Mumbai, Feb. 14 -- Her recent films may not have made the kind of money she would have hoped for, but on the business front, Bipasha Basu is doing well.
The fashion retail website that she started in 2013 is popular with online shoppers. Now, as part of her plans to revamp it, the actor will also give an aspiring designer the chance to showcase their talent on the portal. "She plans to select a student from design schools across the city. The person will get to sell clothes and accessories that they have designed on Bipasha's website," says a source close to the actor.
Aspiring participants can submit their sketches via social media. The source says, "Bipasha will host the contest on Twitter. She will check out every design, and then shortlist one or two winners." The contest is likely to be held at the end of the month or early March.
Bipasha's spokesperson confirmed the news, and said, "Yes, she will encourage budding fashionistas via social media, but the specifics are yet to be locked."
