Phil
*What’s your background in modeling? When and why did you get started? Was it for the glamour? The money? Pure kicks?

Mwangala
“I started in 2010 when I took part in “Cynthia Kanema’s quest for Zambia’s supermodel”, were I managed to make it to top 16…. Before that, I really never even dreamnt about modeling, its something I stumbled on to give a try, and since then, I have just loved it…… I’ve gone on to get the title of Miss CBU 2011 when I was there for a year, I also made it as one of the 20 finalists in Pure Managements Model Search run by R&G events last year (2013), and I’ve done a few modeling jobs along side.”

Phil
*Who are some of your favorite models and designers, and why?

Mwangala
“For Designers, I Love Estelle Mantel Designs by Victoria and Esther,there outfits are really amazing and creative, they have a touch of elegance which I feel I am all about and the fact that they are Zambian makes me proud the more…. I also like Elikem, The Tailor Designs, I am a huge fan of african prints and I love how he turns african prints into modern beauty…. My favourite models would include Alek Wek! I just love an african model that’s makes it biggggggg! Same applies to Fatima Siad! Especially that she made it on the show of America’s next top model…. I also like Oluchi for obvious reasons and Tyra Banks too!

Phil
*Where do you generally shop?

Mwangala
“I shop anywhere I find something I like I don’t have one specific place….”

Phil
*Out of all of the photos the photographer took of you, which is your favorite and why?

Mwangala

“I love it because of my outfit! My smile! I think everything just looks beautiful about it!”

Phil
*What do you dislike about modeling?

Mwangala
“I dislike how people choose to perceive modeling as an excuse for illiterate people to expose their bodies…..”

Phil
*What does fashion mean to you?

Mwangala
“Fashion to me is a mixture of clothes shoes hair makeup to look good enough…. That’s the part where people say “You have or don’t have a good fashion sense”…”

Phil
*What are some things you dislike/hate about the fashion industry?
*Do you do your own hair and make-up?

Mwangala
“I don’t like how most fashion trends are advertised on slim ladies, makes it seem like it only for small bodied ladies…
I always do my own make up…. So far, I’ve always done it, and I like how I do it….”

Phil
*Describe the atmosphere when you’re on a shoot. Do you play music? Do you talk with the photographer between shots?

Mwangala
“I’m always taking to the photographer…. I’m more relaxed that way, I don’t like too much silence it either means you’re doing the right thing or everything is just wrong…”

Phil

Phil
*What advice do you have for other aspiring models?

Aspiring models _ be humble, be confident and be yourself…every other personality is taken….

Right now I can’t think of anything to add on…..
