Scene and Heard

Edge Agency's Kyle Schactel
Modelresource spent Thanksgiving weekend in Regina, where Edge Agency hosted its second annual Discovered model search.

Of all the modelling-related events I attend across Canada, this one is the classiest not only in its presentation, but also for its philanthropy.

Discovered starts with a field of 50+ contestants from across the province, and narrows down the numbers over the course of eight weeks.

Eight finalists - along with more established models from Edge's roster - staged a fashion show for 400 attendees Saturday night.

Through ticket sales, silent auction and live auction the event raised more than $27,000 for the Saskatchewan Chapter of Children's Wish, eclipsing the $25,000 raised in Discovered's first year.

18-year-old Kyle Schachtel was named the winner of this year's search.

A 6'0" tall mechanic from Raymore (about an hour north of the Queen City), Schactel is a former hockey player who made his first ever walk down a runway Saturday night.

Last year's winner, Thomas Perras, spent a large part of his first year working in Korea and Shanghai, and left this morning for a two-month contract in Athens.
