The world of fashion is always changing, but Calgary-based modelling agency Mode Models has managed to stay the course through 30 years. Having famously discovered supermodel-turned-actress Tricia Helfer and top models Kim Renneberg and Heather Marks, Mode and its founder Kelly Streit have made their mark in the industry over the past three decades. In addition to Renneberg and Marks, Mode represents current sensation Meghan Collison, who was named 2017 Model of the Year by the Canadian Arts and Fashion Awards along with an impressive group of up-and-coming talent. The three Mode models featured on these pages – Gabriella, Shayna and Kayley – are all rising stars destined to continue this fashion legacy over the coming decades.
