Bollywood stars glam up Mizwan Fashion show 2012The third year of Shabana Azmi’s NGO, Mijwan Welfare Society, hosted a fashion show, Mijwan Sonnets in Fabric 2012 on 3rd September at the Grand Hyatt, Mumbai. Leading Bollywood stars walked the ramp showcasing Manish Malhotra’s designs. The 2012 edition of the show showcased embroidery done entirely by the girls of Mijwan. Manish has translated work done by Mijwan girls into contemporary modern designs.
“In the last three years Manish recognized the talent in Mizwan and has brought it to the forefront with the world now seeing the finest work on his creations. He has broken the tradition and made the girls translate chikankari on net to upgrade their skills and help them earn more money. This has increased their negotiating power with men in their households,” says Shabana Azmi.
The show even had boxer Mary Kom onto the ramp: “She was shocked by the unexpected offer, but coming from a small village and humble beginnings, she’s a role model for our girls, who now believe their seemingly-impossible dreams are achievable, ” says Shabana, admitting that she was thrilled to hear that Mary’s favourite film is Masoom (1983) and song — ‘Tujhse naraaz nahin..’. “This show is not just about beauty and glamour but substance and empowerment too.”
