After the controversy that surrounded Perth Fashion Festival last year, we are pleased to announce that local Perth beauty Chrystal Copland has been chosen as the official face of the 2013 Festival.
Last year PFF chose to feature Queensland up-and-comer Nicole Pollard as the official face, causing dismay among the WA fashion community.
Copland – who was discovered at the tender age of 14 – has been in New York for the past two years, and before that Sydney, after moving from her home town at the age of 17.
Currently the face of Anna Sui cosmetics, Copland has also been featured in a number of magazines with perhaps the most well known being Vogue where she has been photographed in seven editions, including three covers.
She has also graced the runway for the likes of Mulberry, Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Mary Katrantzou, L’Wren Scott, and not to mention opening for a Louis Vuitton show on her birthday.
With an established career already behind her, Copland can only rise higher in the modelling world.
Perth Fashion Festival runs from September 11-16.
