Bio

Amanda Dyer wears many hats – international high-fashion model, successful entrepreneur, networking queen, and loving mother – to name just a few. Her versatility, positive attitude, dedication and professionalism all shine through in her varied achievements.
Amanda’s diverse portfolio  ranges from editorial, runway, catalogue and presentations to television commercials and promotions. She has starred in music videos as well as guest roles for numerous movies in North America. Her commercial experience of over 15 years has included management posts in leading hotels and restaurants, apart from haute couture modelling assignments for iconic global designers.

An Early Start

The 6ft Canadian beauty started her modelling career at the age of 12. By the time she was 14, she was signed to Elite after winning a national modelling competition where she beat thousands of other entrants. At 15, Amanda was sent to Tokyo – soon to become her favourite fashion capital – where she worked with top designers like Issey Miyake, Comme des Garcons and Max Mara. While in Tokyo, she graced the covers of Japan’s elite fashion rags Figaro, Spur, Frau, Marie Claire, Elle and Vogue.

Globe-trotting

After Tokyo, Amanda spent several years working the world’s fashion capital circuit between Milan, Paris, New York and even Germany and Greece. She has worked with every designer on a young fashion model’s wish list and starred in multiple global campaigns, including those for leading beauty brand Shiseido, fashion label Esprit and Takashimaya.

The Entrepreneur in Her

In 2008, Amanda slipped into her latest role as entrepreneur, founding the modelling agency Scout International (Know today as Scout Models) in Singapore. Her experiences as a model coupled with her unrivalled insight into the client’s side of the business provide a unique competitive advantage.

Amanda is widely regarded as one of the leading social connectors among Singapore’s marketing, media and hospitality elites. Her dynamic presence and discriminating taste, combined with rich global experience in the fashion industry make her an asset to any endeavour.

In 2012, Amanda started The Living 360 magazine (www.theliving360.com), a lifestyle magazine that has grown in popularity and is regarded today as one of the leading content curation websites around. In early 2014, the site hit 1.2m unique visitors and today boasts a star-studded line up of contributors & writers.
