There’s a reason why we keep coming back to Manish Malhotra. His special charity fashion show, “Men for Mijwan,” is an essay in beauty and craft.
On April 1, Manish Malhotra presented his “Men for Mijwan” show in Mumbai, featuring Bollywood actors including Amitabh Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar, Akshay Kumar and Ranbir Kapoor.
Since 2009, Manish Malhotra has presented a yearly charity fashion show featuring the beautiful embroidery and craftwork of Indian women supported by the Mijwan Welfare Society, an NGO headed by actor Shabana Azmi and Namrata Goyal.
Manish Malhotra adopted the Kaifi Azmi Sewing and Embroidery Centre in Mijwan four years ago to help generate employment opportunities for women there. Under his guidance, Mijwan girls have a platform to showcase their work that today stands up to highest standards of craftsmanship.
Manish Malhotra has designed costumes and styled almost 1000 Indian films, so it’s no surprise that the front row was dominated by the usual who’s who of Bollywood: Jaya Bachchan, Urmila Matondkar, Dia Mirza, Sonali Bendre, Aditi Rao Hydari, Kalki Koechlin, Sushmita Sen, Kajol, Javed Akhtar, Sonakshi Sinha, Richa Chaddha, and Parineeti Chopra.
