Tabea Wins IMG Modeling Contract

The Model Scouts

Tabea Weyrauch, the schoolgirl from Derry
was last night crowned Ireland's next model
sensation as she walked away with the top
prize of an exclusive contract with IMG Models,
the world's biggest modeling agency, She also becomes the face of A|wear's Spring/Summer collection in 2011 and will be the cover star of
the first 2011 issue of the Sunday Independent's
Life magazine.

17-year-old Tabea was born in Germany, but has lived in Derry since the age of six, beating
Aishling O'Connell from Castleisland and Ellen Flanagan from Dublin in the final on Tuesday
night on RTÉ Two.

Tabea was shocked and thrilled to win 'I've been
given the opportunity of a lifetime. If I'm honest,
I didn't expect to win given all the other amazing
girls in the competition.'

She told how the experience of the show had changed her life - she has travelled to London, Paris, Sydney and New York and met some of the biggest names in the business. She says 'I've grown up a lot in a short period of time. It's hard for me to choose a favourite moment, as I value every step of the journey. I particularly loved being able to visit so many amazing cities and meeting so many important people within the fashion industry.'

But as ever Tabea has her eyes on the prize and all she wants to do, is finish school and start working in the fashion capitals of the world 'All I want to do now is get on with being a professional model. I love working with Jeni and David. They are so down to earth. They're more like supportive mentors than scary judges! They have taught me so much about the fashion industry and helped me develop myself into a model.'

Jeni, Vice-President of International Development at IMG Models, said 'We are extremely proud of our winner. She is poised to have a career that most girls could only dream about. Not only is Tabea spectacularly beautiful, she is also wise beyond her 17 years. During the often long and arduous filming schedule Tabea's professionalism and keen focus never wavered. Not once did she take her eye off of the target. Throughout the process many of the girls looked backward at what they felt they might miss out on at home if they were to become international models. It was solely Tabea who never looked from side to side nor backward but rather continually forward toward what she imagined this new life could be. David and I and all of IMG Models are thrilled to begin guiding and nurturing Tabea on this exciting journey she is set to embark on.'
