Three aspiring models were treated to a photoshoot to find out which of them will be the face of Newcastle Fashion Week.
Vikki Bell, Lauren Marshall and Bethan Sproat beat 50 others to vie for the spot and all will walk down the catwalk when the festival starts on March 11.
events manager at organisers NE1, said: “This is the very first time we’ve done it so it’s a very exciting opportunity for whoever we pick as the winner.
“We were looking for someone who’s really going to stand out from the crowd, who’s got a very striking face, someone who we can hopefully discover and they will go on to bigger and better things.
“We’d love to find the next Cara or the next Jourdan someone who’s going to make it big, and we can say that it all started here.”
The girls had their full make up done and posed in clothes designed by Northumbria University students for a competition run by boot brand Dr Martens.
Bethan, 18, hopes to go to university in London next year, while Lauren, 20, is an aspiring actuary who jokes that her sudden entry into modelling has been “trial and error”.
Bethan said: “When I came to the casting I was really intimidated because everyone just looked fantastic. Obviously I did something right. Here they offer you lunch you never get that in London!”
