and contributions to the industry over the past year.
The finalists across nine categories were nominated by Style Circle, a group of WA fashion industry members who nominate and judge each category, drawing on their experiences within their own fields to decide on the most successful designers, models, boutiques, bloggers and creatives.
Runway model of the year finalists are Ayor Makur Chuot and Kimberley Wynhorst (Scene Models), Chloe Wheatcroft and Sarah Tilleke (Vivien's), Grady Wulff and Hannah Collard (Chadwicks).
Vivien’s manager Christine Fox said finalist Chloe Wheatcroft, who has modelled in Australia, Milan, New Zealand and at New York Fashion Week 2014, had a strong edge that the international modelling world loved.
“She's not your average girl next door and has a little more rock and roll going on, with sophistication to boot,” Fox said.
“While Sarah Tilleke is one of Perth’s most in-demand models, she's a classic beauty with a body to envy.”
Winners will be announced at the WAFA on Monday, March 30 at the Heath Ledger Theatre, State Theatre Centre.
Stay tuned for more finalists in upcoming editions of WesternSuburbsWeekly.
