An Interview With Dale Noelle And Kathy Ireland
“In a world where social media sharing is at an all time high it’s imperative that companies have no doubt over the integrity of the models that represent their brands. This is one of the reasons why TRUE Model Management focuses on inspiring the fashion industry with model citizens.” – Kathy Ireland
In this exclusive interview between Kathy Ireland and Dale Noelle, we get an inside look at how TRUE Model Management operates behind the scenes and what it means to be a TRUE model in the ever-evolving fashion industry.
Compared to how the industry worked in the 90s, Dale Noelle states how today, it’s “much more inclusive and very diverse.” “Nowadays with technology and social media, [the industry] has really brought the models to life and given them a voice,” and this voice is one that Dale Noelle values greatly.
Janel Koloski, a model with TRUE, talks a bit about her search for a management company and being attracted to TRUE’s boutique atmosphere. Janel loves TRUE because of “the concern and care they give to each model,” and mentions that “[she gets] all the individual attention [she needs] to have a successful modeling career.”
What also makes TRUE Model Management unique is their TRUE Cares division. Through TRUE Cares, clients who book TRUE models learn about charities that those models support. TRUE then matches a percentage of the model’s revenue and donates it to the charity that model supports.
Addressing the dynamic industry that the fashion world has evolved into, Dale Noelle discusses the efforts they’ve taken to advance and support it. Through their representation of models of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities, as well as the exploration of various technological advances, TRUE has grown into one of the top 3 fit modeling agencies in the world. Because of this, TRUE has become a vehicle to empower others to fulfill their dreams.
“In this day and age with social media there is transparency,” stated Kathy Ireland, “and so what [TRUE] brings to the clients is saving them time because [they] have screened [their] models so well and [they] are bringing [their clients] someone who will elevate their business.”
As an agency who puts their models first and has created an inclusive community for models of all shapes, sizes, and ethnicities, TRUE Model Management has successfully had a positive impact on both their models and their clients.
“TRUE Model Management is creating a positive change in the fashion industry and the world.” – Kathy Ireland
