Arthi Venkatesh

– Diksharth Jage

The qualities that characterise a lady are quick wit combined with attractive looks, a kind heart and a killer attitude to carry it off. One lady who exemplifies all these qualities is renowned fashion model Arthi Ventakesh. This beauty with brains sets the ramp on fire with her confidence and panache.  

Her journey into the fashion industry began when she accidentally met fashion designer Prasad Bidappa in Bangalore bin 2009. He convinced her to try modelling and now Arthi has him to thank for her entry into the world of glamour.

Since her foray into the fashion industry, Arthi has had about 250 runway shows and more than 350 photo shoots to her credit. The best part is she doesn’t seem to be slowing down.

Arthi divides her time between India and New York. Her first introduction to the international fashion industry happened at the New York Fashion Week. Here, she was noticed by Jovani and Morrell Maxie and walked for them at the New York Bridal Fashion Week.

Arthi seems to have a penchant for trying different things and exploring new avenues. Along with her modelling career, she has also decided to venture into acting. Her debut film is titled ‘Solo’ and also stars actor Dulquer Salman. This Tamil- Malayalam bilingual film is helmed by acclaimed filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar.

 

The Fashion Show was one of the biggest events of Alegria 2017. Talented designers across many colleges along with their models showcased some of their most extraordinary outfits. It was only fitting that an accomplished fashion icon like Arthi is invited to judge this extravaganza.

 

Arthi came to Alegria on February 9, 2017, and set the stage on fire with her style and confidence. She was a great inspiration and form of encouragement for all the participants. The event was an instant hit and Arthi’s presence added the gold lining to the already dazzling group of contestants.
