Debi Lou Modeling Academy is owned and operated by RGV native, Debi Chavez and is a product of Debi Lou Productions.

Since the early 90s Debi has been an official recruiter for the Miss Texas USA and Miss Texas Teen USA Pageants.  Debi has had the privilege of mentoring, tutoring, and promoting many girls who have gone on to win state and national titles. Her knowledge and keen-eye have made her a sought after pageant trainer and judge in the State of Texas.  As pageantry has evolved and has become more “fashion forward” with an emphasis on runway modeling, Debi’s expertise lent itself to a new and exciting endeavor.  In 2010, Debi expanded the Debi Lou brand by opening up Debi Lou Modeling Academy, the first of its kind in South Texas.

Mission Statement

Debi believes that everyone has potential and talent that can be nurtured and developed through confidence and positive reinforcement. Debi Lou Modeling Academy provides a real-world modeling experience; students will receive training and a level of professionalism unmatched in South Texas. Graduates will gain life long skills, ability and confidence that will carry them throughout their career and life.
