Speaking to media persons at Robert Naorem Studio and Academy near Uripok overbridge, Robert Naorem said, “Even though there are many talented individuals in Manipur, only few opt for venturing into fashion and modelling. In order to bring out these hidden talents and to carve a path for the aspiring individuals, Miss Manipur Queen 2017, a first of its kind beauty contest in Manipur, would be organised and the winners will get a chance to represent Manipur in the Femina Miss India beauty pageant”.
Around 25 models will audition at Robert Naorem Studio and Academy on March 12. The contestants will undergo a three day grooming and training session from March 13 under renowned Indian choreographer and groomer, Achla Sachdev.

The contestant who pass the screening will get a chance to participate in the Femina Miss India Finale, 2017, at Mumbai, Robert Naorem said, adding that all the costs will be borne by the institute and donors.
