Gemstones IMTA


For the first time ever the Gemstones IMTA event will be held in Africa this year. South Africa, Botswana and Namibia will be the first African nations to host the event in which hundreds of young models, presenters and actors will attempt to impress international talent scouts from all corners of the globe. The main prize is a ticket to Hollywood for a once in a lifetime opportunity - working alongside some of the world's most famous celebrities, but with so many talents couts present, everyone could walk away a winner.

The first of the IMTA events will take place in April 2012. South Africa should stand a better chance of hosting the event first because of its more mature modelling industry.
In order for the participants to make IMTA, they have to secure themselves a spot in the Top110. One way of doin this is by obtainin the most number of votes on the online voting booth

Botswana Fashion Week 2011

The recently ended Botswana Fashion Week was without a doubt an unforgettable event, but not necessarily for the right reasons; certain aspects of the show had been overlooked and left everybody involved in a panic. Despite all the bad publicity the show received, the models still maintain that overall, the show was a success, and I agree.   

Day 1 - September 16th
Venue - Three Chiefs Monument

 All garments showcased on this day were by local designers... WOW!
 Day 2 - September 17th
Venue - Cresta Lodge
This collection was my personal favourite, and I was lucky enough to be one of the models chosen to represent the talented duo on the ramp. The models, in their Pirates of the Caribbean inspired designs, took to the stage with pride and confidence in the brand's art.


Looking at the photographs, I can't help but forget about all the negativity surrounding the event. I really am proud to have been a part of it, and even more so because this was my debut as a runway model... On an international stage.
