Karrigan Edwards, the 2022 Toddler Miss Etowah County and 2023 Wee Miss Gadsden, will be walking the runway in New York City for New York Fashion Week.
New York Fashion Week is held each year in February and September in Manhattan. International fashion collections are shown to buyers, the press and the general public.
The four-year-old will be modeling for Marc Defang, who specializes in pageantry footwear and accessories.
Edwards, who has been in beauty pageants since she was four months old, has been on the cover of New To Two, a child modeling publication, as well as had a two page spread in Kids Model Magazine.
She also recently crowned her successor as Miss Coosa River.
Edwards is the youngest of four children. Her older sister, Mackenzie, is dance line captain for the Glencoe High School marching band. Her two older brothers, Caleb and Abel, play quads and saxophone in the band as well.
Edwards is the daughter of Brianna and Andrew Edwards.
According to her mother Brianna, Edwards “loves having her hair and makeup done” and she also loves her LOL Dolls.
When Edwards is not walking the runways or the local pageant stages, or playing with her dolls, she is at tap dance, ballet or baton lessons.
