Fresh face for Frock­tails

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

CANNONVALE res­i­dent Erin Pearce is the Face of Frock­tails for 2013 and will fea­ture on the cat­walk at the pop­u­lar Whit­sun­day Reef Fes­ti­val event on Fri­day, Au­gust 16.

Com­pe­ti­tion judge and Tropix Pho­tog­ra­phy co-owner Deb­bie Savy said the 30-year-old mum was cho­sen as this year’s mod­el­ling com­pe­ti­tion win­ner for a va­ri­ety of rea­sons.

“We were look­ing for some­one with that com­mu­nity spirit and she re­ally has that, [plus] she’s very much the de­mo­graphic of the peo­ple that go to Frock­tails as well,” Ms Savy said.

“There are some peo­ple who don’t know how beau­ti­ful they are and she is one of them.”

When asked why she wanted to win the com­pe­ti­tion, Erin’s an­swer said it all.

“I think win­ning is not the im­por­tant thing here, but hav­ing fun and loving life in the Whit­sun­days and ex­press­ing that to other peo­ple through mod­el­ling is,” she said.

As a stu­dent, who also works part-time at Marino’s Deli in the Whit­sun­day Shop­ping Cen­tre, Erin said she was look­ing for­ward to mod­el­ling all the beau­ti­ful gowns from lo­cal fash­ion houses and “just be­ing a part of the event”.

This year’s Frock­tails event will also fea­ture a spe­cial guest ap­pear­ance by Aus­tralian en- ter­tainer Ti­mo­matic on the night. The Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent star will be min­gling with Frock­tails guests be­fore join­ing host Racheal Kl­itscher from Tourism Queens­land on stage to as­sist with pre­sent­ing.

Tick­ets to Frock­tails are avail­able on­line from Whit­sun­day Tick­ets from $65 per per­son, which in­cludes a wel­come drink, canapés and the very best of Whit­sun­day fash­ion on the run­way at Deja Vu Restau­rant in Air­lie Beach.
