Model Search Scotland 2017 Judge: Jill Buchanan

Jill Buchanan

Born and brought up in Falkirk, Jill Buchanan has worked in local newspapers for her entire career. She joined The Falkirk Herald in 2000 and two years ago became editor. She also has editorial responsibility for six other Johnston Press titles across Central Scotland. This is the second year Jill has been involved in judging Model Search. She said: “It was a very successful inaugural event last year and it was great to see so many people of all ages getting involved. The Falkirk Herald has worked with the Howgate team on a number of community events and this was definitely one of the most memorable, particularly for the enthusiasm of all those involved.

Falkirk’s Top Model

One of Model Team’s most recent success stories is Rebecca Liddell from Falkirk who was scouted shopping. Rebecca walked into our office two years ago and started working immediately as a model. She has walked at Paris and London fashion week. Clients include Hamilton and Inches, boohoo, Nasty Gal and ASOS. Model Team have placed Rebecca with Elite Worldwide and we are very excited to see what she does next when she leaves school in summer.
