BUILDING ALLIANCES

When I went to Sabah I felt it was a family working together. It was so good to see that these girls actually had a drive to come out of their houses and do something of their choice. So it defi nitely feels great to be a part of such Fashion Shows as ANANTA. But this event is something diff erent and I feel lucky to be here.

Well, I am so quite excited about it, I think it is unique concept of ge ng people from diff erent walks of life to come and model, dress showcasing. That means it has, it is just not looking nice. It has weight into it. People are a racted towards coming and either way par cipa ng in it. So, it is just not a pre y thing but it has a meaning behind it, that’s why so many diff erent women are interested to come and model for it.

PHOTO SHOOT

It is been wonderful working with Sabah Nepal. When Shris approached me earlier I was reluctant, because we don’t generally par cipate in a fashion shows. But when she explained me how ANANTA was going to be like, I was impressed so I said yes I am going to do it. I am going to go to the grass root level and help them in anyways I could.
