Irene Marie Models was the first international full service modeling and talent agency in Miami Beach, Florida. Driven by the Agency’s forte in developing new and undiscovered talent (such as Niki Taylor and Amber Smith) the Irene Marie Management Group established and later re-invigorated the modeling scene in Florida.

The agency closed in 2009.
