Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI) took new strides and recently conducted male model auditions #GETNOTICED for AIFWAW16.
Almost 200 aspiring models put their best foot forward showcasing confidence and poise for the 27th edition of the Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2016, in association with Maybelline New York. The event will be held from March 16 -20, in the capital at a new venue, the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium, Lodhi Road.
An eminent jury comprising designers Rohit Bal, Varun Bahl, Divyam Mehta and ace choreographer Anu Ahuja shortlisted 24 new talent, who will get an opportunity to walk the ramp for a specially curated menswear show to be presented by three young designers at the AIFWAW16. Models were evaluated on walk, fitness and attitude on the ramp.
Sunil Sethi, President, FDCI said, “We took a leap forward and after several years held the male model auditions for India Fashion Week. Almost 200 models came for the auditions. The FDCI board has decided to include one or two menswear shows as part of Amazon India Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2016 and going forward will increase the number. The menswear show at AIFWAW16 will give male models a platform to showcase their talent.”
