Aurangabad, 9nd April 2017: It was an evening of excitement, romp and candor for the ladies of Aurangabad, who showed class and finesse as they walked the ramp, at the Auditions for the Miss & Mrs Curvy Queen 2017, that were held at Prozone Mall, the first ever beauty pageant being held for curvaceous and plus sized women in the country.
Speaking about the pageant, Trishla Rane, Organizer of the Pageant, and Director of 4th Dimension Media said, “This pageant will feature women who till now have not been given their due in the fashion/ glamor world.” She added, “It Is always felt that women have to be lean or size zero to enter the fashion and glamor industry. We are here to break those stereotypes and give plus size women a platform full of opportunities to live their dreams. The idea behind the concept is to explain the true meaning of Fitness which is often thought to being slim by starving oneself. “
Trishla went on to add, “Such pageants for the plus sized women have been held in various North American and European and African Countries. However India being the third country in the count of overweight population, never had any such pageant. Hence we thought of coming up with this contest for the curvy women of India. Also the agenda of the contest is to propagate healthy living and give the true meaning of fitness, which does not mean to starve yourself.”
Neha Chanchlani, Co-Organizer of the Pageant, Owner, The Bounce Company and Studio Strands Salon said, “I have been thinking about hosting such a pageant for a long time. We are looking to address a fashion segment which was hitherto ignored in the country.” She added further, “Now we have fashion brands coming up in the country which are specifically addressing the fashion needs of plus sized women in the country.”
Neha went on to say that, “The initial response to our pageant has been phenomenal. We have had registrations from different parts of the country.”
