In his statement, Shaman said: “Model of Models International is a professional competition, so the support of the world’s textile and ready-to-wear industry, as well as the audio and visual broadcast companies of the advertising, series, and cinema industry, is very important to us. Our contestants set career goals for themselves in these three industries. Just as we work to meet the needs of our own industries from our own human resources, we also aimed to make this international competition a gateway to rising for models from other countries by holding it in our country in order to strengthen our country’s central position in the outside world. The models who win the International Model of Models title in the competition are ready to volunteer at every stage where they are socially needed. We will try to be helpful according to the requests that come in, based on their qualifications. We will also strive to be the locomotive in the professionalization and career advancement of every model who participated in our competition. For this purpose, we have also started working to provide artistic services.”
