Lily Cole at London Gatwick Fashion Week.

Die hard fashion fans out there might remember an infamous time in 1988 at JFK Airport in New York where model agency Storm Model Management spotted and signed a girl who turned out to be the greatest supermodel of all time; the infamous Kate Moss.

Well the model scouts have been at it again, this time a bit closer to home. Last week international model Lily Cole returned to Gatwick airport to show off the two newest recruits of the model world.

Tessa Maye and David Searle, both 21 years of age, beat of thousands of other model hopefuls to win the Gatwick Runway Models competition, and under the watchful eye of fellow model icon Lily Cole, the pair walked away as the new faces of Storm Model Management.

The pair were lucky enough to spend the day being coached in how to walk and pose by none other than catwalk queen Jade Parfitt. Model Jade has walked for designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Christian Dior and helped the models overcome their nerves to take the title.

Tessa and David not only get a modelling contract with storm, but also got the chance for their first paid event at the London Gatwick Fashion Week last week.
