The President of the Makeni Models Union, Patrick Babah Koroma, has announced that they will be organizing a fashion runway show called “New Skull versus Old Skull” with the theme “Passion Meets Experience”.

This event aims to revitalize the modeling industry in Makeni and establish the union as a reputable organization.

The show will feature over two hundred models, including those from neighboring districts. It will serve as a competition and learning platform for the new skull models to interact with the experienced old skull models who have won numerous crowns and awards. The old skull models will guide the new models on the path to success.

Proceeds from the event, which will be held on May 12th at the Garden State Complex, will be used to implement the union’s structural plan.

This includes acquiring a multi-purpose secretariat that will house a photo shoot studio, costume designers, a mini-bar and restaurant, and a conference room. This move will ensure that the office space remains lively and functional.

However, the lack of sponsorship from individuals and corporate institutions is a significant challenge for the Makeni Models Union. It may force the postponement of the three-day seminar scheduled for later this weekend. The union will provide an update via a press release if the situation persists.

In conclusion, Patrick Babah Koroma appealed to all Makeni residents to support the event and contribute to changing the modeling industry’s narrative.

Modeling is no longer just for fun; it is also a means of making money. Makeni is the home of fashion, and the Bombali district has produced two Mr. Sierra Leone winners. Therefore, Koroma called on entertainment lovers to support the event with a fee of NLe 20k
