Jump on this one ladies, it’s a goodie with a grand prize of 30,000L. Loovus Dzevavor is searching for a new face to be the spokemodel of the brand. The winning model will appear alongside owners, Vikeejeah Xevion and LoovusDzevavor Resident in all of the ads including (but not limited to) event exclusives, limited editions, group gifts and magazine ads. They are looking for a model with a well-developed image, versatile look, exceptional sense of style, knowledge of fashion in both RL and SL as well as someone who understands the brand’s aesthetic.

Models will be required to style 2 looks, according to themes given to them at the time of selection, and submit a completed questionnaire, also provided to them once selected. The judges will then choose the top 10 finalists to move on to the final round for a live voice interview and runway show where they will choose the winner!
All ten finalists will receive a 2000L gift voucher as a thank you for their participation and as congratulations for making it to the finals. The top five finalists will become Loovus Dzevavor bloggers and feature monthly posts on the official website. The top three finalists will receive the entire Spring 2013 collection.
