These girls share the same dream; they all want to be models at the forthcoming Lakme Fashion Week.
For the first time ever, Lakme Fashion Week (LFW) took its model auditions to North East India.
Held in Guwahati in association with the North East India Fashion & Design Council, a pool of 110 talented, beautiful girls put their best foot forward to compete and bag a spot in the LFW Winter/Festive 2016.
We bring to you candid moments straight from the auditions.
