Book News by Trident Media Group : Supermodel-turned-mogul Kathy Ireland is scheduled to release her highly-anticipated first novel, Fashion Jungle, co-written with #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken, on January 28, 2020. Fashion Jungle is published by award-winning Trident Media Group in New York City. A Valley of the Dolls meets Sex in the City, the new novel is an honest and exciting foray into the world of fashion.

Loosely based on Ireland's life in the industry, Fashion Jungle is an incredibly relevant novel that deals with four women who seem to have it all, but are barely hanging on by a thread. With strong romantic themes, this Women's Fiction deals with the #MeToo movement along with the very real human trafficking that takes place in the modeling industry. Layers are peeled back for the reader, revealing the danger, hurt, and competitiveness of the industry while showing the reader that as long as you stay true to yourself, you too can make it out alive.

"Fashion Jungle is a novel based on twists and turns that are true. It's the one story I never expected to tell. The fashion industry is a beautiful and simultaneously an ugly and dangerous place. I entered the jungle at the age of 16 and made wonderful friends and more than a few enemies. Fashion illusion can be responsible for great tragedy. Girls who starve themselves, recreational drug and alcohol use that becomes addictive, sex trafficking, statutory rape and most people are shocked to learn how many models lose their lives or simply disappear," says Ms. Ireland, who entered the modeling world as a teen and quickly took the industry by storm, gracing the covers of top fashion magazines worldwide, including Vogue, Teen, Cosmopolitan and Mademoiselle and appearing in 13 consecutive Sports Illustrated issues, including three of its covers, one of which is confirmed by Sports Illustrated as the bestselling issue of all time. "Rachel Van Dyken is a brilliant writer. She took the journey through memories, romance and pain, kindness and cruelty and wove a cautionary tale for anyone who has ever looked at a beautiful fashion image. Begging the question, what happens before and after the click of the camera and the end of the runway? Children cannot give permission to have sex with adults. It's heartbreaking to know that in the world of fashion this is very common. Our hope is that this book will make people aware and therefore, avoid unnecessary risks," adds Kathy, who in 1993 founded kathy ireland® Worldwide (kiWW®), a global marketing and branding firm responsible for multi-billion dollars in annual retail sales and is listed as one of the most powerful brands in the world by License Global magazine. This unprecedented success lead to Kathy being featured on the cover of Forbes magazine twice (2012, 2016) and Kathy being named one of the most influential women in licensing by License Global Magazine as well as one of the 50 most influential women in fashion by Fairchild Publications.

"Working with Kathy was such a fun process," says #1 New York Times Bestselling author Rachel Van Dyken. "I truly feel like we were able to create a suspenseful, not to mention romantic story that will really resonate with readers of all ages. We were able to take facets of her life and weave them into a fictional tale that both of us are so extremely proud of. I can't wait for Fashion Jungle to release into the wild, I hope it impacts readers around the world, the way it impacted us while writing it," adds Van Dyken, who has written over eighty books, which sold over three million copies.
