Oct 16, 2015-When did you decide that you wanted to participate in the Face of House of Fashion 2015?
Arpana Upadhyay (AU): I had looked at it a year ago but I was in my final year of A-Levels so I didn’t think it would be the right time to try. So, this year, after completing my A-Levels, I thought it was time to give it a go.
Ayushman DS Joshi (AJ): I’ve always understood life to be a learning process. People have asked me why I wanted to participate even though I’m not new to modelling, but the thing is, you never stop learning, and this competition, for me, was all about re-learning.
AU: Words can’t describe it—it was absolutely amazing. I hadn’t expected to get so much out of it. I made so many friends, I learnt so much, and I feel that I’ve grown and developed so much since the initial training.
AJ: It was really good! I think the best part about the Face of House of Fashion was meeting all the great people.
So, how was today’s shoot?
AU: The shoot was great. I liked the whole idea behind the top story about people going back home to celebrate with their families—it’s not a theme that I’ve seen or read about before; so, that was great.
AJ: This is my second shoot with M&S. We did a Valentine’s Day special before and the setting was a lot more comfortable because it was on a couch (laughs). But this time, we’ve been shooting inside a local bus but it was definitely an enjoyable experience.
