Rolling out the red carpet of retail, Eastgate Shopping Centre is in pursuit of its fresh, new face for 2017. A coveted annual event on the fashion and retail calendar, the Eastgate Look of Fashion, will be hosted on Saturday the 23rd September 2017. Fresh-faced hopefuls, between the ages of 17 and 25, will take to the stage to claim the title of the new face of Eastgate.
With an electric atmosphere and a diverse mix of shoppers, supporters and style icons, the Strelitzia Court will showcase some of South Africa’s shining stars strutting their stuff in this signature event. The event will be a visual feast of fashion and unparalleled entertainment, supplied by Eastgate, recognised as retail leader in branded fashion trends.
So much more than style, the Eastgate Look of Fashion is renowned for its rich history and prestige as a pageant. The event provides a platform into the world of pageantry on a local and international scale. Entries ran from the 12th to the 27th August 2017, and scouts scoured the mall for standout beauty over the weekends. A professional photographer with a temporary studio was located near the Zara store and competition entry forms could be found at the info desk in the centre. Online entries were also received at: http://www.eastgateshops.com/competitions.htm

The winner will also fast-track her way into the Miss South Africa pageant, with an automatic entry into the semi-final interview round of the pageant. Both Bokang Montjane and Marilyn Ramos held the title of Eastgate’s Look of Fashion, before going on to win Miss South Africa in 2010 and 2012 respectively.
