Her exotic beauty and tall stature have seen her become one of WA's most sought-after runway stars.
But it was only by chance that seasoned Perth model Evelyn Leckie stumbled into the fashion scene.
Signing to Scene Model Management five years ago, Leckie was first discovered when she was 17 after being asked to take part in a charity fashion show when one of its models pulled out at the last minute.
"Jacqui Brown was co-ordinating the show at the time," Leckie told AAA. "She worked as a booker at Scene three or four years ago.
"Then afterwards, she just gave me her card and told me to come into the agency. I went in the next day and they took some digital shots of me and ended up entering me into a show called Supermodel Me.
"So the next thing I know, I'm flying to Singapore to film this show. It all happened so fast."
Leckie was crowned the 2009 winner of the hit South-East Asia-broadcast reality TV series, which saw her secure a one-year modelling contract with Singapore-based agency Diva Models as well as several glossy magazine shoots.
Ultimately, it set the 22-year-old Eurasian beauty on to the path of international stardom.
Her reality TV profile quickly turned her into a top in-demand model for the South-East Asian market.
Regular work came streaming in for Leckie in Singapore and Hong Kong, with her extensive portfolio including walking in exclusive in-house showings for high-end designer brands Gucci, Valentino, Louis Vuitton and MaxMara.
"I do a lot of shows because I'm quite tall," she said. "I'm experienced more with runway than photographic work."
But, having recently finished her media degree at the University of WA and moved on to a postgraduate degree in law at Notre Dame, Leckie was conscious of making her modelling work around her studies.
"Every holiday I've had with uni, I've been flown out to different locations," she said. "The last one I did was in Sydney for four months, which was probably my most successful stint."
With next year set to become even busier for the brunette stunner, Leckie said she was still undecided whether or not she would take up a modelling stint in Milan at the end of the year.
"I'm just tossing up with what I want to do with my summer holidays because it's my last real summer before I have to start doing internships, so I need to choose wisely," she said.
Leckie said she would be "very sad" when the time came to give up modelling to pursue a full-time career in her field of studies."I've always wanted to put my education first, even though modelling has been so much fun," she said. "It's more of a hobby to me rather than a career."
