Biography

In my time I have modelled for many fashion designers both catwalk and print. I have , appeared on TV and have had photos I have taken and  and articles I have written published numerous times ( via fashion magazines Evolve, Slink , Fireworks magazine, Jon Rob Publications and other music magazines) .

//Modelling//

I initially modelled when I was in my teens under my maiden name
Jane Almond just for a few local plus sized shops wanting to promote
their clothes.

I also was entered for a modelling competition a number and came second
in my age range for a competition with Womens Own and Marshall Ward where I won£500.00 to spend in the catalogue and also got introduced to PHA extras Agency in Manchester and ended up being a TV extra in things like Coronation Street, Emmerdale, Shameless, Holly Oaks, DFS ads and many more.

In March 2011 I was asked to model for an Evans University Focus
Group focusing on size perception and the retailer themselves ( ie how
things could be improved) which was very interesting.

That sort of led to me entering the Face of Rossendale competition 2011
and I was amazed to find myself one of the ten finalists.

I also did the catwalk for Evans and Butterfly at Liverpool Fashion Week.
