FIJIAN beauty Phillipa Steele's dream job to join the Trump Model Management in New York City has been delayed.

This was confirmed by the supermodel's mother Coleen Steele, who said her daughter was supposed to start work in the second week of January.

"The company has been communicating with her.

"The delay is because of the current cold weather in New York," Mrs Steele said yesterday.

She said while no confirmed dates had been given, Trump Model Management had requested Miss Steele to constantly send them her pictures via email.

"She (Phillipa) has started school. I have told her to study while she waits for her confirmed dates to travel," Mrs Steele said.

She said the company's model scout Duane Gazi-White had confirmed that Miss Phillipa would start work as soon as the winter season finished.

Mrs Steele said she was happy to have her daughter with her so she could spend time with her.

It was earlier confirmed that Miss Steele's first job would be at the New York Fashion Week — one of the biggest fashion shows in the world.

Miss Steele, who hails from Sigatoka, sealed the deal with the modelling agency earlier last year when she signed a three-year contract to model for them.
