Challenge # 7- Go Sees on Honshu Island.

Hello my beautiful top 6 congratulations on making it to the overseas destination of this season of the Star Academy. There are only a few more weeks left until the Grand Finals and the competition is about to get even more fierce. We are here in the beautiful port city of Osaka here in Honshu Island Japan. Osaka is known for its incredible mix of traditional Japanese culture and its bustling modern nightlife scene. From the historic landmarks such as the Osaka Castle, and the Osaka Mint which stuns its visitors by showcasing Japan’s natural beauty. To Osaka’s modern man-made marvels such as the Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi which are primary tourist attractions due to their vast array of restaurants and shopping centers. In this weeks challenge you ladies will be partaking on your very first go-sees. A top model must always be able to impress designers and give a positive first impression as that is how they book jobs to survive in the industry. Today you ladies will be sightseeing the beautiful sites of Osaka while also vying to impress Japan’s most established fashion designers. There are a maximum of 5 potential designers you can visit today but move quickly as certain designers only have time to review a certain number of girls. Whichever designer you choose to visit first is up to you and each designer is looking for a set of different criteria so make sure you impress them with your amazing modelling skills. Good Luck beauties the go-sees challenge is very difficult and only the fiercest will prevail. On your way out make sure to grab a bus pass and some pocket money and enjoy your go-sees and sightseeing the beautiful city of Osaka. You have 24 hours to complete this challenge beauties!

-For this challenge you don’t have to post all your go-sees visits all at once you can post them as you do them but be careful as each designer only has a limited amount of time to asses you ladies.

1 - > ~ This was my first picture in this comp, and it represents my potential mixing ethereal and moviment features
> ~ I feel like this shot is extremely underrated and shows versatility from me, showing I can also do fierce and dark
> ~ Another side of me as I can also do high class commercial

2 - ~ You can't get more avant garde than that, and this is me wearing an original Yohji design

{Rei Kawakubo}

1 - (from 0:54 to 1:05) ~ Here you can see a slower more high fashion walk of mine but without putting my trademarked sassiness aside, of course

2 - For me, fashion is a way to express myself. Letting go of my true feelings from deep down inside in an artistic healthy way. It's what makes me feel closer to people and really connect with them.

Butterfly outfit photo :

Candice's clothing represents the Angola White Lady Butterfly
example photo :

i chose this outfit as it resembles the butterflies unique uneven wings which i think the frills in the outerwear represent perfectly and the white top representing the white spots over all the outfit is sassy and fierce like a butterfly

Portfolio :
1) - this phot represents how fierce i am and how structured my poses can be
2) - this phot shows that i can work well with others and total sell a brand or article
3) - this is one of my favorite photos i believe it shows that im willing to do whatever it takes to get the job/shot done ( like dying my beuatiful long blond locks a wild and freaky color )

1 - > ~ This psychedelic has all to do with Hanae's aesthetic
> ~ My wonderland photo also has the fantasy vibe the designer is all about
> ~ Last week's shot is also imaginative and creative

2 - ~ I'm representing a cabbage white butterfly in a deluxe version. I was inspired by the tones and overall shape. I incorporated the furry texture through my shoes.

runway : ( 1:14-1:36)

Fashion to me is a beautiful way to express yourself and show off any and all of your best attributes . Fashion is like art it can make everyone see things differently and most of all make us feel , cloths have the ability to make us all feel certains ways regardless of who or how the items are worn .

{Junko Yoskioka}

1 - ~ I said before and will repeat: ethereal is the word that sums me. In this classic looking modern take of a wedding dress, the veil is not on the head, but on the body.

2 - Elegance, poise and charisma. You can be the best model in the world, but you won't book any jobs without these qualities, they represent the door for opportunities in this business.
