Titled as ‘Mount Everest Fashion Runway’, the event was held at an elevation of 5340 metre at Kalapathar, near the Everest base camp on January 26. Models from across the world, including Finland, Italy, Sri Lanka and Singapore, sashayed on the runway.
The main purpose behind the affair was to raise awareness about climate change as well as to promote sustainable fashion, a press release issued by Nepal Tourism Board said.
Moreover, the team used bio-degradable designed clothes, shampoo, detergent, waterless bath and solar technology to avoid any sort of environmental pollution.
The show was attended by Kedar Bahadur Adhikari, secretary of the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, and Nandini Lahe Thapa, senior director of Nepal Tourism Board, among others.
