“I was just really shocked,” she said.  “I really wasn’t expecting it. I just went there to go to the show and watch it.”

She was invited to Malta fashion week at the end of May, and now she’s been signed by SuperNova modelling agency.

“I’ve been speaking to my model agency and they want me to go Paris and Italy,” she said. “It’s amazing.”

The 15-year-old went to Malta with her mum Joanne Gould. “We didn’t realise quite how big it [the show] was because it’s quite a small island,” she said.

Her mum is delighted, but not surprised Chloe’s been spotted. “She’s quite a tall girl for her age, she’s stuck out all her life for being tall.”

It’s been a steep learning curve for Chloe, but she’s managed to take it all in her stride.

“They told me what I need to do, what kind of poses, how to walk and what speed, because you have to do it at specific speed, you can’t go too fast.”

And the fashion lover was excited to meet some of the industry’s top designers. As well as Jean-Paul Benielli, she wore 22-year-old Tiffany Pisani, who won Britian’s Next Top Model in 2010.

“I’ve always watched lots of next top model,” said Chloe. “She was so nice, it was kind of weird watching her on TV and then meeting her in person.”

Chloe and her mum have now been forced to speak to her school about taking some of her work away with her, while her modelling agency have promised to try and arrange work during the holidays.

“I can’t believe it’s all happened and what I’ve done,” said Chloe. “It was definitely a shock.”
