The MMS Model Search is the first male and female model competition in Australia specifically aimed at senior high school students with the final held during schoolies on the Gold Coast.
Qualifiers for the final were held in Adelaide, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
The finalists, who have been chosen from more than 1200 applicants, are being flown in to the Gold Coast to walk the runway one last time in order to decide who wins this exciting Australia wide model search. The winner will be sent to New York for 5 nights and be represented by New York’s Wilhelmina models (significant campaigns by the agency include: MAC, CoverGirl, L’Oreal, Donna Karan and Avon).
The revolutionary high fashion brand U totally Frock came on as the major sponsor of the search to support these talented youngster and empower them to spread their wings and achieve their dreams.
The brand has already made waves amongst fashionistas with men and women flocking to be a part of the innovative new brand U totally Frock adopting the titles "Frocker and FrockStar".
“I believe to be a Frocker or a FrockStar negativity is not in the description… We have to be positive, encouraging and supportive role models who are sharing their love and talent with the world. So let’s have fun, smile, laugh and love,”wrote Rebecca Saunders, self declared FrockStar, on the U totally Frock Facebook page.
U totally Frock launched officially in early 2012 and already has a strong following via social media. The clothes worn by Frockers and FrockStars by the Australian made fashion label, empowers the everyday person to be catwalk ready every time they step out the door.
“I frock because I love fashion, music and dance. I love life, I have style. I am me”-- Sunny Jegamohan, U totally Frock, Frock World TV Host.
The fashion label goes against normal conventions believing that everyone is beautiful and we should not be restricted to the classifications of fat, short, skinny, tall, average or plus size. Their belief is so strong that they took a stand by having real Facebook followers as their runway models at their first catwalk show in August. The Facebook followers now turned brand ambassadors are the ultimate Frockers and FrockStars with their positive energies shining and empowering their community by striving to achieve their dreams.
“Sponsoring the MMS Model Search was a natural progression for us,” said Nathalie Prince, co-founder of U totally Frock. “It's a natural fit as they are providing amazing career progression for young aspiring models. Holding it during schoolies whilst promoting a healthy clean living image as well as empowering the competitors with fantastic social media promotion and providing them with positive role models with their choice of judges and mentors are just a few factors which make this competition so exciting and we’re proud to be part of it.”
