Two aspiring models could become the next iconic faces of fashion after winning a competition created by intu Chapelfield and Sandra Reynolds Agency.

Rob Emblem, age 23 from Norwich and Evie Oliver, age 17 from Drayton were named Faces of the Fash Pack on Friday, March 17 as the Fashion Excess show drew Norwich Fashion Week to a close for 2017.

Rob, who has no previous modelling experience, entered the competition at intu Chapelfield's Faces of the Fash Pack LIVE event back in January, taking to the pop up catwalk to try his skills.

Evie had previously tried some modelling work as a child, but decided that this competition was the perfect way to kick off her career as an adult.

Their prize includes a contract and training with Sandra Reynolds, professional head shots and an editorial model shoot in the next edition of intu Chapelfield's fashion magazine.

These new faces walked shoulder to shoulder with our experienced professional models and helped us to put on a thrilling week of fashion shows.'
