FIJI Fashion Week will soon launch a Miss Teen Model competition to attract more models for the annual fashion show.

FJFW managing director Ellen Whippy-Knight confirmed 25 new models turned up to the only audition for the May event with only three selected.

"The rest did not meet the minimum height requirements, which is 172 cm for women and 175cm for men," she said.

She said they would not be running any more auditions and would rely on their scouts to find new models.

"We will also be launching the Miss Teen Model Competition with our new naming rights sponsor and we will use this to attract new models."

FJFW model manager Meliki Temo said they had only one model audition this year because of the short preparation time for the fashion event.
