About making the cut to New York Fashion Week, which looks for nothing short of perfection, Sarish shared, "I attended 58 castings until I landed a show. Initially it was discouraging but I realized it was New York Fashion Week, the best of the best make the cut and you have to bring what you’ve got to the ramp.

"It was really tough but anything worth achieving is worth the effort. Luckily I’ve been blessed with the height requirement of 5’10. But you’ve got to be so much more than a pretty face to be selected. It was a great experience, I’ve earned so much more respect for runway models," the star girl further added.

One after another achievement, Sarish has been intent on adding more feathers to her hat of success. Her New Year is definitely rocking with amazing milestones she's achieving. HIP wishes Sarish all the very best for all her future endeavors.
