About XAMAS Ice Model Contest
Organized by the global brand of professional sports fashion XAMAS, the Ice Model Contest is a platform for young ice skaters to show their talent, physique, body movement and total image. Ice skaters have their own unique character and gifts. Whenever they slide, flip jump or spin on the ice stage, every motion is the expression of their inner world, sentiment and rhythm. Being bold and confident are athletes’ essential traits during their performance or competition on the ice stage. Otherwise, they could not complete the interplay of slow and dynamic movements through their body language and innate power. Likewise, models in front of the camera or on the runway share same qualities. To up-level them, XAMAS has hosted the Ice Model Contest every two years since 2011 to provide ice-skaters with a not-to-be-missed opportunity to express their character and fashion statement through costumes.
The Ice Model Contest welcomes the participation of both male and female ice skaters aged between 9 and 23. Since its inception in 2011, the contest has become a bi-annual event warmly embraced by ice skaters and their parents. Finalists of every edition get the chance to wear costumes designed by Samantha Giraud, the founder of XAMAS. The winner of the “Ice Model” title would come under the spotlight across the ice skating scene and become the image ambassador of XAMAS’ upcoming seasonal catalogue. Held in Glacier@Festival Walk in Kowloon Tong for the first time, the Ice Model Contest 2017 is open to students from international schools and non-ice skaters to join, thereby, further promoting ice skating sports to the world.
Finale: 31 October 2017
Venue: Festival Walk Glacier
