The Hair Priory Student Model search is to announce the winners of its first student modelling competition at the end of January during a fashion event at the University of Plymouth featuring, among other things, an exclusive DJ set from Mike Fielding, star of
The Mighty Boosh.
The fashion show on 31 January will mark the end of the Hair Priory’s first student modelling competition in which students across the South-west were given the chance to participate in a contest designed to find models who would grace the catwalk in the real fashion industry. “We’ve gone to great lengths to create a credible competition that will find some serious modelling talent and we’ve had a fantastic response,” said Jo Barker from The Hair Priory.
Over 800 students entered the competition that was launched last September, and 24 finalists have now been chosen. “The competition has probably exceeded our expectations as we’ve found so many high-calibre models,” says Lauren Taverner Brown, editor of 247 magazine and a member of the model search team.
Finalist Charlotte Bone has enjoyed the competition so far, and was taking advantage of The Hair Priory’s free hair styling as the event drew closer. “I’ve had such a good time, and met so many great people through the competition,” she says. “It’s been very well organised, lots of fun and a great way to make new friends.”
The finalists will participate in a catwalk fashion show, and two contestants – one male and one female – will be announced as the winners. They will receive an array of outfits from high street store Cult Clothing, a year’s worth of free hair cuts at The Hair Priory salon, the chance to feature in a fashion shoot for lifestyle magazine 247, professional portfolio shots with fashion photographer Tom Hargreaves and the honour of becoming the new face of The Hair Priory.
Mike Fielding, perhaps better known as Naboo from The Mighty Boosh, will be playing a mix of indie and electro tunes during the celebrations at the University of Plymouth. Former Big Brother contestant and model Grace Adams-Short will be one of the judges, while professional burlesque dancers will also be in attendance!
“It should be a really good party,” says finalist Robin Kirby. “It’s very exciting to be in the final – I’m really looking forward to it!”
