Hi, Everyone! I hope you all are doing well. It’s being the longest time that I have written about fashion stories. If you all follow me on my Facebook page, then you would know that a few days back I had put up behind scene pictures of Amity University Super Model Hunt 2017.
I collaborated with Amity School of Fashion Design and Technology, Mumbai as their title sponsor. Ever since I started blogging, I never thought even in my wildest dreams to be the title sponsor of a Super Model Hunt. Destiny has its own plan and sometimes you let destiny decide things for you. I certainly had no confidence to do this, but I owe this to my dear friend Geetika Chaturvedi, who motivated and convinced me to do this.
The journey started with 80 registrations following a Poster shoot in November. In the next phase, all the 80 contestants were trained under Former Gladrags Miss Mumbai 2013 – Dimple Antony where 40 contestants were shortlisted.
To judge and groom our models for grand finale we had Former Ford Supermodel Winner – Ms. Megha Talekar Sarkar, who has represented India in various fashion weeks abroad.Through several rounds of individual walk accompanied with group choreography, she selected our 22 deserving finalists comprising of 12 girls and 10 boys.
