From that moment destiny called and Canberra’s Belinda Riding was on her way to becoming a highly successful international model. Today it was officially announced that Belinda is the Face of Fashfest 2014. It’s a role that she says enables her to give back to the industry that has provided an exciting career in high-fashion hotspots like New York, Paris, Milan, Tokyo and Sydney.

The face of Fashfest for 2014 was then a Canberra Girls Grammar student, and the Australian Fashion Awards was looking for models for its show at the Canberra Theatre. ''[The choreographer] saw me at a deportment course that I was doing and picked me out of a line-up of girls and said 'I want you to wear the winning garment','' she recalled. Fast-forward 27 years, after a distinguished career on the catwalks of New York, Paris, Milan and Tokyo, Riding has moved back to Canberra with her family and is keen to promote Canberra's next generation of fashion stars.

They came from all corners of Canberra, and even from Sydney, to walk down the makeshift catwalk one step at a time, showing their style and keeping their fingers crossed they will be one of the 40 models selected for Fashfest 2014. It was the biggest model call held for a single fashion event in the nation’s capital and held for the biggest fashion event ever to be held in the nation’s capital.

As part of making that happen, the all important search is on for the models who will be walking the runways in this year’s new collections. A huge turn out of 140+ models gathered at East Hotel (a major event partner) for FASHFEST’s Model Casting yesterday, making it the biggest model casting ever held in Canberra.|
