ILA Institute of Grooming & Modeling

IIGM is a sister concern of International Women Polytechnic (IWP).

IWP began in 1998 and has been tirelessly working for the upliftment and empowerment of women. It has been offering multiple vocational courses which have attracted an innumerable number of women over these past two decades. Students with just Class 10 passing certification have taken admission in IWP courses and gone on to acquire their diplomas after intensive training and study. Today they are successfully working as entrepreneurs or with leading organizations in various industries.

With the ever-increasing presence of media, there has been a manifold increase in the demand for professionals in the glamorous modeling industry for ramp, print, and advertising etc. Keeping this in mind IIGM along with IWP have designed and developed a course to prepare aspiring young men and women for the modeling industry. The training for this course is imparted by a team of highly experienced and talented professionals from the fashion, lifestyle and modeling industry. Some of them have even worked with the Miss India's for many years. This team is personally led by ILA Kumar Valia herself.

IIGM is located at a very prime location making it convenient for everyone to access it. Students will find reaching IIGM convenient as it is right on the Metro Network (Blue line). The institute also offers state-of-the-art infrastructure for training the students along with hostel provisions as well as a transport facility.

  • ILA Kumar Valia, I have respected her for the last 15 years ever since I met her as the Director of Shoot Talent Management. She always has the unique power of scouting the right candidates to be a Super Star, with her vast experience in the industry and her huge global travel experience she understands the potential in a talent who can go ahead a long way. Ila is extremely dedicated and organised in her planning and execution to make a success of any business she takes charge. | Liza Varma

  • I had first met ILA when she managed me after winning the Miss India title in 2005. At first look she looked rather unassuming and sweet but mind you here was a fireball who meant business and was completely no nonsense! I learnt many ropes of the trade from her and the quality to say no when needed. ILA has been naturally protective of all her prodigies yet inculcating a sharp business acumen in us. She has been a friend and there is no better person than her to mentor and shape future talents. I wish her nothing but the best in her new innings. | Amrita Thapar
    Former Miss India Universe 2005
