To encourage new entrants in the fashion circuit and groom them well, a three-day workshop on modelling as a career was organised by Glam Shine Talent Management at Rourkela recently.

“This industry will grow rapidly in Odisha if such basics are cleared and will help in creating a platform for aspiring models and they can also earn through this profession,” said Prasant.
