The countdown is on for one of Auckland’s ritziest, glitziest and most dazzling annual events.
On Saturday September 15, the Auckland's Mahatma Gandhi Centre will be transformed into a Bollywood wonderland as gorgeous Kiwi-Indian contestants go for gold, hoping to be crowned Miss India NZ 2018.
As contestants battle it out in a wide variety of categories, spectators will be treated to an extravaganza of fashion, music and dance that blends the very best of Indian and New Zealand cultures.
For event producer Rhythm House, there is nothing else quite like it.
“For those who love fanfare and razzle-dazzle this event is unmissable. It’s the ultimate celebration of the Kiwi-Indian culture, showcasing a unique and diverse mix of ethnic backgrounds, talents, and passions.”
There’s no debating the popularity of the Miss India NZ event. Every year it’s a sell-out show, and with this year promising to be the most spectacular one yet.
The contestants spend many months honing their skills in preparation for the show, which will see them compete in everything from Q and A’s, to catwalks, to traditional dance. Each participant will be given a chance to shine, plus the opportunity to lay claim to a string of different titles, such as Miss Talent, Miss Potential Model – and the coveted Miss Popular title, earned via public voting which finishes on September 15.
