Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/Resort 2011 is coming up in March 2011, and the action is already heating up.
An jury of fashion experts yesterday selected seven aspiring models for Lakmé Fashion Week Summer/ Resort 2011. The new models are Angela Jonsson, Bryndis Helgadottir, Keylie Bodeker, Lekha Anatharaman, Rikee Chatterjee, Reha Sukheja and Sophia Dgneid. Here they are:

Some interesting things we noted:
- Almost 120 models turned up to audition, a whopping increase of more than 80% since the last season of LFW. Good to know interest is increasing, but quantity doesn’t always mean quality. Fingers crossed on this one.
- Foreign models are coming to India in hordes! While the dusky beauties still dominate, are growing foreign imports a sign of things to come? Hmmm… hopefully the Balance of Fashion Payments remains tilted in India’s favour, eh?
FYI, the model selection jury comprised well-known designers Nachiket Barve and Rocky S; fashion show directors Marc Robinson and Lubna Adams; photographer Jatin Kampani, Vogue India editor Priya Tanna, along with Anil Chopra (CEO – Lakmé Lever), and Sujal Shah (Vice-President & Head of Fashion for IMG India).
