Andreas von Estorff, Founder & CEO – modelmanagement.com adds “We are very excited to start this global modelling contest in India with our partner Percept. There is so much great undiscovered talent in India and we believe that the demand for Indian models will increase dramatically within the next years, placing Indian Super Models right at the top with the Bollywood Stars or Cricket Players. The fashion and modelling industries will be scrutinizing India’s New Faces at the Fresh Faces Grand Final in Barcelona where they will compete for a World title against models from other 40 countries.
“Having said that, beauty is everywhere and there is a ‘long tail’ demand for many different looks and modelling disciplines. We are not only targeting THE Supermodel. Together with Percept, we want to build the biggest Archive of Models and People for any kind of photo shoot or TV commercial. The demand for Models in Advertising in Media such as Websites, Print Magazines, Flyers, Brochures, Posters, Billboards and TV is huge and consistently increasing. So aside from nominating 2 winners, New Faces also gives many hopeful applicants the chance to find their place in the modelling industry”, concludes Andreas.
