Beauty and panache blended the afternoon with 39 girls sashayed down the the ramp,wearing funky fashion wear on friday at the miss india world wide hunt at hotel president. The event was judged by choreographer rocky poonawala and fashion designer nivedita saboo. Speaking on the fashion market saboo says,”There is not tremendous effect of recession on the fashion world.” The ramps scorchers besides walking the ramp even performed to show their talents. Speaking on the occasion,rocky poonawala says,”Pune has immense potential and the participants prove it here. However,A common trend that I have witnessed is that talent is gradually becoming synonymous of dance. I would appreciate if participants take up more of indian traditional art forms like painting,classical singing and dancing. This would not infuse more confidence in the participant but also help them compete internationally,where comparison between Indian and western art will become difficult. And even if somebody chooses to show western dance as their talent then they should be well prepared with it.”
There were several rounds like talent round and the other round was based on their speaking ability. Music was composed by Euphoria band. The result will be declared in Delhi on January 21.
