WHEN the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week begins in Hong Kong this year it will feature fashion’s top names and some of them will be using a young man from Worrigee to hang their clothes on.
Jade Foster will be representing Australia on the catwalks during what could well be the make or break moment of his modelling career.
“I’ve wanted to get into modelling for ages.
“I’m into fashion and my mum was always taking me to fashion shows and pageants when I was younger,” the 20-year-old said.
Mr Foster’s mother Rebecca said she couldn’t be more proud of her son.
“I’m proud and very excited for him,” she said.
“Ever since he was little he would love to come shopping with me; he wasn’t nagging me to go home like many children do. He was always interested in fashion.
“He’s a gorgeous kid and he knows how to model.
“I always knew he would do well, and that it was going to happen for him,” she said.
Mr Foster was signed with modelling agency EMPV and had been photographed for magazine covers and posters in Sydney clothing stores.
“It was really exciting to get my first cover,” Mr Foster said.
That agency was taken over by a different company and suddenly the requests from overseas came flooding in.
One of those requests will take Mr Foster to Hong Kong for fashion events later this year through to January next year.
“I feel a bit head over heels at the moment. They are really big on Caucasians in Asia,” he said.
