Kohima, Nov. 24 (EMN): In an effort to promote the cultures and traditions of Nagaland globally, ‘Miss Hornbill International’, a mega International event will be conducted as part of the Hornbill Festival from next year onwards (2022).

Organised by Vogue Entertainment Nagaland, the event envisages uplifting talented youths in the arena of the fashion and beauty pageant industry and by creating platforms to train the upcoming models, fashion enthusiasts, and promote potential Naga designers.

Managing Director of Vogue Entertainment Nagaland, Dode Nakro said: “We see that society is taking more interest in this space of profession”. Therefore, the organisation plans to intensify its vision by organising Miss Hornbill International.

He further informed that the organisation is venturing into this new event in Nagaland to create a wider platform not only for Nagas but participants beyond Nagaland and the Northeast. The event aims at building relationships amongst regions and countries and ultimately making it into an international event.

The main objective is to promote the cultures and traditions of Nagaland globally, transmitting growth to ethnicity, expanding the pageantry, fashion, and tourism industry, and taking Nagaland beyond, Nakhro added.

It also seeks to foster long-term policy for pageantry and tourism, promote local artisans and stakeholders in beauty pageants, as well as create global liaison.

He also spoke about the significance of the crown for ‘Miss Hornbill International’. The “unique crown” will have the touch of the Hornbill bird and the stature of the current 12 districts of Nagaland, which will be one of the substantial highlights of the mega event, he said and added that they are in process of collecting materials for the crown. It has also assigned some jewellery designers to design the crown.

He added that they would be in touch with people from other countries for the event soon. The age bar for participants has been set from 18 to 26 years.
