Call of the ramp
Lakmé Fashion Week (LFW) has been a launch pad for many new faces, and this year was no different. As many as 76 aspiring female models from across the globe, including India auditioned for Lakmé Fashion Week Summer / Resort 2013, of which four were selected by a panel of judges.
The finalists — Pallavi Singh, Bhumika Arora, Radhika Nair, and Sangya Lakhanpal — were chosen after three rounds of auditions, each judged by a nine-member panel. The models were evaluated on many parameters, including poise, confidence, personality and their ability to embody and personify a designer’s vision on the runway.
The jury panel comprised a mix of LFW advisory board members, fashion experts, including designer Neeta Lulla; show directors Anu Ahuja, Lubna Adams and Alison Kanuga; columnist Nonita Kalra; along with Shalini Raghavan, marketing manager, Lakmé.
