CELEBRATION OF LIFE: Georgia Von Noble a Fashion Icon
By Sentinel News Service
Published August 1, 2019

September 10, 1932 – June 11, 2019

Georgia Von Noble never discarded her “ impossible dreams” of becoming a fashion model. During her time, historically there were few (if any) “Negro” models in haute couture, but Georgia persisted and went on to experience a long-term career as a fashion model.

Her achievements were groundbreaking. Her ability to display clothes and merchandise in shows, magazines, newspaper ads, on film, etc. was exceptional.

Her talent took her to the major fashion houses and center throughout the world (Dior, Yves saint Laurent, Givency, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Pierre Cardin , Willie Smith, Bill Blass, Ben Kahn Furs, to name a few.) She modeled and worked in the fashion industry until she was 75 years old. Georgia was featured in many magazine articles over the years: Essence, Self, Ebony, etc. and she appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show as a “timeless beauty”.


A tribute to Georgia Von Noble and acknowledgement of her impact on the fashion industry was given at the Flair “All White” Jazz Brunch (Ebony Fashion Alum). Certificates were presented to her son Lamont Evans from Congresswoman Karen Bass and Councilman Curren Price.
