Four burgeoning local models have been dubbed "ones to watch" after they were selected to front an annual campaign that predicts the hottest new faces of the season.

Chadwick's Perth stunners Lisa Karaki, Olivia Mann, Paige Garvey and Topaz Berger appear in the first New Faces campaign for Claremont hair salon O'Dowd Christie after scouts forecast the teen models would make waves this year.

Launched this year, New Faces is designed to feature up-and- coming beauties before designers start booking models for campaigns and runway events such as Telstra Perth Fashion Festival.

Styled as a modern-day version of iconic 1990s Calvin Klein images, the current campaign features the four fresh-faced models kitted out in distressed denim.

Salon director Michael O'Dowd selected the girls along with co-director Claire O'Dowd and fashion events maven Jacqui Brown. He said it was a project they were looking forward to every year.

"So many strong models are originally from Perth, so it will be great for our team to watch these models develop their careers over time," he said.

But some of the teens are gaining momentum even before the spring/summer season kicks off, with Garvey recently walking in a *WA * Chanel show and scoring a three-month contract to work in Milan.

She also was a finalist in the 2012 Dolly Model Search.

For Berger on the other hand, New Faces may have been her first shoot but she already has at least two fan pages dedicated to her and a strong social media following.

Brown, who runs events company The Studio, said she expected to see big things from all four models.

"Chadwick's have these girls in development, however, some are further on into their training then others," she said.

"I'd presume a few of the girls will walk for shows at Perth Fashion Festival and feature in the look books and campaigns of WA designers, whereas others will probably continue with their training and be ready for their debut next year.

"I can definitely see at least one of the girls walking in Australian Fashion Week next year, they are very strong."

Ms O'Dowd added they were considering extending the search to cover male models.
