He brings a wealth of experience in melding the world of creativity, style, art and business. His involvement in many facets of the industry allows him to truly understand and appreciate the importance of collaboration. His unique experience in dance and art direction allows Evan the ability to communicate and teach the foundations of strong modeling technique. Evan has had the pleasure of working with all types of models from beginners to international supermodels.

“Working with Evan is coming to set with the confidence that you are in good hands. Talented himself and multifaceted, he has a way of visually showing the model what he wants out of them. Fun is always a must on Evans set, but so is getting the shot, which he always gets.” – Gabrielle Yvonne (Maggie Inc)
