YEREVAN. – Armenia will participate in the international annual model and designer contest International Best Male and Female Model World and Costa Blanca Fashion Week for the second time, official and exclusive representative of the contest in Armenia and the CIS states as well as the coordinator of the Spanish Sukier Model International organization David Gharibyan said at a press conference in Yerevan on Thursday.

Despite modeling business is not that developed in Armenia, a huge group of people is working to promote Armenian models and designers in the world market.

Gharibyan wants Armenia to become one of the world fashion industry centers and it indeed has potential.

According to him, the goal of the festivals is to disclose new talents in fashion business. Armenia’s Arthur Muradyan and Seda Tonoyan will compete for being the best models, while Tumas Yeranosyan and Alisa Harutyuyan will represent their collections at the design contest. 

Armenia was first presented at the Costa Blanca Fashion Week and International Best Male and Female Model World contests last year, where beginner Seda Serobyan was declared the best in female model category.
