Determined, hardworking and honest is what defines 22 year old Dovine Venuh. Dovine’s interest in the fashion industry began at a young age, but it was after she finished Miss Phek 2012 pageant as the 2nd runner up that her career in the industry really picked up. Her success did not stop there as she went on to be crowned 1st runner up at Miss Nagaland 2012. She has been ruling the ramp at fashion shows and is an established face to designers. Read on to know more about Dovine Venuh.  

EASTERN MIRROR: What drew you to the showbiz industry?
Dovine Venuh: Ever since I was young, I found myself walking stages and ramps at school functions, college, and other gatherings. Then, it was mere participation but when I look back now I realize they were the baby steps that took me thus far.

EASTERN MIRROR: Tell us about your career in modeling. What was the biggest opportunity in your career?
Dovine Venuh: Into my early career I was fortunate to have had the encouragement from established names in the industry like Sir Rosou and Modovina. Their support was a silver platter for my foray into modeling. My first biggest opportunity was contesting in Miss Phek 2012, and then I went on to finish up as first runner up in Miss Nagaland the same year.
I am greatly privileged to have worked with many talented designers and models and some of prominent organizations like EGON and BASN. I was and I still am genuinely honored when I was called to judge during the annual Zoomax festival and choreograph Miss Phek too in 2014.
EASTERN MIRROR: How serious are you with your current profession?
Dovine Venuh: The profession is mostly opportunity based and highly seasonal, so there are a lot of uncertainties. Nevertheless, I believe doing what you love to do is just as much worth doing.
EASTERN MIRROR: How do you feel on the runway?
Dovine Venuh: Every single time I get on the ramp it is a whole new different experience and that is the best part of being in active fashion.

EASTERN MIRROR: What do you find the most challenging part about working in the fashion industry?
Dovine Venuh: Speaking in the context of Nagaland, although the industry has gained a household name, mostly being private sector and individualized, there is a lot of constraints and funding is always a matter of concern; sometimes we are not paid enough or not paid at all. I like to believe in the near future we will have more supporters and sponsors: then, we can really explore the vast possibilities and potential the industry has to offer.

EASTERN MIRROR: What do you love about modeling? What motivates you?
Dovine Venuh: The most interesting part about being a model is knowing you bring someone’s ideas and dreams to life. Indulging in a project that they are much passionate about gives us a whole new rejuvenated feeling. Also the best part is meeting new people and making new friends.

EASTERN MIRROR: One fashion rule it’s time to break?
Dovine Venuh: There are a lot of trends and rules that comes and goes. While we may agree with some trends, others we don’t. There is one thing we can all agree on-personal style. Let the rules be, make your own.
