THE Pink Diamond Academy of Sphiwe Benasho is getting unimaginably huge as it is now in search of 500 models and seemingly not losing that glamour signature exquisite touch.
Sphiwe tells DStv entertainment that this year is huge for her as she celebrates one year of success for the Pink Diamond Academy.
She can’t wait to even polish her gem further to that gleaming glitter during this year’s offering of classic male and female models
more especially that she will co-work with one of the renowned boutiques t-Yamis Collection for that outfit collection.
“Age size and color does not mater” says Sphiwe as she has a goal of polishing these models into a uniform glittering Pink!
She goes on to say; “We are going to have interesting categories of Male, Female, Kids, and Family models,”- whatever she means by family.
Now proprietor of Yamis collection Sonika Mbewe says dressing the Pinks will be one of her boutique’s pleasures as she happens to have designer clothes for all ages, and body size; just in line with Sphiwe’s search.
“Pink Diamond is looking for a variety of models and that corresponds well with Yamis Collations’ vision of stoking different sizes of clothes on both gender that are really fashionable and up-to-the-minute though with a very soft price tag… it’s just a perfect collaboration,” Sonika says.
As a member of the world modeling Association, Pink Diamond is seemingly eager to developing the modeling and pageant industry in Zambia by working international academies to literary bring out the best.
Sphiwe says with the smooth experience that she has had since she set up her Pink Diamond Academy that was aimed at grooming models of all ages, color and sizes to that professional image, she feels time can never be better than now to expend her search spectrum.
Sphiwe says her Academy will create opportunities for its 500 models as TV presenters, Advert Models, Radio Presenters Event hostesses, Golf event, Actors and Actresses and dancers. This is additional to the runway fashion range that will come from the same list.
“As Pink Diamond, we will manage these opportunities by creating safety for the models from abuse, swindlers, and theft,” Sphiwe says. The preparation for this massive search is underway!
