Another awardee Adrian Foster, who was voted as the best young designer was presented with his portfolio also.

Also present at the informal ceremony was Christopher Nathan Chief Executive at Coco-Velvet International Fashion Model Management.

Speaking to Tobago News Diana revealed that it was a great and rewarding experience for her.

"I look forward for more opportunities like this to come my way, in addition I would use this as a stepping stone to gain more success in my lifetime," she declared.

Diana urged young girls who looked at modelling as a career stressed the importance of an educational background as they pursue their career objectives.
