LEGACY MIZWAN-2015

Mizwan Welfare Society was established by well-known poet and social activist late Kaifi Azmi in 1993 to empower the Rural Women. After his demise in 2002, Veteran Actress Shabana Azmi and her god child Namrata Goyal carried forward the legacy. In 2012, Fashion designer Manish Malhotra supported the cause by adopting the chikankari centres which created employment opportunities for women.

The Mizwan Fashion show was held on Saturday 4th April, 2015 in Mumbai.  The show saw the legendary Bollywood celebs coming together to support the noble cause. They walked the ramp with their children presenting Ace designer Manish Malhotra’s designs. He gave the traditional chikankari a modern avatar by using floral designs and applique work on crop tops, jackets, saris for women and bandhgalas and sherwanis for men. Here are the best moments of the show:

Sonam Kapoor is well known for her style and Rhea has been styling her sister for many years. They have a huge fan following and girls love Sonam Kapoor’s style and want to dress up like her. It does not come as a surprise as they have been working on this venture for quite some time and the great thing is they have tied up with Shoppers Stop– one of the biggest retail stores in India to launch their label.

RHESON pronounced as “reason” is a combination of their first names. The clothes will be designed by both sisters and a group of designers working under them.

It will have a range of Indo-western clothes, skirts, tops, shirts which every girl would love to have and wear.
