Brent and Laura fought off competition from hundreds of other wannabe models to come out on top. On the audition day in April at DV8′s flagship Belfast store an estimated two hundred and fifty hopefuls queued down the street in the hope that they would be chosen as the Face of DV8.
Fourteen finalists were selected and the winning boy and girl took the coveted titles. The winners will represent the DV8 brand in all advertising online and in-store for twelve months. They will also sign a contract with leading model agency Alison Campbell Models, receive £500 worth of DV8 clothes vouchers and have their hair styled by award-winning salon Paul Stafford Hairdressing for the year.
Gail Villiers from DV8, one of the competitions judges said; “We were looking for a guy and a girl with real presence who would be fashion ambassadors for DV8 and people who could make the most of this great opportunity. We know what we have found that in our winners and we look forward to working with them over the coming year.”
Face of DV8 judges also included model agency boss and organiser of the Miss Northern Ireland pageant Alison Campbell, celebrity hair dresser Paul Stafford and one of Ireland’s best known photographers Khara Pringle.
The winners’ first assignment was a fashion shoot with Khara Pringle at her County Down studio. The pictures from the shoot will be used in all twenty-two DV8 stores across Northern Ireland and Scotland and on the retailer’s website at www.dv8fashion.com The shoot was styled by hairstylists from Paul Stafford Hairdressing and Irish make-up artist of the Year 2009, Rosemary Wright.
