12 talented, edgy, and creative influencers are geared up to battle it out in the pursuit of becoming India’s next top influencer
Myntra Fashion Superstar (MFS) will not only give digital influencers across the country a platform to display their creativity to the judges and viewers, but also an opportunity to alter mindsets and create a larger impact on the community. Premiering on Myntra Studio via the Myntra app and Voot, the much-awaited digital reality show has an esteemed panel of judges featuring India’s all-time favorite influencers Kusha Kapila, Aashna Shroff, Ankush Bahuguna, and Santu Misra, led by fashion doyen, Manish Malhotra.
MFS-3 commences with 12 very talented contestants who will battle it out for the coveted title of India’s next big fashion influencer, through 8, 45-minute episodes. The contest has been designed to progressively eliminate contestants as the episodes advance until the grand finale where the judges handpick their favorite influencer to be crowned with the title of Myntra Fashion Superstar. This season, the influencers will also engage the audience through interactive live vlogs, as opposed to only traditional static video diaries with sheer creativity at the forefront. In return, the jury gives ‘likes’ to score the influencers that determine their future in the show.
The theme I Wear My Story is about revealing the actual person behind the persona. In this digital world, most people hide behind camera tricks and forced transitions and often show the world unauthentic social media versions of themselves. ‘I wear my story’ is about staying true to one’s self and expressing one’s own journey in his or her own style, unfiltered and authentic, through fashion. It is about celebrating one’s self for who the person is, with all their inherent shortcomings, struggles, and glories, articulated through innovative fashion and beauty content. The key ingredients to becoming an influencer with the potential to impact mindsets and drive conversations that matter within their community are what the judges are looking for this season.
