First steps for this pretty face

Renuca Singh Thakuri, stepped into the modelling world recently. A dreamer and believer, she talks about her experience in the fashion world with TGIF:

Who is Renuca Singh Thakuri?

Renuca Singh Thakuri is currently testing waters in the modelling world and is one of the fresh

faces in the fashon industry.

Did you always aspire to become a model?

Ever since I was a child I was fascinated by the world of fashion. Yes, I’ve always wanted to be a model as far as

I can remember.

What has been your most memorable shoot so far? Why?

My photo shoot with Bipin Maharjan is the most memorable one so far because his concept was fresh and new and working with him was fun.

What do you like the most about being a model? What is the most challenging aspect about being a model?

I love to be in front of the camera. The most challenging part is when you have to change your personality with

every costume change. You can’t be static in only one look and sometimes adapting to changes does not come easy.

What’s it like during a photo shoot? Do you get nervous?

I love the camera and I don’t get nervous at all. But I do get excited and make mistakes!

Who are your favourite Nepali designers? And who is your absolute favourite?

My favourite Nepali designers are Bishwo Gautam, Subexya Bhadel and Tenzin Tseten Bhutia. Among them I love Bishwo Gautam’s work because his designs are more classy and unique.

In your view what makes Nepali fashion unique?

Nepali fashion is unique because the fabrics and designs are different from the rest of the world.

Your dream modelling assignment?

My dream job would be to walk at the Milan Fashion Week and work for the best international designers.

What can we expect from Renuca next?

You’ll see me in music videos soon.

What do you plan to do this Christmas?

I will be spending some time in the evening with a few friends at a party.

Getting personal

Single or dating?

Single and not ready to mingle yet.

One item you can’t live without?

My phone.

Do you Facebook, Tweet or Instagram?

Most of the time I use Facebook.

Movies or Music:

Music for sure. It takes me to a

different world.

I love Lisa Hayden and wish to be

like her.
