AN Eden teenager has been featuring on thecatwalks at leading fashion shows around the world.

Eighteen-year-old Matilda Lowther, who is the daughter of James and Vanessa Lowther, opened London Fashion Week last Monday, modelling designer brand Burberry’s Prorsum spring 2014collection at Hyde Park.

She has also modelled in New York and is now appearing at Milan Fashion Week. She intends to go on to Paris Fashion Week before she returns home to Penrith.

Matilda grew up at the Lowther Estate, attending Hunter Hall School until moving to Queen Margaret’s School, York, when she was 12. The 5ft 11in teenager was scouted by modelling agency Select at the Clothes Show Live in Birmingham when she was 16.

She previously modelled for companies including fashion retailer ASOS, although concentrated on her studies while at school.

Matilda, who is one of four children, finished her A-levels recently and is taking a year out before hoping to study psychology at the University of Edinburgh next year.
