The British fashion world unveiled five supermodels of the future yesterday to help fly the flag for the industry.

The public was treated to a rare glimpse of the girls - including three 14-year-olds - as they took time off from school. Wrapped in Union Jacks, the fledgling pack was helping to promote next week's 1997 Lloyds Bank Fashion Awards.

Chloe Webb, Charlotte Flyvholme and Rachel Kirby, all 14, appeared undaunted by the publicity. They have all shot to the top of the industry after being discovered last year.

Rachel's mother, Gaye Kirby, from north London, insisted her daughter still had her "feet on the ground" despite shooting to international success. "She is doing her GCSEs next year, this is just fun for her, it is acting."
