The final selection of models was tough as the group of finalists was composed by really top quality young models, so it all came down to the judges to choose which boy and which girl really had what it took! For 2 whole days, models were put to the test by working out a very tight schedule.

At their arrival in Barcelona, models immediately went to the head offices of Traffic Modelswhere they met their potential bookers and managers.

After an intensive morning at Traffic Models, the finalists were brought to La Maquinista where they had scheduled a long afternoon of fittings and rehearsals with choreographer Marie-Ange Schmitt and President of Fresh Faces Marie Christine Pollet, who trained the finalists for their final catwalk. At the end of such an exhausting day, models could relax and socialize at the Hotel Majestic and Hotel Inglaterra which were their accommodations during their stay in Barcelona.

After several long hours of catwalk training, it was time for the models to go into photo sessions! Cool sessions took place in the Americana of Tommy Mel’s – a fantastic and truly original american diner. The setting was amazing!

On the day of the Grand Final, models were ready to show off all of their model talent infront of the panel of judges and a large audience at La Maquinista and thanks to their special training with Marie Ange Shmitt and Marie Christine Pollet, they walked the runway like real professionals!

FashionTV filmed this great day for thier international FashionTV channel with the support of presenter Eleonore Alexandrakis! Check out the cool FashionTV video!

As with all fashion shows, backstage moments are very chaotic. The Fresh Faces Final Catwalk presented each model in 3 main looks: Casual, Trendy and Swimwear therefore every change of look implied also a change in make-up! The team of Make-up artists and Stylists really showed their professionalism in managing the backstage in the most organized way possible and for this we give a special thanks to the entire Make-up team and Stylist Monica and her assistants Patricia, Ana and Ewelina.
