The former Miss Ahmadabad swapped her engineering degree for the bright lights of the catwalk.
Pooja Mor is set for soaring success after her international début at Louis Vuitton Cruise on May 6, 2015.
The breathtakingly beautiful show, at Bob Hope’s Palm Springs estate, was the perfect platform for Pooja’s promising career.
She walked in a number of neutral colour outfits by Nicolas Ghesquière, which combined perfectly with the backdrop of Hope’s iconic former residence.
The structured modern pieces, loose boy shorts and belly cut outs created something of a masterpiece. Pooja flaunted the stunning collection fearlessly.
She said: “I knew I could relate to the clothes and walk the way I was supposed to. It was so empowering for me.”
Pooja captivated the audience as she strutted down the runway, where Kanye West, Selena Gomez and Miranda Kerr filled the front row.
Unfazed by being amidst big names, she is undoubtedly destined for success.
Having signed with Anima Creative Management in March 2014, Pooja is quickly becoming the new ‘It’ girl on the fashion and modelling scene.
Originally studying for a degree in engineering, the Mumbai girl swapped the world of technology for the bright lights of the catwalk.
Not uncommon in Asian families, her decision was much to the disappointment of her parents, who felt the profession was for the fickle-minded.
But after clinching the title of Miss Ahmadabad in 2012, her hunger to succeed as a certified model continued to grow. She is a popular model at India’s biggest fashion week, Lakmé.
Her subsequent success at Louis Vuitton’s show simply proves she belongs to the fashion industry.
Pooja is hopeful for the future, saying: “As a model you have this great opportunity to see yourself transform and evolve. The possibilities are endless.”
