Layla David is a fashion enthusiast who hails from Mt. Druitt. She’s currently studying modelling, and her hobbies include reading, travelling, and exploring new places. She’s motivated by her goal to do well in the modelling industry and wants to keep growing and learning to improve. We caught up with Layla to ask her more about her journey in the industry, and here’s what happened.

How did you get into the modelling industry?

My older sisters are my inspiration. I saw them participating and joining pageants, so I wanted to follow in their footsteps. I started my first fashion show at 4, participating in different productions and fashion events. Since then, I got hooked and knew this was what I wanted.

What do you like most about pageantry/modelling?

I love to model different types of clothes. In my last modeling role, I modeled activewear, dresses, and casual clothes in one shoot. I had fun changing poses and looks to fit each type of clothing. I’m excited about this role because it would allow me to model various designs. In pageantry, what I love the most is the bond that I have with my co-candidates. I can also express and show what I am capable of. And most importantly, I gain friendships and wonderful experiences that I can treasure.

What has been the most memorable experience of being in the modelling/pageant industry so far?

One of the most memorable pageants I experienced was winning the Miss Little Earth Angel Fire 2021. I enjoyed and even found it inspirational to share my knowledge on saving food resources from being wasted by directly buying deformed fruits and vegetables from local farmers. For me, this is one way to show my advocacy as an environmental ambassador of goodwill.

What are your future plans? Inside modelling/pageantry or out of it.

I want to continue what I started. I will train harder and gain more knowledge so I can use it to improve. And become better at what I do. I want to constantly learn and grow until I become the best.
