From Paradise To Paris With Local Model Gizelle

Gizelle Lee, a beautiful young Whitsunday resident is about to head to Paris Fashion Week, having been selected by a Sunshine Coast Based modelling agency to represent their brand.

Gizelle is just 16 years old, and, for over a year, she has been pursuing a career in modelling.

Following her first modelling experience with Belle Le Chic, Gizelle was selected to be their signature model at the widely known fashion week.

Belle Le Chic also included a picture from the shoot on a billboard in Times Square, New York, and Gizelle has truly hit the ground running.

Modelling comes naturally for Gizelle who has been praised for her work in front of the camera.

Travelling to Paris Fashion Week, however, is a self-funded experience and Gizelle needs to raise money for herself and her mother as she is underage and cannot travel alone.

Determined to raise as much funds as possible Gizelle has been working at Little Vegas Burger & Bar to save for the travel costs.

To help her in her endeavours, Little Vegas Burger & Bar owner, Tristan, is preparing an in-house fundraiser whereby a portion of every special Gizelle burger sold will be donated towards her trip to Paris.

In addition, Gizelle has already organised car washes at her family business BASE 51, sausage sizzles and an event, all in hopes to raise enough for her to feature in the fashion week, which would be a huge scouting opportunity for her.

Gizelle is also in the development stages of creating a juice stand at the Airlie Beach Markets.

Called Coco Hut, Gizelle will be selling tropical drinks to thirsty customers.

In addition to all of Gizelle’s hard work, a GoFundMe has been started to further help with funds if needed.
