The ModelManagement team and all Fresh Faces finalists arrived at the venue for 18:30 in time for hair styling, make-up and fittings which all had to be done before the show.

The competition kicked off at 21:30 and all models took the catwalk in front off a large audience – agencies, scouts and of course the judging panel. Firstly, all models wore a casual pair of jeans from Oxygene accompanied with ‘Fresh Faces’ tees before slipping into lingerie by Yamamay. Along with their make-up and outfits all models killed the catwalk before our Fresh Faces winners were announced!

All models did an amazing job and in our eyes they are all winners… however the judging panel announced Victoria from ISIS Model Management (Nigeria) and Marian from MRA Model Management (Romania) as our Fresh Faces World Finalist winners!
