The Delhi model who wants an MBA degree: Kabir Singh
February 11, 2009

Lakme Fashion Week's autumn/winter instalment next month will see eight new faces from amongst 20 modelling hopefuls who cleared the auditions.

As part of an ongoing series, we spoke to finalists Pallavi Singh, Bindya Talluri, Arry Dabas and Neeraj Waghela. Today, Get Ahead brings you a first look at another new face:

Twenty one-year-old Delhiite Kabir Singh has been modelling for only a year, but you'd never know it if you saw his portfolio. This Mr India 2008 finalist has walked the ramp for the Wills India and Lakme Fashion Weeks last year and is also in big-brand ad campaigns for Yamaha, ITC and Levi's, among others.

Kabir plans to move to Mumbai [Images] to further his modelling career. "If I'm selected for the LFW again this year, it'll be a big break for me," he says. "I hope it's the beginning of bigger, better things for me."

But if it's not, this enterprising young man is fully prepared -- he's planning on enrolling for an MBA degree next year. When asked which career he wants to pursue in the long run, Kabir says, "I want to pursue modelling, but a post-graduate degree is a must. I mean, come on, man, even John (Abraham) is an MBA." Will we see this cool dude at Fashion Week again this time around? Stay tuned to find out.
