Opportunity for Wide Spectrum of New Faces to Star in Westfield Style Pasifika Spectacular

Model Search With a Difference

Next week hundreds of potential ‘new faces’ will get the opportunity to strut their stuff in the Westfield Style Pasifika Model Search at Westfield Shopping Centres at Manukau City and the North Shore.

Everyone who thinks they have what it takes is welcome to enter and can come along and register on the day.

“ The fantastic twist to this model search is that every size, shape, colour and age, both male and female, the bold and the beautiful are encouraged to get up on the stage,” said the show’s Producer, Stan Wolfgramm. “Style Pasifika has no preconceptions and is the celebration of the great melting pot which is this part of the world.”

Seventy will be chosen to showcase at the Westfield Style Pasifika pre-judging and from there up to 30 fresh new faces could end up on the catwalk on the two nights of the Show in October.

Westfield Style Pasifika is New Zealand’s largest fashion award and glorious fusion of fashion, music and dance which will be on stage live for two nights on October 5th and 6th in Auckland Town Hall. It is also filmed over the two nights for a television special
Entry forms are available on or in the shopping centres on the day and anyone wishing to enter can just turn up with the form or fill one in on the spot.

Modeling Agency, Vanity Walk will be at each of the shows scouting for fresh talent, and are also offering a prize package of a Vanity Walk modeling course for “ you and your best friend”.

Each centre will host the model search over two days. To enter, potential models simply have to turn up at Westfield Shore City or Manukau City at the times listed below.

The model searches are next week on:

Westfield Shore City:

Thursday September 7 between 4 & 8pm

Joseph Cederwall Review: NZSO Plays Zappa

The first of the NZSO’s Shed Series concerts at the more informal and intimate space of Wellington's Shed 6 last Friday night featured music composed by, or with a connection to Frank Zappa.

Scoop Review of Books: Martin Edmonds' The Expatriates

This book is an extension of, and tribute to, the life’s work of James McNeish. Without sacrificing any degree of authorial independence, the result is gracefully written, handsomely produced, and likely to propagate many further works of its kind. More>>

Joe Cederwall Review: WOMAD 2018 - Harmony of Difference (part 1)

A friend described WOMAD as his “favourite white middle class celebration of diversity.” There is certainly an echo of truth to this as the crowd is still largely white and middle class, but this WOMAD for me represented that a better world is possible ... More>>

Harmony of Difference (part 2)

Top international world music artists seldom make it down to this neck of the woods, so for those of us into this sort of thing WOMAD is certainly a welcome addition to the cultural calendar.

Howard Davis Review: A Bigger Splash - Te Papa Celebrates Twenty Years

Considering the available resources, this is a decidedly hit-and-miss affair, mainly due to some highly questionable curatorial decisions. In their overweening wish to "push boundaries," Charlotte Davy and Megan Tamati-Quennell have made a number of serious miscalculations by ignoring a basic rule - keep it simple. More>>
