In keeping with the need to treasure hunt for a kaleidoscope of personalities, who will be the next big thing, as the new year brings rays of hope, the Fashion Design Council of India (FDCI), is coming up with the #GetNoticed model hunt.
This is being done, in association with Wilderbee Talent Camp (WTC), by supermodel Lakshmi Rana.
The FDCI and WTC will initiate the process with online applications from aspiring models. Interestingly, to break the mould of perceived “perfection”, it will be inclusive. So whether you are regular, petite, plus-size, or transgender, everyone is welcome to apply.
The fortunate 15 new faces will be selected from online applications and invited to the FDCI Office to undergo an intensive training module designed by Lakshmi Rana. This in-depth program will be conducted over three days, during the first week of February, and conclude with a jury on the fourth day.
Three models will be selected from the 15 shortlisted ones, who will get a chance to strut on the coveted India Fashion Week runway.
“The FDCI has always been a thought leader, we believe in not just discovering talent, but also nurturing it to touch the summit. As the world is opening up to limitless possibilities, we have chosen a way that reaches out to millions, aspiring to realize their embellished dreams. Wilderbee Talent Camp by Lakshmi Rana is one of the first all-inclusive training camps and we feel confident that this intensive training by her will be of immense value to the newcomers,” says FDCI Chairman Sunil Sethi.
