It was only a wish, a far cry, but now it is here.
With less than two months to the inaugural Malawi Fashion Week which will run from May 30 to June 3 2013, the first ever model boot camp takes place from Friday April 12 to Sunday April 28 at Anachulu Villa in Ntcheu.
According to Malawi Fashion Week (MFW) CEO Dawa Loga-Lemberger, the boot camp is poised to be an intense team-building exercise that will make the participating models all-round individuals.
“If you are a model worth your salt and are in Malawi, this could be your chance to learn many things that impact on your well-being, your character and grooming and how you can market yourself locally and internationally,” said Loga-Lemberger.
The fashion week promoter said registration for the boot camp is being done on www.malawifashionweek.net and is open to all models regardless of whether they did not make it through MFW auditions held last month.
“We are still confirming the number of models to attend, but the number of models that have registered for the MFW model Boot Camp is 10 as of today. More registrations are coming in including models that just want the experience,” she said in an interview on Thursday.
Loga-Lemberger said confirmed instructors for the boot camp include South African model trainer Neetasha Singh, former Miss Universe representative for Zambia Alice Musukwa, Priscilla Saidi, a marketing professional, Miss Malawi organiser Vitu Kamanga and former BBA representative Hazel Warren.
