A PROJECT which captured the imagination of young women across Weston has come to a close and unveiled a winner.

The Weston’s Top Model champion has been crowned and will now become the face of several of the town’s businesses for the next year.

Antonia Newton beat off competition from five other finalists and claimed more than 7,500 votes to secure top spot at the live finale at the Winter Gardens in front of a capacity crowd.

The 21-year-old is a hairdresser and lives in the town with her daughter Ilithyia. She said: “I found the experience a lot of fun. I’m so glad I was a part of it. I met some wonderful people and have made some friends for life.”

The non-profit event was designed to promote small businesses, either to take part in the show as guest judges or provide photo shoot locations or props. This year more than 60 Weston businesses got involved in some part of the scheme.

Organisers from XOXO, Weston Hair Studio and Rosie’s Mobile Hair and Beauty Spa were overwhelmed as more than 300 women applied.
