Everyone wanted to work with experienced models. I was once asked that if event organizers or fashion designers only prefer working with experienced models then how debutante will ever get a chance. Hence, I took it up on myself to give budding talent a platform where they are mentored by industry experts and this significantly fast tracks their experience and career path. Such talent hunts definitely help the aspiring candidates.“
