The best thing about Fashion Week -- whenever and wherever it happens -- is that it gives the glamour industry a sudden spurt of ideas, a lot of new designs, and a slew of fresh, new faces.
Last month's event in Delhi was no different. We asked a few experts to tell us about the new models they think stood out. Here are the ones they picked.
Name: DIANA PENTY (she got the most votes!)
Age: She turns 21 in November.
Hometown: Mumbai. Her mother is Christian, her father Parsi. She has never faced any opposition from her parents, who have been extremely encouraging about her decisions.
Height: 5 ft 10".
Vital stats: On the ultra-skinny side.
Modelling history: She has been with the Elite modelling agency for almost a year. Penty has completed her Bachelors in Mass Media from St Xavier's, Mumbai, and wants to focus on her modelling career. She feels the time is right to step on the accelerator. She hopes to pursue studies at a later date but, for now, being a model is all she wants to think of.
First show: The Indo-Italian Festival held in three cities in September 2005. She did the show for Trussadi and Ferre. Penty has done a lot of ramp shows with Marc Robinson, a print campaign for Westside, and a shoot for Wendell.
