Luckily South Africa has an abundance of talent and Juan is holding thumbs that one of the talented upcoming or established designers will come forward to dress him for success.

The designer that puts his or her hand up for this challenge will receive sizable exposure for their brand and will get extensive coverage in the various publications associated with the Pink Loerie and Mr Gay World, as well as interviews on the media partner of both events, GaySA Radio.
