New Zealand’s Next Top Model Cycle 2 : Auditions Coming to a Town Near You!

New Zealand’s Next Top Model is back for another round in 2010 and TV3 has just announced that they are about to start scouring the country looking for models to compete in cycle two.

As many of you will remember the debut season of NZNTM held in 2009 sparked all sorts of controversy. There was an uproar over the ‘size’ of one of the models and that the contestant in question was more suited to modeling of the ‘plus-size’ persuasion. Girls cried, walks were criticised and fashion industry guests cringed at the nude/non panties parade from one contestant. It actually made for some good reality television and NZNTM was the first kiwi produced show to really spark avid lunchtime conversation since ol’ Joey Henderson and the Shortland Street murders.

So dust off that two piece and get your runway walk sorted ladies because the search is on yet again for New Zealand’s Next Top Model!

Could it be YOU?

Auditions for contestants kick off  in Auckland on Saturday, 5 June and the scout team will cover eight locations throughout the country through to the final city of Tauranga, when the auditions end on Sunday, 13 June.

    I am sorry to say that the public in NZ has a long journey to go in terms of understanding “fashion”. Nudity is not news at all in the UK fashion circle, certainly not in the major fashion centres in the world.
    We need to remember that human didn’t use to wear anything.
    The issue of sizing has long been a controversal subject. Big is beautiful campaign has been very successful in the UK recently, thanks to M&S, one of the biggest retailers in the UK and our fashion guru, Gok.
    You, Fashion People in NZ, educate the public – SHOUT OUT LOUD, more and more, they will eventually, listen.
    I am an educater in Fashion, one of my priority is to help students to think outside their boxes. This is the only way to creativity, not to be bound by familiarity.
