The much anticipated Grand Finale of Top Model South Africa (TMSA); the premier model search in the country , will be hosted on the 18th of February 2017 at Carnival City in the Big Top Arena.
TMSA is by far the most prestigious platform for new models to be discovered in South Africa. Apart from the opportunity to be spotted and signed by various top agencies locally and internationally, the winners (one male and one female) will also compete in London for the international title, Top Model Worldwide.
The latter immediately elevates Top Model South Africa to a global platform. The two winners will also be invited to London Fashion Week, a highlight on the international fashion scene.
Last year’s female winner, Anri Pretorius, went on to win Top Model Worldwide, which has subsequently catapulted this high fashion beauty into an international model. She has since signed with Boss Models in South Africa and Base Models in London, and has featured in many prestigious modelling gigs around the globe.
The latter includes walking in one of the most celebrated fashion events in the world, London Fashion Week. Last year’s male winner, Evan van Soest, has signed with Ice Models in South Africa, LST Models in the UK as well as Base Models in the UK.
One of Evan’s latest accolades includes a major editorial spread for Maxim Magazine. “This year’s Grand Finale promises to be the biggest and most glamorous one yet”, says Suzette Marais, CEO of Top Model South Africa. “Apart from being hosted in the spectacular Big Top Arena at Carnival City, the production will also be managed by Producer/Choreographer Willie Venter, and will showcase designs by fashion designers: Sun Goddess, Gerry Elsdon, Matte Nolim, Gerrit Pienaar, Michael Ferguson and Gina Maxine”.
The TMSA Grand Finale is set to be one of the most talked-about model events of 2017, filled with red carpet splendour, breath-taking fashion – attended by A-list celebrities and top media alike.
