The Face of Oxford Fashion Week is a unique and flexible look; vivacity, and someone who takes enjoyment and has conviction in modelling. An ambassador for Oxford Fashion Week 2011. The calibre of all candidates was high, the character displayed was impressive and the competition was fierce. Deciding on one candidate to be Face was exceptionally difficult and was taken after thorough consideration.
