Supermodel: Empowering Zimbabwe’s next generation of models

A new platform has been established in Zimbabwe that aims to empower models across the country. Known as Supermodel, this initiative is set to revolutionize the modeling sector by nurturing the new generation of talent.

Described by some as the dazzling world of modeling and fashion, where lights and cameras capture beauty from every angle, Supermodel is more than just a platform for runway dreams. It is a movement committed to reshaping the industry’s future.

“Supermodel believes in breaking stereotypes and challenging norms. With a profound commitment to empowering models, our mission goes beyond the glitz and glamour. We’re dedicated to raising awareness about the exploitation that can plague the industry, educating models about their rights, and fostering a safe and inclusive space for everyone to thrive.”

The first auditions are set to kick off in the city of Kings and Queens, Bulawayo, on the 6th of July. Other provinces will also have the opportunity to participate, including Midlands, Manicaland, Matabeleland South, Masvingo, with the final auditions taking place in Harare.

The audition process will include various activities such as Catwalk, Face challenges, and other screening events spread over the next few months.

It will highlight and showcase the depth of talent that Zimbabwe has to offer in various forms such as film, skill training programs, fashion design, makeup artistry, photography, and promoting the Wear Zimbabwe campaign, which encourages supporting local fashion.

All activities and program designs will equip the 20 finalists with the skills to sustain their livelihoods, offering business training and opportunities to succeed in the Business of Fashion.
