Mzika Wear founder Mwayi Namaona has joined Lush Events in their quest for models that will parade on the runway at the upcoming RVK Africa Fashion Week slated for 25-26 November at BICC in Lilongwe.
Namaona will be the guest judge at Blantyre model casting on 24th September at Victoria Hotel pool side.
“Mzika Wear is coming back on the runway and they will also showcase at the November fashion gala,” Lush Events manager Lorraine Mopiwa Kljajić disclosed in an exclusive interview on Saturday.
“We want to honour Mzika Wear as one of the legendary fashion brands in Malawi. They are the pioneers and we are bringing them back,” she added.
However, she bemoaned that they only managed to select a few models in Lilongwe because most did most fit the requirements.
“We are looking for 20 models. 25 models showed up in Lilongwe where only a few were selected. But we will see how Blantyre will turn out,” the Lush Events boss stated.
The requirements are: “Females: bust-waist-hip measurements of no more than 34-24-34 inches (86-61-86cms) and height of at least five feet eight inches (1.72m).
Males: 38-40 inch (97-102cm) chest, 30-32 inch (76-81cm) waist, and height of at least six feet (1.83m).”
The dress code is black pants and white tops.
There are no age restrictions or required experience for the model search but those under 18 must have parental/guardian permission to apply.
“We are encouraging those aspiring models that have never done modelling before to apply. This is an international event, who knows they might get scouted by an international modelling agency,” she appealed.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
