We are so excited to have the gorgeous and charming #BICOASTALMGMT model, Katie Nolan, as our Model of the Month! Having Katie has been such a great addition to our fashion board, we only see bright things for her modeling career. See below to learn more about this beauty:
1. Where you are from?
I was born and raised in Virginia. Little known fact, the first Thanksgiving in North America was held in Virginia. But now I think of New York City as my home.
2. What you are into… studies, hobbies, special skills etc..?
While I study Accounting by night, my true talent is in making balloon animals. Before modeling I worked for the Parks and Recreation Department and would help run free activities for kids around NYC, which is where I got into the balloon artist trade. I’d love to make you a balloon animal, just let me know!
3. Favorite clients from the biz?
I’ve honestly been so lucky. Everyone I have worked for has been so gracious and personable. Rag and Bone is really wonderful as is KAUFMANFRANCO.
4. Dreams/goals any thing else of interest (any other dream clients?)?
I’d love to appear in Vogue, mostly just to show my parents! Aside from my current *very dreamy* clients, some of the dream designers I would love the opportunity to work for include DVF, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Vera Wang and Donna Karen! As I learn more about fashion, this list gets longer 🙂
5. Career highlights?
Paris with KAUFMANFRANCO this past fashion cycle was really exciting. Not only was it fun to be with the team in a different country, the clothes were gorgeous, and I got to see how a successful market week is made! I also ate tartare for the first time, that was really tasty.
6. How did you get into modeling or acting?
Great question! Malissa and Josh actually spotted me in my Parks and Rec uniform walking around the UES. I owe everything to them and the Bicoastal family.
