Renee Knorr is a woman who is living her destiny with passion, fulfilling life by giving back and soaring without limitations. Owner, Producer, Spokes Model, Mother, Golfer, Humanitarian; Luxury Brand Mogul. There’s no way you can say any of these words amongst Atlanta’s movers and shakers without mentioning her, the New Orleans born businesswoman, who after coming to the city over one decade ago, has taken it by storm, giving it a social face-lift by using style, grace, glamour and professionalism. She has influenced the Beauty & Fashion Industry and Professional Networking scene. One Woman, One Mission, One Goal!
Knorr’s experience as National Beauty & Fashion Director and National Director of Special Events, and Motivational Speaker has enabled her to successfully build a Business Alliance Group. She launched her own company in June 2012, My Beauti Network ‘The Global Luxury Marketing Connection, and has done over 25 successful events for her clients. The company strives to maximize the growth of businesses through global, luxury-marketing connections, focusing on Women-owned businesses.

A model, spokesperson, writer, humanitarian, businesswoman and now Editor and Chief of My Beauti Network, is where she’s continuing to EMPOWER businesses in beauty, fashion, health & wellness, sports and entertainment.
Knorr’s accomplishments have allowed her to embrace her passion in fashion, from Fashion Show Producer of several Fashion Shows including The Trumpet Awards “High Heels and Tee” Fashion Show, Producer of Let the Music Play for Haiti music concert, International Model with Ebony Fashion Fair, to working with various designers such as Emmanuel Ungaro, Tadashi, Givenchy, Oscar DeLaRenta, Bramer Leon Couture and others.
Knorr has been featured in Who’s Who In Black Atlanta 3 times in 2005, 2012 and, Jet & Ebony Publication, Season’s Magazine, Xtra Magazine, Sheen Magazine, as well as People You Need to Know Women’s Magazine, but her biggest accomplishment she says she is still working on!
Knorr is proud of her work in the community by working with organizations to help raise funds and build awareness such as: Easter Seals of North Georgia, Aids of Atlanta, Atlanta Children Shelter, The American Cancer Society, Shepherd Center Organization, You Can Make A Difference for Melanoma Skin Cancer, March of Dimes and Jeffrey Fashion Cares, to name a few.
Knorr has been a sought-after talent and was featured as a Celebrity Judge and Host in several competitions: 2011 Miss Georgia Latina, Rene Miller Atlanta’s Best 3.0 Jazz, 2011 ABMDC / PROJECT FASHION, Keynote Speaker of DreamMart International “Dreaming in Living Color” – A Golfer’s Dream, a panelist speaker of Spelman College, receiving a Business Superstar Award for her commitment in empowering women and a Celebrity Judge of Easter Seals ‘Uncorked Fashion’ — all of which have earned her the title of “Ms. Atlanta Fashion.” Knorr stays a major player because of her love and passion for beauty, fashion and educating women and young teens. Knorr believes in building solid win/win relationships — that’s what has helped her to continue her dreams. “It’s about being passionate in helping others and the love, respect, dedication, commitment, being a POWER player, and having FAITH in God that has allowed me to shine!” says, Knorr.
Knorr has definitely come a long way from the young girl in New Orleans who considered herself “the ugly duckling” of her family after losing 60 lbs was asked to enter a beauty pageant. She never had any experience as a professional model, nor as a beauty pageant contestant and never saw herself as a model. From there, she joined John Casablanca’s Modeling and Acting School. The little girl from New Orleans went off to Atlanta, Georgia, and from there, pursued her career in Chicago with The Johnson Publishing Company and became an international runway model, modeling in over 32 states including internationally. She went from a size 14/16 to a size 4. Doing this not only opened doors for her to travel and be featured on television and movies, but it also allowed her to work for major fashion and beauty companies, The Johnson Publishing Company, Halston, Revlon, Paul Mitchell, and Saks Fifth Avenue, to name a few.
When it comes to her own success, the secret lies in her 13-year-old daughter. “Every time I look into my daughter’s eyes, I see that I am building her a legacy that she will be proud of,” she says. “I’m creating a foundation for her that is built on love.” She is currently working on her own non-profit organization that will empower young girls.
Whether on the red carpet of an event, on location for a photo shoot, walking the catwalk on the runway, producing events, or speaking engagements, Knorr is dedicated to inspiring women and mentoring young ladies from all walks of life. Her everlasting love for fashion and now sustainability has made her a force to be reckoned with, from representing as a goodwill ambassador and spokesperson for fundraisers, gala dinners, and premieres for companies. Her heart is for organizations with a mission to help youth and women.
Knorr is sure to win the hearts of women and girls by exposing them to the business and lifestyle benefits. Now, with having My Beauti Network launched in October 2012, she continues to empower others and she gives Women a place where they can connect and be honored.
