The organizer’s for Top Model UK Nepal seem to be going all out for this event as they have roped in Saurav Acharya who’s a household designer in Nepal. Acharya will be designing all together for 3 sequences and 1 sequence of evening gowns just for the girls which all together is 35 outfits for the 14 contestants. Though the designer is based in Nepal his designs are set to dazzle those attending on the 30th of July at Princes Hall, Aldershot. His designs have previously been exhibited at Nepal Fashion Week 2007, 2008 and 2010, also not to forget Miss Mongol 2011. Acharya believes that fashion is about comforts and personality. His next project is designing for an upcoming Nepali film Gandarva which is based on the Gautam Buddha period, Acharya who loves a challenge is willing to push his boundaries and outdo himself.
Having started off by studying diploma in Fashion from IEC and later doing bachelors in Fashion Design from LBEF (Sikkim Manipal Uni), Saurav has been managing his own boutique store Ministry of Style in Durbar Marg for the past year. He refers to himself as a versatile designer with a knack for designing gent’s suits to ladies evening gowns.
Miss UK Nepal 2010 Nabina Gurung has also been confirmed to be part of the event; she’s a show stopper! Now I wonder if Saurav will be designing her dress too.
