Local girl Sophie Dalm has been awarded 1st Runner Up at this year’s Top Model UK event.

The National competition is the leading professional model search campaign and fashion event in the UK and the largest runway fashion show weekend outside London Fashion week, stretching out over a six month period, seeking out the very best undiscovered talent.

Sophie Dalm At Top Model UK National Grand Finals

Sophie, just 16 years old from Co. Down, was selected for the Grand Final UK at the Irish heat in Lurgan Castle as the youngest of the finalists selected to go forward.

This year’s finals took place at the Hilton Metropole in London and was the culmination of month’s of interviews and preparation.
Over 3000 applications were received – a record level of entries. Sophie is pictured competing in the commercial category runway event wearing local up and coming fashion designer Katie Wilson at Una Rodden Belfast.
