LOCAL 15 year old resident, Zoe Sicali has been announced as a finalist for Miss Fashion Week Australia 2018.
Miss Fashion Week is an international model contest and is a global organisation owned by Vera Yinghua Wang and partnered with Kylie Drew in Australia, which promotes positive self image, self love and self confidence.
This year there are 101 girls competing over two days in three categories, junior, teen and adult. Finalists were selected from regional rounds in each state around Australia, and Zoe jumped at the chance to return after she was invited back from last year’s event where she finished third runner up in the Teen Petite section.
Zoe said, “I loved the experience so much. Not only did I have a great time, I also made some new friends and learnt so much about myself and really enjoyed the catwalk experience and all the competition had to offer.”
The day starts with a modelling workshop and rehearsals for the evening awards. The girls are interviewed individually by a judge where they are asked a set of questions and a photo shoot follows.
Judging is based on workshop participation and their photo shoot, black wear, activewear and formal wear on the runway. At the event the top five girls will be announced in each category and the overall winner in each of those categories will be crowned as Miss Fashion Week Australia, Miss Teen Fashion Week Australia and Miss Junior Fashion Week Australia who will all win a trip to the USA to attend the International Final in Dallas, Texas on December 1.
Other awards on the night will be Miss Photographic, Miss Media, Miss Congeniality, overall winner of activewear and overall winner of formal wear.
The junior event will be held on Saturday, September 22 with the adult and teen event on Sunday 23 at 5:30pm at the Best Western Airport and Convention Centre in Attwood, Victoria.
