See what went down behind the scenes of the model search, right up to the final catwalk
The dust has settled and the winners have been announced. If you’re still suffering withdrawal symptoms after all the excitement of the Project M model search, you’re in luck!
Watch this video to relive all the moments and see the entire Project M journey, including previously unreleased footage of behind-the-scenes action!
Handpicked from over 1,200 hopefuls, the 18 finalists received hair makeovers, courtesy of Jeric Salon, to bring out their features better, and underwent basic model training with Now Models founder Addie Lee.
Armed with their newfound confidence and skills, they then moved on to the photo shoot challenge. A completely new experience for some of them who had never been in front of a professional lens in a studio setting before, they nevertheless did their best to put what they had learnt to use as they worked the outfits they were given, along with the Cyber Colors makeup looks provided by Sasa.
All the while, online voting was going on to determine who would be crowned Most Popular male and female among them. We hope you voted for your favourites!
Finally, it was time to conquer the runway. Under the guidance of stylist and show choreographer Jerome Awasthi, our tenacious finalists rocked the runways at Bugis Junction and Bugis+ over two weekends in April. Beside handling their nerves catwalking in a public venue and remembering choreography, they also had to take on board constructive criticism in order to improve their runway game, as doled out by the four judges – Nuyou editor Terence Lee, Female editor Noelle Loh, Bugis Junction and Bugis+ marketing communications manager Mandy Chiu and Now Models founder Addie Lee. The winners were then crowned live at Bugis+.
