Sixteen year old Emily Legge from Pindimar has been making a splash in the fashion world, recently hitting to the runway for Fashion Aid 2015 in Melbourne, and the Heart of Gold Foundation in Sydney Olympic Park.
This natural beauty who grew up in the local area is definitely going places.
Emily is fast becoming the face of the Myall Coast, modelling for local fashion designer Tahlia Moffitt and Mungo Road Surf Shop in Hawks Nest (where Emily works part-time).
Many other companies have also offered Emily a chance to showcase their designs in 2016.
Talking to Emily it’s clear she is very passionate about modelling.
After expressing an interest her parents, Stephen and Sandra, contacted a renowned modelling agency in Sydney where Emily attended modelling classes for 12 months.
In September 2015 Emily was selected to take part in Melbourne’s Fashion Aid ‘Le Cirque Nocturne’, presented by Henry Roth at Crown Palladium Melbourne.
Wearing designs by Suzan Mutesi, Emily shone on the runway wearing Glamourous earth mother inspired creations, the event raising much needed funds for the ‘Leukaemia Foundation’.
Emily a very community spirited young woman, indicated that the experience of being on the runway in such a highly publicised event such as Fashion Aid helped her modelling career as it was the cause that really inspired her to take part.
Emily said, “This event raised money to help so many families who are touched by childhood leukaemia, I just had to be a part of that.”
“I really do feel blessed to have been a part of such a worthy cause,” she said.
Emily has grown up on the Myall Coast, the beautiful backdrop of the area predominately featuring in her impressive model portfolio.
Emily said she loves living in this amazing community minded area.
“I look forward to supporting local community events in the coming future,” she said.
Emily’s great sense of morals, and supportive family are major contributors in the amazing future ahead of this dedicated young woman.
