Beauty and fitness in perfect balance
Aparna Bajpai, founding CEO of BeingShe organization, confirmed that Dubai's biggest fashion and talent show will be back again for the 4th time this November. Each year, the pageant brings together women from different backgrounds to represent their countries in this empowerment journey.
Brand endorsement opportunities, international media exposure, modeling portfolio books and an annual membership are part of the many benefits for this year's participants not to mention haute couture dresses which they will be wearing for the grand finale night designed by the international Lebanese fashion designer Walid Atallah.
BeingShe Universe 2022 will kick off with the finalists' meet up and press conference during the second week of November followed by the finalists' 4 day training workshop which will be held from the 22nd to the 25th of November 2022 at AB Fitness, Mina Jumeirah Port Rashid, Maritime City, Dubai, UAE with the fifth day being the grand finale night.
We are excited to be partnering with BeingShe on this initiative as we strive to bring beauty and fitness in perfect balance. The models will be trained on nutrition and physical fitness by our certified inhouse trainers and will each get a personalized workout plan, said Bhupesh Kamble, owner of AB Fitness center, Dubai.
Lokesh Sharma known for Show Direction and Choreography for Indian and international Pageants, Fashion Awards and Fashion films will coach the participants on body posture & ramp walk training during the workshop.
Other sessions will include image makeover, beauty & fashion trends sessions, fitness, styling and personality development.
Aparna explained that the aim of this platform is to open doors of exposure and opportunities for aspiring models to be discovered by more brands whom they can collaborate with for their own personal and professional growth. Additionally, to amplify their voices for various causes/advocacy they each are passionate about.
