As the saying goes “outer beauty attracts, but inner beauty captivates,” so the members of the Jj Spirit Foundation cultivate their inner beauty and outer beauty to captivate their audiences with the uniqueness of their Creole heritage.
Members are encouraged not only to express their talents in music and singing, but also the charming faces of the youth, their design creations and styles.
The Jj Spirit Foundation gives young people a chance to learn about a modelling career, but organizing fashion shows and giving them the chance to be spotted by a modelling agency.

The Foundation’s group of models are groomed by experts, and given the chance to take part in photo shoots around the country and they also prepare to take part in national cultural events, such as the fashion show of the Festival Kreol.
Many of them are today modelling with agencies in Seychelles and teaching other young model hopefuls how it is done.
One the biggest shows ‘Unmasked Catwalk’ was organized to celebrate the Foundation’s second year anniversary, in collaboration with one of its affiliated members from the U.K., Mrs Georgina Dhillon. It took place at the Berjaya Beau Vallon Bay Resort on Saturday 13th March 2010, and attracted a large crowd, who helped to raise funds for the Foundation.
The models showed off nine different varieties of collections from local and international designers from the United Kingdom, Seychelles, India and Russia.
It was an exciting show, especially as one of the models, Veronique Francourt, was spotted and invited by an Italian affiliated member to come to Italy for a fashion shoot where she was offered a modelling contract.
