PHILLIPA Steele's experience with Trump Model Agency will help develop and nurture her raw talent, Fiji Fashion Week managing director Ellen Whippy-Knight said.

Ms Steele, a product of the FJFW, left for New York last month to join Trump Model Agency.

In her public Facebook page, Ms Steele constantly updates her fans on the latest developments of her journey as a Trump model, including photo shoots where she wears designer garments such as Marc Jacobs and Chanel.

In one of her recent posts, she posted pictures of herself in New York celebrating her 18th birthday with the Trump Agency family and her relatives.

"She's just a natural with a lot of raw talent. She is in good hands with Trump who will nurture and develop this," said Ms Whippy-Knight.
