This is a one of its kind event and also the first one that will be telecasted on a news portal (Guwahati Times- https://guwahatitimes.com/), informed the organizer, Raktim Kumar Das. “The main reason behind this show is to give the youths a proper platform to showcase the talents. No organizers have come up with events like these, what different we are doing is that instead of district-wise auditions and a grand finale, me and Mrinalini Das conducted district-wise events and the winners competed in the final event. So, we can say that we have tried our level best to pick the smartest contestants from the district level and gave them a different platform,” Das said.
Das added, “It was a long event as we started the district-wise events few months back and now in the four-day Grand finale we got the winners of ‘Grand Assam’ through a tough competition. The contestants had to go through different competitions like- Talent Round, Personal Interview Round, Question and Answer Round, etc.”
“The event was successful because of our team members including Abinash Saikia, Assistant event manager; Akash Paul, Grooming mentor; Dhanraj Boro; Dharitri Dutta; Bristi Gogoi, Muskan Basfor, Co-ordinator; Fashion Designers- Panchi Bora, Riyan Kamal, and Niva Devi,” Das further said.
Notably, this is the seventh year of Fashion Wizards Grand Events in the industry and the first season of Grand Assam.
