Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2009 is scheduled and will be held from 18-23 march 2009. As the name says FDCI has again decided to partner the event with esteemed sponsor Wills Lifestyle. Bond started in 2006 has been extended for three more years and now both Wills lifestyle and FDCI will stand to provide platform to the best of Indian fashion.
Over the years, FDCI has been doing marvelous job in providing a base to the Indian fashion internationally. Many Indian and aspiring models have auditioned for upcoming Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2009, but the quality which was required was good presence skill, face to be remembered and fit body.
This is what jury members are looking exactly in a new faces of 2009 for Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Autumn/Winter.
Aparna Bahl, said, “The look on the ramp is very international these days, so a dusky Indian beauty with global appeal is what I would look out for along with good skin and a lot of individuality.”
Ashish Soni, said, “I’m looking for confidence, poise and something out of the ordinary, as the cliché goes “lots of attitude”… this one translated refers to not the usual qualities but something that a majority of the other girls don’t possess an interesting skin tone, body proportions, hairstyle and above all eye contact!”
Ayesha Thapar, said, “I’ll be looking for someone who has a complete package. It’s not important for a model to have only one outstanding feature, for instance, height alone does not make a model suitable for the ramp – but what important is how comfortable they are in their skin and how well coordinated they are in terms of their looks, attitude and poise on the ramp.”
Rahul Khanna, said, “I’m definitely looking for someone who makes a lasting impression on the ramp – someone who has an undeniable presence. The right attitude is also key for a model to have. I feel we have some great established models walking the runway, but we also need to look for new faces to introduce and launch.”
Tinu Verghese, said, “I’m looking for fresh faces, someone tall and slender with a great attitude and decidedly Indian features.”
Varun Bahl, said, “The look I’m going to be watching out for is one that is well divided and can carry and showcase Western as well as Indian wear. Additionally I’ll be looking for girls that are tall, young and have a lot of confidence on the ramp.”
Vidyun Singh, said, “The fashion week requires the models to be adaptive from one designers show to another and given that there is hardly any time to train them, there needs to be a basic understanding of ramp shows. I will try to choose the most versatile person who fits into the need of all designers, someone who can swing into the rhythm of Fashion Week with minimal intervention.”
