Kate Moss has parted ways with Storm Models, as confirmed by Vogue UK on Friday morning. The agency launched Moss's flourishing modeling career when she was just 14 years old. A spokesperson provided the British publication the following statement: "After a successful 28 year relationship, Kate is moving her business in house, and we will continue to maintain an active involvement in our on-going deals for her."

Founder Sarah Doukas discovered Moss at the John F. Kennedy Airport in New York City in 1988. Since Doukas and Moss, who was traveling back to London with her father, were on the same plane together, Doukas approached the young teen about joining her then-newly launched agency. The following day, Moss and her mother showed up to the Storm HQ and the rest was history.

And don't worry, Moss is still modeling. Instead, she'll manage these gigs herself while Storm Models will provide its ad-hoc services as needed. (Plus, it probably frees up some resources so that the agency can focus on little sister Lottie's budding modeling career.) Until then, we'll be waiting for Moss's next campaignmusic video appearance or, better yet, interior design project.

We reached out to Storm Models for comment and did not receive a response by press time.
