The freshest face to join the north east fashion scene took to the catwalk at a shopping centre.

Manor Walks Shopping and Leisure’s annual Spring Fashion Fix event brought the catwalk to Cramlington to showcase the latest spring trends from a host of retailers during a day of shows.

Lucky competition winner Tori Milward, 26, from Cramlington, and employee at Seven Oaks Hungry Horse, beat tough competition to be crowned the champion of the centre’s model search competition.

As part of her prize, Tori was the star of the show on the Spring Fashion Fix catwalk as she joined the show’s professional models dressed in collections from the centre’s retailers including Next, Pal Joey, Bon Marche and Select.

The competition, which ran on Manor Walks’ Facebook page and named Tori and Chris Mason as its winners, encouraged aspiring models to strike their best pose and share their photograph to be in with the chance of strutting their stuff on the Spring Fashion Fix catwalk.

Tori said: “I never in my wildest dreams thought I’d ever get an opportunity like this. The great response I received from the crowd was so overwhelming.”
