Eleanor Carling, 16 from Newcastle and Morris Pendlebury, 17 from Skipton have won the East Coast Premier Model Search.
Staff from train company East Coast and Premier Model Management, stars of Channel 4’s the Model Agency, conducted an exhaustive search up and down the railway between London and Edinburgh. Eleanor and Morris have both won a 12 month contract with Premier Model who will represent them and help to establish their career in the fashion industry.
Both Eleanor and Morris will also receive a two-day trip to London, with First Class travel and £250 in prize money, and in addition, £250 worth of rail travel vouchers, courtesy of East Coast, to help with their travel expenses to London when they begin their modelling work.
Says Paul Williams, communications manager at East Coast, ‘We are really pleased that Premier has found some future fashion stars during the search along the East Coast route, and excited to see how their careers progress after their discovery. We’re really proud of the East Coast Premier Model Search and have enjoyed working with Carole and the team at Premier over the last five months.’
The search consisted of Premier scouts travelling on East Coast trains to various destinations along the route, and holding scouting events at stations along the route including Glasgow Central, Harrogate, Peterborough, Doncaster, Newcastle, Edinburgh, York and Leeds.
