During the grand finals, the judges gave points based on our performances basically on three rounds. The Opening round, Eco wear and the Evening wear. In the opening round, we basically introduced ourselves confidently wearing age appropriate which included their fabric color requirement. In the Eco wear portion, as required, we personally created an outfit for ourselves that was from a recycled clothes or material. We were then required to post on the evidence of the creation privately on facebook, tagging it to the organization’s director. In the evening gown, we were judged based on the appropriateness, individuality and personality. In addition to that, there were also points taken prior the grand finals which was based on our efforts in raising awareness on various issues we were interested in by the articles we shared online; as well as the community and charitable work we actively done during the set period.
