The much awaited Max Elite Model Look Finale went down last week at Sofitel Mumbai, BKC. After traveling to 8 different cities (Delhi, Chandigarh, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Guwahati and Mizoram) the Max Fashion team finally zeroed down to 18 young talented finalists.
The 18 finalists who were trained and groomed by Industry experts like Marc Robinson – Elite Model Look India 2016 Licensee and Fashion Director, Deepti Gujral – Supermodel, Dr. Sunil Bhoolabhai – Cosmetic Dental Expert, Dr. Mickey Mehta – Global Leading Holistic Health Guru, Kapil Bhalla – Hair and Make Up Expert walked the Grand Finale on 14th October, 2016 at Sofitel BKC, Mumbai. After much needed grooming and training the models gave their best performance to represent the Elite Model Look India 2016, which will take place later this year in Portugal at the World Finale.
We have witnessed Mumbai socialites, fashion designers, stylists, bloggers and the likes attending this glamorous event. Other than good food, drinks and good music the energy surrounding the event was at its peak. Personally I thoroughly enjoyed how well everyone was dressed and suited for the event. Fashion dosage well received.
All the finalists battled for three rounds; the first one had models walk in black & white outfits, the second round showcased models in Max Winter Collection and the third and final round had models adorned in the breath-taking collection by Narendra Kumar and Gavin Miguel. Manasi Scott kept the audience captivated with her spectacular performance. She has become my personal favorite, I was totally girl crushing on her.
In the countdown to the final runway, the judges decided to view the remaining contestants’ presentations as well and ultimately making their decisions for two finalists. The judges includes VASANTH KUMAR: Executive Director Max, ALEXANDRA PAROLINI: General Manager Elite Model Look, VICK MIHACHI: President Elite Management Worldwide, MARC ROBINSON: Licensee Elite Model Look 2016 India and Fashion Director, Actress NEHA DHUPIA and Fashion Designer NARENDRA KUMAR.
All the contestants were called once more on the runway to announce the two finalists.
