International modelling agency Chic Management headed for Newcastle to find next top model

It is set to be the chance aspiring models dream of.

Talent scouts from international modelling agency Chic Management will be in Newcastle this Saturday in a bid to find the Hunter's next supermodel.

The agency has teamed up with Facon magazine for the event to be held at The Rooftop at Westfield Kotara on July 6 from 10am to 2pm.

Budding models are encouraged to attend the scouting event and enter the "Australis Face of Facon" model search. The morning will be a fun learning experience for girls interested in modelling and a chance to ask the experts questions about the industry.

Facon editor, Lara Lupish believes this is a great opportunity for girls and is excited to bring a national agency to the region.

"Usually girls will have to make the effort to drive to Sydney to speak to agencies and that can be a daunting experience. Next weekend Sydney is coming to Newcastle, not the other way around," she said.

"While sending pictures to an agency is great, meeting the directors of Chic face-to-face offers girls a much better opportunity to show their personality as well as their unique look.

"In today's day and age, it is not enough to just be a pretty face. Agencies are more and more looking for girls that offer something a bit different. This is a golden opportunity for the young women of Newcastle."

The competition remains open until August 31. The winner will be announced at a runway show at Westfield Kotara on October 12 and will receive a development contract with Chic Management and a fashion editorial shoot in Facon magazine.
