New Delhi, Feb 12, (ANI): Hundreds of models thronged the auditions of upcoming fashion extravaganza Delhi Fashion Week-2009 on Thursday.
The Delhi Fashion Week-2009 will take place from February 19 to February 24 and will be organised by Fashion Foundation of India (FFI).
This all India model hunt was spearheaded by an eminent jury comprising of designers Rohit Bal, Malini Ramani, Atsu Sekhose and Alpana Mittal, adman Prahlad Kakkar, leading models Fleur Xavier and Neha Kapoor and fashion photographer Tarun Khiwal.
Delhi based designer Malini Ramani spoke at length about the qualities she was looking for in a model.
"I am looking for a good model and a good model has many qualities you can't see them all in upfront 30 seconds. What we are looking instantly is their walk, they must have good legs, good basic body structure and that works for current clothes," Ramani said.
Fashion Model, Fleur Xavier said that a model needs to have several qualities and revealed that she did spot some interesting faces.
"I think a lot of them were good and I think it's important as a model not just to be able to walk only well and be bad in other aspects. It is important to walk well, have a good body, it is important to look relatively decent or may have a unique face. It's important that all these components come together in order to be a good model," Xavier said.
Fashion Foundation of India, which is an apex body of fashion formed with a purpose of capacity building for the Fashion Designer and manufacturing industry, organizes the fashion extravaganza. (ANI)
