Stephanie Duke Andrews is the Founder and Director of Halo Models & Talent Group. She is a former New York model and actress and was represented by Zoli, where she worked for clients such as Seventeen Magazine, Jockey Underwear and Jones New York. Stephanie began working in the industry when she was only 14 years old, then she moved to NYC when she was 16. Now, she is celebrating her 29th year in the fashion and entertainment business.
Prior to opening Halo in 2002, Stephanie was a fashion, print and TV agent and scout throughout the Southeast for Madison Agency. She also scouted for fashion agency Eye for Eye Milan, Italy. More recently, Stephanie is the producer of the Connect NYC, a low-cost, private audition experience, held in New York City three times a year. After seeing that the Savannah market is saturated with the “traveling” and “fly by night” model and talent searches with huge price tags, Stephanie used her NY agency contacts to create the Connect NYC event. The Connect NYC program is the Masters Degree or Graduate Program and is the only class at Halo that Stephanie teaches and it is by invitation only.

She has also been a key player in the continued success of Savannah Fashion Week, where she serves as a board member and casting director. www.savannahfashionweek.org.
Throughout the year, she acts as the booking agent for Halo and has worked on many national campaigns shot in Savannah and Atlanta.
Stephanie, 43, is the daughter of Savannah natives, Phil and Dusty Duke. She is a preacher’s daughter and knew there was a calling on her life at a very young age. Since opening Halo, Stephanie has had the opportunity to help hundreds of men, women and children with their self-esteem. In 2005, she was asked to speak at The Diocese of Fortaleza, Brazil. Through an interpreter, she was able to share her life story to six hundred Brazilian girls. Speaking at schools, churches and conferences year round, Stephanie continues to share her life story on being a model, falling short and finding the grace and peace to move on.
