It may be winter in Mumbai but that doesn’t mean things aren’t sizzling on the runway!
With the highly anticipated India Beach Fashion Week coming up in March, 9 panelists are on the hunt for confident, poised models to walk the ramp in Goa. Being Asia’s largest showcase for beach, swim, cruise line, and resort wear, guys and gals who think they’ve got what it takes to work the hottest styles made their way to Opa! Bar & Cafe to strut their stuff. The event, organized by Beach Worldwide, with Roposo as the social media partner, and Ikonic Professional as the hair and makeup partner, was an evening filled with anticipation and high hopes.
I had the opportunity to speak to luxury fashion designers Riddhi and Siddhi Mapxencar, founders of mapxencaRS, and had them share their thoughts on the upcoming show.
It’s been a while since you’ve been associated with IBFW. How are you feeling about the event? Can you share your thoughts?
Riddhi Mapxencar: “We’re always excited to be a part of India Beach Fashion Week, because we had started from the first season, so it’s always been special to us. The best thing about it is that it takes place in Goa – which is IBFW’s place of origin. What more can we ask for?”
What attributes are you looking for in the models?
Siddhi Mapxencar: “Well, of course, a very good face and a perfect body that’s something we always look for. The garment has to look extraordinary and the model makes a huge difference. Besides that, what really matters is confidence, walk, the poise, posture, and something that makes the model different from the rest.”
Make sure to check out the label mapxencaRS and find out why it’s been endorsed by Priyanka Chopra, Kareena Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, and Vidya Balan!
The model hunt began with the male models. One by one, each put their best foot (and numbers!) forward in hopes of being selected for IBFW 2017.
The ladies heat up the runway in bikinis and high heels, one stride at a time. What a smoke show!
Congratulations to the models who have been selected for the next round!

Make sure to watch out for these faces in Goa for IBFW 2017!
I’m headed to Lakme Fashion Week this weekend and I can’t wait to share my favourite looks with you! In the meantime, you can keep up with my shenanigans in Mumbai on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Roposo.
