I have been a model walking for two years. I used to walk for Wow, Lao Fashion Week and many fashion events. As for this model casting, I want to return to Lao Fashion Week catwalk again because Lao Fashion Week 2017 is the biggest fashion event in Laos. It will be very exciting and a good for me to make new friends and share experience and lessons with other models and designers, said Ms Chindavan Senthavy (Sandy), 22, of Kaona Entertainment.

This is my first time to apply for model casting. I have prepared myself for this event for some time. I have been on a diet to keep my body in good shape. During these days, I practice walking every day, try to have good eating behaviours and take care of my skin, said Mr Paramy Sidavanh, 18, from the Vientiane-Ho Chi Minh School.
