We were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to ask Nadim Saleem a couple of questions about his success.
Q. What is the best part of his job?
As a Fashion Show Producer & Choreographer, there is always a challenge and I enjoy a challenge and to overcome it. Its always a pleasure working with amazing designers from across the globe and to meeting and working with some amazing models and Make-up Artists. I love planning and delivering something from scratch and most of all, to recognize new talent and to give them an opportunity.
Q. What is the most difficult task in his job and has he ever had any regrets?
Back stage in any Fashion Event is crazy, but it is a good sign showing that everyone energy level is high and everyone is working as a team.
My biggest regret was when I Missed the opportunity to work in India with Miss World first runner up and many other super models who were recruited across the world for a major event but regrettably I had to miss out as my Indian Visa did not come through in time.
