Top Model Of Colour Event Review

Despite a full day at Curlvolution next stop was London’s Grand Connaught Rooms to attend Top Model of Colour Season 8 which is hosted by Mahogany Models Modelling Agency.
Over the years I have seen how TMC not only gives its contestants platform to start their modelling careers but gives them a first-hand look at what the modelling is like. It makes me smile when I see the previous contestants in magazines and gracing catwalks further in their career. Yu only have to look at TMC Season 5 winner Nana Afua Antwi who has since been in magazines such as Black Hair Pride and Fabulous Magazines, walked in London Fashion Week for Matthew Williamson and is the face of E'lon Cosmetics in America
I welcomed the Malibran Organic Prosecco at the exclusive VIP reception while I unwound and mingled with the guests and lusted over the African print skirts the staff were wearing.
The contest was hosted by the very charismatic Gayle Thompson attendees were entertainment by Mekeart Tribe traditional dancers and sets

from singers P.Nology from The X Factor 2012 and Antix while judges deliberated over who out of the 18 beautiful contestants would ultimately be crowned Top Model Of Colour.

Final 5 contestants
I would like to mention that TMC is the only competition in which contestants are provided with hair styling, make up and wardrobe, which I feels evens the playing field and takes a bit of financial pressure off of the contestants.
I remember talking to the contestants at a recent beauty pageant that I attended (I won’t say names) and I was shocked about how much they spent on their outfits make-up and hair some of them even came with their own stylists and make-up artists!!
TMC Judges 

I didn’t envy the judges for having to make such a difficult decision (even though I was rooting for my cousin Aisha to win)
Miss Aisha got through to the final 11 but didn't win still proud of her though

After fun filled evening which included a demonstration of how to rock the catwalk by Mr Mahogany himself

B Kiane AshmanSwaby was announced as the winner
