In the advent of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and even Youtube, there's no doubt that finding new breeds of talents is way, way easier than before.

January 30, as everyone is busy finishing up their first month of 2019, Lourd, along with 9-female and 16-male models aspirants gather up at Creations Salon in BGC Stopover, Taguig City for the finale of New Faces, New Forces: CreationDoMenation. Armed with industry's top caliber personalities, photographers and make-up artists, the first cycle of New Faces, New Forces is one of Lourd's breakthrough projects this year, nurturing new breed of personalities for beauty and fashion industry, as well as breakthrough project for content creation and media production for his Youtube Channel - Lourd Ramos TV.

"It's about time that our country and the beauty and fashion industry acknowledge the true beauty of our race and of our youth. This contest is not just a search for fresh new faces, but rather a call to our industry leaders to turn back their attention to our beautiful youth who wish to aspire more and serve as a role model in our society, hence the title New Faces, New Forces," Lourd shares.
