Who we are
I would like to introduce Miss & Mister International Models – MMIM to you. MMIM is a Belgian modeling agency that, in addition to casting models, is also linked to international Miss and Mister pageants. Every year we host our own Miss & Mister pageant and send our winners to the biggest international pageants: Man Of The World, Mister Model International, Mister International, Manhunt International, Mister Supranational, Mister Grand International, Mister Global for the men. And for the women; Miss Eco International, Miss Eco Teen International, Miss Supranational, Miss Jungle International. Abroad, our national winners compete against dozens of other misses and misters (from different countries) for the international main titles.
What makes us different from other national pageants is that, in addition to our miss and mister pageant, we also work with various modeling agencies in Belgium and abroad. Our models can also be booked by our customers via our site. That is why we are not only a pageant, but also a modeling agency. All our models are prepared within our organization for the modeling and media world. For example, MMIM gives its models a complete portfolio, catwalk and media training, stage experience, nutrition and fitness coaching, beauty treatments and connections within the fashion world. Our models are therefore qualified for fashion shows as well as high fashion and commercial photo and video shoots.
This year we will host our pageant during our Fashion Weekend in De Oktoberhallen in Wieze. During this event, brands and designers get the chance to put their collection in the spotlight. In addition, MMIM is presenting a new concept for the MMIM Castings this year: Touring Flanders with public Castingdays. These events will also include a fashion show in collaboration with local retailers. In this way we also put these local traders in the spotlight and we can even help certain fashion-related stores to present their new collection to the public.
The Miss & Mister International Models organization offers a trajectory in which the chosen finalists learn all the tricks of the modeling and media profession. The experience within our trajectory offers personal growth, professionalism to become inspiring leaders and role models and also creates new opportunities for success. The finalists chosen by our organization are potential models/actors/presenters/television personalities who, in addition to their outward beauty and own personal goals, actively engage with humanitarian issues and have a voice for positive betterment in the world.
MMIM strives for quality and within 2 years MMIM has grown into the largest national election in Europe. This allows us to guarantee quality for our models, but also for our customers.
