Nepal enters Guinness Book of World Records for highest altitude fashion show on land: Organisers

 

Nepal has set the Guinness World Record for holding the highest altitude fashion show ever on land at 5,500 metres (18,044.62 ft) near the Mt Everest base camp, the organisers said.

Private clothing brand ‘Kasa,’ a shrinking glacier close to the Mt Everest basecamp, organized the international event. The audience had 47 members at the event which aimed to promote sustainable fashion, organisers said.

Cosimo De Medici, Prince of Tuscany, Italy, walked the ramp wearing silk clothing.

Nepalese designer Ramila Nemkul and Indian fashion analyst Pankaj K Gupta headlined the event. There were also 14 models from Finland and other countries, including Poland, Finland, Italy (Poland), the UK, Germany, and Nepal. All models, including one from Tuscany began their trek from Lukla (2860 metres or 9,383 feet) in northeast Nepal on Sept 12 and reached the venue the following day on September 22. This trek is rated moderate difficulty.

The fashion team have begun their descent down to Lukla and are scheduled to reach Kathmandu on October 1.

This show has now broken the previously held Guinness record also set by ‘Kasa’ of 5,340 metre in January 2020.

Organisers said the show was inspired by Lord Gautam Buddha’s principle of ‘ahimsa paramo dharma’ or non-violence is prime duty and accordingly all the attire was designed through non-violent means, in a sustainable manner.
