IGIGI will run the contest entitled National Model Search on its website in order to select the model of the year out of the twelve model-of-the-month winners. Entrants will have a chance to apply on IGIGI website between 12:01 AM on the 1st of the month and 11:59 PM on the last day of the current month and the winner of the month will be announced by the 25th of the following month. For entrants who apply between October 1st and October 31st, the winner will be announced on the website by November 25th. More information can be found under promotions section at www.igigi.com. DeVoe Signature Events, www.dseventsinc.com and Divine Magazine will also be major contributors throughout the contest.
“We are extremely excited about this contest” said Yuliya Zeltser, IGIGI Founder. “At IGIGI, we have always been very conscious of using models that are truly representative of the curvaceous beauty out there in the community, and it has tremendously helped us establish and maintain a strong rapport with our customers. As a designer, I think it is very important that we continue to scout fresh, new faces that our customers can identify with.”
Model Services Agency will provide the model of the year with a one year modeling contract, a
free photo test with a top photographer in New York, dinner for two, and theater tickets. IGIGI will award her with a $500 IGIGI gift certificate and participation in an IGIGI photo shoot with professional models, and run a feature article about the winner on its website. In addition, she will have a consultation session with model guru Catherine Schuller of www.curve-style.com, modeling coaching by DeVoe Signature Events and the opportunity to appear as a special runway guest in their Dangerous Curves Tour.
IGIGI will run an interview with the twelve models of the month on IGIGI LifeStyle section as well as reward each winner with a $100 IGIGI gift certificate, a book on fashion or modeling by one of the authors and stylists IGIGI works with, and a consultation session on modeling with a representative from Model Service Agency.
“This is a great opportunity for all aspiring models out there” said Anthony Higgins, Director of Model Services Agency. “There is a huge demand for plus-size models, and we are delighted to partner IGIGI to discover new faces for the industry.”
IGIGI collections are inspired by the latest European and American trends. The designs are created with a goal to accentuate and celebrate the beauty and sensuality of the curvaceous female figure rather than cover it up with piles of fabric. IGIGI believes that words like ample, opulent, curvaceous, and voluptuous should be mainstays in the fashion dictionary.
Based in the heart of San Francisco, IGIGI designs, manufactures, and distributes apparel and accessories for fashion-loving women sizes 14-32. IGIGI understands and strives to fulfill the needs and desires of the under-represented modern, voluptuous customer. IGIGI apparel and accessories can be found online at www.igigi.com, as well as at specialty boutiques and stores.
