JAMMU, Dec 17: Daughter of J&K, Anisha Safaya has won Mrs Aesthetic title at Mrs Universe 2018 and secured place for India in Top 25 bringing proud to her country.
The glamorous event took place in the city of Cebu, Philippines, last week. From the 88 countries being represented, Anisha secured a place for India in the top 25. The top 10 are yet to be announced and Anisha holds high hopes to be part of that list.
Anisha Safaya is Mrs India 2018 and one of the youngest women Vice-Presidents in an investment bank in London, United Kingdom. She was also recently conferred with ‘Times of India Women Achievers Award 2018’ for her achievements in the social sector. In addition to her day job, Anisha is also the founder of ‘Disha – The Multifaceted She’. It is an organisation that works towards capacity building and economic empowerment of women in strife torn areas and conflict zones around the world.
On the Mrs Universe 2018 platform, Anisha was representing the delicate yet fierce, classy yet alluring Indian women. Her aim was to showcase the rich art and cultural heritage of India to the world.
At her orientation, Anisha chose to represent Jammu & Kashmir, the State she was born and raised in. She shined in a black pure crape silk gown with Kashmiri hand embroidery, accompanied by hand made pure pearl jewelry from BHZ Jewelers.
Her national costume was a fusion of the lotus and the sun rays peaking across the snow flakes of the Himalayan mountains ranges; background showcased a blend of India’s royal elegance in subtlety. The design of the snowflake feature patterns from Kashmir’s handwoven carpets.
Anisha says, “It was an honour to represent India at Mrs Universe 2018 and I am happy that I could introduce the rich heritage of my country to the whole world. I thank everyone who has been part of my journey – my mentors, designers, trainers, my family, my friends and my husband Mitesh Solanki, who has been supporting me hand in hand through my journey.”
The biggest inspiration in her life is her mother, Usha Safaya, who raised her as a single parent.
