Fashion modeling can lead one to social and economic development if done with extreme creativity and aspiration. This is because modeling is an income generating job like others especially if the talent is developed and exposed. A model is a person who poses or displays for purposes of art, fashion or other products and advertising while a fashion model is a woman/man who wears clothes to display fashions.

We are carrying out auditions early enough to allow the participants to get well prepared. We’re bringing fashion professionals from Belgium to train them with the models for the main show in July.”
