Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Fashion Week Fever

Emersen Lamb said winning Miss Junior Teen Diamond International last year changed her life.

The year 10 student’s pageantry success left her inspired and hungry to chase her dreams of becoming a model.

This hunger led her to being accepted for a full month-long tour with Sunshine Coast-based fashion label Belle Le Chic, taking her to Los Angeles, New York, Mykonos, Santorini, Venice, Milan, and Paris.

“I feel like this trip is going to help me take the next step in my career,” Emersen said.

“It means so much to me, it’s such an amazing opportunity to be able to go.

“It’s so crazy to think that I’ll be overseas in a couple of months chasing my dreams in the big city.”

While on the trip, Emersen and around 20 other models of varying ages will participate in photo shoots and runways at New York, Paris, and Milan Fashion Weeks, while concerts, tours and sightseeing will fill the rest of the month.

While Emersen is only in the early years of her modelling career, she hopes to come home from the trip more confident and experienced.

She aims to be an inspiration for young women.

“I just want young girls to know that they can do anything they put their minds to,” Emersen said.

“I used to be a really shy little girl, I never thought I could do anything like this, but once I joined Brooke Lee Modelling, my confidence has boosted so much, and it’s changed my life.

Locally, Emersen is also a RACQ CQ Rescue Talent Competition Finalist, happening in June, as well as a finalist in the Miss Photogenic Australia Competition in July.
