Size4 modelling agency will come together with the recently formed Glam Fairy modelling house for the first time ever in hosting a brand new pageant, Miss Summer Harare, at the Rainbow Towers VIP Lounge tonight.
The pageant is aimed at offering Harare models an alternative pageant to the Miss Harare and other Harare-based beauty contests.
“Twenty fresh, new models will take to the ramp in exclusive summer outfits sponsored by Ruff Cuts, a local fashion brand now based in South Africa,” said Size4 agent Wilbert Rukato.
Rukato said the stage entry routines for the models would include ethnic, culture and fantasywear, and a summer dress fashion show was also on the cards.
He said the contestants had been scouted from all over the city by Size4 and among them were the current winners of Miss Chitungwiza 2011 and Miss Airmen.
“Last week, the models had their catwalk lessons at the Jubilee Centre and were later treated to a braai hosted by Milton Car Sales. For years we have witnessed national pageants with contestants failing to exhibit proper ramp walk and catwalk techniques, not so with Miss Summer Harare,” said Rukato.
He said he was confident the models would showcase catwalk skills that were on par with international standards.
Rukato said the winners would walk away with cash prizes which would be handed to them tonight, including trips and hampers.
“We drew the judges from the modelling, fashion and beauty industries as befits a pageant of this magnitude,” he said.
He said to entertain the audience, award-winning Desmond “Stunner” Chidemhe would perform together with other upcoming artistes like Digga Squad and Freeman, the Joina City hitmaker , among others.
Rukato said another pageant, Miss Size4, was scheduled to be held for 2012.
