20-year old Rehanna Warren, of St. Patrick is the winner of the first ever Face of Grenada (FOG) Fashion and Runway competition.
The young lady from St. Patrick burst into tears before hundreds gathered at the Youth Center last Saturday night when the result was announced.
A total of 8 young ladies – Keresha Lewis, Rehanna Warren, Aria Francis, Akida Mc Guire, Lydris George, Sarafina Andrews, Cady Jeffery and Gillian Dottin were chosen through a series of auditions and online applications.
For the past three months the contestants have been going through a series of photo shoots that were judged by Nu Woman Magazine, with Rehanna leading the point standings into competition night at the Youth Center.
She also walked away with the prizes for Ms. Photogenic, Best Unconventional Wear and Best Cultural Wear.
Face of Grenada (FOG) “Beauty with a Purpose” was founded by Roxanne Graham with the aim to give young women more opportunities within the fashion industry regionally, and at the same time allow them to use this opportunity to embark on a socio-economical or environmental platform.
Sponsored by Legend Way International, Rehanna will be featured on the cover and pages of Nu Woman Magazine, a Bahamian and Caribbean magazine and also have her very own website exclusive with Potent Magazine.
Amongst other prizes is a trip to Trinidad sponsored by Roberts Caribbean Ltd. to participate in San Fernando Fashion Week, $2,500 and other sponsored prizes.
Two other contestants will also be featured in Nu Woman Magazine this summer – Aria Francis and Sarafina Andrews.
Other winners last Saturday were Sarafina Andrews (Best Introduction and FOG/Digicel Public Choice), Akida Mc Guire (Best Upcycling Wear) and Aria Francis (Best Speech and Evening Wear).
