I’m back with another feature of one of premiere partners, and some great friends at Mode Models! Each year Mode Models contributes to our Ribbon Rouge Gala with an amazing assortment of local designers and amazing models and this year is no different. We are so proud to welcome them back again this year and to include such dedicated and supportive partners and friends in our show. Mode Models is truly an amazing organization with an international presence that is also a local agency here in the city!
Ribbon Rouge: Who are you? Tell us a little bit about yourself and your history/ what you think is important about who you are?
Mode Models: Mode Models is an international modeling agency that discovers, promotes and represents talent at the highest levels of the industry. Mode’s men and women have modeled fashions for virtually every top designer on the planet and through mode’s extensive network of relationships with other agencies, models are “placed” with companies like Women, IMG, Elite, and DNA in foreign markets. Thriving local markets in Alberta keep models busy when they return home. Some models, like Tricia Helfer, Jason Thompson and Kate Nauta, have turned their modeling success into acting careers and now star in major motion pictures and television shows. Mode Models offers more than just a service or product; it symbolizes opportunity. With tremendous clout and vast experience the agency stands as a door – an access point through which the best clients encounter the greatest talents.
