Keep an eye on Abbe

Keep an eye out for Abbe Sweetman, 14, from Sapphire Beach. Our local girl has been selected as a finalist in the search for the face of Moda Management. Next year she will compete against five other young beauties for the title and she stands to win a model contract for two years and the opportunity to work with Sydney's leading fashion players. Abbe never imagined she would be a finalist in the competition and she said she can't wait to take part in the next stage. In addition to the model contract next year's model winner receives $5000 worth of Style Academy professional modelling training, a photographic shoot with one of Australia's leading fashion photographers, $1000 worth of fashion wear, and $2000 worth of cosmetic products. Moda CEO, Nielson Taione, said Abbe had a fresh look and a good chance of becoming the face of the year. Abbe will feature in the February issue of Dolly Magazine which goes on sale later this month.
