Perth-born model Sarah Pauley is looking forward to coming home for the Perth Fashion Festival this month.

The striking 183cm redhead, who is based in Sydney and comes from the Wheatbelt town of Pingelly, has joined The West Australian's Perth Fashion Festival team.

Before taking to the catwalk for the VIP closing night, Giving Back is the New Black, Pauley's role will see her tweeting exclusively from the front row throughout the event, which runs from September 19-25.

Taking place in the Government House ballroom on September 25, Giving Back is the New Black, presented by The West Australian, will see 16 of WA's leading designers - including the only showings from Ellery, Wheels and Dollbaby and Ruth Tarvydas - come together for the highlight of this year's week-long celebration of local fashion.

"I am really excited about coming back to Perth as I have only spent a week there this year," Pauley, 18, said.

"It will be really great to catch up with all the models who will be in the shows and I can't wait to tweet so all the readers can follow all the front-row action."

Pauley moved to Sydney two months ago after signing with Chic Management, which handles some of the country's major modelling exports including Abbey Lee Kershaw, Jessica Gomes and Montana Cox.

Since signing with Chic, Pauley has landed roles in last month's high-profile David Jones and Myer spring-summer launches.

"It's nice being in demand and having agencies from all over the world ask about you," Pauley said.
