A WEST Dorset teenager has been catapulted into a high-flying modelling career working with the top names in British fashion.

At just 19, Lottie Richman, has been unveiled as the ‘Face Of’ the educational campaign for Clothes Show Live 2012, the UK’s largest fashion and beauty event.

As winner of the annual competition, Lottie, who was spotted at the show last December by a model scout from one of the UK’s leading modelling agencies, Select Model Management, has won a 12-month contract with the agency.

She will also front the Clothes Show Live educational campaign 2012, Bright Young Things.

A former student at Beaminster School, Lottie has just finished a foundation course in Brighton and is now modelling full-time.

Clothes Show Live has a long history of producing hugely successful modelling talent, with faces such as Erin O’Connor, Nina Porter and Erin Fee all being spotted at the show.

The key message of the ‘Face Of’ 2012 campaign is Bright Young Things with the shoot styled and photographed by Clothes Show Live 2011 Creative Award winners.

Lottie said: “It’s been such an amazing experience. When I found out that I’d won it was an incredible feeling, I rang my mum straightaway!

“I’d always wanted to go to Clothes Show Live and my friends bought me a ticket for Christmas.

“I didn’t know that there would be model scouts there, so it was a real surprise.

“Select have asked me to go full time with them in November, so now I’ve finished college I’m hoping to become a full-time model.

“I’ve done some amazing things recently including shoots for the Vivienne Westwood look book, high street brand Urban Outfitters and appearing in a video for The Vacc-ines. I can’t wait to see what’s next!”

Louise Grant of Clothes Show Live said: “It was an honour to work with incredible young talent.”
