Okay, we’ll just start this article by revealing the fact that Aastha Pokharel is the only Nepali model for whom we use the term ‘Supermodel’. From bagging the Top 5 position at ‘Asia’s Next Top Model’ held in Singapore in 2012 to winning the title of ‘Kingfisher Supermodels 2’ in 2014 in Mumbai; this 24-year-old is literally ‘going places’. The first Nepali model to be featured in the prestigious ‘Kingfisher Calendar’ splits her time between Kathmandu and Mumbai.
Aastha recently shot for Buro 24/7, a luxury fashion house in Singapore; at various locations in Patan, Lalitpur for the project titled ‘Beauty in Chaos’. Photographed by Ivanho Harlim and Shysilia Novita; she is styled by Dora Ajoofri-Shrestha along with makeup by Larry Yeo and hair by Shysilia Novita.
The photographs from the photoshoot have been kept in an exhibition held at Leica Gallery in Singapore until July 11 and the proceeds from the purchase of the photos will go towards helping underprivileged children in Nepal supported by an NGO ‘Children & Youth First’.
Here are the photographs.
Such stunning pictures!
