The reigning Miss Birmingham will be a special guest at Birmingham International Fashion Week this weekend, as she hands out an award to a budding young model.
Kris’ina Jagpal, who won the chance to represent her home city of Birmingham last year, will present a special prize for the The Face of Birmingham International Fashion Week 2013.
Birmingham International Fashion Week (BIFW) is teaming up with Inter Lens Model Management to help find people with the potential for a career in modelling, with the winner being named on Sunday afternoon and rewarded with a professional photoshoot and the offer of a contract with the agency.
Kris’ina Jagpal, who was crowned Miss Birmingham last March, certainly knows her stuff when it comes to style and is due to graduate from her fashion course at Birmingham City University this year. She has also graced magazine covers, starred in music videos and attended numerous glamorous events since winning the Miss Birmingham title.
She is also now helping to find her successor, with applications for Miss Birmingham 2013 now open. The search for Miss Birmingham is much more than an old-fashioned beauty pageant or modelling competition, judges will be looking for someone who can be an ambassador for the city and help to raise the profile of many worthy causes across the West Midlands throughout the year.
The competition is open to 17 to 24-year-olds who live, work or study in Birmingham or the surrounding area, but younger fashion fans can also get involved in the Junior Miss Birmingham contest, open to 13 to 16-year-olds. If you or anyone you know would like to enter, visit www.missbirmingham.co.uk before March 29.
