Afri Art Fashion Show’s Search for the Perfect Models

On Sunday 23rd April 2023, Trillion Looks store held its first Model casting call in search of the perfect models to walk the runway during the AFRI ART and fashion show scheduled for 15th July 2023.

The casting event happened at the MOTIV Space in Bugolobi and attracted over 80 models both male and female. The models graced the event and gave their best as they walked the runway to show the judges their skills and as well answered a few questions from the panel of judges.

Were the judges looking for experience or particular body sizes? NO! Even though the judges appreciated models who had walked runways before, a number of models without experience on the runway, were given a chance to prove that they have a future and career in modeling.
