ONE Model Management is one of the top modelling agencies in the US, and employs well-known models such as Claudia Schiffer, Petra Nemcova, and Karolina Kirkova.

Fortunately, this year the head of scouting and development for One Model Management, Lanny Zenga, is in Fiji to judge for the Miss World Fiji pageant.

"There was an agent and friend of mine who came here last year and signed Phillipa Steele who's now in New York, and I was quite jealous so I contacted Andhy Blake because I wanted to find the next Fijian girl," Mr Zenga said on Wednesday.

The multi-cultural aspect of Fiji is what initially drew Mr Zenga to Fiji and he is definitely seeing model potential.

"The mix of multi-culture girls in Fiji is very similar to what clients in New York are looking for.

"They love multi-ethnic girls with different backgrounds and culture."
