The eModelsSA team treated fashion lovers with a night of glitz and glam during their fashion show at 59plenty in Bloemfontein last night.
The team modelled their own designs on the runway under the theme “Ancient Greece”. Their designs were judged by a designer from the City of Roses, who then awarded the winner with a R1000 cash prize. The founder and owner of eModels SA, Jeanré du Preez, explained that the theme was very symbolic to the agency as they have been around for 10 years and they remember all the hard work and laughter that has been put into the agency since 2009. She says that she is very excited about the turning point that has arrived for the agency.
Du Preez explained that she has been in the modelling industry since she was only four years old and has learned a few hard lessons since then. Excellence is what she continues to strive for and because she felt that eModels SA was losing that touch she has decided to downscale eModels SA and make it more exclusive for individuals who are serious about their careers.
“There is still so much work to be done in this industry and so much talent that I want to reach,” she said.
EModels SA wants to level the playing field and due to this they will no longer be asking for a monthly subscription fee or joining fee. The structure will change from weekly classes to monthly workshops for models in Bloemfontein and elsewhere.
Du Preez further said that private classes and online class will be available on request for those who feel that they need more attention after the workshops. The agency is now open to any individual who is willing to put in hard work.
