The course will be summed up in a period of 12 weeks where they will be taught a number of techniques and undergo a “rigorous schedule of training” covering a varied topic range.
CEO Pereira has said, “At Winnielle Model Management, we strive for excellence. Our innovative team has never failed to bring fourth productions that always linger in the hearts of those who have experienced them. As things are today, we see a need for more than just professionally trained young men and women but young people who also have the skills they need to succeed in life and not fall prey to the ills of society.
Thus we have designed an empowerment course that meshes a teaching of model skills and techniques with timely knowledge on health and wellness and nutrition, personal management skills as it relates to time and money and setting and achieving goals, decision making, general etiquette, behavioural change, communication and personal and professional security among other topics.”
Through-out the course the participants will be a part of two photo-shoots as a test to their training, they will be styled by Fashion Caraibe’s Sannie Bowry and Plush Accessories Kirah Griffith.
Of the Empowerment Course WMM’s Operations Manager/PRO has said, “this is something that our society needs, for each of us to give back in whatever little way that we can to the betterment of our future, for our kids are our future and if we do not equip them with the tools they need to succeed then we do not have a successful future ahead of us,”
“It is our aim at Winnielle Model Management (WMM), with the help of our corporate partners to bring the beauty & fashion Industry back to life within this Federation. With our network of regional and international fashion Industry professionals we bridge the gap… It’s been done before and we are back to do it again”, said Pereira.
She concluded, “What we are proposing, with your support, is to once again host a High Class, Professionally executed, most exciting fashion event, blending both International & Local fusion to catapult St. Kitts into the Fashion arena as a place where fashion and culture is very much alive.”
