Nepal has created a new Guinness World Record for organizing highest altitude Fashion Show on the earth. The Mount Everest Fashion Runway was held at 5340 meters (17515 feet) elevation at Kala Patthar, near Everest base camp. 18 supermodels from 10 different countries walked the ramp to create history.
The event was part of Nepal Government’s Visit Nepal Year 2020 campaign. The Guinness world record registered the title and awarded a certificate to the organizers including Dr Pankaj Gupta from India and Ms Ramila Nemkul and Mr Riken Maharjan from Nepal.
The main objective of the fashion show was to create awareness about climate change and also to give a message to the world that Nepal is the destination for all activities. The designs, patterns and apparel used in the fashion show were biodegradable. The models also used probiotic detergent to lessen the carbon footprint.
