I am quite looking forward to the highly anticipated Grand Finale of Top Model South Africa (TMSA); the biggest and most popular model search in the country, which is taking place tomorrow, Saturday 18th of February 2017 at Carnival City in the Big Top Arena.
TMSA is by quite possibly THE most prestigious platform for new models to get discovered in South Africa. Not only do a host of local talent have the opportunity to be spotted and signed by various top modelling agencies locally and internationally, but the winners (one male and one female) will also compete in London for the international title, Top Model Worldwide.
The two winners are also invited to London Fashion Week, a major highlight on the international fashion scene.
Last year’s female winner, Anri Pretorius, went on to win Top Model Worldwide, which has subsequently
catapulted the fashion beauty into a well known international model. Anri has since signed with Boss Models
in South Africa and Base Models in London, and has featured in many elite modelling gigs around
The latter includes walking in one of the most celebrated fashion events in the world, London
Fashion Week – and anyone on the modelling circuit knows what this can do to one’s career.
Last year’s male winner, Evan van Soest, has signed with Ice Models in South Africa, LST
Models in the UK as well as Base Models in the UK. One of Evan’s latest accolades includes a major
editorial spread for Maxim Magazine.
“This year’s Grand Finale promises to be the biggest and most glamorous one yet”, says Suzette Marais,
CEO of Top Model South Africa. “Apart from being hosted in the spectacular Big Top Arena at Carnival
City, the production will also be managed by Producer/Choreographer Willie Venter, and will showcase
designs by fashion designers: Sun Goddess, Gerry Elsdon, Matte Nolim, Gerrit Pienaar, Michael
Ferguson and Gina Maxine”.
The TMSA Grand Finale is set to be one of the most talked-about model events of 2017, filled with red
carpet splendour, breath-taking fashion – attended by A-list celebrities and top media alike.
