Emily Ball, 21, from Chipping Sodbury, is used to sorting clothing donations and creating window displays at her job in our Yate shop. But now Emily will be modelling clothes herself as she takes part in the leading model search competition Top Model UK.
Having already competed against hundreds of girls for a place in the final, Emily will be judged in the Commercial category against 27 other models from across the country, at a glittering finale taking place at the Hilton Metropole, London on 13 March.
Emily said “it’s definitely going to be a bit of a change from my day job at the St Peter’s Hospice shop!”
Emily continued: “I love working at the Hospice shop as I’ve been really lucky to get some experience doing the visual merchandising, which I love. The managers have recognised my passion for styling and fashion and I’ve really enjoyed creating the window displays and putting outfits together. In a charity shop you can find some real hidden gems.”
