To be a model after marriage, the errand might seem an improbable proposition as priorities change after getting married. But we have the story of an awe-inspiring and resolute fashion designer Shamyuktha Prem, who not only lost 30 kgs just to take part in a beauty pageant but she also went on to win the title of ‘Mrs. India Universe Globe 2018.’

Mrs Shamyuktha Prem is the first contestant from Tamil Nadu to win this coveted award. After completing her graduation in fashion designing from Coimbatore, Shamyuktha studied fashion designing at the London School of Fashion. She worked for Prada luxury brand as a fashion stylist and ensemble curator in the year 2014 and she moved back to India and got married in 2015.

 

Before winning the beauty contest, Shamyuktha had taken part in ‘Mrs India Beauty Queen South’ which was held in Goa in June. She was ranked sixth in ‘Mrs India Galaxy’ award in New Delhi in September. From being a home maker to winning a beauty pageant contest, Shamyuktha has followed a very arduous and strict fitness regime to fulfil her dreams. 

In a candid chat, Shamyuktha says, “After marriage, my husband has been a big support. I started my preparations from January. During the month of June I gave the online audition for ‘Mrs India Universe Globe.’ The beauty pageant was held in Pune from November 21 to 27. There were 52 contestants and I was in the Gold category. There were several rounds such as fitness round and talent round. I was overweight and I had to lose 30kgs and follow a strict workout and diet schedule and trainers helped me a lot”.

She added that lot of people think that after marriage it is difficult to pursue your dreams, but even after getting married, people can follow their aspirations. After winning the national title, Shamyuktha Prem is now gearing up for an international pageant to be held next year.
