Designers Anel Verna and Nicole Sainz, Miami Social and former Apprentice star Katrina Campins and actor Alfonso “Poncho” de Anda are among the diverse judges lending their expertise to the core panel to help find the newest Model Latina.
Maria Perez-Brown, Senior Vice President, Programming for Si TV and an executive producer on Model Latina Miami reflected on the unique elements of the series. “At Si TV, we are committed to developing dynamic programming as culturally rich as our audience. Model Latina proves that women who don’t fit the typical ‘size 0’ stereotype can still be successful role models.” She added, “I’m very proud of this series and I truly believe these young, hard-working, talented women epitomize brains, beauty and unique Latino style.”
Model Latina is an excellent platform for future models seeking to secure national exposure and actual fashion-business experience.
