Here's what the jury had to say about the event:
Sophie Choudry, Singer and Actress said, "We saw an extremely diverse and eclectic mix of girls – of different shapes and sizes from every corner of the country. What was most important for me was a fresh face, personality and confidence on the ramp. We found girls who broke the clutter and stood out. I can't wait to see them walk the ramp this season."
Shane Peacock, Fashion Designer said, "As a designer there are a few important things I look for – height, a confident walk, and charisma which is most important on the ramp. While the talent at the model auditions was exceptional, I think the girls we have selected are a unique blend of all three, and I'm very excited to see them walk the ramp this season."
Anu Ahuja, Choreographer and Show Director said, "A girl that stands apart from the rest, catches the jury's attention instantly and confidence on the ramp is key. The girls we chose today, while they stood out from the rest, are still diamonds in the rough, I look forward to grooming them for the season."
Ashwath Swaminathan, Head of Innovations, Lakmé said, "The turnout at today's model auditions was great and it was nice to see the enthusiasm in all contestants. Lakmé Fashion Week is a good platform for young talent to start their career and we are confident that the winners will really enjoy walking the runway this Winter/Festive season."
Jaspreet Chandok, Head of Fashion IMG Reliance said, "Each season, we choose fresh faces who have in the past gone on to walk national and international ramps. We hope that the girls selected today too receive the same opportunities and are able to build a flourishing career."
