AFTER being in the modelling industry for almost two decades, Port Elizabeth beauty, Shannon Hutton has recently started her own modelling agency, Unique Model Management.

The 22-year-old model started her modelling career when she was only three years old and has been committed to her passion ever since.

Although she describes herself as a shy person, she is extremely confident on stage and since modelling has helped boost her confidence, she wants to help others be more confident as well.

“Although I am from Malabar my classes will be held in Schauderville and West End. There is a lot of negativity in the northern areas and I just want to be a positive influence.”

Hutton is no stranger to beauty pageants in the Eastern Cape and has won various pageants in the province including Junior Miss Port Elizabeth in 2009, Teen Miss Port Elizabeth in 2011, Miss Eastern Cape in 2010 and was crowned Miss Port Elizabeth 2015.

She is currently a third-year Corporate Communications student at Varsity College and plans to use what she has learned to start an event planning company.

“In the future I hope to use what I have studied to start an event planning company doing everything from corporate events to weddings.”

Her classes are open to both males and females of all ages and no prior modelling experience is needed. Hutton not only focuses on photographic and runway modelling but also various skills such as deportment and interview etiquette.

“Since I’m still studying, I will only have classes on a Saturday from 12pm to 1pm in Schauderville and 2pm to 3pm in West End.”

“So far the response has been great; so many people are contacting me about modelling. I feel there was really a demand for a modelling agency in the area,” she said.
