In the world of local modelling, the Professional Models Association of the Philippines (PMAP) represents an elite class of drop-dead gorgeous women who are flawless, gorgeous, and ready to rock any assignment they need to undertake. These in demand stunners are everywhere—on billboards, in TV commercials, in editorials, and strutting their stuff on the hottest of runways.
When it comes to their female models, PMAP has a well of scintillating talent that delivers (all you need to do is check out these ladies' IG accounts to get familiar with their ways).
