Indigenous modelling star Samantha Harris is heading to Perth next month to be a special guest at the Perth Fashion Festival.
Not only will she sit front row at a number of shows and walk for Perth swimwear brand SKYE & staghorn, Harris will also tweet her experiences of being in Perth exclusively for The West Australian.
"I love social media. I'm constantly inventing new ways to access my followers and provide them with interesting content," Harris said.
"I can't wait to extend my profile and share my experiences by tweeting for The West Australian."
The 23-year-old started her modelling career at 13 alongside international model Abbey Lee Kershaw in the 2004 Girlfriend Model Search.
The following year NSW-born and based Harris was flown to the US to appear in a beauty feature for US Glamour Magazine, and in 2005 she made her catwalk debut at Australian Fashion Week, walking in an incredible 18 designer shows.
Since then Harris has appeared on the cover of Australian Vogue, in editorial work for Italian designer Miu Miu, and in campaigns for Just Jeans, Seafolly, Becca Cosmetics and Forever New.
More recently Harris was chosen as the David Jones Ambassador for Young Women's Fashion, alongside former long-term ambassador Miranda Kerr.Harris supports many charities, including One Laptop per Child and the National Centre for Indigenous Excellence, and will be mentoring two indigenous models from WA's North West, who are also appearing in the SKYE & staghorn show on September 14.
