KATHMANDU, Sept 23: Ritesh Raj Gurung and Rubina Thapa were named the winners under male and female categories respectively in ‘En Vogue’ modeling contest that was held in Kathmandu’s Annapurna Hotel on Friday.

Altogether 64 aspiring Nepali models contested at the event that was organized by Kathmandu based clothing store House of Fashion. 

Similarly, Lomash Dhamala was the first runner up and Sushant Nepal was the second runner up in the male category while Priyanka Rani Joshi was the first runner up and Dipika KC was the second runner up in the female category.  

The contestants were seen flaunting designs from popular fashion designers and collectives in seven sequences. 

“The demand is high for well groomed models in Nepal. Fashion modeling is a thriving profession and ‘En Vogue’ is a stepping stone for these young models,” said Oshima Banu, CEO/founder of House of Fashion.      

House of Fashion trained the aspiring models for one month before the final event. Apart from learning the etiquettes of runway modeling, the participants also took several personality development classes. The final ‘En Vogue’ contest was a platform where contestants were judged on the basis of the knowledge they had brought from their grooming sessions. 
This is the fourth edition of ‘En Vogue’, which first started in 2012.
