It was with great excitement that press, media and celebrities made their way to the Official Launch Party of Miss FTV Africa 2008 on 03 December 2008 at FTV Cedar Square. It was not only the fashionistas, models and brand partners who were fascinated with the dresses, beauty and excitement of the new supermodel search for Africa - Miss FTV! Celebrities such as Margaret van der Westhuizen, Corine du Toit and even Dozi and Bok van Blerk were there to scope the scene. And with Gerry Rantseli-Elsdon as the host and Project Director, there were more than enough of who's who in the room!

As announced on the evening, 18 April 2009 will see two powerful brands - one a gaming and entertainment leader, the other a glamour icon around the world - come together to deliver a show unlike anything South African fashionistas have ever seen before.

Now for the first time, aspiring African fashionistas will have the chance to join the global hunt for the world's most esteemed runway title. Miss FTV will for the first time in its five year history produce a South African runway diva to compete in the world finals at the end of 2009. After a four-month long search that kicks off in January, scouts from the fashion industry, as well as FTV's partner, Shine Group, will deliver 16 dynamic fashion model finalists from across the nation's four biggest cities, with the grand final happening on 18 April 2009 at Emperor's Palace.

FTV Cedar Square will see the Johannesburg leg of the casting tour take place on Saturday, 31 January.
