Teenager on runway to fashion career

WITH her sights firmly set on the fashion runway lights of Melbourne or Sydney, this Yamba teenager is leaps and bounds ahead of her peers.

At only 17, Stacey Harvey has already completed certificate one and two in retail through Tursa while working full-time at Yamba Surf Centre.

For the past two months she's also been working at Yamba's newest boutique, Podium which Stacey says she loves.

“All the designer clothes are fantastic and I get to wear heels,” she said.

Dabbling in a bit of modelling on the side, Stacey made it to the semi-finals of the Model for Life competition held in Newcastle in 2005 and won a contract with the North Coast modelling and acting agency, Gilchrist Casting.

However it's behind the camera she really wants to be, with the intention of getting work back stage at the fashion shows where she can hone her organisation skills and immerse herself in the clothes she loves so much.

But for the moment, Yamba is where her friends are and she's content with a holiday to Fiji that's coming up.
