He is a mentor and trainer for most of the upcoming models from Uttarakhand. He has trained models on different runway walks and helped them in exhibiting the art of their designers. When models are decked up with long and heavy attires, high heels and hefty jewelry, walking with grace and poise becomes an impossible task. It is here where the art of fashion choreography comes into play.
Training models on how to walk with confidence and grace so as to accentuate the collection designed by the designer and not being too stiff or theatrical are the magic Kapil weaves into his every show.
