The Zimbabwe Models Awards provided 2016 with a rare moment of fashion artistry as industry heads turned up in masterful garments for what could become the country’s premier awards ceremony in terms of excellence.

Whether you turned your head to the right, left or you looked back or in the front, it was just a sea of a rainbow and a galaxy of jewels, gold, silver and diamonds.

The fashion stakes were just too high it made difficult to come up with the best-dressed persons of the night, and the venue helped as well, as Pablo’z VIP is known for its strict adherence to excellence.

Awards Director and Founder Mercy Mushaninga really provided a reimagined approach to the previous ceremony with all winners walking away with carefully carved trophies and certificates.

The event kicked off right on time, only that the rains affected the red carpet moments but the venue inside was arranged in such a way that you could actually see what everyone was wearing.

Running under the theme ‘Remembering the Life of Our Heroin Kiki Divaris’ the ceremony provided with it exciting categories like most flamboyant personalities.

Business persons Genius Kadungure and Zodwa Mkandla were crowned Most Flamboyant male and female respectively.

Most Flamboyant Wedding went to the first famliy’s  Bona and Simba Chikore.

Univesity of Zimbabwe’s youngest graducate Maud Chifambe won Best trendsetter education whilst singer and fashionista Cindy Munyavi won Best trend setter fashion.

Model Michael Steve Reks Jacobsen  was the biggest winner of the night as he walked away with trophies in Best Fashion Male Model, Best Commercial Model, Most Educated Model and Model Of the Year.
