‘Mr and Miss Mall’ crowning this weekend

2017-09-06 06:00

MODELS will compete for the title of Mr and Miss Greater Edendale Mall on Saturday, September 2. Twelve female and 12 male models in the senior category and 12 female models in the teens category will take part at the Greater Edendale Mall in the food court. The event starts at 10am.

The pageant organisers, who partnered with Edendale Mall, Thandokuhle Dlamini and Lucky Mthembu, said a fashion show exhibiting traditional wear because September is Heritage Month, will precede the pageant, which starts at 11am.

Models who did not pass the pre-judging stage will take to the catwalk in this segment.

“We want to showcase local talent both in modelling and fashion design. There are a lot of fashion designers in Pietermaritzburg, but they go unnoticed, which is why we thought this would be a great platform for them,” Mthembu said.

The four designers whose items will be on display are at the Pietermaritzburg Fashion Shop at Edendale Mall.

The fashion show will end at 11am with the pageant for the teens taking place thereafter.

This competition will finish at 1pm with the main event then getting under way.

Mr and Miss Greater Edendale Mall will each win R5 000 and will be mall ambassadors.

The organisers said for the past four weeks participants have taken part in workshops that taught them hair styling, putting on make-up correctly, modelling, grooming and etiquette.

The judges are Miss Curvaceous SA, Slindile Ntethe, first princess of Miss Lux SA, 2012, Aphelele­ Dladla and Mr DUT 2016, Nkululeko Mbatha.

The masters of ceremonies are Umgungundlovu Community Radio presenter Ayanda Sibisi and Miss DUT, 2015, Fundiswa Khoza.

Entertainment includes performances by poets­, musicians and dancers.
