Miss World Zimbabwe UK wraps up Casting Roadshows

LONDON: The Miss World Zimbabwe UK (MWZUK) has entered the final phase of its search with finalists being announced next Friday.

The grand finale is set for the 1st of July in London, and the organizers have promised a world-class event.

Pageant Director Chiedza Ziyambe said that the casting roadshows have been successful and a host of young, talented girls have turned out in their numbers to be in with a chance to be part of the pageant this year.

“The last few weeks have been fantastic and an eye opener,” said Ziyambe.

“Having conversations with these young women, who have such high aspirations for their lives has kept us in sync with what kind of woman we are looking for to represent us, not only in the UK but on an international platform.

We are in the process of finalising the shortlist of contestants and we will be revealing them shortly,” she added.

The Miss Zimbabwe UK winner and her two princesses will be flown to Zimbabwe to compete for the Miss Zimbabwe 2017 title, with the overall winner being entered into the Miss World competition later in the year.

Tickets for the event are now on sale, with standard tickets available for £35. VIP tickets, which will guarantee guests front row seats, as well as a meal are available for £60 and can be purchased from the website at http://zimbabwefashionshowcase.com/miss-world-zim-uk/



Former Miss Zim Diamond winner and Pageant Organiser, Lorraine Chinouriri  said: “We want to give our guests a first class experience, at an affordable price and encourage you all to come out in your numbers and celebrate the exceptional talent that Zimbabwe has to offer.

The pageant this year will be held at the prestigious De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms. Situated on the Great Queen Street, that connects Covent Garden with Holborn in the West End of London, the iconic venue has been home to a number of high profile events dating back to 1775. It was once home to the original Freemasons’ Tavern before becoming a hotel in 1909.

Prizes for the pageant will include a character building session with FOSTA.  The winner will also become the Face of Cherrielle Cosmetics.

Casting roadshows began in April and covered a number of cities including London, Nottingham and Manchester.

Profiles of this year’s contestants will be featured on the website and will highlight stories of their modelling careers and community based initiatives.

The Miss World Zimbabwe UK campaign is a celebration of Zimbabwe, its culture and of women.

Approached by the organisers of Miss World following her outstanding work with the Zimbabwe Fashion Showcase, Ziyambe won the licence to host the show in late 2016.
