The Face of fashion competition, first held at Eastgate in 2004, is a unique mix of a talent and model search. It seeks an individual that is comfortable with herself, communicative, can model but also cast for various opportunities within the entertainment industry whether as actress, presenter or MC.
The competition allows any girl to enter (that suits the age, height requirements), even if she has no modelling experience and through the show, gain valuable experience at the hands of well-known choreographers. If the winner is over 18, she will be entered into the Miss SA competition.
FOF also teaches entrants poise, attitude and communication skills. Through the competition, the girls perform alongside celebrity MCs or musicians.
They are learnt interview skills, and discipline on the ramp as well as being part of a choreographed show.
