Hyderabad, August 17, 2022: Young FICCI Ladies Organisation (YFLO) , Hyderabad Chapter, a unique platform for young women from diverse professional and entrepreneurial backgrounds lined up a very interesting session, ‘Let’s redefine pretty’, which is about demystifying beauty world myths
Three distinct top models Nitya Arora, Anjali Lama, and Anjali Sivaraman – each of them with a different body type, breaking stereotypes in the modelling world are invited to speak at the session informed Ms. Sonali Saraf, Chairperson of YFLO Hyderabad Chapter
My great hope for us as young women is to start being kinder to ourselves so that we can be kinder to each other. To stop shaming ourselves and other people: 'too fat, too skinny, too short, too tall, too anything, Sonali Saraf, Chairperson, YFLO FICCI, Hyderabad added.
Modelling is a dream career for many. Many don’t know how to and where to start. On the other side, model means a perfect example or a personality. The gold standard for a long time that prevails in the industry is that you need to have a perfect body, looks, hair, beautifully proportioned eyes, a shapely nose, toned body and blemish-free skin. That is what a conventional perception we know about modelling.
But these three guest models are different. Each of them has a different body type, breaking stereotypes in the modelling world. They will be demystifying the modelling world.
They will speak about their journey, struggle, challenges, rejections they faced, and the lessons they learnt. They will offer advice to the aspiring younger generation who are eager to step into this glamourous world. How to maintain a positive outlook when we look at our bodies? Whatever industry one works in, body confidence and positivity play a major role. Now is the time to move beyond the stereotypes and understand the opportunities that lie ahead by instilling some confidence.
The session will be held on 22nd August at ITC Kohenur.
