Model of the Year Faith Laureles embraces life on top

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (LRFW) - It has been one year since she was named the Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week 2014 Model of the Year, and model Faith Laureles is still in shock.

“I still can't believe it,” she said about winning the recognition.

Since receiving the Model of the Year award in Baton Rouge, Laureles was also named the Little Rock Fashion Week 2014 Model of the Year last summer and has embarked on a modeling career that continues to surprise her.

With an interest in the fashion industry, Laureles participated in the casting call in 2014 when her mother, Amy Laureles, was looking for a different experience for her daughter. Once announced as the Model of the Year, Laureles was able to advance her modeling career with a contract with talent agency, Oneofakind Talent Inc. The high school sophomore has strolled runways for LRFW, New Orleans Fashion Week, has been featured in photo shoots and has become the face of the second annual OBRFW and seventh annual LRFW.
