Wodonga’s Isabelle Little, 12, has taken out the Victorian state title of Miss Fashion Week Australia Junior.
Just before turning 12, Isabelle decided to take on the world of modelling in the hopes of making new friends.
Ahead of the state competition, she was confident.
“When I saw the stage and the other contestants I was both scared and excited,” she said.
“I was shaking the whole time I was waiting for my turn. Then I went out on the runway and it was fun.”
Isabelle and her mother, Cellina, had a nervous wait as the winner wasn’t announced until the next day.
“When I saw my name I was happy and excited,” she said.
“It was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to do it all over again.”
The national event runs on September 22 and 23.
