Dr. Surpreet Chopra and Pooja Sharma gracefully secured the first and second runner-up positions, respectively, reflecting the multifaceted nature of married women’s roles in society.Speaking of fashion week, Kirti Choudhury, the founder of VogueStar, says, “Creativity, innovation, quality, and sustainability are the main levers for the continuous development of the Indian fashion system. The remarkable change we are presenting today proves to be full of events that demonstrate the embodiment of fashion is all about you putting efforts into the non-changeable things that we are all blessed with.”
