Winning the Capsule of Cosmic (CC) Journey’s Fitness Model Search 2021 has brought Zoey Soon one step closer to her goal of inspiring others to lead a healthy lifestyle.

The 26-year-old nutritionist and Pilates instructor was elated to be crowned the winner.

“I felt confident during the finale but did not expect to win the competition.

“With this new title, I hope to help people and influence them to lead a healthier lifestyle,” she told StarMetro after the contest’s finale at New World Hotel ballroom in Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Soon added that the training she received during the competition would help her in future endeavours such as modelling.

“We started the training programme in March but it was halted temporarily because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

“However, the sessions with our tutors were fun and I learnt a lot,” she said, adding that she could not wait to be part of CC Journey’s campaign.

Soon, who walked away with more than RM10,000 worth of prizes, will take on the role of CC Journey ambassador.

She will also be part of a special campaign alongside first runner-up Reenisha Kaur and second runner-up Alyssa Lee.

Organised by CC Journey, the Fitness Model Search attracted 100 participants who went through months of training, including lessons on walking the runway, modelling and getting into their best form.

A total of 15 finalists were then shortlisted to vie for the main prize at the competition’s finale.

The night also celebrated the launch of the brand’s new “Nothing But You” collection that combines fashion with function.

The finalists were also seen wearing the new collection while walking down the runway.

CC Journey founder and brand designer Yubin said the model search was open to women of all ages, regardless of their background.

“It was inspiring to see the contestants’ transformation and how each of them presented the outfits differently.

“Ultimately, I am looking for that one special person who exudes immense confidence, self assurance and ambition to be the face of our brand,” he said.

Made of cotton, spandex and the occasional chiffon, the new collection features 13 pieces – from sweatshirts to strappy tops as well as drawstring tops, skirts and sports bras.

“The concept behind the brand is ‘Power to Transform’.

“We want to bring out a mix and match design that allows the wearer to explore different styles and trends depending on the occasion,” Yubin added.

The Nothing But You collection is available at CC Journey store in Lumi Tropicana, Petaling Jaya and its online store at
