A new era has dawned for a youthful model from Qwaqwa after she scooped the 2018 Face of Free State Fashion Week title.

Lungile Mazibuko (25) had the coveted title bestowed on her on 24 September.

The competition is part of the annual Free State Fashion Week (FSFW), which this year was held at the Windmill Casino in Bloemfontein.

The FSFW initiative was held for a third time, which provides a platform to several top and novice designers from the province to showcase their latest design collections.

Mazibuko, as the 2018 Face of Free State Fashion Week, is the brand ambassador, and with this comes exciting privileges.

She will represent and promote the FSFW and the Candy Smith Foundation.

Mazibuko will also be doing public speaking to inspire young girls in the province and convey the message that it is possible to realise one’s dreams and embark on educational programmes.

The Qwaqwa-based model claimed the coveted title ahead of several other finalists.

She took over from Caitlyn Rockman, who held the 2017 title.

An elated Mazibuko said she looked forward to growing further as a model during her tenure as the Face of FSFW, while simultaneously helping to take the brand to greater heights.

“I still can’t believe it, but I look forward to growing and I would also like to grow the Free State Fashion Week brand to ensure that it is not forgotten and that it is continuously seen out there,” she said.

Mazibuko will be taking the brand to new heights through set initiatives, which include implementing key social responsibilities projects that positively reflect the values embodied by the FSFW brand.

“I want to give myself over to the community and not only be part of it,” she said.

Mekyla Norval (12) claimed the title in the Face of FSFW junior category, while Magdelize Myburgh claimed the title in the teen category.
