“We don’t recruit models in our team just because of their pictures alone but we look at their unique traits,potential attributes & any previous experience or promising”…C.F.M Management
Taking a picture and posting it on social media,resulting in having many followers.
That only doesn’t qualify one,to be a model.
Brushing up the coal dust into a clean diamond through training,mentoring and educating aspiring individuals about modelling is a few of the main aims of the new modelling agency in the country.
Which has been founded in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe.
The agency seeks to manage & mentor models into the industry, particularly in the commerical,runway and print (& some paegentry)modeling sector. It may be new but
already, it has signed some of the most popular names in the country.
Shadel Noble – ( Mr Zimbabwe 18 & Mr Bulawayo)
Ashley Guwu – ( Miss Crystal Angel International & several Peagants’ Queen)
Ruby Tayte – ( International High Fashion & Runway model)
Xaviero Twins ( Mr Twins Zimbabwe 19)
Just to name a few!
The agency’s name is ‘City’s Favourite Models’ mainly deriving from Bulawayo & born from the recently popular C.F.M.M.M.S.T which stands for City’s Favourite Models, Mentors, Management, & Scouting Team which is a whole movement aiming to break the fashion & talent industry by “elevating stars into superstars” ! .
On another scale the agency which will be the mother agency and home, to all the models & talent they sign,it sees to protect models & talent from being taken advantage of by the fashion & entertainment world such as designers, photographers, brands and industry related clients that wish to work with the models .
Currently only Zimbabwean models are registered under the banner but in the near future,the agency hopes to have international models in their team.
To register as a member of the agency one can email their portfolio and modelling experience or (if seeking grooming to be a model) send your desires and details to: @firstname.lastname@example.org or send a direct message to them on their instagram @cfmmmst.For some,if you are lucky, you just may get scouted by one of their team members & become one of their amazing professional models that way! .
