Initially after auditions in Bangladesh and India, 15 participants will be selected from each country. Out of 15 women the top 10 participants of each country will be selected for the final round, who will compete for the crown of FFACE Anokhi. The finale will be held at Thailand in September 2019.
Speaking on this occasion Neil Roy, Founder-Director of FFACE said, "Anokhi is a platform where we believe that every shape and size of woman is beautiful. Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder. Size doesn't matter in beauty. Today we are going to announce the top 15 contestants of the FFACE Anokhi India and we are very excited about it".
Paromita Ghosh, Strategic Consultant-Director of FFACE said, "Beauty comes in every shape and size. Every woman is beautiful in her own way. No matter what shape or size you are, you should feel confident in your own skin. We want to promote the message about body positivity through our platform Anokhi as we firmly believe that every girl is special in her own way irrespective of her size and shape.
Indroneel Mukherjee, Fashion Director of FFACE added "Loving oneself isn't hard, when you understand who you exactly are. It has nothing to do with the shape of your face, the size of your eyes, the length of your hair or the quality of your clothes. It's so beyond all of those things and it's what gives life to everything about you. We hardly see any plus size model in the fashion industry. Why should shape and size be a barrier, It doesn't matter what weight, shape or form your body is, you should be proud of it."
